Description: L'Aviatic, aujourd'hui bar a vin, offre une rotation mensuelle de 50 vins au verre et a la bouteille pour accompagner un menu aux portions uniques. C'est donc 200 ou 300 differents produits que le sommelier offre annuellement a la clientele. Ils sont selectionnes non seulement pour leur mariage avec les creations du chef, mais aussi pour permettre d'explorer le monde. Un bel equilibre ou tout le monde peut, le temps d'une soiree, s'evader autour du monde. The Aviatic, now a wine bar, brings you a monthly rotation of 50 wines by the glass or bottle, which can be paired with the unique items on the menu. Every year, sommelier Charles L'Ecuyer brings 200-300 wines to customers. They are selected not only to be complementary to the chef's creations, but also because to give patrons a chance to explore the world. It's a perfect balance, allowing you to take a trip around the world in a single evening.

Had a fabulous meal here last night. As this was our first meal in Quebec we had to start with the poutine. Creative take on it and it was excellent. My wife had the octopus which was fabulous. I had the venison (apparently the chef has won awards for it) it was excellent. The bourbon sauce was superb. Great selection... More

I've always liked l'Aviatic Club. The food is always excellent and service is great. The wine selection is surprising and one can discover a few gems. That being said, I still don't get how come the play the same soundtrack since 1981 | Strange, I've seen that place before - Grace Jones

As new visitors to QC Our hotel recommended this restaurant as within easy walking distance. It is in a very gentrified old train station - reminded me of Grand Central. Very tastefully decorated and quiet with unusual liner ceiling fans. The menu was biased toward seafood and two of us had salmon and also the shrimp/mushroom risotto. Delicious. I had... More

Visiting a friend in Quebec City she took me to this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. All around great place, but of course, for me, the food is most important. Yes, the service, atmosphere, and beautifully laid out plates were wonderful (truly wonderful) but the food was INCREDIBLE. We shared 3 or 4 starters and dessert, the wines... More

Moreover, it is quite and one of the few recent bars and restaurancts we have been able to hear each other without straining. Whether it be for a drink something else - this appears to be a... More

We ate there in July and it was one of our best meals ever. It's nice to share plates with friends and taste everything. The flavours are delicate, with a nice Asian touch. Tomato with special bocconcini (very different from the classic plate) is very refreshing in summer. The beef was very tender and the sauce very good. The chef's... More

We went there yesterday, not being able to book a table at the famous Bistro B but following some great review on some local restaurant guide (guideresto.ca). Positive: * great whine menu and the possibility to do a testing of 4 red wines for only 14$ * very interesting menu with definitely a lot of haute cuisine input and some... More

During our stay in Québec, we were really enchanted and even mesmerized by this wonderful establishment. Even though the ambiance is far from being "typical" from North America, this restaurant has a soul ! It is located Inside the train station of Québec City and is very peaceful at night because there is no train traffic at night. Staff is... More

Am staying in Old Quebec City and shuddered at the thought of greasy fries and costly draft beer. My golf partners suggested Aviatic, so I reserved from the course. Good idea. The place was jammed with locals. At the train station - go figure. Fusion cuisine, at 20$ plus per main, $15 per appetizer. My wife took two appetizers, the... More
