Had dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens with French visitors and they loved it. For me, it was like my mother's and grand-mother's cooking bringing back some great memories. The portions are copious and if you want a real treat go for Grandpa's treat. Tourtière, paté à la viande, fèves au lard et patte de cochon... delicious heat-warming food.

A very good value for lunch -- special includes a drink (wine or beer), soup, entree & dessert for under $20. Service was good, and food was above average. Note that portion sizes are modest, but sufficient.

My wife and I ate lunch at this restaurant on a recent trip to Quebec. It was advertised as a "hearty meal" location with a lot of local favorite foods. We enjoyed the lunch. It was a set price of $19.95 for 3 courses. I am unsure about dinner, but we enjoyed the lunch.

I was recently in the QC because it's one of my favorite places ever and to do a little Christmas shopping. I decided to dine in one of the oldest places in North America. The food was good, the service fine and I'd recommend this place anytime!

Like many others we had heard many good things about Aux Anciens Canadiens. The restaurant is charming and the food is excellent. We went once and thought the food could not get any better but it did. Do not skip the desserts. I also must say the Customer Service was above and beyond-that is another reason why we returned a...

We ended our recent trip to Quebec City with dinner at Aux Anciens Canadiens just as we had 20 years ago. The restaurant is charming and we were seated by the fire on a cold and misty night. The 2 servers who were taking care of all the tables were unfailingly polite, professional and pleasant. We ordered the prix fixe... More

Traditional Quebecois cuisine in what is billed as the oldest building in Quebec. Lots of menu choices. Meals are prix fixe with an upcharge for some dishes. 3 course lunch with wine was $19.95 Canadian. Tried poutine for the first time here. It was better than I expected. Quite hearty. Probably a good dish on a cold night. Not sure... More

We stopped here for an early dinner at the recommendation of our hotel owner. For one price, you can order a beer or wine, soup, entree, and dessert. Everything we ordered tasted homemade--no frozen and microwaved food here! The atmosphere reminded me of visiting in a grandparents home--nothing fancy, but cozy and welcoming. I had vegetable soup, a pork dish,... More

Looks like I wrote everything in the title already! The caribou and bison rillettes are good but there can't be much caribou in them. The tourtière du lac Saint-Jean is disappointing, and I'm not sure why it has to come with a bison stew on the side. The maple syrup pie is pretty good.

My wife and I came to check out some local cuisine. The service was excellent - the wait staff were attentive and very knowledgable. I had the Bison Bourguignon which was good - it was tender and the sauce rich and flavorful. My wife had the 'RÉGAL DE GRAND-PÈRE' which is huge so don't order this unless you are really... More
