Nice restaurant and very popular. Their steak is really spectacular. One bad incident though: my backpack was stolen from there. We were siting at the bar with my bag on the floor next to my chair, and when I was about to leave it was gone. Keep a close eye on your belongings.

I had trepidations about dining here as I am not a big steak fan. The menu appeared quite limited, but upon asking, I learned that they had Salmon. It was delicious!! I had never had sauce on Salmon that tasted so good. The service was extremely good and the staff was very friendly. Much thanks to our waiter Simon for... More

I ate here a year ago and did not like it but decided to give it another try. Nothing has changed ... grainy, tough, and flavourless steak smothered in a sauce. The profiteroles were disappointing; stale pastry and too much chocolate sauce. I guess I just do not get the allure of this place. I will say that the waitstaff... More

The french formula, soup, salad, beef with the secret sauce and profiterol desert makes a perfect combination. Good wines for pairing It totally worth.

If you want a french "biftec" experience, this is a good place. Food and wine are very good, and so is the comfortably quaint environs.

This was a quaint little spot we stopped into for a drink, and stayed for dinner. When we realized the patrons seemed like mostly locals, not tourists, we thought the food must be very good. They did not disappoint! My husband had the steak special, which the place is famous for, and loved it. I had a salad with chicken,... More

I liked the location of this restaurant and the service. The soup was also great, but the main course left me quite disappointed. The entrecote was very stringy and hard to chew. My table companion said it happens in this place from time to time, but I am curious as to why such a respectable establishment cannot find a decent... More

I enjoyed my meal here -- had the menu and the courses were reasonable in scale, size, and quality. This is not prime US corn fed beef, so for those after the steak house experience a la Morton's or similar this is not going to be what you're after. But for French bistro steak meal this works well. Great profiteroles... More

The specialty is steak...they offer alternatives but it is steak which sets this restaurant apart from others. Staff are courteous and assist the atmosphere. A good wine selection is also available. All set within the walled part of Quebec
