We decided to try this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. We read the reviews and we were not disappointed. The servers were extremely helpful as we didn't have a reservation. The seating is limited inside so we were happy that they could accommodate us. I started with the escargots and my wife had the French onion soup.... More

Went for lunch, had the special lunch Manu. It comes with a soup, a main dish and tea/coffee. The dishes were good size. Food was delicious and price is reasonable. Highly recommended, will go back for sure!

This is a small quaint charming little restaurant that smells incredible as soon as you walk in. They were able to sit us relatively quickly despite it being full. I ordered what I love the most, salmon tartare and I have to say it was deliciously prepared, very tasty and came with a lovely salad and french fries. My boyfriend... More

My girlfriend and I were visiting Quebec city during the Quebec Winter Carnival. It was a quiet freezing Wednesday night, and we were looking for a place that was rustic, cozy and delicious. We had read things about St. Malo being one of the most popular places for tourists in the Summer, but decided to give it a shot in... More

This is a small French restaurant. Food is delicious. If only you can smell from the pictures. We ordered the fish soup, mussels, salmon tartare, tuna salad and ossobuco.

Funky little cafe in Old Quebec's lowertown. Highly recommended. We ate there on a recent trip to Quebec City, mainly because it was a hop, skip and jump from our hotel. First of all, the atmosphere. As stated, funky, laid back and fun. We hate stodgy formal, so this was perfect. Service was joyful and attentive. Food? Excellent. For appetizers... More

However, there is too much cold outside, cafe St-Mali is the warm place to be; the food is amazing, the wine is good, an keen on familiar ambient of this place.

Came here for dinner our first night in Quebec. Very warm old warm charm with art and knick knacks adorning the walls. Top quality french food, ordered the duck confit, very good. 10/10 would 'retourne'

This place serves delicious affordable French cuisine and big portions. Best onion soup I've ever had and the goat cheese salad is amazing too.

One of the highlights of visit to Quebec City. If you love mussels and fries then this going to be a treat as they serve up some of the best -- and a very generous pot in classic tradition with perfect fries on the side. Ambience is a quaint and classic French bistro with exceptional service with French impressionist art... More
