The service was lovely and the food was amazing. It was nice-- a little on the formal side, but the staff was incredibly warm and friendly. Definitely would consider this restaurant for a fine dining, special treat in Quebec City. The service may be considered slow by American standards, but I appreciated that we weren't rushed out the door or... More

Food was average and the fries were soggy. The range on the menu was limited, prices are reasonable but the servings are small, so not value for money. There were a large number of staff members who walked around a lot and it was a bit annoying and noisy. We finished our meal quickly and left immediately.

Fantastic lunch. We walked by yesterday in the morning, and I knew it would be a place to dine. I throughly enjoyed my trio of tartars.

We were looking for someplace to have a special dinner for our last night in town. This restaurant was suggested. It was very nice and the staff were friendly. Service was slow but it was rather busy. The waiter was kind enough to answer questions about the menu. The salmon tartar was good as was the soup of the day... More

We enjoyed an evening of exquisite tastes and flavored. All of our dishes were beautifully prepared and presented. The amount of food was adequate too we left feeling satisfied and having had a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and professional. If in Quebec City and you want to experience French cuisine I highly recommend L'Echaude.

We had delicious halibut, which was the fish of the day. My husband had oysters which he enjoyed and after seeing the table next to us get a sampler plate dessert we had to order dessert. We clearly chose poorly, ordering the sugar pie, it really seemed to be an accurate name but everything else was outstanding. We will be... More

We had a very enjoyable lunch at the Echaudé. The butternut squash soup was delicious. We both chose duck for our main, and it was cooked beautifully. It was served with a variety of vegetables, just a little of each, so the meal was nicely balanced and not too filling. The desserts were tasty - the portions were small, but... More

My husband and I ate here 13 years ago on our first visit to Quebec, and decided to try it again to see how it had fared. My expectations were far exceeded. L'Echaude does everything right! Food, ambience, and service are all stellar. The menu offers a true choice for everyone and you won't be disappointed by anything. The food... More
