Absolutely amazing place!!! Steeped in history dating back to 1754. Solid drinks at reasonable prices. Staff is super friendly and kind, even to English speakers. Real wood fireplace!!

Does the French-speaking world even have the concept of "pub"? It appears not, judging from Manet's and Toulouse-Lautrec's paintings. But that was France, not Quebec. Anyway, this place has a nice cozy atmosphere augmented by the brick walls and ceilings. You feel like you're in...a true local hangout, which is the highest praise for a bar of this type. Food was very good, and it went well with my tangy Quebecois cider. Very good service. And the recorded music was my first introduction to Quebecois folk music, which sounded very Irish (that's a compliment) although the language was French instead of Irish. I definitely recommend this place.More

We went there because the our valet recommended the French Onion Soup. It did not disappoint. It was remarkable. Add to that that we had amazing service. The owners were both in the pub and working constantly. They were friendly and fun. The atmosphere was...really fun. The beer selection was great and they were having a special with a maple syrup whiskey that was delightful. We had such a good time that we returned the following day for lunch and we capped off the evening with a beer there. Great atmosphere and a wonderful place.More

I suggest you find another spot for drinks. Just went for cocktails and a snack and the service was terrible. Ordered nacho’s and 40 minutes later had not arrived. Told the waiter we didn’t want them because we had dinner reservations in a while. He...got the “manager” who said we had to pay for them anyway even though they neglected to place the order. I guess that is the way they make a profit. Much better places to go with better service! Never got our nachos!More

Waiter was rude. French onion soup had no onions and was basically weak broth with lots of cheese. Outdoor seating was nice but inside was very stuffy and hot. Would not recommend.

We stopped in to see the pub after reading reviews. The building is tiny but worth a look for sure. The onion soup was delicious and went well with a cold beer on a cloudy, rainy afternoon.

A great hidden little venue….great draft beers & lagers and fabulous food albeit a limited menu it was fabulous! It was a difficult decision between French onion soup or croque monsieur….we chose the croque and we’re not disappointed- tasty! All finished off with a maple...whisky shot. Great staff. Highly recommend.More

While we enjoyed looking at this old building, and admiring the old brick construction, we were quite disappointed with the service in this pub. When we first entered, we were greeted by a staff member and told to choose a table. After seating ourselves, we...waited several minutes for a server to come give us menus. Service continued to be quite slow all evening, and we felt mostly forgotten. At the end of the meal we asked for our bill (after waiting some time to catch the attention of the server) our server said she would bring it right to us, but then she promptly disappeared. We waited several minutes, and then went to pay at the bar. A visibly drunk employee helped us. When we exited the pub we saw our server outside chatting with someone on her cell phone. On the positive side, the food was ok. We had the onion soup and smoked meat nachos. There was a generous portion of cheese on both these dishes and they were both good. On another positive note, at one point in the evening the owner called “shots” for everyone in the pub and we all received a free shot. I didn’t particularly find the shot to be tasty, but it is always nice to get a free extra!More

Arrived with a group of friends about 9 p.m. for an after dinner drink. The wait staff were helpful and professional. However several people at the bar, including a few staff off shift, were drunk and incredibly loud. We left after one round of over...priced drinks.More

What a terrific pub this is set in the lovely neighborhood. Perfect outdoor spot on a warm spring day. The rose was refreshing and the lunch delicious. We had the crab cakes and melted Brie both with yummy side salads. A great spot!

My wife and I have always wanted to try this pub and we made it this time. Now we are upset on what we have been missing. Simply put one of the best French Onion soups we have had. This place is small but on...our visit we were able to get a table as it wasn't tourist season yet. If you want a great little pub, this place is for you. Oh btw try the smoked meat nachos.More

Just happened upon this place with one of a kind atmosphere. We had French onion soup and nachos both of which were excellent. I hesitate to order nachos in restaurants as they are often dry chips with little in the way of toppings but these...were great with lots of cheese and smoked meat.More

We ate at Oncle Antoine's at a late hour as no where else was open in the lower town. Nothing fancy but good. Loved their own local beer. Enjoy your visit. Suzanne

No idea. You’ll need to call. It’s a very small venue.
