I've eaten at many Michelin rated restaurants and the quality of the food here is definitely in that league. The space is super friendly and not the least bit pretentious - wear your most comfortable clothes and get ready for an amazing time. This restaurant is basically two guys who love food and love making their customers happy. We shared... More

Loved the meal. I read up on the place only about a week prior to the trip. Knowing it was a long shot to reserve a table for two on such short notice, I sent an e-mail. I did get an email back but initially, we had no luck. I did not actually get a reservation right away but we... More

What an incredibly enjoyable and fun meal - a tiny little unsuspecting place with extensive wine list and delectable menu. We had such a great time and the passion of these two guys is palpable. The little place has a scent continuously infused with braised meats, herbs, butter - if you like richness, this is for you! Fois gras dessert... More

We booked our reservation 4 months in advance- Vincent and Ben only book a single table for the whole night, so you will have a ton of privacy while dining. Pick the table to the far left in the front corner and sit facing the bar so you can watch Ben work his magic in the kitchen- you may or... More

We called and were able to secure a reservation at the last minute on New Year's Day. Everything was amazing. I LOVED the onion soup, so much so, that I asked for another bowl for dessert. Instead of that, they sent me home with a "to-go" portion! If you are in Quebec City, visit this spot. It's worth it and... More

During our first visit to Quebec City we were fortunate to reserve a dinner at this highly praised restaurant. It was a delight to sit at the bar and chat with Benoit as he worked. The food is delicious---especially the dessert with frozen foie gras shavings. Thank you for your love of food and people!

You will not get an experience like this in any other restaurant. My wife and I came here on a Sunday night in February. As others have said, the restaurant is run by two just guys. Our server/host, Vincent, recommended a wine and explained the unique menu. I tried the horse tataki and butter rabbit. I'd never tried either and... More

It's all been said. We enjoyed the ambiance, the presentation and the food. That said, arrive late (8:00-9:00) if you don't want to hear the menu repeated loudly. The neighborhood, while working class, is not sketchy. The wine list is expensive and nearly unreadable, so you are pretty much at the waiter's mercy as far as reccos. We'd return again... More
