After travelling for most of the day, this was the perfect place to start our vacation with a lovely meal ending with a delicious crème du brûlée for dessert.

The food was incredibly affordable: $12 for lunch and a beer (or glass of wine). Can't really go wrong with that! I had a brie grilled cheese on ciabatta, which came with salad and potato wedges. Really can't go wrong with that!

We stumbled upon this spot while looking for a place to have lunch in lower town. It is several blocks away from the touristy area and has a real neighborhood/local vibe which I loved. We had a wonderful meal - french onion soup, panini type grilled sandwich with salad as well as the smoked salmon appetizer which was the best... More

My family of 4 includes a young adult and a teenager. We visited for dinner after tasting a fantastic smoked salmon appetizer as part of the Christmas Food Tour. We hoped for a leisurely, quiet dinner and we got that. We arrived early, 6 pm, and more diners arrived about an hour later. The restaurant is small. We had a... More

Had a good menu and the fixed price choices for lunch were quite generous, including beverage and dessert. Not a huge place and so you get a sense of intimacy. Seemed a good place for locals, and visitors.

Just a short walk from the crowded and pricey restaurants of the lower port streets of Petit Champlain . We asked a local for a restaurant tip and were not disappointed. Nice atmosphere, friendly waiter named Jacques and a great affordable lunch menu. The pizza was yummy. The lasagne and caesar salad were delicious. Quick service and a friendly staff.
