Little gem in unlikely location!

Don’t be put off by the location of the restaurant (in a hotel off the highway in suburban Ste-Foy), the food and service are excellent! Lunch yesterday with another couple from Québec who recommended it and we were delighted with the choice. It specializes in tartares of different kinds. We... read more

We stayed in the hotel near the restaurant and expected it to be mediocre. So, we passed eating there. When we left we were told we missed an excellent restaurant. We rearranged our plans to eat there at our last night in Quebec. We were not disappointed; we were thrilled. the service (also in English) was impeccable. The menu that... More

We sort of stumbled upon this place, after trying to go elsewhere. But, boy, were we glad we did. Entering, we were a little concerned about the vibe -- a bit formal, and very 1990's NYC. We weren't sure it was the right place for our three kids. The waiter also seemed a bit humorless at first, but we were... More

Since this was a special occasion I had ask for a intimate boot which we got without having to mention it again once there. this place is top of the... More

Did not disappoint. We did not try their trademark "tartar" but will next time. The 4 course table d'hote offered many choices. We enjoyed everything but the turkey breast with prosciutto and creamed spinach sauce was amazing. My husband had pickerel which he enjoyed but agreed my turkey won the night. The only disappointment was my cappuccino...too much foam not... More

First off, don't be fooled by the location attached to what looks like a motel in a suburban location. We almost didn't go in based on the unassuming exterior and location. The restaurant is known for their tartare and the tuna tartare did not disappoint. Full of flavour, it was done perfectly and you almost had to ready yourself for... More

I have been at the Galopin at least 3-4 times every year since I came back from Europe in 2008 after a pleasant 4 years of gastronomic trips here and then. I have eaten in Michelin starred restaurant and pretty much all the best tables in Quebec city and Le Galopin has everything, yet reasonably priced menu which changes every... More

I have a love for tartare and enjoyed Le Galopin very much. VERY fresh and well presented. This restaurant also had a very nice wine list with some interesting, diverse and well priced options. I also had the foie gras appetizer with a sherry caramel and pears, and it was very good. When I could not decide on the steak... More
