We were lucky enough to get a reservation on short notice, and we had a wonderful time. Rather than bringing a wine list, the server asks you what you like after describing several types of wine and brings you an appropriate glass.The chalkboard menu is perfunctory (and in French) but the server explains the preparation of every dish thoroughly and...

This place is a gem! If you are looking for a night where you can sit for a few hours and enjoy your food, you have come to the right place. They have two seating times for dinner, and they change their menu every night. You have to pay very close attention when they tell the menu, and the dishes... More

Saw this on Anthony Bourdain and had to try it while visiting Quebec City. The food is awesome, the ambiance is very low key with a chill vibe and our service was great. Everything thing we had here was so good and I wish we could have tried more. .

Saw this place on a few high profile shows and it's surpassed the hype. Their no nonsense kitchen did an amazing job on all of our dishes with creative flavours and great pairings. Would have gone here every night we were in Quebec if my girlfriend would have let me.

Outside appearance does not tell the incredible vibe and delicious food inside. Very knowledgeable waiter/manager and chef Bob were outstanding. Sat in the fireplace next to the kitchen and felt like family. Great wine recommendation and help with the true Quebec menu. Hope to get back next weekend.

My wife and I enjoyed an exceptional meal served by fun, knowledgable servers. We loved the casual vibe with a diverse and delicious menu selection. Highly recommend it. Three hour sittings, definitely book early to get your table!

I have been several time to l'"affaire est ketchup". It is a great little restaurant with a genuine ambiance. I am always impress to see what they can do with their kitchen. Food is really good, the wine menu is short, but they made some good choice. Service is great, they know their food and product. It is a pleasure... More

It's a small place located on Rue Saint-Joseph. The restaurant doesn't have a sign, so it can be difficult to find if you're not familiar with the place. The menu is written on a chalkboard and its in French, but don't worry the waiter will explain everything to you. The menu is adventurous. When I was there the menu offerings... More
