I went here with my family and I got the breakfast pouting and I loved it! There meals are freshly cooked and I would recommend trying it!

We had breakfast here (not included with the hotel, but very good and not too expensive) and we also had dinner here. Breakfast out on the patio was wonderful. We had dinner inside (it was a bit rainy that day) so didn't get the great views, but the food made up for it. Wonderful ambiance, and the food was very... More

This restaurant is just across the street from chateau Frontenac. We sat at a window, enjoying the sunshine and people watching. The server was great, friendly and efficient. The choices on the menu were good...breakfast pouting, omelettes, etc. Very pleasant and highly recommend for breakfast. We didn't eat any other meal there.

We stopped to lunch and the restaurant was very active. The bartender/server seemed to to everything and her service was very good. Lunch had good value -- good food and reasonable prices. They have a good selection of beers and drinks. Extra: the bartender looks like Jennifer Lawrence!

We thought the food was so-so. I had the lamb shank--it was tough and the sauce tasted like it came from a bottle. The duck confit salad was very good, however. The atmosphere was okay but the music was too loud and intrusive. The service was quite friendly but a bit aggressive--we felt guilty for not ordering a full bottle... More

Breakfast Poutine (baked potatoes, cheese curds, super ham, poached eggs, and hollandaise. OMG. other than the anticipated cardiac arrest, life couldn't be better. My wife had the Eggs Benni and it was great and came with a CUP CAKE!!!! Prices weren't bad for old Quebec. Service was splendid.

The smoked salmon eggs Benedict was so good! The cupcake was a really nice touch. My boyfriend had the morning poutine, very well liked.

We ducked in from the cold to have an early evening appetizer and a glass of wine. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the bartenders. Beautiful setting on the square...the interior is comfortable and cozy. The calamari appetizer was good but ordinary otherwise it would have receive an excellent rating.

We stopped at Restaurant 1640 while visiting Quebec for the Winter Carnaval. We had salmon for dinner and it was delicious! It was cooked with prunes, sake and maple syrup. The presentation, portion as well as the taste was perfect! The wait staff was attentive and delightful speaking both French and English. Definitely planning a return trip to this restaurant...

Food was average, but the service was the best we had while in old Quebec! The drinks were cold and delicious. I would recommend eating elsewhere, but pop in on a Friday and Saturday for some cocktails and live music.
