“Just right Breton resto”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Like so many crepes restaurants in Brittany, this one is solid and does not disapoint. We had the stroganoff crepes, a lovely composed salad, and the brandade du morue. They were all good and eaten up. Cider on tap. Good place.

“delicious”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Unique dining experience. Breton style dinner crepes to melt in your mouth. We chose dry ciders to accompany - one from Quebec, the other from France served in a china cup/mug - both excellent. Service was exceptional. Restaurant is small but obviously very popular with the locals.
Would highly recommend.

“You want excellent Crepes in Quebec City? Must go to Le Billig!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Thanks again TripAdvisor! We were looking for a good crêperie while staying in the old port area of Quebec City. High rankings and incredible reviews by TripAdvisor, Yelp! and other sites sent up to uptown to this little bistro. So glad we left the hotel in the cold & rain to go here - it was awesome!

Most of their crepes are buckwheat, wafer thin and crispy. We had the La Savoyarde (which was potatoes, onions, bacon, and gruyere cheese) and we added asparagus. We also had the Scallop & Leek crepe (can't remember the name) where we added shrimp. Both were simply amazing! The flavor was perfect and the presentation was enjoyable.

They're also known for the beer and cider, we had the cider special.

We finished by sharing a Dark chocolate and Banana crepe with Chantilly (the best whipped cream ever). OMG - the crepe was as thin as paper, perfectly crispy, and just right for the yummy dessert.

Don't miss this place if you want a traditional Breton-style crepe in Old Quebec!

“Best "Moment" in Quebec City”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend in Quebec City and this was one of my favorite places. We stopped in just seeing if we could have dessert, and while they told us that we wouldn't be able to stay long because of the limited seating and needing people to come for dinner, they would happily accommodate us. Not only did they accommodate us, when I ordered a crepe that required bananas (which it turned out they were out of), a member of the staff ran (literally) across the street to a corner store to buy more. The atmosphere of Le Billig is great and between the very friendly customer service (from the chef to the host), atmosphere, and delicious crepes, I had a "moment" in this restaurant. What a great representation of beautiful Quebec. The walk is not far at all the old town areas, too. Would definitely recommend Le Billig!

“Divine Crepes! Go hungry”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Who knew that the Canadians could beat the French at their own game - wow. The crepes here are deliciously authentic and so much better than a couple of supposed "creperies" in the main street of the Old Town (don't do it - keep walking). All of the standard crepe combinations are here along with some fabulously creative options - my favourite was the duck confit, goats cheese and red onion marmalade. Wow. I could have eaten a second one had I not decided to have a dessert crepe (also delicious - I was tempted to have another one of those as well!)

Definitely go....it's a brilliant lunch spot.
