Fine poutine near the Hilton and Marriott hotels. Kind of rough around the edges and definitely not fine dining. Yet the poutine is amazing. Fried potatoes, squeaky curds and gravy. Simple dish. This is a way to eat well, perhaps like a Quebectine.

This was another stop on our Food Tour Stop where we tried our first authentic Poutine. This is the place for a quick bite and is an easy walk outside the wall of the historic city center.

simple food done right, fresh and friendly. I recommend the simple poutine, the small portion was large enough for one person. The mac and cheese croquette was light and crunchy. Went twice, excellent job.

Great service! Friendly staff willing to listen to my terrible French. Awesome poutine. I will be back. Not for an intimate dinner. Just awesome poutine.

Delicious, "regular" size poutine was too big for my wife and me to finish. Friendly staff happily suffered my atrocious attempts at long-atrophied school French (their English was about on par).

We were tired after having flown in from Dallas, Texas. This was close to the apartment that we rented in Quebec City. We needed to eat. This place was excellent. We had never had poutine. We're not from Canada. They don't serve it back home....More
