We were really looking forward to this iconic restaurant in the oldest building in Quebec City, but were disappointed. Understanding that the building was hundreds of years old, we overlooked the tight quarters, low ceilings and noise, but the place was so hot that it impacted our enjoyment. The waitress was adorable, but the service was slow and several errors... More

Looked like a place where I wanted to dine and the menu was alluring with a lot of exotic choices. I could see the little restaurant with the red roof from the window of my suite at the Le Château Frontenac. The escargots and poutine were absolutely delicious. Odd thing for me to comment on, however the homemade ketchup served... More

We had a great anniversary dinner here. The food was outstanding! We ate early so reservations were not required. The only negative thing was the wine was not good. It was part of the meal but it was very watered down and more of a grape juice. We only found out at the end that they did have a wine... More

Third visit, always for dinner. Typical Quebec cuisine. Reservations required as it is always busy. Go hungry or share a meal! Very large portions and very filling.

We had spent the last 3 days in Quebec City and had decided to have our last night "Big Dinner Out" at Aux Anciens Canadiens ..... we had spent that day exploring the the Montmorency Falls and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. The restaurant offers a daily fixed price menu if your dinner starts prior to 17:45 .... and ours did.... More

We arrived without a reservation at 5pm and we're easily seated. The Trapper's Treat and the Osso Bucco were wonderful as well as the service. I really loved the Maple Syrup pie (but I am a big fan of Maple syrup.)

This would be the spot to visit for a more local style of food. Meat Pies, French Onie Soup, Bean, etc. Everything we had was very good and the service was fun and friendly.

Canadian comfort food at its best in the oldest house in Quebec City. The service was great. One of the best French Onion soups we've ever had. The meat pie was delicious. Great atmosphere.

After a long drive from Ottawa we wanted a quiet, relaxing dinner. We chose this restaurant as it did not appear crowded (although we were early) and the menu posted outside had some interesting selections. We were seated at a window table with a great view of the street. My wife had Beef Wellington and I had roasted chicken. Both... More
