This place was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. Food and service were both exceptional. Asked to have our meal concluded within a time frame and the staff was on it. Service was first class.

Right in the heart of Old city, across from Chatteau Frontenac. Great location, great service, great decor, but food is overpriced for its taste. Mediocre taste and menu choices.
