We enjoyed this restaurant so much. We met the owners, and admired their creativity and upbeat manner. The meals were excellent. Fresh ingredients. I had the best Italian red wine. They closed for vacation the next day and we were fortunate they hadn't closed already. The best meal we had in three weeks of travel. If you eat anywhere in... More

I had not realized that the menu concentrated so heavily on game, which I am not that familiar with, and in particular, a lot of meat and fish tartare. That said, the sweetbread appetizer was the best starter we encountered in our stay in Quebec. The rest of the meal was pleasant. The servers were quite cordial, and gave us... More

This restaurant was absolutely amazing. It is very small and close, and a tad noisy, but appears to be popular with foodie locals. The mushroom creme brûlée was interesting and quite tasty, but the main courses blew it away. The fois gras is super rich and smooth. The duck was some of the best I've ever tasted, also very rich.... More

Great restaurant. We had a selection of appetizers, each delicious. I had the duck breast as my main dish, and it was possibly the best duck that I have ever had.

Excellent food with a varied menu including some exotic dishes and appetizers. Wine list is interesting with wide range of prices. Service is excellent. Atmosphere is great. Location off the beaten path but worth the trip. Large parking right in front of restaurant. Was in Quebec city 2 week-ends in a row and tried it the first one. I liked... More

This hip restaurant is next to a night club outside of the "wall". It is an $8 uber ride from the centre of the city. For three courses and a bottle of wine, we spent $173 prior to tip. The food is unique and delicious - including black pudding, lamb, pasta, and be sure to try the chocolate fondant -... More

Delicious food. We were two couples. We split two appetizers and each ordered an entree. I had the lamb duo which was outstanding. The cheese plate was very good and ample for two people. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food is. I would go back. Wine list was good. Service was excellent.
