Really solid venison steak

This place specializes in game, and we had an excellent venison steak. Atmosphere was only OK, its not on the cutest street in the area, but the food was very good. It was a bust night and they moved some tables around to accommodate us. Service was also above average for around here.

We had an excellent dinner at this bistro. We shared the Brie with maple and pecans as an appetizer then my 13 year old son had poutine while my husband and I chose the venison and steak respectively. Dessert was spectacular-the maple pudding is a must!!! We were in Quebec City for 4 days and this was the best meal... More

I was looking for a restaurant with the flavor of Quebec that would work for tweens as well as meet my gastronomic wishes. Service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Try the shrimp and lobster dish with pear puree and red peppercorn sauce if it is available. My kids had an elk burger and a beef burger. The maple... More

This place is in the heart of lower town in Quebec City. Right near the Funicular. I highly recommend checking them out. We went with 6 hungry tired family and all were happy. Nice welcoming staff and fast service. Food was also very good.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner while people watching at this quaint little bistro. The location on a cobblestone street with cafés and cute little shops facilitated the people watching as we sat in the bistro's window. There is a lovely terrace as well, but we chose the indoor seat to take advantage of the air conditioning. Our meals were delicious:... More

Despite it being very busy the staff managed to find us a table for two. I'm glad that they did as the food was truly excellent. I had venison that was cooked to perfection with the most beautiful vegetables. Would definitely recommend.

Had a lovely dinner here our first night in Quebec. Really a great location on a sloping street lined with cafes and shops and you can look up and see the upper city. Highly recommend the salmon. Great wine selections too.

A boutique-type restaurant in the lower part of Old Quebec; very cute and very delicious. It was a little expensive, but it was nice lunch for us. My friends shared the baked brie appetizer and wine, and were very content. The staff was very attentive and helpful.
