Christmas lunch

Turns out there were quite a few places open, but we were pleased to have eaten here. A nice room with a lovely buffet meal. It... read more

We had my husband's birthday dinner here. We both ordered the 5 course tasting menu. It was "blind" so we didn't know what we were getting until each course was delivered to our table. It did not disappoint. The food was not only unique and excellent, but also very pretty. The presentation was beaurtiful. The service was also very good.... More

We had a great view of the river from our table, although it was dark so couldn't see well. The food was amazing (I had duck and my fiance had the venison). The restaurant was very romantic and perfect for couples.

With the cold and snow we had, we decided to eat in one of the hotel restaurants. The food, service and drinks were all excellent. One of the best meals we had in Quebec.

The decor is visually pleasing. The portions are small but excellent. Had a table with excellent view of the St.Lawrence river. Enjoyed the cocktails. Overall a pleasant dining experience. This restaurant is more for adults then young children. Expensive.

We made reservations in early December for the Christmas buffet (we chose the 1PM sitting). I have been lucky enough to have some great food around the world, and the food at the Christmas buffet was as good as anything I have had anywhere. The turkey was a bit dry, but the lamb and Beef Wellington were superb, as was... More

We were there for New Year's day brunch and as stated above the food was fantastic, unfortunately the preparation, planning and service was not so good. Running out and having to wait 5 - 10 mins for the main course was not good, but returning three times in search of vegetables and giving up in the end was really bad.... More

This place is located within Chateau Frontenac. We are guests of the hotel and made reservations for Champlain, the hotels premier restaurant. Service was excellent, but that can't make up for the ordinary food. The place is by far not cheap, however portions are. This could be excused if not for its complete lack of flavor... nothing unique, in fact... More

We opted for the 5-course Christmas dinner and booked in advance and it was worth it. We loved the food and ambience.

This is the place to be for Christmas Brunch. I normally do not like buffets but the variety of mains is great. The dessert table is vast. The service is absolute. The decor is rich and warming. The only thing is to be aware of the costs. $75 per person and they leave you no choice for the tip amount.... More
