I spotted this place as I was walking trough the neighbourhood. It was one of the best brunches I've ever tried. I had a steak and eggs breakfast and must say I rarely tasted such tasty meat. The marinade was on point a perfect balance of sweat and salty. Our waitress was nice and very helpful. I would recommend this... More

I had dinner here alone so I only tasted 2 items, but they were both original and delicious. The special pea soup was not puréed, but was loaded with diferent varieties of legumes in a rich but not overwhelming stock. The essence of each ingredient (including ham) stood out yet fit together as a whole. Same with the chicken dish--a... More

We enjoyed Sunday brunch here based on the recommendation of the staff at the hotel where we were staying. The french toast was delicious as was the verrine that serves as a first course. The service was prompt and attentive. The neighborhood is being revitalized so it was nice to wander around and do some window shopping after breakfast. Because... More

We went for lunch on the second last day of our visit to QC. It was so good, we went back to our hotel and asked them to make reservations for brunch on our last day. Try the salmon gravlax...fantastic. But you can't go wrong with the gazpacho, fish of the day or beef tartare. Literally, everything we ate here... More

My wife and I had lunch at Le Clocher Penche this past week. The food is French bistro at it's best. Everything was fresh and lovingly treated. We had local salmon and local grass fed beef. Both were lightly handled and perfectly expressed their true nature. The bar is nice and makes a fine drink. The place is a little... More

Modern bistro serving French food. The best ingredients and the results were delicious. Service was slow the night we went, but it was worth it. This is not an air conditioned restaurant and it was quite warm when we went. Ask to sit near a window. Reserve in advance.

The atmosphere, the service, and the food were all lovely here. An unexpected dessert-appetizer was supplied while we waited for our meal. Medium portion size. Great flavour. Would go again!

The food was very good and the menu selection was interesting. The side of vegetables was original and included less used veggies like fiddleheads. Everything was perfectly cooked and well presented. But the meal was not memorable. We found everything good but nothing fantastic or exciting. This is a good restaurant, but it just didn't stand up to other restaurants... More
