Excellent food and service - Bistro style

This bistro has a small menu with a choice for everyone red meat, fish, vegetarian, ris de veau, boudin, etc.). The plates presented are well done, with care for details. I took the salmon's tartare. It was fresh and delicious. Everyone of us took a different plate and we were all satisfied. The... read more

The food, atmosphere, and service are all to a very high standard. A friendly place with employees who love what they do and chefs who care about what they present to the guests.

We visited Le Clocher Penche at the suggestion of a shop keeper (and confirmation from trip advisor) for our anniversary while visiting Quebec City. The ambiance accommodates your outing, whether a fancy special occasion or a more casual night out with friends. The menu offered numerous delicious options for all courses and our server was extremely welcoming and helpful. We... More

First ate here a year ago, went twice for brunch and promised myself I would eat here every chance I get! They managed to squeeze 3 of us in for Saturday brunch as we only had 45 minutes before flying out. Had beef croquette, more meaty than expected and very delicious. The complimentary sweet served first is very good, fruity... More

Read somewhere that this was a good place for brunch. And it sure is. Went there on a Saturday morning and found the place empty at around 10am. Thought it was not that good because there were not that many clients. I was wrong. They have a very good variety of brunches, and I settled for what i can only... More

This is a exceptional restaurant. We were seated quickly. Service was great. Food was terrific, but hoped for a surprise taste somewhere.....didn't get it. Absolutely would go back. The cod was perfectly cooked and veggies done to perfection. Oysters.....good but tomato/pepper served with them overpowering. Lemon and horseradish with hot sauce a much better choice. Go if you can. A... More

Nice bistro atmosphere, well located in quartier St-Roch but service was pretty slow, the potage was too creamy and the catch of the day without flavor. Excellent strawberry cheese pie though. So yes, worth at least a try...

This restaurant rates among the top in Quebec City. We were promptly seated as our reservation was for 6 pm and reservations are recommended as the place fills up quickly. Our waiter was efficient and friendly. We started with an excellent 'starter' of octopus that was fantastic. Our main courses included a veal dish for two that was outstanding and... More

We booked this restaurant after reading a review in our guidebook and it was well worth it. The waitress was very friendly and the restaurant is lovely inside. The food was both beautiful to look at as well as to eat. We both had a salad to start which was almost too pretty to eat! The wine list was extensive... More
