Delicious Provençal meal in a quaint setting

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... read more

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

We had several items that we agreed were the best we ever had. Tender escargot with a light cream sauce and salmon tartare that exploded with flavors. My spouse and true foodie had sweetbreads so tender he could cut with a fork paired with scalloped potatoes julienne carrots and steamed cauliflower. I had the bouillabaisse which was in a fish...

We came here very tired after walking around Quebec and they were so welcoming and friendly. The menu was perfect--I can recommend the escargot and lamb in particular, but my family were also very happy. The wine (not terribly expensive) that we had chosen was not available, but the proprietor steered us to another in the same range that was... More
