My son and I ate dinner here during a recent visit to Quebec and were most impressed by the quality, value, and presentation of the meal, the tasteful lighting and atmosphere, and the warm and pleasant staff. We were toward the back of the dining room where we could gaze on the impressive dry-aging meat locker where various cuts of meat were curing, and we dined on some superb beef cheek as one of our main courses, along with a deliciously fresh Icelandic Cod catch of the day. But, honestly, what most impressed us were the vegetables--an endive salad that was insanely fresh, delicious, and well-dressed for late March, and a squash soup that was my son's favorite dish of our four-day stay in Montreal and Quebec during which we ate many fine meals. You'd never find food of this quality at this price in major cities of the US, though fine dining at reasonable prices seems to be standard in Quebec province. Definitely worth a visit on your next trip to Quebec.

It's our second time at this restaurant, but we barely remembered our first time. We went because we received a gift from a friend.

Wow, what about experience. The onion soup was just awesome! And the beef cheek was so tasteful.

Our waiter was friendly and suggested the soup and cheek - great suggestions.

We are from Quebec and we certainly will come back sooner than later.

Interesting menu, friendly and helpful waitress, good food! Our hotel made a reservation and we were glad they did as it was completely full!

Basically it's a high end comfort food, sure it's got some twists and nothing we tasted was bad, however we didn't feel inspired at all, but considering the price the value proposal is adequate.

The food was high-end, flavorful, and used novel ingredients. We were in Quebec City for 1 week and ate here 3 times! I am vegan and they were able to accommodate me with delicious, unusually flavorful food. The service was exemplary. Would definitely come here again, many times, if return to Quebec City.
