This restaurant is located in an old building that we love to visit. The cuisine is authentic, and there are a number of entrees here that most other places don't offer. The portions were more than adequate, but make sure you save room for some of the maple desserts! Our waitress was excellent and explained some of the differences in... More

This facility has been here since 1677 and is reflected in the interior.The food is typical of the area and known for certain dishes. There are special pricing options each day but we ordered al la carte, getting exactly what we wanted. The meat pie of game was wonderful as was the duck breast in maple syrup reduction. Service was... More

This is a must for us when we come to Quebec. We love the food. It is traditional Quebec food and not trendy. The service was excellent. Previously we had come in the winter and spring. Some of the other guests were a bit loud and obnoxious which was a shame.

We got the $20 special without upgrades. The food was simple and tasty. I had read the negative reviews and they were pretty accurate. Don't expect swanky dining. The restaurant serves 2 or 3 simple entrees for $20. Anything extra costs. The food was good enough for the price, just don't expect fine dining.

Had lunch with the family here. There was a short wait for lunch, with some tables reserved. I expect means you should plan on reservations for dinner. Solid menu of traditional Quebecois dishes. There is a 3 course lunch menu, which is a great deal, and includes a drink.

My wife and I looked for a romantic spot for our first evening in Quebec. This place far exceeded our expectations both for food and ambiance.

Come to this historical establishment, located at the Haute Ville section of Québec City, before 5:45pm and sample a three-course dinner of old fashioned Québec cuisine (=cuisine du terroir) with beer, for CAD 19.95 per person. On a recent Friday night visit we sampled: homemade warm bread and butter; a glass of cold tap beer; hot vegetable soup; Coulibiac style... More

I had been pre-warned by a quality tour guide book to expect indifferent service. Our walking tour guide (Michel) recommended we go, but do lunch and not dinner. Lunch is same menu but half the price. Restaurant was half full as I went in, and I could see that some wait staff were bored. But realizing that foreign visitors should... More
