Fantastic food at a reasonable price, lovely French atmosphere, staff slightly unimpressed with non-French speakers. We would eat here every day for breakfast.

Had lunch here for the first time. The service was fast and friendly. The loaded poutine was so delicious. It had pulled pork, sausage pieces wrapped in bacon and squeaky cheese curds and a great gravy. The duck burger was flavourful with Brie cheese, pear and caramelized onions. The curry mayo for the fries was a nice touch. Will definitely... More

The old city was busy when we were here - of course, it was August. We had a table within a few minutes and were not rushed at all. The server was extremely helpful, offering up her favorites and suggestions. The poutine and ribs here were definitely the best anywhere and I don't care if you have to stay longer... More

A long wait, mediocre food & then my Amex number was stolen (this was the only place I used it on my trip). Steer clear as this is a poorly run establishment.

Hot coffee, sweet treats and savory onion soup. My mother and I enjoyed a respite in this comfortable restaurant. It has clean restrooms and the service is friendly, if not the most attentive. Overall a nice place to rest after walking through Old Quebec City.

We went here for dinner our first night when we were tired and didn't think we would appreciate a fine restaurant. Surprise, the seafood pot pie we had with a simple salad ranked as the second best meal we enjoyed in Quebec City. The third best meal we had was the breakfast we enjoyed here. The restaurant is at the... More

Get the seafood pot pie, it was fabulous. In fact everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. You can sit outside on a nice day too. Our server was Laurie who was very nice

We stopped for a hot chocolate and tea (they use Davids tea and have a special Laura Secord hot chocolate) along with vanilla creme brulee and chocolate mug cake. The desserts were delicious and a sweet stop in the day.

I loved the location! I loved sitting outside watching the people and things going on. I thought the service was not very good. We had to ask for silverware and then I ended up going inside and getting it myself. I ordered the asian chicken salad and the dressing had no flavor. I told our waiter and he said that... More

I had the seafood pot pie, just the right amount of creaminess, fresh seafood, perfect combination with the pastry. For dessert, the sugar pie is highly recommended. The place is cozy and service was great. Would definitely be back the next time I visit old Quebec, probably also opt to seat outside if it is not too cold, as the... More
