We read about Clocher Penche on the blog of a traveler who listed a number of not-to-be-missed places in and around Quebec City. We knew they are a favorite spot for Brunch with locals and tourists alike so we made a reservation - it paid off as we did not have to wait at all. NOTE that parking is street... More

Piglet appetizer was amazing, duck breast for two the thing of dreams and chocolate ganache dessert to die for - definitely one of the best meals we have had in quite some time.

We were told that this was a 'must' go to restaurant. We went for breakfast. From the crowds of people we were expecting an outstanding breakfast. For us, it was okay. The staff was definitely friendly, the seating was as expected. When we were there we saw the lunch menu and maybe should have gone for lunch.

On a cold night, the restaurant had a nice crowd, most of them locals out celebrating. The food and service were first class and we felt like we got great value. Cozy, but with lots of windows, so you felt like you were in a hot spot, in a happening neighborhood.

I went there for my birthday, and I had a blast! The dishes are creative, food is rich in flavours, the ambience is relaxed (but chique) and the staff is very friendly. I will return again, and make sure to try out the blood pudding!

Easily one of the best brunch places in town and certainly the most popular one! The portions are generous and the explosion of flavors will have you wish Le Clocher Penché opened a restaurant in your town too!

Our hotel told us about Le Clocher Pench. We wanted to find a nice restaurant specializing in French cuisine. The concierge nailed it. My wife and I agreed that this was one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant was very quaint and everything on the menu looked incredible.

We were in awe of how good the food was! We came to Le Clocher Penche for brunch and are so happy that we decided on this restaurant. A cozy spot near our hotel so it was perfect, especially considering there was a snow storm! To start we had a complimentary parfait type dish, apple gelatine with a cream crumble... More

I had read many favorable reviews of this restaurant and am so glad we went. It was the best meal we had in Quebec (and we had many good meals). We went on a Friday at lunchtime in December. You really need to reserve a table...I'm so glad we did as the restaurant was full. It is an attractive space... More

Very fresh local food done imaginatively. We had the Benediction (poached egg, fish cake, spaghetti squash, hollandaise sauce) and the Pere Vert (mushroom tart, carmelized onion, spinach, boiled egg, cheese sauce) Highly recommend.

Thank RickOttawa
