The chef at the Champlain seem to get it right every time in combining regional delicacies in what is a very unique culinary experience. If you are adventurous (and have the budget to afford it), go for the chef's recommendations or ask you server to recommend his favorite combination of plates based on your tastes. Wine, champagne, and port parings... More

I went to the Champlain at the Château Frontenac this evening. Since it's been refreshed, the Champlain still gets it's contemporary look that makes the Château so nonesuch. The service was perfect, meat cooked perfectly while enjoying a nice view of the Saint-Laurence River. If you visit Quebec City, don't forget to eat at the Champlain restaurant !!

My husband liked his halibut but it was very small. My chicken was scarce on the plate filled with other things. This is a very expensive restaurant and unfortunately was not what it could or should be. I gave it three stars because the staff is attentive and did give me a lovely tasty cake for my birthday.

For the price, I was surprised there was no egg station, someone to cook your egg to order. But lots of cold cuts,etc.

We always enjoyed the dining room here in the past (ten years ago) but this time the food was average at best. The dinner menu was very limited, the meal was overpriced and, quite frankly, not very good. Breakfast was even worse. If those weren't tasteless, powdered eggs I'd be surprised.

Three of us had dinner -- a longtime dream of one of our party -- just to be in the beautiful Frontenac. The food was good; the service was fun, friendly, appropriate and almost 100% attentive. We each chose the discovery menu, which allowed us to choose three appetizer sized courses and a cheese course and dessert. The Coconut Hot... More

I had the 7 course meal with 3 glasses of wine. There is a lack of generosity on the plate (minus one star) because a five star restaurant should show some generosity. Portions could be 10-15% larger without a problem. There is also a lack of generosity in the room. Some restaurants have free wi-fi for their customers. At the... More

The Champlain at the Frontenac Castle/Hotel in Quebec City is a great way to enjoy a wonderful meal and a great view of the old Port in Quebec City. The Hotel is huge and impersonal, the restaurant is just the opposite. Dinning is quiet, relaxed and the service is perfect. It is a great place for a business dinner or... More
