“A dinner and a show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

The restaurant is known for flambe and they do a truly outstanding job in this regard. Their Caesar salad is made at the table in a traditional fashion and is to die for. Our server prepared shrimp at the table which were perfectly cooked and had an amazing flavour. Additional meals were rack of venison. Yum! The staff are very friendly and helpful. All courses were outstanding. Wine recommendations were excellent. Not a cheap place but worth every penny. Be sure to have at least one meal they prepare at the table. We will definitely be returning.

“Delicious night to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Our friend had recommended Le Continental for dinner last Saturday night based on a previous experience that she had.

We had made reservations and arrived to find our table ready and waiting for us. Our waiter promptly started to take care of us, he helped us with delicious wine selections and answered ALL questions that we had about our orders. We wanted to try a few of their famous flambe meals so a friend and I decided on the Duck orange Flambe. The others in our party tried other choices that were outstanding as well. When the Duck arrived it was a whole duck that had been pre-cooked but ready to be cooked in the special orange sauce. It was so delicious and a very large quantity so this was a time when I should have had my husband around to finish the leftovers :) Kevin our waiter was fantastic, he also served up a delicious Caesar Salad for 4 to start and we finished off with desert, maple creme brule, maple sugar pie and the assorted cheese plate. I wanted the traditional Flambe Cherries Jubilee however I was too full from the duck (next time)

Overall a wonderful experience to remember - a great night thanks to the food, company and effort from our waiter.

Will definitely come back.

“Outstanding Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Our night was special and the wait staff and chef made it even more special. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable. We felt like royalty being waited on and served by a precision team of professionals. Our meals were cooked perfectly to our liking, were well portioned, artistically presented, and extremely tasty. We were pampered; never feeling rushed or ignored. We'd highly recommend Le Continental if you want elegance, first-rate service, an outstanding meal, and want to have fun, too!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

The food at this very nice restaurant is very good. I found the cost a little on the high side, but all the restaurants in Old Quebec seem to be quite expensive!

The set menu was $54.00, and there were way more than enough food and is was all very good. Excellent pea soup, wonderfully cooked Hailbut, wonder fruit sot for dessert.
