don't go there for the food. My wife ordered the bar pie. Not only was it frozen it was tastless. I ordered the smoked meat sandwich, the meat looks like it was pre=packaged deli slices. . I could go on but why bother. In a city with spectacular food this is not a place to go.

I had the table d'hote menu - a good three course meal with coffee that was reasonably priced. My main of salmon salad was very good and a generous serving. Good for a nice lunch.

We ate at this restaurant at the suggestion of a local recommendation but were very disappointed. The quiche had so many ingredients it did not taste like there was any egg at all. The fries were soggy. The salad was very basic. The fish and chips was mediocre, and that was their "best" dish. The kitchen is not visible from... More

Food is good; simple classic french dishes, limited garnishes but well delivered. Entree (starter) was delicious. My only compliant is the duck leg, which was cooked perfectly but there was no sauce, so overall I found the dish to be a bit dry, but that's my personal taste. Staff are friendly and professional, even though the evening was very busy.... More

I have had duck dish many times before. I have to say, this duck leg was made perfectly. Duck meat could be easily pulled from the bone. Duck skin was cooked to very juicy and soft. It just melted in the mouth with well balanced taste. Super good! Will be back there again.

The food was delicious-I had the mushroom ravioli and my spouse had the salmon. Mine was part of the Table d'Hotel, and came with a salad. The waitress substituted veggies with dinner since I wanted the appetizer salad. She also substituted the maple cake for the normal dessert, a fine option and another nice effort on the part of the... More

This restaurant is very cozy and is in a historical building. We had the Baked Brie with Rum flavored Maple Syrup and Pecans... delicious! It was dessert before the main course. The Vegetarian Quiche was very rich and very tasty, it was also a large serving. The service was efficient and very friendly. Don't know the name of our server,... More

I went to this place on a day trip to Quebec City with a friend. I had my steak well-done as always (but not all the time). It came with green salad and fries. What I ordered was not something other non-French restaurants don't have. That said I've had steaks from different places and theirs was good but I am... More

We stopped here for lunch and the wait was minimal. The service and food were fantastic. They provide heat lamps on the patio for comfortable fall dining outside, but it can be a small space if the restaurant is packed.

Bistro Sous le Fort used to be our favorite restaurant in Old Quebec. Sadly, our last experience wasn't that great. My husband always orders the steak and it was not as good as usually. I had trouble finding something to order since I have food intolerance. Usually, they were able to make little changes (different sauce or salad dressing) so... More
