“A true taste of the old world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

People on a tour told us about this little "gem". They had a early dinner sitting that includes a glass of wine, salad, dinner choice and dessert. It was outstanding. We loved the charm of the place, but the servers were most attentive. So glad we took the advice of fellow traverls.

“Traditional "home cooking" - Canadian Style.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Had our first lunch in Quebec City here - following a 3 hour Quebec City Coach Tour - without a coffee stop! (Tripadvisor recommendations led us here).
Our waiter was most efficient and spoke excellent English; he was attentive but discrete.
Lunch was attractively served and more than met our expectations.
The restaurant was tastefully decorated in keeping with the building's history (the oldest in Quebec - 1675).
Very busy while we were there - which was a good sign (popular).

Prices fairly high for lunch (one course/two people) $74.45 inc. taxes, but before gratuity). However, the quality justified the cost.


Have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to travellers.

“Too expensive for what it is!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We have been to Aux Anciens Canadiens about once a year since 2000... The food was nice... Not extravagant but kind of old fashion family food. It has always been a tourist place but it was nice to go there. They change their pricing last year or the year before. Now it is very expensive! We just took the average table d'hote and it cost us 500$ for 4 people. They use to have decent pricing for lunch but they don't anymore. Now, it is really a tourist trap!!!

“Interesting food in a lovely building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The building is lovely and historical. The staff are helpful and attentive. The food is very nice and it comes at a good pace as well. The traditional meat pie is full of flavour and texture. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
