It's hard to visit Québec City and not have at least one meal at Le Café du Clocher Penché. For me, it's the best table in town. When you walk in, you're welcomed with smile. The restaurant is located in the old National Bank in St. Roch. It’s trendy and busy, but not too loud. The menu will please all.... More

Small and excellent menu with a special each day, place was full and busy with locals. Tablecloths with paper on top, good quality dishes and glasses. Service was prompt and friendly. We started with drinks, then had the lunch menu which includes a starter, a main, plus coffee or tea. We had the soup (gazpacho made with tomato, watermelon and... More

A truly outstanding restaurant with pleasant staff that includes the owners! Have been several times and it is a must when we are in Quebec. Everything from the cocktails to desert was fabulous. Appetizers this time included raw oysters with cucumber ice and a cold tomato soup both of which were fantastic. A veal and polenta main course for two... More

My wife and I had a fabulous meal at Le Cafe du Clocher Penché. The food was superb and reasonably priced. The neighbourhood is wonderful, not too touristy. The restaurant was lovely at night with large open windows and the sights and sounds of the neighbours drifting in. Several large tables of friends and family. Our waiter was passionate and... More

I loved the food at this place. The waitress was delightful and made us Americans feel like we fit right in with the Québécois. The asparagus soup was really tasty. My halibut was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful, and the other individuals in my party felt the same way about their steak entree and beef tongue pasta. We enjoyed some... More

This excellent bistro was recommended to us by our concierge at the Chateau Frontenac (see my 5 star review) a wonderful hotel set in the heart of the old City. We walked for 45 minutes to Le Clocher Penche, and although packed with locals had a truly excellent lunch with immaculate service. Highly recommended to all who enjoy really good... More

We don't come here often, but make a point to try and eat here whenever we're in Quebec City every year or two. Situated in the st-roch neighborhood, and well known for their creative cuisine using local and seasonal Quebec ingredients, this resto is off the typical tourist path. Highly recommend coming for the weekday lunch as it is your... More
