This restaurant far exceeded my expectation, it has to be one of the best meals I've ever had. The service was incredibly good, not one detail was missed. Each course from the amuse bouche to the cheese plate was exceptional. I can't wait to return.

For an incomparable culinary experience. The service is the best in town, the ambiance quiet and raffined. And the food is sublime.

World class (on par with a Michelin 2-star restaurant) and great service. The apertif/appetizer pairings were amazing -- definitely do them!

We brought our 1-year-old baby with us and they were very accommodating, with the waiters all smiling at her and keeping her entertained. Best food in Quebec City and the price is what you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

If you love delicious food, with impeccable service and creativity then you must save your calories for this fabulous restaurant! It meets the highest criteria for brillant gourmet food. Interestingly the price is no more than any good restuarant in Quebec or Montreal. Although I ordered only an Entree' and dessert there must have been seven courses before I left this gourmet treasure find!
