This small restaurant is located at the foot of the funicular. It has a small outdoor patio area. We stopped there for lunch. The service was good even though the place was crowded with fairly large parties of families. Top dish was the elk burger.

Service was very good (not great), and food was fine. Restaurant is very very small, with outdoor seating. Husband had the duck leg and said it was incredible - flavorful and tender. Restaurant is always busy. I'd go back; definitely order the duck. Expensive.

This was our last dinner in Quebec. It's a sweet little bistro on a very busy street. We were able to sit outside, which we love. We started with the warm Brie with pears and baguette. I'd say that this was the highlight of the meal. Our dinners were simple but fine. Mine was the salmon in the citrus sauce... More

We stumbled onto this cute little cafe at the foot of the Funicular in old Petite Champlain. The food was great, decent-sized portions and reasonably priced. We sampled a number of highly rated restaurants, but this is the only one we went back to a second time.

The location is fantastic and the staff is very friendly and efficient. Two out of 3 meals were great. The chicken was overwhelmed by the ham stuffing. We would go again. You should get a reservation and sit outside.

Excellent food and attentive service translated to a very enjoyable dining experience. The fried calamari with Cajun sauce made for a great appetizer and the chicken stuffed with ham and cheese made for a great entree. Wonderful Apple dessert topped off the evening.

We had four nights in Quebec, and enjoyed a meal here on the last two evenings. Situated in the Old Town area, just about at the foot of the funicular. Don't let the busy touristy street put you off visiting. A small outside terrace was full on our first visit, but we obtained a seat inside by the large open... More

I've had two meals here and thoroughly enjoyed both. Extremely courteous and diligent wait staff. Small terrace off of a small pedestrian cobblestone roadway. Highly recommended.

Good service. Good food. Great atmosphere. Great area. It is a nice little bistro with a heated patio. This was the fancy dinner on our road trip. Of course, this area in the old town Quebec is wonderful.
