We didn’t look at reviews for this restaurant until after we ordered. The bread was stale and the food was just average. I had the veal, it was tender but the sauce was tasteless and the vegetables were cold. My husband got the Sicilian spaghetti, the sauce didn’t taste homemade or authentic. My daughter had the lasagna and she couldn’t tell if there was meat in the sauce. So many other places to eat, walk past this one.
On a positive note, our server was very friendly and happy and he did his job well.

Thank Heather L

We sat here because it was the only restaurant on the Grande Allee with immediate seating on the patio. Our server was friendly and efficient. It took a really long time for our food to arrive, which we were OK with because it was fun watching the people and cars go by. The food was nothing special. The baguettes we got pre-meal were not great either. You can do better on the Grande Allee.

Since this restaurant is along the tourist trail to old town Quebec our expectations was a bit low. However service was excellent and food likewise. Not the best carbonara evere eaten but very good. The sangria they made was really nice as well, as was the tortellini. Please try!

Very underwhelming. The food was only okay and not really worth the price. We were disappointed with the overall experience. Although our server was friendly, there was no extra attention or courtesy, and no discount for an overdone steak. The steak was ordered 'medium rare' and was delivered 'very well done.' It was flavourful, so, despite the doneness, I did not send it back because I wanted to enjoy the meal with my husband (eating at the same time) and we already went through this imbalance last night. It seems that a number of restaurants in this area, proximity to Old Quebec, do not need to worry about returning patrons. The tourist trade seems to have enabled them to provide a less than satisfying dining experience without hurting their bottom line. This is the second night that we were disappointed in Quebec City. We enjoyed our lunch experience and our touring activities, but dinners were a real letdown. This restaurant could be so much more than mediocre. Too Bad. I wanted to give it a thumbs up, but will have to give it a pass.
