“Never let down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I have eaten here a few times with friends, or just with my Hubby. Each time we are well received, and the food and service is very good. Hint, make a reservation early in the week for a week-end supper, as they fill up quickly. The atmosfhere is fun, The lobster Pot-en-Pot is especially good...chalk full of hunks of seafood, the sauce is rich and creamy. I would highly recommend this plave.

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We arrived at 18:00 with our 10 yr old grand daughter and were seated right away even though we did not have reservation. They asked if we could be done in an hour as they had reservations coming and we were able to do that without being rushed. Excellent food for good value-the children's menu gives milk, appetizer, main course (a good portion) and dessert for $5.95 plus tax! Our meals were good and good value. We will go back. Would recommend a reservation as by the time we left people were lined up to get in.

“A delicious brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Espresso with a ham stuffed crepe smothered in a belnd of local melted cheeses, served with fresh orange juice and enjoyed while watching the world walk by on the streets of Old Quebec.

What more really needs to be said?

Excellent food, terrific service and a location that cannot be beat!

“A very nice breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Everytime we live in Quebec city, we must eat breakfast in Cochon Dingue. We not only love their food, but also the view and the ambiance. Personnaly, I love their smoked salmon eggs, but you have plenty of choice when you go there. Only thing I strongly recommend is to take the bowl of café au lait. It's wonderful.

“Happy with the recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to me by a person who grew up in Quebec City.

We enjoyed the food. I highly recommend the ribs! The prices were reasonable, (main course for $15-28). Menus available in English.

We enjoyed the heated patio and people watching. The service was friendly, attentive and efficient.

It was not spectacular, overall, but it was enjoyable and I would consider going back.
