“Very good bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Select menu, with seasonal and local products. Fine, modern and tasty cuisine. Might be too elaborated for people with simpler tastes (i.e. not used to herbs, lot of flavours).
It is definitely a place to try though if you want something different.

“Upscale but casual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here based on the recommendation of our b&b host. The food was very good- the salmon tartar and piglet were absolutely delicious, the pumpkin creme and fish du jour were good but nothing spectacular. However, service was excellent and helpfully bilingual. Wine list is extensive and the servers were knowledgable and willing to make recommendations.

“Marvellous local bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is what Quebec is about! Fabulous, noisy, close packed bistro in the newer part of town - but still old! - seated at a tiny table where we were served "hot pheasant" and smoked duck followed by a fantastic ceasar salad with boudin noire and wonderful braised beef. All followed by fine local cheese and accompanied by good wine at good prices. Great service also.
A real genuine experience of food and fun - relax, take it easy and enjoy the boisterous and epicurean Clocher!
