Good find on a rainy nite

We arrived in Quebec City late one afternoon and were set for seafood. It was a very rainy night and the concierge recommended Café du Monde in the Old Port. We caught a taxi from the Hilton and were off. We had no reservations but got there early and got a table pretty quickly. Atmosphere was good... read more

Nice resto but a little hard to find. Very friendly staff. Food was decent for the prices. Has outdoor seating overlooking the water.

Went for a quick bite in the early evening. I don't see the appeal of the restaurant. The ambiance seemed kind of cold, more like a warehouse. The food was good, especially the creme brulee. The service was excellent. The restaurant has a wide selection of both wines and cocktails. Prices are very high.

Went here after the circus. No wait for a table and the food came quickly. A nicely designed restaurant and an attentive waitress. Food was about average for the area, but the creme brulee was a step above. Enjoyed a nice time.

Great Location on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. The food is good, not great, the atmosphere is a bit rushed. Lunch selections are rather limited and do not include any seafood. It feels like a well managed chain restaurant with a great location.

We went last night and really liked it. A show took place right beside, and the ambiance was quite relaxed. The staff is wonderful: two ladies attended us with kindness and chirping attitude. Really pleasant. Food wise, I would give it a 6/10. The appetizers of shrimps or calamari were terrible. Who batters such small seafood to the point that... More

Nice food with a very wide selection including local seafood and steaks with a view over the river. We enjoyed our meals and loved the creme brulee in particular! This restaurant has a huge drink list with a wide selection of both wines and cocktails. There is sure to be something here to please! I recommend booking in advance as... More

Great atmosphere, view and food. We sat in a table overlooking the river. The ambiance is great and our waiter was very helpful. The lunch special includes your regular soup or salad plu main entree. In addition this restaurant includes espresso ( without extra charge). I had the tapas plate which was perfect for someone who does not like large... More

Went here on our last evening in Quebec. Was recommended by our hotel. There was a lineup and we got seated fairly quickly. Ask for a seat on the deck or near a window if you can as the view is great! We ordered the mussels and the grilled salmon. The salmon was mediocre at best and the mussels weren't... More

We were there for dinner one night. The staff was very friendly. We had oysters, smoked salmon dish, steak frites and my son had the salmon from the kids menu. It was all delicious!!! The view was great and we were all happy after a day of walking around the city.
