We tried this place after checking Tripadvisor on some recommendations on where to have a good meal in Old Quebec since this was our first time here. We had the steak and fries as recommended and it did not disappoint. The staff were also very attentive and we will definitely come back again.

Very good service and the food was delightful. We had the Tabal Dhot - Entrecote which included the soup, salad, entrecote, coffee, and desert. The sauce was excellent and some of the best fries I've ever had.

The service and the food were terrific! The steak and frites one of the best we've ever had, including in Paris.

We were in Quebec for 24h with friends and felt like eating meat. Asked at our hotel (Acadia) where to go - they recommended L'entrecote Saint-Jean. We all went for the entrecote with fries, but asked for the sauce a part (not sure if we would be on our knees for it). Actually we enjoyed the steak with a little... More

L'entrecote saint jean is a poor imitation of the famous entrecote and sauce first created at the Café de Paris in Geneva in the 1940s. The Saint-Jean served a bland sauce over a poor cut of meat. The proprietor was abrupt and the waiter was intrusive and overly chatty. A mediocre experience at best.

In Quebec City for three days and staying at the Manoir Victoria which is centrally located. Walking through rue Saint Jean we happened to see L'Entrecot Saint Jean and noticed they had duck confit on the menu. After a recent trip to France and tasting this dish, it has become the only way we will eat duck. We tried it... More

It's a wonderful and cozy steak house nestled in the heart of Old Quebec City. Excellent service, really great steak and a reasonable price, especially for the Prix Fix menu. It is always my first stop in QC because I cannot get enough of the classically prepared steak sauce and frites. It never disappoints.

Very good dinner out with the family. Reservation required. The restaurant is always very very busy. Not cheap, but the entrecote is really good. It is the main dish accompanied by its special house-sauce. It's worth to try. My score would have been higher if the menu list had been richer and various. The atmosphere, is cosy, even if very...

I often visit Quebec City but this was my first time in this restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. It is unpretentious and looks like an old-fashioned French bistro from the sixties with nice French and English songs playing in the background. The evening "table d'hôte" was tasty and fairly priced (under $30): carrot soup, bread, salad, steak, thin fries, profiteroles... More

It is a good restaurant choice if you are looking for a beef. It us an US beef style. Food and service are average. Good value for the money.
