We came across this place by chance, it is decorated nicely if a little quirky. We were served by a very nice guy who did his best to please us, although we were a large party. The drinks were very good, but took a long time to arrive, as he seemed to be both the barman and server. The menu... More

We arrived lateish in Quebec and this was recommended by our hotel as being good, nearby and serving until fairly late. Surprisingly it was quite empty (on a Friday night) and we were able to have a table on their small patio. Food was excellent - modern, well-executed, French/Canadian, sophisticated bistro style. Portions were not too big which means you... More

Had a very enjoyable meal on the street side patio, it was a nice change of pace from the tourist traps on the main street near Old Quebec, with meals that are unique with alot more value.

We found this place while wandering in the St.Roch neighbourhood and it was the first place we ate at on our trip. We liked the look of the street 'patio' and we were hungry for lunch so we stopped on. The waiter was super friendly and helpful, and even put up with my bad French! The food was good, generous...

We love the concept behind this restaurant: they're experimental. They take risks; they try new things. Their menu changes. They know their wine. And, they do all this without being stuffy or uppity. However, our food was just okay. The portions were pretty ideally sized--reasonable without being over-the-top. But, to be honest, nothing of what we ordered really wowed us.... More

I was here for a drink and we ended eating some starters for sharing...it was nothing special apart from the plate presentation, which was really nice... I found it expensive for the quality of the dishes...

Stopped in for a light lunch. Their lunch menu is very limited, but we all enjoyed our meals. Two of us had fish and chips (haddock), which they rated 6.5 out of 10. One of us had fish tostada (7.5) and one of us a vegetarian salad with tofu (9). Lovely service. It was quiet there for a late lunch.... More
