“Lovely small restaurant”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Everything about Cafe Bistro du Cap is small - the restaurant, the menu, the number of staff (we counted 4 including the cooks). Every dish we ordered was excellent - bouillabaisse, beef cheeks bourgignon, steak, veal ravioli. The wine list is unfortunately too limited and doesn't live up to the food, but the service was very pleasant, and we enjoyed our dinner here. If you're ordering dessert, go for the crumble.

“Rude and Insulting”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

My sister and I recently spend three days in Quebec City. We were looking for somewhere to dine late Monday afternoon August 18th and decided to choose amongst the restaurants on this street. We stopped to read the menu at this restaurant first and continued down the street. Undecided, we retraced our steps and saw a lady placing a sidewalk menu board in front of the restaurant. After reading it, the lovely aroma coming through the open front door drew us in. My sister asked in French for a table for two. The man (owner?) behind the bar very rudely shouted at us "We don't open until 6:30. This is not fast food. We are not McDonalds". (We were looking for somewhere to have a nice meal.) We left In shock - three days later I still am! We had a pleasant meal with very friendly staff down the street.

“Friendly and delicious, upretentious”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

You can tell the owners take pride in their place and their food. Simple, small menu, but expertly prepared and delivered efficiently without being rushed. Tight space, but great atmosphere.

“Awful Restuarant Stay Away”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Stay away from this place, The service is horrible I stayed there for 40 minutes before they come to give me the menu then another 40 minutes before I can order. Really Rude owner and servers. It is not a clean place. There are many other places with much better food and friendly service Quebec City that you don't have to go to this place.
