“Very pleasant food experience...and reasonably priced”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Near our hotel, however I did not pick up on this restaurant during my reviews for them in the area. But the snowy weather kept us closer than expected to our hotel and wandered in for a late lunch our last full day.
Great food quality and serving portion for the price. The service was inconsistent due to shift change, but very pleasant when they were around.

“Great food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was just down the road from our hotel and without wanting to venture too far in the -20C temps we ended up here. The food was delicious and exactly what we wanted - not too heavy like most of the other French Canadian food available in QC. I had the fresh cooked Canadian Salmon with vegetables and my partner had the meatball pasta, both of which we're very tasty! We also had dessert and wine and it was very reasonably priced. The service was a little slow but I would highly recommend this restaurant and would go back again in my next visit to QC.

“good but limited lunch menu”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

there were only 5 items on the lunch menu. The Caesar salad was really a wedge salad. Great pomme frites!

“Sidewalk cafe and bar - amazing!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We stopped for coffee and croissants at the outdoor cafe on our visit to Quebec. We had a very nice waitress who spoke English well. The food was very good and the coffee was hot and strong. Later that evening, after dinner, we went back to try the bar. The bartender was both competent and entertaining and we tried both the local beers and some recommended drinks. Nicely heated and beautiful decor.

We loved this restaurant! My husband and I ate dinner here and both were very happy when we left :)
He got the pork chop w/maple syrup sauce (best pork chop we've ever eaten- so delicious and moist!) and I had the curry seafood dish (also excellent!). Friendly waiter, nice wine, great atmosphere. We enjoyed it so much, we wanted to go back the next night to repeat.....
