We wandered past this restaurant on our second day of exploring the beautiful old city and decided to return for dinner. Great decision!! Excellent service, reasonable prices and tasty food - Elk burger, steak and frites followed by a Creme Brule. Highly recommended.

No matter how long you intend to stay in Quebec, never ever miss this place during diner time. It's cosy, truely welcoming, serves delicious food and ditto wine. Leave room for the desserts, they are truely delicious, and top it off with a perfect espresso.

Enjoyed sitting outside on the patio with a nice Proseco and an eclectic charcuterie of unusual items. Very good pate and cheeses.

The service in this cozy little restaurant was wonderful and welcoming and this was beautifully matched by the food that was served.

I would highly recommend the quiche and the maple... More

My husband and I had dinner here in early September. The cafe is located on the street at the base of the funicular. The waiter was very friendly and patient with our attempts at french.

What a delightful place to take a load off your feet and enjoy a leisurely lunch or snack. While the small terrace is a popular place for people-watching during summer and fall, we actually prefer the charm of the tastefully re-decorated dining room.

Small restaurant so ensure you have a reservation. Good range of choices. 4 of us ate there and we all enjoyed our meal. Very pleasant staff, made us very welcome and didn't rush us. Food was very nice and comforting, like having dinner at a family member's home.
