Small and Cozy

Because we visited the restaurant on a cold, snowy night, we were very glad of the small and cozy nature of the restaurant. Our server was extremely personable and the food was delicious. What more could you ask for?!

We love this place. Small and intimate with great traditional food including the Poutine and Maple pudding which is actually more like cake carmelized with maple syrup.

Lovely, unique, cozy bistro in the lower city where the ambiance is equal to the delicious meals. The service was outstanding and the feeling is that you are being entertained in your wait staff's home than feeling as though you are in a restaurant. No rush, no urgency and wonderful surprises on the menu.

This is a delightful small restaurant in the lower city of Québéc. While small the warmth of the welcome, the atmosphere and the food made for a very enjoyable dinner. The restaurant is obviously popular with both locals and tourists as reservations are essential.

If I were able to give seven circles to rate this restaurant, I would. It was simply one of the greatest dining experience ever. Sandy is such a great host. We were treated as part of family members and well taken care of. Steak Frites is outstanding. My friend also loved her fish and chips and mentioned how fresh the... More

Failed to make advance reservations elsewhere on this night so ended up in here for dinner as part of a 5-day stay in Quebec City. Nothing to say but tourist trap with Applebee's quality menu and food, obsequious waitstaff catering to culinarily-ignorant Americans and really poor wine list that can't even take the edge off the disappointment.

The service and food were wonderful. You can have some tiypical wild game served Canadian style. We had the venison and it was wonderful. Desert was also very good.

It was a cold winter's Saturday afternoon, my partner and I had been walking around the old town when the snow started to fall, we came across this little stone pub, with the most gorgeous atmosphere. We were warmly welcomed by very friendly staff, we ordered a glass of wine and the most delicious Clam Chowder, what a beautiful way... More
