Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. This restaurant came highly recommended by one of the bartenders at a pub we visited on several occasions. We had an amazing meal, the service was friendly. There is an open patio area were we dined. It was a humid evening so this area was hot but that did not deter our good time. We enjoyed out... More

I tried this restaurant for the first time a couple weeks ago. It is well located in the Basse-Ville in the thriving scene of the Nouvo Saint-Roch area. The place has its own special atmosphere since it is a restaurant that sometimes turns into a late-night club or hosts music gigs on certain evenings. There are also two adjacent performance...

I enjoyed my dinner so much I wanted to return the next night. I had some of the best gazpacho ever—the broth was thickened more than normal, and was seasoned beautifully. And in the middle of the bowl was a ball of fried ice cream. When mixed with gazpacho, it was perfect. Who knew? Clever chef, great meal. We had... More

It was my first night in Quebec, and le circle was very close to the hotel I was staying, Pur hotel. I tried the vegetarian platter, and it was amazing, very fresh, and full of flavor. I stayed 3 days in this city, and the food in this restaurant topped all the restaurants that I went.

Great brunch - Quaint service and delicious coffee. I had the Tartine and my better half had the Benedict eggs - very fresh and local produce and nice proteins

The chef does a terrific job of creating innovative dishes. Don't be afraid to try something new here. The flavor combinations surprised me. The atmosphere is urban and contemporary.

We had a very nice meal here. My husband had roast boar and I had seafood chowder and both were delicious. The service was excellent.

We enjoyed a nice relaxed meal of very good food and wine. At the end of our meal the table next to us was served their suckling pig. As a vegetarian of 27 years I was pretty horrified at the sight. Someone (I think the busboy) noticed this. Next thing I knew our waitress told me to go to the... More

please...please, don't take the "smoked meat". A very little piece of meat (half fat), with two small crackers, and if you add some french fries, you need to pay extra cash for a little portion. Very disapointing place and no parking around the place (20 min to find one)
