Not your tourist place !
Definitely a place to eat for the discriminating food lover. Great attention to detail. Each Element on the plate is unique in taste. You can see the Chef is passionate about his work. From appetizer to main course, a real joy. In this resto, you get what you pay for.

The best meal we had in QC!
We were told that this this restaurant, adjacent to "Le Continental", was in fact operated by them and even used the same kitchen. "Conti" was more informal and less pricy than its higher priced neighbor. We had great meals here. My veal medallions dish was wonderful. My spouce's salmon dish was delicious. My desert which was part of the complete meal was a cappuchino cake--also wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Quebec City.

Good spot for lunch!
We were starved and popped in. Saw white tablecloths and thought "uh oh...$$" but very reasonable priced and delicious lunch menu. All good!

Unfortunately they have a table for two that is in the middle of all the service traffic and on one side of the table a huge column. I think that table should be converted to a hallway and not used to seat guests. That was disappointing, and they had no alternative seating as it was a saturday evening. A specific request to not get that table is recommended. Otherwise great place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at Conti Cafe. It was not pretentious. Attractive, contemporary atmosphere with a lot of attention to detail.
The food was very good as was the service. My only quip was that butter was used heavily in place of olive oil. I greatly prefer a good olive oil to butter any day....particularly in pasta dishes.
Pricing was reasonable.
Overall, we'll recommend this restaurant and will make it a repeat experience when we're back in QC.

I went with my wife during a weekend spent at Quebec City. I read good reviews about this restaurant and I am happy we tried it. The food is just amazing, service is great. The only negative aspect is that tables are pretty close to each others, but it is to expect for a restaurant in the Old City. At this price per square foot, I would pack the place as well. I would recommend this restaurant anytime.

Love this place
Perfectly sized portions well-served by good-looking waiters. The pasta with seafood was excellent and didn't make me feel bad about the calories. We enjoyed this place on our last trip to the city and will go back the next time. My only negative comment is the low lighting. Although the atmosphere benefits, it makes it difficult to read the menu's small font.

Great option in upper town
We booked a table in advance of our trip to Quebec City. It was nice to know we had plan for dinner that first night and grateful for the ease of Open Table. After looking at various restaurants we settled on Conti, which looked to have nice atmosphere and menu in good location on Rue St-Louis. It was a great meal for our party of six. The ambiance is very nice with windows that open looking onto the street in Old Quebec. All six meals were wonderful, not super expensive as can be the case in a resort location and the service was attentive. All around it was a great pick!

I dine regularly in North Beach in San Francisco. This restaurant would do very well in that highly competitive market. Wonderful Veal. I would be a regular except for the detail that I live 3000 miles away.

This is our 4th time eating here and would definitively come back!

Great Service and Reasonably Priced
The service at this restaurant is outstanding. We had a reservation, but arrived early and had a few drinks at he bar. Bartender was friendly and continually checked in with us. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgable about tg food and they chatted with us while serving our food.
We had mushroom risotto, duck risotto, chicken with fettucini and spaghetti carbonara. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the portions were average size, but just right for our party. For desert we had creme broule which was prepared perfectly.
Overall, a great meal at a fair price in a very busy restaurant near the Fairmont Hotel. We highly recommend this restaurant when visiting Quebec City.

We were also given a lovely table by an open window and the weather was glorious that evening.
Our dinner could easily have been marred by a misunderstanding b/t one of us and our waitress, Adele, but she handled the mistaken order with aplomb and the dish was graciously replaced. Very nice atmosphere, albeit, be warned, expensive wine list.
One of our best meals in QC. We would def. return.

Good restaurant but one problem
Had a delicious meal of prosciutto and melon, veal medallions with porcini, and maple sugar cake. Waitress could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Only problem was with the Open Table reservation. I made the reservation earlier in the day I was dining. When I got there, the greeter told me he didn't have my reservation and that he didn't have a computer handy - he offered me a seat at the bar. I pointed out that I had made my reservation early in the afternoon, and that I would have to complain to OpenTable about its not being honored. He somehow managed to find me a nice table.

Good experience close to Frontenac
My husband, 20 year old son and I dined here on August 20. We found the food delicious (we had veal, steak and fish), the server was helpful and the ambiance good. Our calamari and lobster bisque were great as well. The location, only a block from our hotel (Frontenac), was a definite plus after walking all day for several days during our trip.

While the cost of the entrees
While the cost of the entrees was reasonable, the price of a bottle of wine was outrageous.

What a great find in Quebec! Our first decent dinner in Quebec! The filet mignon and lamb chops were tender, nicely presented with mashed potatoes and vegetables. We ate here three times after being very disappointed with other restaurants. Very reasonably priced compared to other similar restaurants.

Lovely Dinner in Quebec City
It was recommended that we go to the Conti while on our stay in Quebec City. The food was VERY GOOD. The ambience was WONDERFUL...very eclectic!!! Service was good, however, waiter, much younger than us, didn't seem very interested in anything we had to say...a little condescending...but we didn't let it spoil our evening. Pricy $$$.
