One of my favourite Quebec restaurants. Always an interesting and different menu. The waiters work really well as a team so nothing is forgotten. They aim to please. I love their scallops. Interesting appetizers. Like one of the other posters said I am surprised this place is not rated higher. Great food with being pretentious. For the quality the price... More

Nice restaurant in the lower part of the old city. Excellent bistro food, Charcuterie platter, Mint & pea soup, Beef tartare and a great seared tuna! A bit noisy at times but still a nice restaurant to enjoy!

Our waiter made this meal extra special. Dan was amazing. He was super personable, entertaining and very knowledgeable on the menu. We tried the trio tartare, rabbit soup, seared foie gras, flank steak, veal trio, tuna, lasagna, duck, oysters, goat cheese app chocolate desert, sugar pie and creme burle. Everything was awesome but the foie gras, rabbit soup and flank... More

I am surprised to see that this restaurant has not been rated higher here. It was rated close to the top in Frommer's 2014 guide to the old city. We went for brunch Dec 27 with 1:30 PM reservations and arrived with only one table available, ours. We could chose from the brunch or the regular menu. My wife had... More

short walk from hotel, tired legs and no real plan led us here!!! An act of kindness from the food gods. We were squeezed in at the bar without reservations last minute, joined by two gentleman of considerable bonhomie whose dinner stretched over a suitably French amount of wine. The food was fabulous, the evening was a delight for atmosphere... More

This is our first night, first visit to Quebec City. We had just arrived and just a short walk around the corner from our hotel, Auberge St Antoine, we thought, why not try this restaurant. The outside was beautiful decorated for Christmas and it was warm and cosy inside with quite a few diners. The waiters were friendly and most... More

Located in the lower part of town (with parking a bit of a challenge), this restaurant was well lite (perhaps a bit too much for dinner) and filled with couples, families and tourists. A wide variety of lovely entrees to chose from like duck, perfectly cooked, pasta's and local specialties. A delightful wine list and warm chatter all around us... More

This place is currently celebrating 20 years in business and no wonder! Classic french bistro menu and excellent service. We enjoyed a few meals here and all were delicious. Seemed to be popular with locals too.

We picked this blindly and we're not disappointed. Brunch was delicious, service was excellent and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I'll look forward to returning.

We had chosen this restaurant on our wanderings the night before. Even with calling for reservations we were not able to get in until after 8:30 in the evening. It was very much worth the wait. The mussel and clam soup was delicious. The bison steak was excellent. It was done to perfection. Beautiful presentation of the food. The dessert... More
