“Ok experience”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We ate here as part of a Tai Pan tour package. Unfortunately we were seated right next to a table of 3 from our tour who were given steaks instead of filet mignon they specially requested with our tour guide. They were very vocal about it, therefore really put a negative tone on our meal, since they continued to harp about it for the entire meal, & there was no avoiding it, as we were seated so close to them. The overall atmosphere wasn't relaxing, with such tight seating, the high noise level, and the servers rushing about, and rushing you. Our server even forgot about our entrées, so we were waiting awhile. There was a lot to my duck leg, which was tasty, and the Mr.'s sirloin was fine. The potato soup was quite nice. The light airy cheesecake with strawberries on top was ok, not the dense richer type. It was $38 total, everything included. I just think a glass of wine should be included to complete the experience. :-)
I wouldn't rave to anyone about this restaurant, since it's packed with (obviously) tourists and the dining experience isn't special, but it was fine.

“Beautiful outside seating, attentive service and good food!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

What a wonderful lunch we had a little pricey but quite good. The cheese plate featured five local cheeses and was outstanding. The menu is fairly broad which made choosing what to have difficult but no one was disappointed. My husband really enjoyed the micro brew which was the servers suggestion. We don't speak French but here that was no problem.

“This was our favourite restaurant”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We enjoyed this restaurant alot. There was a good variety of food in a moderate price range. We ordered the additional add on cost of soup, coffee and dessert. This cost was an additional 8 dollars per person but well worth it. One group member had pasta and the rest of us had pizza. It was great thin crust pizza. The restaurant is modern, elegant and has a nice atmosphere. The staff were inviting and polite. Of our five nights in Quebec city we all decided this was our favourite restaurant.

“Breakfast was terrific!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

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.
