We found the restaurant service to be excellent. The meal was beautifully cooked and the wait service timely. The bartender made a delicious grand mariner/tia maria coffee with cream and sugar crusted glass - a beautiful way to finish off the evening. Highly recommended.

The food was good but I was disappointed with the overall ambiance of the restaurant. I felt that this restaurant was a tourist 'rip off '. The menu and prices were displayed outside the restaurant but when the menus was presented at the table there were no prices! Consequently the cost of the meal turned out to be very expensive...

During high season this restaurant serves at 2 times each evening. Therefore the restaurant gets busy quickly. We were seated, drink orders were taken. Our entree orders were taken by another waitress. The place filled up and that was last we saw of our waitress. The drinks and food was delivered to our table, but no one checked on our... More

The food was very good and the service exceptional. This place is located in a fantastic area of the old port part with indoor and outdoor seating. The menu has a nice selection including beers. Excellent dessert as well.

a lovely setting in old town, a very easy walk from cruise ship docks. We were seated and served shortly after arriving. Food was excellent. Spouse had flank steak with pomme frites, among best he's ever had. My ravioli with mushrooms was as well. We sat outside and it felt like we were in Paris.

This lovely, quaint street side restaurant serves heavenly food and the wait staff was just terrific. I had a beautiful piece of fresh halibut cooked to perfection and served over a bed of spinach risotto with a heavenly sauce. The location in old town is mindful of what you might find in Paris. We can't wait to go back.

Flavorful; lighter fare than most; interesting preparations. Loved the staff / they are attentive and fun. Wonderful pasta with citrus dessert - left without heavy evening meal feeling. Great for sharing. Totally loved this restaurant with etched glasses. Ate here twice in a week they were so great.

Somehow my husband and I had never dined here during any of our many previous visits to Quebec City. We are very glad that we rectified that situation. We found the service, food and atmosphere to be a perfect combination for a pleasant and delicious evening. From the Asian-flavored salmon tartare to the house-made boudin noir (put over the top...
