Located in the Auberge St Antoine. Good selection of drinks, and a small menu. The food is excellent. There is a daily special for lunch.

After a day of walking around Quebec City on a damp, rainy day, we decided to stop in at the Bar Artifact for a mid afternoon snack. The server helped rearrange the seating in the small library, so we could be close to the fireplace. The cheese and charcuterie platters were delicious. The decor which uses historical artifacts from the location is clever and unusual.

We arrived at around 9 and it wasn't very crowded. We sat at the bar and were immediately tended to. We got the Rosana and the Mojito. Both were great. The atmosphere is great, it's very trendy and the artifacts displayed are really cool!

Neat place to have a drink and look at a 300 year old cannon ball. Also had fresh Oysters shucked right at the bar, very fresh and tasty!

I'm confused about this Relais and Chateau, which is a group that prides itself on its attentive service.
We had two drinks at Bar Artefact. The first was fine, no problems at all.
The second? We waited 15 minutes for someone to notice us (bar was not full, maybe because I was with my teen daughter?). When we were finished with our drinks and had chatted a bit, I tried without success to get the attention of the servers. They had one other table aside from us. They did not once even glance our way, for probably another 20 minutes. I finally got up, went to the bar, and asked for the bill.
This is a first for a Relais and Chateau in my experience. I don't require tons of attention but I was constantly ignored at this property.
