“Tremendous atmosphere, service, and food”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Stopped in for both breakfast and dinner during a recent trip, and can't say enough about this restaurant. Service was some of the best we have encountered, extremely friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent, and dinner was perfect. Not pretentious, fairly priced, and the atmosphere was warm and relaxed.

Highly recommended!

“Friendly Neighborhood Spot In Quebec City”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

I dined twice at Bonnet d'âne during my three day visit to Quebec City. The service is very friendly and bilingual (English/ French). It has a very local and casual feel. The veal with mushroom sauce is a delicious dinner offering. They also have a very nice and diverse wine list. For lunch they offer a prix-fixe menu that includes soup/salad, main course, and wine/ beer for $20. It's even a great spot to just have a glass of wine while catching up on emails and taking in the scene. They also have free wifi.

“very cool spot....”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Always a good sign when a lot of locals are at a restaurant. Walked by this location all weekend and decided to give it a go on the last night. Very funky atmosphere! The service was really really good.
The entire menu was classic French café. (with a few exceptions like nachos) everything was prepared perfectly form the medium sized menu. Parmesan fondue with tomato jam was not what you expect from a traditional fondue quite tasty.
Braised beef was really done great. The braised rabbit two mustard sauce was a bit underwhelming was expecting a lot more but still worth the effort to try.
Cafe Au Bonnet d'ane does not take themselves too seriously so neither should you. Just sit back and enjoy good value for the experience.

“Great pasta and great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We ate well in Quebec. This choice was such a pleasant choice. It's on rue St. Jean, but once you're inside, you feel like you are in Old Quebec and another world. The decorations are nice, but the past is excellent. Really really good. There were 7 of us and we had 4 different pastas, all of them excellent. I had a sandwich, which wasn't special, but was still quite good.I tasted everybody's food!

Just love the ambiance here and well worth it for pasta. Not too expensive.

“Nice place for dinner”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Had dinner here with my wife in June 2013. I had the duck which was great. My wife said her steak was a little overcooked, but it was still pretty good. The cafe is cozy and welcoming, and the servers were very nice. No complaints, would eat here again.
