Best meal we have had during our week in Quebec. Each had a "catch of the day". And both were great. Staff were also great. And the view of the River made it all even better. A must stop on our next visit here.

Ate here before the free circus show! Felt very rushed. I ordered roast chicken which was delicious, my husband ordered a pesto pasta that was ok. We had our youn daughter with us who ordered pasta with a plain tomato sauce, they brought the wrong dish twice and never did get it right. She was frustrated. The waiter was rushing... More

I have always liked Cafe du Monde and have visited several times over the years, bringing others with me. The setting is spectacular and the food generally good. It is for that reason that I booked a table, waterside preference noted, for lunch today. We were given a beautiful table on the covered terrace overlooking the water. Lunch was very... More

We had dinner at Le Cafe du Monde on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. It was our first night in Quebec and as we started out I do not think any of us realized that the location was down, down, down through the old city right to the river's edge. Then when you arrive it is back up a... More

I don't know why the trip adviser gives this place as one of the best places for lobster. False. They don't have them. Please correct. The food is good, if not exceptional.

We booked online and asked for a view. It worked out beautifully, and we even saw a full moon coming up across the st. Lawrence River. Lovely ambience this restaurant and the staff were very helpful and friendly and fun. Only complaint would be that the flank steak was difficult and chewy. And another thing we noticed that the couple... More

Cafe du Monde is built on the water and is part of the Quebec Cruise Terminal. It's upstairs from street level, so has great views. Offered either a half hour wait or seats at the bar, we ate at the bar, and it was a good decision. We got outstanding attention and service from the bar staff - who also... More

Nice view and modern feel. Nice and bright in the main dining area upstairs. The folks in my party got different meals and had varying opinions. Someone ordered unsweetened ice tea and they brought sweetened and then said they did not offer unsweetened. Two people said their burgers tasted different and not good. My teens ordered lamb which it was... More

Friendly servers attended to our every need, food orders were taken and served with very little wait time. Food choices were many, our family of five guests all were very pleased with choices. We even got to try "Poutine" for the first time, and it was delicious! Setting was lovely, great view of the waterfront and very walkable from our... More
