Not much space inside on a very busy evening (outside tables nicer but we were lucky to get a table last minute on a Sunday). Friendly efficient service. Enjoyed the Cassoulet of Shrimps and Lobster. It was very noisy - partly customers but also loud-speaking staff!

The bistro's location was perfect for an afternoon of good food and people watching. We sat on the patio and watched many people pass by this quaint restaurant, knowing not what they were missing. We went with the French onion soups au gratin, a maple dressing salad, and an Elk burger which was delicious. Not only did we get good... More

The subject line says it all. Overall this Bistro had everything you could be looking for in a restaurant in Old Quebec. Steps away from the base of the Furniculaire, on a cobblestone road with a quaint patio and inside seating all contributing to a great location. The service was impeccable from the moment we entered the Bistro. The food... More

An elegant spot with very friendly and helpful bi-lingual waitstaff. The room was small but beautiful and comfortable with welcomed AC in the warm August heat. There is a small wood burning stove on one wall which I am sure would make it very romantic and cozy during the long winters. The food was excellent and well presented. The maple... More

From the moment we spoke to the waitress who invited us in, as we dithered outside looking at the menu, we felt looked after here. Hadn't planned to eat a big meal but all the options on the table d'hote menu looked inviting and for three courses ranging from 29 to 33 dollars hard to refuse. Lovely wine, food super... More

Called before to make a reservation and did good. Small Restaurant with first class personnel and food. The lapin confit was too salty for my taste but the very nice waiter had warned me so nothing to say. Great place!

Many people walked by this restaurant not realising the gem they passed up. The area where the restaurant is located is populated by tourist type restaurants with fixed price menus and familiar fare. The wait staff is very friendly and free high speed wi-fi is available. The menu is rich with local starters, entrees and desserts. The warm brie with... More

Tried this out because of all the good reviews here and on other boards. Tried the elk burger because it's not something you get to eat everyday. The meal was quite good but the desserts are memorable. Amazing creme brule' and maple bread pudding.

This place specializes in game, and we had an excellent venison steak. Atmosphere was only OK, its not on the cutest street in the area, but the food was very good. It was a bust night and they moved some tables around to accommodate us. Service was also above average for around here.

We had an excellent dinner at this bistro. We shared the Brie with maple and pecans as an appetizer then my 13 year old son had poutine while my husband and I chose the venison and steak respectively. Dessert was spectacular-the maple pudding is a must!!! We were in Quebec City for 4 days and this was the best meal... More
