We had breakfast at this establishment on two separate occasions. Both times we were given a table close to the windows so we could enjoy the views and the sunshine. As well, the quality and quantity of our dishes were excellent. Service was great on the first visit but a little spotty on the second. Great place, lots on menu... More

We decided to try this restaurant based on the overall score from TripAdvisor. We had a reservation for 1930 hrs which was a good thing as the place was packed as it was the Christmas holidays. Our server was very attentive and the service was outstanding. The food was simply delicious and we believe the prices were right for the... More

We were a party of 4 and were seated in our own little alcove with a window on the street. The menu is varied and it's hard to decide - everything looks and sounds so good. We had a delicious and leisurely lunch while watching the many tourists go by. Also had a great view of the small park and... More

Was impressed with the food and the service. Perfectly cooked beef, medium rare to our taste, nice garnish, good ambience and excellent service. Must visit if you enjoy nice evening meal.

I was here with a large group and they did a great job with the service. Food was of good quality and creatively prepared. I've been to a lot of the restaurants in Vieux Québec and this one is good, not outstanding. Very conveniently located for tourists who are walking around.

Came here with a large group (12) for pre-dinner cocktails. Service was slow, but restaurant is very quaint and cute.

We popped in restaurant 1640 on a snowy afternoon for lunch. Many items seemed reheated and poorly done. The service was fine. The rolls had the feel that they were not made that day and reheated. We ordered mussels and they had a strange texture also like they had been reheated and had to send them back. The sauce seemed... More

Popped in for a quick drink and ended in staying for lunch - sharing 'Plank' for two, delicious with plenty of variety. Ended with a couple of 'Calvert' cocktails which were delicious - the barmaid even told us where to get the local gin from so we could make them once we got home - well worth a visit x

Thank WendyGill
