This restaurant is small! We literally had a table in the window. The doors are open a lot as it's hot in there and the cooking ventilation is not great (you will leave smelling like a kitchen). There were many flies because of the open doors. Now, the good part...the food is great. The waiter will walk you through every... More

Let me tell you about this little place that was a recommendation from another restaurant a while back and this is my second visit while working in Quebec City. It's a mighty fine example of a 'hole in the wall' with people that just clearly show that they love what they do, cook and make sure you have had a... More

This restaurant was written about in either an old LA Times or Wall Street Journal article I saved, sorry, I can remember which. It seemed like the chef was trying too hard to be unique, and just didn't really get there on taste. I could imagine that on another night the chef might have had more luck with his/her creations,...

Farm to table fresh food that was delicious! The staff was friendly and translated the menu in full for us non-french speakers. The duck and the Icelandic cod did not disappoint!

We had the pleasure of dining here on our visit to Quebec City. Reservations are a must. We loved every bite of our dinner. We had the mushrooms, sweetbreads, flank steak and goat. For dessert, goat cheese cheesecake with caramel sauce. OMG - all mouthwatering. We especially loved the causal and friendly environment. It's mind boggling to think all the... More

Well first off, it is not at all hard to find a great restaurant in Quebec City. It is however wonderful to find a gem like this one. We were fortunately enough to find room at the bar and the service was beautiful, the wine marvellous and the food magical. How two chefs can put this together on two electric... More

This is fine dining in a very casual setting. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. The service was very good.

Love what these guys can cook in a small place on two old stovetops. Food was all great with some nice wine finds. Only thing I would recommend is they get another person to help with service. With only two nightly seatings, it is difficult for one person to take care of everyone's orders at the same time.

A small restaurant doing a fantastic menu that changes each night. Our waiter recommended the goat flank and it was done to perfection and was served with the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. My husband turned his nose up at the goat, but when he tasted mine he wished he had ordered it as well. Not that he didn't... More

Everything was fantastic. Those two guys are awesome! We had the beef tartar, marinated mushrooms, and the fiddleheads for starters. The beef was extraordinary. Pork knuckle and kid goat shank were both great choices! Ended with the cheese tray and panna cotta were the perfect ending. Oh and trust the wine advise given. Not a bad glass to the entire...
