“Hopefully you will get lucky and fresh oysters will be on the menu!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Top notch service. Perfect menu in terms of many seafood offerings, diversity of other choices, yet not too overwhelming. I happened to dine here when Canadian oysters were available, and that was an extra special treat.

You will have an extremely attentive wait staff throughout your meal. If you like mussels and fries, order that. If you like fresh fish, order whatever is fresh that day.

Be careful when cruise ships are in port, as this restaurant will be overrun due to its location next to the pier.

“Excellent French Bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Been to this place at least 10 times. Their menu is a typical French bistro menu with great daily specials. The food is always good and the ambiance as well. It can be a little noisy for a business meal but their service is quite fast.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Went with a large group. Ate off of their tasting menu, and it was fantastic. Service was exceptional, and the restaurant was accommodating to our needs. The view wasn't half bad either ;). Great restaurant, great food, and great atmosphereQ

“not worth the hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went for supper at this restaurant, decided to go with the fixed menu or chef;s table format which is very popular with the cafes in old quebec city. Decor was nice, service was average, food fell well below my expectations. The meal was approx $40 which included appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee. The fondue shrimp was cold and hard to find any shrimp, my entree was steak, which turned out to be a flank steak that was only suitable for a lunch time steak sandwich, the dessert ( creme broulet) was to die for the best I ever had. No refill offered on the coffee. The wine was extra and over priced. There are many choices for dining in the old city, so don't waste you time on this one for the money.

“Lovely waterfront view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Stopped in for lunch after a morning spent in the Musee de la Civilisation and thought this restaurant might be too pricy and stuffy, but were pleasantly surprised by the affordable table d'hote three-course lunch (soup, salmon and creme brulee). We were seated at the window and enjoyed the view inside and out: watching the ships and boats on the river and watching the well-dressed local folks engaged in such animated conversations and lingering over leisurely lunches. Our waiter was pleasant and professional.
