This is a small Bistro/Restaurant in the middle of Old Quebec.. The look and feel is classic French cuisine but relax enough not to be too uptight. The food was amazing, and a very fair cost The staff was charming and the service great There is only 8-10 tables, so make a reservation if you can. We didn't have one... More

Little restaurant, but cozy and the food is great. Make a reservation. I had venison tenderloin with some kind of blueberry sauce on it. Poutine as appetizer. Both excellent.Good service in a good location too.

We happened on this Bistro as we were walking by looking for a place to eat. The food was excellent and the service was really great. We were able to get a table without a reservation, but I think we just got lucky. It is fairly small and we happened to get the last table. Our waiter was awesome and... More

We tried this spot after walking past it a number of times and seeing its reviews on TripAdvisor. The service was very good, but the restaurant was chaotic the night we went because of a few families with a number of children.

I think I counted 8 tables….so, it is very charming and intimate with very personal service. Reservations highly recommended because of the size or go at an off-peak time. The menu had a nice mix of French and casual type food ~ so, something for everyone. Nice attention to detail. Everyone enjoyed their meal here, and would return.
