Ok, I will save you the time of reading my review. Make a reservation NOW, don't wait, the experience was Beyond EXCELLENT! Ok if you still want to read, here is my experience. The place is small, we made reservations 2 months in advance, so I suggest that as well. We were greeted immediately and by name. :) We were... More

We had read reviews here on Trip Advisor and elsewhere about IX Pour Bistro. The actual evening was even better than we had hoped. It's only about a 15-minute cab ride from the port. We made early reservations (5:30 PM) and were greeted by Vincent. He runs the front of the house and Ben is the chef. As I recall... More

My husband and I came here to conclude our stay in Quebec City, and it was nothing short of greatness. We had a car, so we drove to the tiny restaurant. Seating only 20 or so a night, we were one of the later reservations which made for a great visit. The food was incredible, by far the best place... More

I can truly say this was truly one of the BEST meals I have ever experienced. IX Pour Bistro is a tiny space that is HUGE on talent thanks to its hosts Vincent & Benoit. Vincent runs the front of house and is not only a gracious & charming host, but a pairing master with suggestions based on your tastes.... More

A small intimate room with only 9 tables. The owners Vincent and Ben are a part of the experience. The food is beyond incredible. Don't miss the onion soup. It's like nothing you ever tasted before. and for dessert we ordered the foiie gra . don't be afraid it is outragiously good. And so is everything in between. Again thanks... More

Thank you to all the reviewers who led us here! We were lucky enough to get a reservation due to a cancellation, but don't plan on it - reserve RIGHT NOW, before your trip! The food was amazing, but the experience even better. This charming restaurant is run by two young men, both personable, welcoming, and obviously talented! The wine... More

We visited Quebec City in September and our group selected this restaurant based upon the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! This restaurant is small and intimate. World-class cuisine with impeccable service. Our hosts Vincent and Ben were wonderful! We had several courses, and each was a divine creation brimming with flavour. I ordered a lamb loin on red...

We made reservations at this restaurant 4 months in advance after looking into restaurants to try in Quebec City and it did not disappoint. This 9 table, 2 man operation was a wonderful experience. Food was amazing, everything we tried was exceptional, and the service excellent. You feel as though you're part of their family when dining there. Highly recommend!

The concierge at our hotel was, quite unexpectedly, able to get us reservations for the next day. The space is small and only 2 people make it all happen. The scallop dish with ginger and garlic had a creamy mouthfeel and clear fresh favors. The horse Tataki was an amazing dish with a crutch provided by rice crispier roasted with... More

It is hard to add to the accolades expressed in the reviews! We made our reservations WELL in advance - mandatory with only 9 tables (one "turn" per table per night) and only open 5 nights per week. All walk-ins were turned away as they want to manage the dining experience effectively Benoit cooks and delivers the dishes Vincent is... More
