Very lively. We were there to celebrate work anniversary and was perfect for that. Right in front of the Chateau Frontenac!

We made brunch reservations for Mother’s Day. The host gave us a nice table. We all ordered crepes with various meat sides and fruits. The coffee was excellent and the waitress pleasant.

We found this restaurant based on proximity to our hotel and we are so glad we did! Everything was delicious, the waiter was fantastic and the ambiance was the perfect setting for our last dinner in Quebec. We especially loved the accordion and saxophone musicians!

Restaurant is at a great location especially if the weather is nice and you can sit outside. Noise levels are rather high if you are hoping to have a conversation. It is a decent enough restaurant.

We had a great experience for our daughter’s 14th birthday dinner. We were reserved a window table with the amazing view of the Frontenac. As we are all lacto-vegetarians I can only highly recommend the cheese plate - we all enjoyed every offering and pairing. Delicious! And we can attest to the quality of every desert (we ordered all four). The maple creme brûlée was everyone’s favorite with varied favorites thereafter, but all were delicious. Go!

The location was convenient in the Old City. The food was amazing. We had the pork chop with goat cheese and the filet with blueberry compote. Out of this world. I have food allergies and they were more than happy to make a dessert that fit my needs since there was nothing on the menu that I could eat and my friend was dying to try their maple creme brulee. It was a fantastic experience.

If the thought of being seranaded by an accordion and saxophone scares you - stop right now. Take a deep breath... and get over it. What a charming little restaurant! Food was fantastic - we had did the prix-fix menu for $39 - onion soup, entree and a dessert. It was seriously delicious - one of the best manhattans and incredible wine. Being a classical music snob I was terrified of saxophone and accordion - but it was just right and added to the atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful dinner, we will return.

We were seated immediately after checking in. Our waiter David was very attentive and ensured we were satisfied with our meal. The ambiance was family friendly. The food presentation was a piece of art and even my picky husband didn’t have anything to complain about. Definitely a must stop when visiting this quaint city. Reserve your table in advance.

We started with a cheese board which was delicious!! It came out and was much more detailed than we expected.

I ordered the pork and - I kid you not - I think it was the best pork I’ve ever had in my life. It was so tender and juicy and the goat cheese helped it all come together. I highly recommend.

My S/O ordered the braised beef and it was also incredibly tender and delicious!

Service was great.
