We just happened upon this wonderful spot as we were walking the street behind our hotel. They served the most decadent chocolate mousse that I have ever tasted. Small but delightful place.

In Old Town--recommended by Auberge St. Antoine--they were spot on. Lovely fall evening--outdoor seating (even accommodated our small dog). The beet salad, veal ravioli and duck in cassoulet style were standouts. Very reasonable and nice wine selection.

Small restaurant with a small but varied menu. The flavours of the food were amazing - sliced beets with goats cheese and a wonderful ginger dressing - will try to replicate at home. Very attentive service. Have booked again!

We had a great dinner here. We tried the fish special and the veal ravioli. Also, we had the cream brule and the crumble of the day. The crumble was interesting, instead of the typical American topping of oats and sugar, it had nuts and...More

Quebec City is a wonderful city but it has it's fair share of tourist restaurants where the fare is pricey and uninteresting. We were walking down Rue de la Montagne in search of dinner and instead of turning right towards more touristy area we turned...More
