The restaurant is in the vieux port area of Quebec city. Great service, great food. We dined outside and had a great experience. I had the pintarde and my wife had lamb both perfectly cooked and well presented. We tried the dessert sampler and yum.

We were regular customers, but after tonight's experience have to reconsider going there. Waitress didn't follow our requests, and replacement waitress spilled whole plate and glasses she was clearing off our table into my lap. Owner, who was on site, didn't make a showing to...More
