“classic casual bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

The food is always excellent and the room is comfortable and welcoming. The menu is seasonal and leans towards french bistro classics. They make a fabulous cassoulet. Good wine list.

Be careful around brunch hours on the weekend.

“Great ambience, friendly service, terrific food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Recommended to us by our hotelier as a good place to eat at a good price. He was not wrong. Good québécois cuisine, well balanced menu with a good wine list (not over- priced).
Very friendly staff, in a small restaurant that is clearly popular with local residents. We went on Quebec fete night and were lucky to have booked.
Lobster salad, a seafood and pork belly risotto(delicious by the way!) followed by local cheeses. With a bottle of wine and two stickies to follow all less than $200cdn.
We left happy!

“Superb Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Le Cafe is located a bit off the beaten path so walking from waterfront is not doable, but once there the amazing food and service are worth the cab ride. There were 5 of us and everyone loved their meal and our waiter "Patrick" was a delight.

One of the most enjoyable meals on our trip. Superb menu, food and wines, relaxed, helpful and knowledgeable service, congenial decor. We wish the place were local to us.
