On our third night in Quebec we finally found a restaurant that exceeded our expectations. We went for the table d'hôtel at The Mistral Gagnant. My husband had the rack of lamb and I had the duck breast. They were both beautifully cooked and deliciously tasty. The starters and soup were generous as was the desert and coffee. It was... More

This restaurant had me on Leg`s Duck. It was cooked to perfection. The family members ordered their own thing and we tasted each of our orders. All tasty! The restaurant is cozy, the server and cashier is friendly. I will come back for the leg`s duck.

My wife and I prefer simpler Provençal cuisine to the often fussy French cuisine available in most restaurants, and Mistral fit the bill. We both had Caesar salads and chicken breast with goat cheese and they were well prepared and served with vegetables and potato. Service was by the owner and was warm and welcoming.

Nicely decorated restaurant that serves Provence-style food. The service was good, attentive, and quite ready to accommodate specific requests. The selection of wines by the glass is very limited, although those proposed were of very good quality. My friend and I ordered cheese to end our meal and, albeit an

Mistral Gagnant has been on our radar screen for quite a while and we are glad we finally made it. Located on a quiet section of Rue St. Paul in Old Quebec, it is walking distance from several downtown boutique hotels, the port, the popular farmer's market, the châteauesque railroad station and bus terminal, and a multitude of antique shops...

It was a drizzly afternoon and we had just visited the fabulous indoor Farmers Market off Quai St. Andre when we came across this small neighborhood eatery on rue St. Paul in a block of industrial-type buildings. No tourists here, just local business people and shop keepers. It was a simple lunch with a fish soup and salad, but very... More

Having studied for a year in the south of France a couple of decades ago, I was delighted to find this restaurant. Our evening there exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere is warm and inviting - perfect for a romantic dinner in a cozy sort of way. We had a lovely table covered in a rich Provenical fabric. Our waiter gave... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at this lovely French restaurant. We ordered the prix fix menu and the food exceeded our expectations. High quality and very flavorful preparations with a nice wine list. In lower town, just down the street from our hotel - Hotel des Coutellier. The menu is very inexpensive and the atmosphere was pleasant - we sat... More
