“Ideal place for once in a lifetime visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Got a special offer from tuango.ca for a 59$ fine dine in Quebec City, which said: pour une expérience gastronomique raffinée pour 2 personnes au réputé Café de la Paix du Vieux-Québec (valeur de 130$).
Yes the AAA steak was as delicious as both the appetizers they offered, but the service was long and lame while the desserts was not even better than your boulangerie.
Other than the francophone clientelle and servers, the only French ambiance is the parisian jazz music, since the deco is as old and banal as their regular clients which undoubtedly attracts more than two locals from city nearby.
Lesson learned from overseas tourists, this is an ideal place for once in a lifetime visit: just once, not more.

“Disrespectful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I was the first reviewer of this restaurant and got them listed on Trip Advisor. Back then, a fabulous experience.

Now they are rude and insensitive. I have a food intolerance now and asked the manager or owner(?) what menu items were "off limits" to me. He provides a vague/non-specific response and suggests I instead speak with a waiter. I am left with the impression that he cannot be bothered having to attend to someone with special dietary restrictions. I follow-up my request with the owner/manager(?) and he still ignores me.

There's no incentive or consistent respect shown to customers here.
