“Great views and food, interesting service”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

This restaurant is right on the water and has terrific views of the St. Lawrence River. We had a table by the windows and next to a radiator (yay!). I had the seafood pot pie, and it was chucked full of seafood - delicious. I can't remember what my friend had, but she enjoyed it as well. We both ate every scrap on our plates and had to go for a long walk afterwards as we were sooo full.

As far as service, we must have ticked off our waitress, because she took our order and never came back to our table. The other waiters came over and refilled our drinks, brought our check etc.

“Atmosphere of a ship on the St. Lawrence...”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Le Cafe du Monde in the old port area of Quebec City, right by the 2/300 year-old buildings is great. Atmosphere is elegant but relaxed. Our Sunday brunch, with extended family, was enjoyable although it rained the whole time. No sitting on the patio, as we did in previous years. The food is always excellent...no complaints on service or other things! Well worth a visit as prices are reasonable for such a lovely venue!

“Not quite as advertised”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We visited the Cafe for lunch based on recommendations on other websites. They advertise a gluten-free menu, however when we arrived we were told that the gluten-free menu was outdated so it would need to be explained by a server. The menu was in French but not English, so this also made things difficult. Many of the items on the gluten-free menu were not gluten-free, even though the server and the chef insisted they were. We were told that the french onion soup was cooked long enough that the gluten from the beer in the broth was "cooked out of it." This information is not only inaccurate, but dangerous for those with sever gluten reactions. The chicken I had was really good, and my husband enjoyed his steak. Overall it was a lackluster experience.

“Three-course lunch menu at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Normally this is an expensive restaurant, but they have lunch at a good price. A three-course for under CAD 20. A beautiful view of the port comes with it. The food is good, service is decent. The restaurant is quite roomy and nicely decorated.

“beautiful view... great experience”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We had a nice dinner with friends at this restaurant. It's quite a busy place and even had to wait a while to be seated. Next time we'll make reservations...
I would say it's kid and family friendly... not really a place for a quiet romantic dinner.

There was a lot to choose from on the menu... our waitress was fantastic and pleasant.
