“Lovely restaurant in the hearth of Quebec City”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

On our last visit in Quebec we went for dinner at the Talea Bistro on Grande-Allée and we had the chance to met with the owner, such a friendly person! He's actually not from Quebec but from France. He praises on bringing the "terroir" to his tables and encourage local producers so if you want to really experience local cuisine with a taste of France I would definitely recommend this restaurant! Me and my boyfriend had a "planche"/plank with smoked salmon, tartare, finger food, ect. Dont miss out on their speciality drinks, a must! The food is delicious, the staff is warm and the deco is authentic but modern. Sarah & Ferenc

“Lovely atmosphere, tasty food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had a lovely lunch at Talea Bistro Urbain. I had the pulled pork on a pretzel bun with their signature fries, and my hubby had the smoked meat poutine. Both dishes had a very nice side salad included. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was attentive and professional. I loved the restaurant decor: lots of exposed brick, leather club chairs, birch trees.... felt a bit like a cozy upscale ski chalet. I would definitely go back!

“Excellent eatery in Quebec City”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stumbled across Talea early afternoon during some horrible weather but were met with some outstanding food, a beautifully presented bistro and friendly service. The soup was fantastic, the pork burger fantastic - tasty, nicely presented, home made chips and my beef and barley risotto sublime. It was well priced and will definitely return and strongly recommend to anyone. A fantastic experience.
