After the stellar dinner we had the night before we were looking forward to a little bistro meal. I had eaten here a few years before with friends and had enjoyed the patio outside and the food. Tonight we started with the house tossed salad which was good with candied pecans and tart cranberries to cut the maple dressing. Greens... More

This little (8 table) bistro near the foot of the funicular combines outstanding food and service with a smile. This was our second visit in 2 years and it is still greats. The french onion soup was and still is one of the best I have ever had. The duck dishes were excellent--confit, terrine, etc. I would suggest making a... More

After a 6 hour drive to the haute ville, who needs to spend hours walking around reading menus and puzzling over where to eat? It's got a lovely, warm, not too modern ambiance, the service is always prompt, attentive but not overly solicitous, and the menu ranges from fine dining to burgers and poutine. Good food, good price, good service... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this place while we were in and out of the shops near by and with it being winter and cold outside we decided to go inside to and have lunch and a hot beverage. We both had their homemade hot chocolate and it was very good and i had a poutine which was tasty,... More

This is a small Bistro/Restaurant in the middle of Old Quebec.. The look and feel is classic French cuisine but relax enough not to be too uptight. The food was amazing, and a very fair cost The staff was charming and the service great There is only 8-10 tables, so make a reservation if you can. We didn't have one... More

Little restaurant, but cozy and the food is great. Make a reservation. I had venison tenderloin with some kind of blueberry sauce on it. Poutine as appetizer. Both excellent.Good service in a good location too.

We happened on this Bistro as we were walking by looking for a place to eat. The food was excellent and the service was really great. We were able to get a table without a reservation, but I think we just got lucky. It is fairly small and we happened to get the last table. Our waiter was awesome and... More

We tried this spot after walking past it a number of times and seeing its reviews on TripAdvisor. The service was very good, but the restaurant was chaotic the night we went because of a few families with a number of children.
