We enjoyed the get-together with old friends here.

We were pleasantly surprised at this meal we had on a Saturday evening here on Quebec City's Grande Allee. We wouldn't have chosen this restaurant, but it was the site for a reunion with old friends. The meal-sized salads and pasta entrees came in huge bowls. Nice staff. A little pricey, but it's a... read more

I was traveling with nearly 20 college students for the Snowshoe World Championships in January, and we ate at Cosmos for breakfast two days in a row leading up to the event. The service was outstanding from the time of arrival to our departure and the breakfast selections were great. Our students eat the broad spectrum from person to person,... More

With my kids trying to have a different breakfast than the hotel one. We ordered crêpes. Nothing special. No negatives or positives apart from the price which is exagerated. Going to Cora would have been better. We travel a lot and we know expensive when we see it.

Superbe dejeuner dans un atmosphere bien le fun. Situé a proximité de grands hôtels, c'est un must a chaque fois. Anytime we go to Québec we need to stop and this week end we tried breakfast and they were delicious.

We went there for a Sunday brunch. I ordered crêpes with this amazingly delicious dark 70% chocolate melted on top. The chocolate had this heavenly taste. My husband tried the croissant with ham, that was pretty tasteful too. It had a pleasent buttery taste. We had a great overall experience there especially food-wise. Don't get me wrong the service was... More

So great, we ate there three times...two breakfasts and one dinner. The restaurant decor is eclectic with a great glass wall with shifting colors behind a picture of birch trees as well as other great textures/art. We were there during Winter Carnival and it was crowded, but the breakfasts were great. Large helpings and fresh fruit, great crepes! Dinner (pasta)... More

Really awesome environment! Great light effects, stone and wood work, and aquariums! We ate breakfast, dinner, and later drinks and desserts there. The breakfast was a huge platter filled with fruit and generous serving of eggs. The dinner was great as was the service. The bar was nice with great mojitos and delicious cream brûlée!

Bottom line, I shouldn't have broke my rule. Service was slow, food was over cooked. My Cesar Salad was sloppy and tasted like it was made and dressed that morning. Their ribs were smothered with what tasted like bottled sauce, I could go on but why bother. Probably a great place for late night drinks with your friends, but dinner... More

This place is amazing. It is a little pricey but the food is amazing. Sat at the bar and the bartender was wonderful. Recommend one of the best wines I have ever had.
