My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at this lovely bistro. We were greeted warmly by the chef's wife and given one of the 8 tables in the room. The food was expertly prepared and very satisfying. I happened to have this restaurant on my list from reading all of the travel books on the area and as chance... More

After reading the reviews, I was excited about trying this bistro. Four of us went for dinner, and we all enjoyed our food, but felt servings were small and it was overpriced. Enjoyed the atmosphere--very small and cozy.

Found this bistro near our hotel on the last day of our week in Quebec City. Wish we'd noticed it sooner. We were seated and served with great care and enthusiasm by one of the owners, enjoyed an amazing meal, and were captivated the unassuming charm of this delightful little back alley find.

We love this little restaurant. We did not make a reservation and the owner was able to accommodate us after a few minutes of wait. The menu is not extensive, but quite adequate. We had the escargot, bouillabaisse, and crispy pork. Amazing food and service was excellent.

This is a small restaurant with very friendly staff of 2 highly efficient waitresses! It appears to be a family operation. Limited menu of perhaps 8 entrees but we both found 2 or 3 that appealed and our choices were excellent. It's not cheap. 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 deserts, 2 coffees for $150. Still highly recommend it.

This place is tiny but great quality French cuisine. The cream of spinach soup was so good. I am gluten free and wanted the cod but it was being served over orzo but the waitress substituted mashed potatoes and it was delicious. The cosmopolitan cocktail was very good it's just a little on the small side. Overall a good experience.

We were passing by in the afternoon before opening time and the owner was friendly and helpful. With so many choices in this area, it was this that led us to return for dinner. A good choice!

lovely little bistro with outside tables in lower town a little bit away from the hubbub of the town center. Excellent crepes!
