Had Xmas Eve dinner here upon arrival in Old Quebec and enjoyed it immensely. They had a prix fixe menu with great options for us. The drinks, wine and service were wonderful as well. Traditional live Xmas music completed a very nice evening.

If you want to try traditional Quebec food, this is the place. The waitress was quite helpful in explaining the menu and giving recommendations. So many options to choose from. I would recommend the Caribou.

To the best of my recollection, the 4 of us had dinners that did not contain dairy. The staff was very accommodating, so I'm sure it won't be an issue.
