We stopped here for lunch during our long weekend in Quebec City. The location is fantastic, and the service was excellent. My husband tried the elk burger on a recommendation from someone at the next table, and while he enjoyed it, it was nothing special. I had a tasty bowl of French onion soup. We really enjoyed sitting on the... More

This place is amazing. Duck confit was just perfect. The best one I have ever eaten. Staff is very professional and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

We ended up here the first time, as we heard a merchant say that they had the best French Onion soup ("look for the blue awning"). It was a bit of a chilly day, so we went for a late lunch. It was awesome, and the service was great. For our 25th Anniversary dinner, we came back after a terrible... More

The first thing noticed was the lively and friendly staff. The service was excellent. The food was moderately priced, good selection, and well-prepared. The atmosphere was cozy inside but there was also outside dining. This was one of the two favorite eating places we experienced in the city.

We sat on the porch with a beatiful view down the pedestrian street to the water. We relaxed with a cold beer. We had their delicious venison with rice and mixed vegetables. Our son loved their mushroom ravioli with a green salad. Our servers were friendly and attentive.

This restaurant was very good, but not outstanding. The atmosphere was wonderful, the service was fantastic - very friendly and personable staff. They just need to work on the fine details to make this place outstanding - for example, the salmon entree was very good but it was paired with overdone veggies and boring plain white rice (think Minute Rice)....

Excellent resturant, a must when visiting Quebec. Tasty food and good wine. The set menu was great value for money. If we were in Quebec longer, we would return.

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel. The food was tasty. My only suggestion would be to add a little more value to the appetizer salad. It seemed small for the price. Our server was very helpful and gave us great suggestions of things to do while we were visiting the city. Would eat here again.

Came here by chance and had a great time. Totally French cuisine: confit de canard and venison steak. Both excellent. House pinot noir and merlot by the glass were fine if a bit pricey at CAD 15 each. Total bill was CAD 104 to which we added a tip to the friendly waitress. Highly recommended while strolling through Quebec city.... More
