This little gem hidden on 73 Sault-Au-Matelot is a quaint casual/dressy restaurant that specializes in unique French bistro like cuisine. The ambiance is vibrant and buzzing with good energy. Their beef and salmon tartare are some of the best I've ever tasted...probably a house specialty! We also had oysters, lobster and saffron court-bouillon, fishes and molluscs, crouton with rouille and cobia tataki, brussels sprouts, apple, pumpkin seeds. All beautifully presented and delivering on taste with a punch....well balanced flavors and acidity. It was a wonderful time with friends and a great find! Wonderful wine selections to add! One suggestion is that you make reservations before 8PM, the kitchen closes at 10PM.

My husband and I were unexpectedly eating without our travelling companions and without reservations. We walked a block from our lodgings and found Echaude. although they were busy, they had a table for 2. Our entrees were excellent. Our server was very friendly and attentive and went above and beyond to help us bring food back for the couple we were traveling with. he was very careful to ask about food allergies for our friend who has some issues. A delightful, unexpected evening!

My wife and I have a very fine meal here in Oct 2018 while visiting Quebec City. The restaurant is located in the lower part of the old city. For starters we both had an unusual Octopus vegetable soup that was very flavorful . For mains we had the sweetbreads and veal cheeks. My wife raved about the veal cheeks and the sweetbreads were well prepared. We also had a good red wine. Perhaps the best part however was a dessert assortment that contained portions of about 4 different deserts from the menu, all of which were very good. Prices are somewhat on the high end in this busy restaurant.

Ate at this excellent restaurant in the old town on our visit to Quebec. Food good, service fine, reasonably priced for the overall high quality . Well worth a visit.

We were recommended to visit by our hotel. We were certainly not disappointed. Succulent food, good wine list to choose from and very good service with a smile. I had the pork loin which was moist and delicious. My wife chose the fish of day which was most appetising. We would recommend this place to anyone.
