A word from Cafe Sirocco
'Si vous appréciez les tartares ou tapas, vous serez comblés chez Café Sirocco, qui en a fait sa spécialité. Vous ne pourrez résister aux arômes du tartare de saumon en charlotte de saumon fumé, pas plus qu’à ceux du tartare de pétoncles aux crevettes tempura et sésames grillés. Peut-être préférerez-vous plonger dans la section Vague de poissons pour y déguster une assiette de pot-au-feu de fruits de mer ou encore, un pavé de thon saisi, poêlé de bock choy et poivrons rouges. Vous pourrez toujours également choisir parmi l’exquise sélection de grillades ou de pâtes fraîches. Et les becs sucrés ne seront pas en reste car ils auront le choix parmi une myriade de desserts sucrés, fruités ou glacés.

    Pour tous les tapas contenant de la viande, la viande était caoutchouteuse, sèche et trop cuite. Les tartares ne semblaient pas frais, car ils étaient déjà oxydés. Déception généralisée à notre table, surtout pour ceux qui aimaient autrefois la nourriture de ce restaurant et qui ont été particulièrement déçus de la dégringolade de la qualité.

    Cela fait une dizaine de fois que je vais au Sirocco depuis son ouverture, tantôt pour fêter une occasion, tantôt en groupe, tantôt entre amis. À chaque fois ce fut un plaisir renouvelé. Les menus évoluent et se rapprochent de la cuisine familiale équilibrée tout en ayant un brin de fantaisie et de délicieux tartares. Les portions sont généreuses et le prix abordable. Le service est toujours excellent et donne le gout de revenir.

    The restaurant was very nice, food was good and the service was outanding. My wife and I had the Portuguese style sangria that our waiter made for us. It was fantastic. My wife had the Ouso bucco which was very good but need more of the delicious sause on the pasta. I had the amaroni also good but also could of used more sauce. Very nice place but was a little loud and the chairs were very uncomfortable.

    We tried most of the tapas and the majority was delicious, with complex flavors and perfectly cooked. Several items though were quite yawn inspiring, such as the near tasteless chicken brochettes and Greek salads with flavorless feta cheese (absolutely no saltiness). The humus tapas was really garlicky tho. The duck, shrimp and scallops were fantastic. The price was great as was the service.

    We had a very good lunch for two consisting of 4 appetizers. All were very good. The tapas menu is only at night. We returned with friends for dinner and had the chef's sampler tapas (with Sangria) along with a couple of appetizers. All were very good. We also had the chef's sampler of assorted desserts....again, very good. The service in both visits was very attentive and helpful to us non-French speaking diners.

    The restaurant is very pretty, but due to the hard surfaces, it is also very loud. My husband and I could not hear each other across a two top table. For the most part, the food was very good, at least the entrees and dessert. Neither of us were particularly enthralled with the tapas. It seemed as if some of the "hot" ones had been made ahead of time and then re-heated.

    The restaurant had a special of their entire tapas menu for $25 (for 25 tapas). It was an excellent way to enjoy what this restaurant has to offer. I won't say we enjoyed every one of the tapas but it was a full range of foods and all were fresh, and well prepared. Service was outstanding (in both French and English) and the owner of the restaurant was a delight. We told them we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they brought a nice desert to the table with a Happy anniversary message. The restaurant was busy and everyone was njoying themselves. It was a terrific meal, and I hope to be back some day.

    While visiting for the weekend with my wife I asked a Quebec City resident for the name of his favorite restaurant in the city. Without hesitation he said Cafe Sirocco. I am so glad I did. The service was delightful. The food was outstanding! We started with the salmon tartare and it was great. My wife had the seafood risotto and I had the osso-bucco. We were both very pleased with our choices. Our waitress Elizabeth was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. After spending the week in both Montreal and Quebec City and having many delicious meals, we both agreed that our overall experience at Cafe Sirocco was the best that we experienced.

    We really appreciated our last saturday night at Café Sirocco, having dinner with two very dear friends we haven't seen for a while. The food was very good, the service was really nice, the place where we sat (the storeroom) was just quiet enough for an animated friendly conversation. We sure will go back to that restaurant on our next trip to Québec city!

    Was a little disapointed... for a restaurant with so many waiters the service was just ok. Water and bread too a long time to arrive and our waiter was not very familiar with the specials. Food was pricey but just ok. Bavette was over-cooked, saumon tartar had too much maionnaise and desert creme renverse (or creme caramel) was dry - no caramel. Was not a bad meal but eating with my 11 year old daughter who stuck to the kids menu 90$ was a very expensive meal for a very averege dining experience. Would not recommend

    Nous nous sommes rendu au café Siroco pour souligner notre 11e anniversaire mon conjoint et moi un petit jeudi. Notre expérience à été un série de belles surprises; D'abord le décor puis les martinis ! La sélection est impressionnante et les serveurs savent nous guider. Ce fût un baptême réussi ! Pour ce qui est de la nourriture, les nombreux spéciaux et la qualité des plans ont de quoi satisfaire les gourmets au porte-feuiolé au régime. Seule petite déception: là sélection de tapas du 4 à 7... J'aurais souhaité quelque chose de plus éclaté.

    We were trying to find a last minute alternate to our original plans (the restaurant closed unexpectedly). After searching through UrbanSpoon, Yelp, FourSquare for recommendations, we opened up OpenTable to make a reservation. It may have only been six blocks from the hotel, but at -30C (with wind chill) it was a LONG six blocks. The food was great! I opted for one of the filets while my companion opted for the tapas menu. Both of us were very happy with the food we received. We were seated next to the wine cellar - well away from the door! Excellent location, warm and inviting atmosphere. Not sure which was best... the wine, the food, or the company!

    Located away from the tourist areas, Cafe Scirocco welcomed us Texans with great food and friendly service. They have an extensive tapas menus which you can either choose for appetizers or for entire meal. Entrees were plentiful too, although the English menu did not post any daily specials. I chose the Penne with Duck, but the waiter suggested another dish which wasn't on the menu. The dish had both duck breasts as well as duck leg confit, which turned out to be a great final meal on our Quebec City vacation.

    J'apprécie beaucoup le Café Sirocco pour les repas du midi puisqu'il est l'un des rares restaurants de cette catégorie qui a compris que les gens n'ont pas 2 heures pour manger. En général il ne s'écoule pas plus de 60 minutes entre notre arrivée et l'addition. Tout ça se fait sans avoir l'impression d'être bousculé. Le service est courtois, rapide et précis.
