My wife and I walked in a light rain from the Hilton. Worth every step. Ciccio is a fine dining experience at an extremely reasonable price - especially in comparison to similar restaurants inside the touristy and pricey Old Quebec. We were greeted warmly and given a very nice table in this rather small restaurant. I'd recommend making a reservation,... More

On a blustery, chilly September evening, we happened upon this small, side street restaurant. Not dressed for the chill nor classy dining, we were welcomed even without a reservation. Speaking little French, we politely received English menus from which to select our dinners. We chose the many course meal and were supremely amazed again and again with a delicious bread... More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Ciccio Cafe last evening. The service was great with several waiters working in perfect, quiet harmony with each other. The food was authentic Italian with simple fresh ingredients and well presented. The atmosphere is a little more cramped and bustling than I would prefer for an evening meal, but don't be... More

We were staying around the corner on the Rue St. Jean and our B&B owner suggested this restaurant on our last night. So glad we went! The restaurant is small and charming. The food is outstanding. The service friendly and efficient. By far the best meal of our whole trip to Canada.

We lucked out on this restaurant finding it while exploring quebec. We are not foodies or fine dining people but the menu sounded good and the prices were reasonable. I got the Table D'Hote that started with a plate of terrine and confits. There were 6 components to this dish, not including the bread and butter that we ate with... More

Everything we ate at this restaurant was fantastic. Escargot, salads, entrees and deserts made us all very happy. It is a small neighborhood restaurant with big elegant dining atmosphere. We were so glad that we found this restaurant via a TripAdvisor search. Totally recommend.

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance as it was close to our hotel, it's about 10mins from the old town but worthy of a visit. By far the best service experienced in Canada so far. We opted for the table d'hote, 4 courses with prices starting from $30 plus taxes. Good house wine is available by the glass, 1/4l,... More

The food here is good and authentic but they truly work extra hard to leave nothing to chance with their service. They have an exceptional wine list as well.

We were two couples on our first trio to Quebec City. We expected to find overpriced and just ok food. Wow, were we surprised. We each ordered a different table d'hote (5 course meal) because the appetizers sounded interesting. Again, wow. We were all blown away. The escargots in Pernod was scrumptious. Salads were delicious. A nice light soup was... More
