I was recommended to this restaurant by my hotel. I had a salad and my son had steak frites. Both where excellent and the service was very good. The menu is very simple with about 7 items. The staff do speak English if your French is so so like mine.

The food was delish, and the waiter that served us the first night we were there was this young guy with blond hair. He was excellent and easy on the eyes! We were three and we choose different items to share. The cheese plate was amazing as was their veggie type tower plate. The beer, forget the name had a... More

We have been twice, once for lunch and once for drinks. We like the food, atmosphere and the friendly servers. We plan on trying dinner before we leave QC.

First of all it smells bad, food is even worse. A word to describe the staff? rude! Quebec is an awesome city so if you want to have a nice dinner stay away from here!
