I've already gone to the same resto at Ste-Foy which I liked very much, although this succursal really deceived. The fork and knife were dirty and the lunch-menu was really dissapointing, I asked for a salad that was really small and it came with some sandwich on top, really something.

Great place . We were there for breakfast or rather branch, and chose it again for dinner. Food tastes great, waiters are very polite. Pleasant atmosphere inside and out. Look no more if you are with the family.

Nice place for breakfast/brunch while staying in Quebec City. This place is right around the corner from our hotel so I figured we'd give it a go. They have outside dining which is really nice weather permitting. The place has really nice decor and it is exceptionally clean. Did not use the restrooms during our visit, so I can not... More

We came. We ate. We left. We were happy. We also visited the toilets. We raved about them. We enjoyed the fishtank. We loved the flambeed oatmeal. We may very well return again tomorrow!

I came here for breakfast with my husband. The value that you get for your money is great. We both got large amounts of food with tons of fresh cut fruit that was delicious. Atmosphere was nice inside and the service was friendly. I am so happy we tried this restaurant!

The Cosmos is a restaurant that we normally visit as we leave the city. It's almost traditional. It never fails to put a shining star on a gastronomical journey. The atmosphere, the food and the wait staff are all a delight. Like Cora's the addition of fresh fruit to our breakfast plate is a nice touch.

We were recommended to this place for breakfast by a family member and I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. My husband, son and I all enjoyed our meals. The menu indicated my French toast meal would come with a heaping of fresh fruit. The fruit was very good and plentiful. I was impressed ! We sat on the large... More

Arriving late for the QC music fest, this is a chain resto with a branch at grande allee. The beef tartare was excellent, but apparently all the restos on the grande allee specialize in beef tartare, hopefully it was not salmon, but i don't have a fish allergy, so … The poutine was awful, cold fries with cold cheese and...

We went for 3 nights in Quebec City for the Festival d'Été. We had breakfast the first morning at Cosmos and loved it to the point we went back the 2 other mornings. Service was impeccable! Should open a franchise in Montreal!

Thank Edith B
