The food and service make this place worth it! Visiting from Western Canada I find the prices very reasonable! I had the elk, so good!! I tried the duck and the lamb from my friends at the table. Equally as good! If you are in Quebec city you need to visit Le Hobbit!

We were told about Le Hobbit by a local who raved about the Eggs Benedict. Now I will too. My mate had Eggs Florentine and loved it. My Eggs Benedict was perfection with delicious garnishes. Coffee was excellent and my cup was frequently filled. We will return here again. Service, atmosphere, location, and food were all excellent.

The waitress in a restaurant in Montreal recommended this restaurant in Quebec City. It is a small place but charming and quaint. Service was good and the food was also good. They ha a pre fix menu that was a good value. Liked the restaurant best of all we ate at in Quebec City.

I am a solo traveller and I often find dining alone can be a bit hit or miss. You can often be pushed into a corner and be rushed through your meal. This was NOT the case here. I was seated by the window, had lots of attention and advice from the waiting staff and my meal was certainly not... More

The service was fine. The selections minimal and the food not a value at all! Drinks were very good, but volume was scant and definitely not budget friendly. We were very disappointed and wished we gone elsewhere. Neither of us mind spending the money on a good meal, but we expect a great one for the prices we paid...and that's... More

Visiting le hobbit was a pleasant experience. Nice interior, friendly staff and most important great food. We had the onion soup and a salad as an starter both was good quality and rich in taste. As a main we had ravioli good and braised buffalo on carrot puree topped with champions, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. This dish was one of... More

We're Asian family trying modern French/bistro style food for the first time. Some menu items were unavailable, but the substitution were good too (don't remember exactly what they were, think it was the fish in the special of the day?) All foods looked instagram-able if that interests certain people, but the lighting wasn't so much picture friendly? Portion sizes look... More

Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Great food, good coffee and quick service, it doesn't take more to give me a great start of the day. I had breakfast here several days in a row, why change a winning team?

Felt like a foodie restaurant. I had a "pork flank steak and crustacean oil marinated tiger shrimps, lobster mushroom and nordic shrimp virgin sauce, sweet potatoe and bacon gratin" Sounds foodie doesn't it? We only see flank steak on cooking competitions where they take a cheap cut of meat and have to make something good out of it. The pork... More

We wanted to get away from the more touristy places within the city walls, so ventured up the other end of St Jean street, and came across this place. The TA reviews held it in high esteem, and they served local cuisine, so we figured we'd give it a shot. We were not disappointed! The food was brilliant, and the... More
