We had a nice lunch at this location. We had to change tables 3 times because of the sun light on a hot May day. Also a little noise. Food was good.

Had dinner on Easter Sunday and it was very good. We had French onion soup followed by cod and maple crème brulee for dessert. The atmosphere was great, there was an accordion player moving through the restaurant adding a wonderful feel to this restaurant. The server was very easy to chat with in either official language and he certainly made... More

We ate here our first night in Quebec City. At first is seemed a little stuffy, but that was a misconception. The server was pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious.

Bonjour, We realy want to apologize about the dinner that you had in our restaurant last Saturday.

This allows us to make adjustments and ensure that... More

Food was delicious, very well serve and great servers. Also, accordion music player was great, makes atmosphere very pleasant and happy. There is a great dinner deal: appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee or tea for a good price. Location is very good too, view of the Chateaux. 100% recommended!

I went here as part of a large group. The staff seemed quite overwhelmed with this. There shod have been more staff put on to cope. It took 30 minutes just to get the soup entree. It was a nice soup. I would have liked to see brown bread roll option. I am skeptical the salmon was fresh & wild... More

Charming restaurant that you can't miss from the upper portion of Old Quebec City. It's perfectly situated to sweep in all of the tourists in the area, which it did to us also!!! We went there for breakfast. Try the maple crepes or the eggs. They usually come with nice toast, sliced fruit, potatoes and a small salad (yes, salad... More

The 1640 looks like a real tourist place as it has wonderful alfresco dining right on the Place d'Arms park with a view of the Chateau Frontenac and other sites. Don't let that deter you; this is still one great place for lunch. We have eaten here on three separate visits to Quebec City. I can't think of visiting without... More
