We read reviews of this small bistro and saw that it was just one block from our hotel. So convenient, we tried it. Best decision we made in Quebec City. This is a charming, relaxed, casual eatery. The outside tables were comfortable and not too...More

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

Great food, wine and service! The chef owns the restaurant, and it shows. Try the veal ravioli and lamb shank. The woman in charge of the service area has been there for over 20 years. Don't miss this one!

The menu is short but the quality is excellent. Lovely spot on a pedestrian street with indoor and outdoor seating - we stayed dry in the rain! Escargot, cod over parmesan orzo, bouillabaisse were wonderful!! Excellent meal!
