We have been eating at this small place for a few years. Although it is in the tourist area, it is hidden away down a side street away from the chaos. You can relax and enjoy your meal. On this last visit we had ham...More

Located in a small historic street while wandering in the old town we found a little café with no advertising, but a whole lot of people in. We found a pure gem. Nonetheless the price seemed unreal for its price and the price couldn't be...More

We stopped by for a late lunch/early dinner on a super cold day. The place was on a side street without a lot of foot traffic. That was fine with us. Loved the brick walls and the simple decor. We had a delicious veal in...More

Visited Chez Temporel for lunch on a snowy weekday. Very cozy place with a small downstairs eating area and a bit more space upstairs. There were 4 of us, all trying different sandwiches and chili. Fantastic food (save room for the maple pie!). Good service...More

Excellent menu of local food, including a nice selection of local beers. The location within the old city is very convenient, and the atmosphere is pleasant. We enjoyed lunch here and found a nice selection of small dishes.

This is a small Quebec Bistro, which is located right in the centre of the old city on a very quiet street, la Rue Couillard, which seems undisturbed by the bustling Rue St Jean, about 100 meters away. Dishes are simple but very well prepared...More

Chez Temporel is basically a small cafe with food items as well. As such, it's a great spot for a relaxing lunch. The food is basic cafe items like baguettes, croques, soups, salads, nothing fancy, but homemade and delicious. The decor is sort of 1960s...More

We had read the reviews and thought it sounded like a perfect place for a simple dinner after a long day of sightseeing. We had the French Onion soup which was too salty and a croque monsieur which was disappointing. It is a cozy small...More

It is just off Rue Saint-Jean about a 10-15 minute walk at most from the Marriott. It is very close to Portofino Italian Restaurant which is on Saint-Jean...that is where you pick up the street for Chez Temporal. Good... More

I was there in March and don't remember either a gluten free or dairy free menu. They might have had some items of each but it wasn't an advertised part of the menu.
