Breakfast was terrific and reasonably priced. A real find in a very expensive city. This was probably the best meal we had in two days in Quebec City.

Decided to ignore cost and have a blow out meal on our last night in QC. Both had the filet mignon and lobster with a bottle of merlot. Absolutely fantastic. The waiter seemed a little apologetic about the lack of veg but we both felt the meal was well balanced, the vegetables were very tasty, the lobster was perfect and the beef was cooked to perfection. The one time I really did not mind tipping the waiter either - he was polite and attentive all evening. Would recommend to anyone.

1640 is on tourist bus square opposite the Frontenac so it’s going to be crowded.
We had an excellent breakfast there before the tourists had got off the cruise ships, so we decided that the wait for a table in the evening was probably worth it.
I ordered Veal Parmesan with pasta and she who must be obeyed chose Shrimps and Scallops. Both dishes were well presented. Mine was a substantial amount of food and I wasn’t expecting a ragu on the pasta. The volume defeated me, but it tasted very good.

2 couples from Ontario visited this restaurant in Sept. Right in the heart of the action of the Old City the breakfast menu encompasses just about everything you would want. The omlettes are light and fluffy, The fruit cup fresh and filled with all types of fruit. The service is friendly without being overbearing. I would give the 1640 a 10 out of ten

My family and I went there in the late evening. The fries were good and I had a hamburger. The Creme Brule was my favorite ever though. And I've had a lot of Creme brules. If I am ever in Canada or Quebec again, I'll definitely be coming by.
