Description: Overlooking Grande-Allée, Le Concorde Québec is an iconic part of Québec City's skyline. Long owned by the Loews chain, the famous hotel-located a stone's throw from the Plains of Abraham and the heart of the city's nightlife - has always had that wow factor. On its 28th and top floor, L'Astral had long turned heads before being taken over by the Groupe Restos Plaisirs (Cochon Dingue, Café du Monde, Paris Grill, Lapin Sauté, JaJa la Pizz) in the fall of 2014. The restaurant needed a facelift, and the change was well worth waiting for! CIEL! is a must for those who want a taste of paradise. CIEL! offers guests a cozy and contemporary restaurant and bar area featuring a 360-degree view of the city. Go "full circle" in one hour and thirty minutes - just enough time to enjoy a divine meal - while contemplating Québec City from the sky. Don't miss the after hour starting at 9 p.m.!

We were staying at the hotel (which I wouldn't recommend) so we went up here one night. We had a drink which were reasonable given were you were. The restaurant turns one full circle each hour. We were there for 45 minutes had one drink and no one was pushing us out. Now it was crowded either. Staff was very friendly as well.

The view was spectacular from the 27th floor of this revolving restaurant. The cocktails were most interesting (in the best way) and garnished with the most delicious fresh fruit not to mention the amazing fruit in the sangria. The staff was extremely accommodating since we did not have a reservation (so make a reservation). We ordered an assorted cheese platter of local cheese and we really enjoyed. Highly recommend this special place for the view, service and great menu.

We went to Ciel for a tea and to see the views from the revolving restaurant on the 27th floor ( you don’t have to have a meal).
Even though it was a dull day the views were great.
We just had tea and some nuts - there were other snacks if you wanted them (plus a full bar if you wish).
Surprisingly there weren’t that many tourists there.

The view alone is worth trying this restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised how delicious their food was too. Nothing on the menu really sounded good to me but I ordered the Roasted Cod and it was very delicious and reasonably priced. My husband ordered the rabbit and loved it. We also had the mushroom appetizer which I liked the best and quite a few drinks and our bill still didn't add up too high. I'm very impressed with the restaurant's quality since they have such a nice view, I'm happy they cook good food too.

We ate here for lunch and it was the first thing we really did when we got to Quebec City. The restaurant is on the top floor (I think is the 28th) and you get a great view of the city. To help you out the restaurant rotates at about an hour and half for a full rotation to give you an entire view of the surrounding area. It’s a very FANCY restaurant feeling.

The food was…good. It wasn’t fantastic by any means (I’m also much more of a cheap burger and fries kinda guy) but I did enjoy it. We got the BBQ wings, the swordfish bacon, the BBQ ribs and the steak. The wings were good and the bacon was something else, but the steak and ribs didn’t really have too much seasoning on them. It could be a Quebec thing as opposed to how we have it back in the states, which it totally fine. The food was good, but it wasn’t anything that I would say “Man that was amazing!” at the end of it.

Finishing our meal, they brought a surprise desert for us to help us celebrate our anniversary. I had mentioned it in our reservation and I was amazed they had done something let alone remembered. It was a very nice gesture and it went a long way.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting. Although the food left a little to be desired the main attraction is the view and that was incredible. You can see everything, and for us since we went in October it was awesome to see all the different color trees in the surrounding areas. Worth the price of food alone, so the food is basically free!
