We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around old port this past weekend. We stopped and browsed the menu board and the offerings caught our taste buds. We met our friend and went back for an evening dinner. The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful and catered to food allergies. We met one of the chefs who created our fine... More

I've just stopped by at this restaurant today and dined with my family of 5. At first, we weren't sure but we were hungry and it was open (we arrived around 4pm on Sunday) so we took a chance. What a wonderful it was! Alex (the waiter or the owner?) was great and he gave my niece a surprise treat... More

You need to find it from a few minutes walk from the old port. We stop by and ate sweetbread, giant scallops, foie gras... amazing food and flavors! Good experience for the senses. Interesting selection of wines! fine dining food in casual atmosphere!

We found this caterer wondering from one full patio to another. This little gem was much worth being told everywhere else was full. We had the Ballotine au poulet and the Jarret d'agneau (chicken and lamb) and they were both delicious. The meat was melt-in-your mouth yummy and the portions were fair for the price (keep in mind this is... More

The food was exceptionnal: great presentation, great taste, great pay on texture and contrats, served hot. The service was very good, too. On the downside, the room itself feels more like a take-out... More

New in Quebec City, this little restaurant is also catering. I've been there twice and the food was simply delicious. Try the "Brandade", cod with mashed potatoes topped with "Tapenade" (olive mixture) or 'the Hachis parmentier au canard" (sort of sheppard's pie made of duck oigons and Porto with pureed Yukon gold potatoes). The "Tataki of salmon" is also one... More
