So this is a classic French restaurant in the old port. Nice decoration and courteous service. The foods are decent. Not exceptional or innovative, but they meet your expectation. And the portions are big for such kind of a fine restaurant.

The Bonaparte is a very good, somewhat formal French restaurant. It serves classic cuisine at the expected price (entrées at 35-50 $Can) The fish dishes are top-notch, as is the maple-flavored duck. Desserts include several soufflés. The decor includes artwork, candles, chandeliers - very romantic....More
