This was our first restaurant experience in Quebec, and it set a wonderful tone. We arrived around 5:30 on a Saturday night and were the first people on the little terrace, but by the end of our meal, it was full of locals enjoying the wine they had brought. The menu is extensive and contains choices from North Africa, such as couscous, merguez, and pastilla (Moroccan chicken pastry) but also dishes you may recognize from Lebanese or Turkish fare, such as kebabs and shawarma. Our meals came with three cold salads (cabbage slaw, tabbouleh, and green salad) as well as a starch (couscous or rice) and the main course. The bathrooms were clean and service was friendly. (For travelers from the US: remember that Quebec is similar to Europe - you may have to ask for your check. When your server does not hover, that is a sign of respect for your mealtime, not neglect.)

Aux Deux Violons has been a fixture in Montcalm for several years now. A little outside the tourist circuits of Quebec City, the place is popular with residents of the dense residential sector of Montcalm many of who come, like myself, on foot to a restaurant not too far away.
Previous visits were disappointing for me and for friends who went there: service was often cold, rushed, and unpleasant. This time it was different: staff were friendly and courteous, in spite of the crowded Christmas-party evening.
I had a shrimp tagine with a side order of couscous. The food was very good, a good value for money, but nothing to particularly write home about. If you're in the mood for a good, honest couscous or tagine, this restaurant will not disappoint. But better north African food can be found elsewhere.

We came here on a recommendation from a server at a little bistro we ate at. He sent us because he used to work there and we were looking for somewhere away from all the tourist spots we kept finding and a family owned Moroccan restaurant seemed perfect! It was about a two mile walk from where we were staying. It was dark out and we felt very safe. (We live downtown in a big city so safety is a must for us) Upon arrival we were seated promptly. The server spoke enough English to accommodate our questions and provide great customer service. This establishment does not serve alcohol but you may bring your own wine or beer which we saw all the other tables doing. I am unsure if there is a "corking fee" since we did not bring any. The food was good and portions fare. The mayor was eating on the room next to us so it must be good! I highly recommend eating here while visiting Quebec City.

After a day for alot of exploring and walking we were looking for a restaurant near our B&B and we found 2 Violons right next door! They have a wonderful pleasant welcoming staff. The menu provided a lot of delicious choices and the prices were very reasonable. The meal that I chose came with three small salads that were delicious and tasted very fresh. The chicken was very tender and flavorful. The restaurant decor is very pleasant. Next time we are in Quebec City we will return to 2 Violons to try more of their offerings. A real keeper!
