presentation with a complicated association of flavors: a delightful experience. A picky, jaded epicure finds 30 minutes of culinary heaven in an obscure bistro. Bravo!!

We love French Bistro food. After reading the reviews for La Cohue, we were excited. The reviews were good, but I am beginning to think that people review when they are either very happy or very unhappy about a venue, not if it was ordinary. La Cohue was just ordinary for us.

We started with the foie gras and a beet salad. The salad was nice, served with chevre cheese. The foie gras was a surprise, I never had foie gras (fatty liver) served as a whole fried liver! It was greasy, with a flavour similar to bacon fat, the texture was not good and the presentation was to real life for me - I could see it was the liver of a duck. I prefer when the foie gras is served in its usual paté form.

For dinner we choose the Salmon Tartare and the Encoute (steak). Both were not bad, but nothing exceptional.

Dessert was consistent with the previous courses, ordinary.

At $120 including 2 glasses of wine, I was disappointed.

This small restaurant is not to be missed. Yes it is in a strip mall but please don't let that deter you from the exquisite food, wine and service!! We enjoyed the Gnocchi as a shared appetizer which was outstanding! I then had the duck which was cooked to perfection! The creme brule I had for dessert was one of the best ever.
This restaurant is only a very short walk from Hotel Le Bonne Entennte in Quebec City and far superior to the Hotel's restaurants in Food and service.

Bistro sympa dans un petit centre d'achats avec beau decor existe déjà depuis 13 ans . Soupe chaude et délicieuse . Boudin à suivre - belle carte de vin - Vin Barbera au verre excellent - service attentif et professionnel

Super little bistro in small strip center. Off core so it has to be good and consistent to survive for 13 years. Highly recommend this restaurant with its attentive service and quality food. You can have one or two items or special priced full menu for all meals - had vegetable soup and blood pudding - both delicious and well presented - Nice Barbera wine by the glass

Still cannot believe that a gem like that is hidden In a mall!!! Food is really good, wine list is great with private imports at a good price! Service is incredible! And for kids, at last a restaurant without fried food!!! The kids loved the duck confit!!! And I'm sur the selling price is under cost!!!

Will be back!!!
