Small restaurant so ensure you have a reservation. Good range of choices. 4 of us ate there and we all enjoyed our meal. Very pleasant staff, made us very welcome and didn't rush us. Food was very nice and comforting, like having dinner at a family member's home.

This was our second lunch at Bistro Sous le Fort. It is located near the bottom of the funicular in Lower Old Quebec. The menu is interesting, food great and ambience charming. Grab a table outside weather permitting.

We enjoyed a fabulous lunch at this cozy local cafe. Service was friendly and efficient. 5 of us chose lunch from the daily specials. They were all delicious. We chose a local bottle of rose. It was a perfect lunch on a cool fall day.

If it hadn't been so hot and we hadn't been so tired and thirsty, we would not have stopped here. Fortunately the server was nicer than either of the hosts. The food we ordered (calamari, just for a snack) was good. The drinks were a bit overpriced. The patio, like many, is small and packed with tables for maximum seating.... More

My husband was on a quest for the best poutine and the peppercorn poutine here won his vote. We shared that and a charcuterie board for lunch. It was delicious.

Was in Quebec for first time with my husband and another couple. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is VERY small. We got there at 2:30 and had to come back at 3 for lunch. They had our table ready for us. Our waitress, Elisa, was the best!! The food was all perfect. Loved the snails, French onion... More

don't go there for the food. My wife ordered the bar pie. Not only was it frozen it was tastless. I ordered the smoked meat sandwich, the meat looks like it was pre=packaged deli slices. . I could go on but why bother. In a city with spectacular food this is not a place to go.

I had the table d'hote menu - a good three course meal with coffee that was reasonably priced. My main of salmon salad was very good and a generous serving. Good for a nice lunch.

We ate at this restaurant at the suggestion of a local recommendation but were very disappointed. The quiche had so many ingredients it did not taste like there was any egg at all. The fries were soggy. The salad was very basic. The fish and chips was mediocre, and that was their "best" dish. The kitchen is not visible from... More
