I ate here three times and was very content with service and food. It was crowded at all times as the location is on the old town square with a view of the Chateau, however we never had trouble being seated. I had a light dinner the night we arrived and the waiter did not seem to mind us just... More

The price-fixed menu is an excellent choice here: we had delicious onion soup topped with a puff of cheese, pork chops with goat cheese for my husband, cod in a seafood sauce for me, and a terrific maple syrup (what else - this is Quebec!) crème brulee. Everything was very tasty; I didn't think I could eat for three days... More

We ate breakfast here 3 days and on one occasion we came here from another hotel nearby. They have a great selection of the usual breakfast fare. Everything we had over the 3 days was good. Service was friendly and quick. They had dinner specials each evening that looked like a good value. They have a great patio out front... More

My husband and I had lunch here in early September. The cafe is located down the hill from the Fairmont. I had french onion soup and my husband had the cheese platter. They had a large number of tables outside under the awning...great location for people watching.

We ate here early on a Friday night. The service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant. The food was very good. My husband had salmon which came very attractively presented and I had mussels in a garlic wine sauce. They could really improve on the mussel dish with real sting fries instead of frozen fries and... More

Small'ish restaurant. Large tour group. Service was really prompt and efficient considering the size of the place. Even if the kitchen pacing was not perfect the food was very tasty and with a nice presentation. Would expect that going in as 1 or 2 couples everything would have been much smoother. Nice place for the center of a very touristy... More

The four of us decided to share some plates and had no problem doing that both in terms of choices and good portions. For example, Caesar salad served on a piece of slate and nearly a whole head of romaine.

This restaurant is next door to the hotel I was staying at making it very convenient. But the food was also delicious. Had a duck confit salad with pate and bread -- all new to me and all lovely

Arrived for dinner without a reservation. We were told they were booked until 9:00 but were seated immediately in the outdoor section when we questioned the open tables. After a slow start we finally received out drinks. Fortunately, the setting is wonderful. Once the food arrived we were in for a pleasant surprise. The onion soup was the best we... More
