Hiding down a side street off la rue St-Louis, within walking distance of the Chateau Frontenac, the Cafe de la Paix is a longstanding favourite among natives and tourists alike. The food is always good. We had a lobster entree / terrine, followed by an...More

I would not recommend this restaurant. The food quality was below average, the service extremely poor and slow and unless you have reservations you will be placed upstairs in unmemorable rooms.

A very nice restaurant with good presentation. Waiter was excellent. Salmon and steak very nice - but soup was just lukewarm and the vegetables were straight out cold. The house wine was good but the price on the menu was different than bill. Menu was...More

We were seated and our order was taken by what I was told later was an owner. He was in an incredible hurry, rushing us at every turn, treating us in a clipped, exasperated way, as if we were the ugly Americans. The food was...More
