It was fine for a lunch but is neither very old nor new inside. Best was that it was not quite on the main tourist route. Food felt a bit pre prepared and heated up.

Located in the Maison Gosselin - a house from 1683- in Lower Quebec. I had just completed a walking tour and was eager to try this local dish called 'poutine'. My guide recommended Cotes-a-Cotes and I was not disappointed. The view from the terrace was lovely, the poutine was delicious and - apparently not your run of the mill poutine... More

Headed to Quebec City to Montreal was ruined by the brunch place we went. We weren't expecting much at this point since service in general in Montreal was basically looking at you up and down and attitude. Amazingly, from the smiling hostess to our server ALEX, everything felt so welcoming we couldn't believe it. Alex, was amazing describing plus recommending... More

I really enjoyed this food. The location is perfect in old Quebec. If sunshine, you can enjoy the nice terrace! The quality of the food was great, service as well. I ordered a wonderful tartare and onion soup. ! I recommend the place

Five family members (age range 25-70) with varied food preferences met for dinner here, and all were happy with their choices, from poutine to ribs to risotto. Everything was well-prepared, flavorful, and just plain good--which we had not found to be the case with other restaurants in this very, very touristy yet lovely city. Atmosphere also good, location perfect, and... More

Had the Surf and Turf platter for two the other night. Waitress (Marie-Pierre) was exceptionally attentive and super nice to us. Food was well-prepared and quite delicious. There was only one other party in the restaurant while we were there, but it was a pleasure to have the attention of restaurant staff who genuinely cared what we thought and went... More

The prices are very reasonable. Our waiter was fantastic. Such a friendly man, and very good at anticipating needs. The soup of the day was wonderful, and the goat cheese salad was decent.

Located close to the port, just outside of the Lower City, this restaurant is a popular site for tourists. Not a place I would highly recommend, but did serve it's purpose while we were very hungry and in a hurry.

We decided to enjoy a bite to eat and watch the tourists go by. We didn't however expect to sit for over 40 minutes for a cup of the soup special with a bun and baked onion soup! We very politely asked because everyone around us that had arrived with or after us had been served their food. The waitress... More
