Very good food

Good French cuisine with a modern twist. The fish were well cooked (not too much!) and the duck cannellonis were succulent.

We went to Cafe Le Hobbit for brunch on a Saturday morning. It was a very busy place, and we waited about 25 minutes to be seated, but it was absolutely worth the wait. We had been dressed in warm winter clothing, including ski pants, as we were there to see the Quebec Winter Carnival. I thought they might put... More

A great find. Excellent food and service. The adults and kids (ranging in age from 12 to 89) enjoyed lunch so much we returned for brunch the next day.

We arrived after a LONG drive and enjoyed our dinner. The only oddity was when we wanted to pay cash but hadn't yet converted US cash to Canadian, the restaurant wanted to do a $1 per $1 exchange which would have been far more expensive in US $. Lesson: pay credit card or have your hotel exchange money! Service great-... More

We were staying at the Marriott and asked for a nice upscale restaurant with local food and French cuisine. The Hobbit was recommended and we went to dinner at 8 PM. It was a last minute decision and when we arrived our table was not ready. The place was packed and Katherine , the hostess and bartender, offered us some... More

We had a great meal with wonderful cocktails. While our server was conversational and pleasant she was not knowledgeable about their wine list when I asked for a pairing for my lamb shank. The lamb was cooked to perfection! I wold suggest this cozy place to anyone traveling to Q city that wants a good meal but not looking to... More

Was told it was a couple of minutes of wait for a family of four. An hour has passed and we haven't been seated. (They seated groups of 5 and 10 before us and all had no reservations and arrived later) Had the food been superb it would have been worth it. The Benedict hollandaise is great but not worth...

After a walk in the cold winter through Quebec City, I found 'Le Hobbit' and was surprised to see the excellent menu. The restaurant was full, the waitresses pretty busy but the introduction was very nice and comforting. A chilled atmosphere combined with great food. The food order was accompanied by a good wine recommendation. Waiting times were appropriate for... More

We had dinner here last night. We walked in without a reservation and were lucky to get seats at the bar. Three of us had a grilled vegetable dish that was one of the best vegetarian meals we have had in years! It was a delicious combination of flavors. My son had the elk which was also excellent. Nice selection... More
