Outside appearance does not tell the incredible vibe and delicious food inside. Very knowledgeable waiter/manager and chef Bob were outstanding. Sat in the fireplace next to the kitchen and felt like family. Great wine recommendation and help with the true Quebec menu. Hope to get back next weekend.

My wife and I enjoyed an exceptional meal served by fun, knowledgable servers. We loved the casual vibe with a diverse and delicious menu selection. Highly recommend it. Three hour sittings, definitely book early to get your table!

I have been several time to l'"affaire est ketchup". It is a great little restaurant with a genuine ambiance. I am always impress to see what they can do with their kitchen. Food is really good, the wine menu is short, but they made some good choice. Service is great, they know their food and product. It is a pleasure... More

It's a small place located on Rue Saint-Joseph. The restaurant doesn't have a sign, so it can be difficult to find if you're not familiar with the place. The menu is written on a chalkboard and its in French, but don't worry the waiter will explain everything to you. The menu is adventurous. When I was there the menu offerings... More

We were looking for a French style restaurant and read the reviews on TA. We went on a Tuesday and it was full (we did make a reservation). We were greeted and had a nice table near the kitchen. The guys speak English and explained the menu to us. You can pick your own wine. The place kind reminds me... More

Walked in mid-week without reservation and was seated next to the kitchen at a table for 2. Menu is written on a blackboard they carry around. Few choices but whatever you pick will be great. Had scallops and duck breast. Flavors were perfect and bill for two of us without wine came to $74 Canadian. Would eat here often if... More

We just finished an unreal meal at L'-Affaire Est Ketchup. Unpretentious, low-key, small quaint place for those who appreciate food over fancy white table cloths. Expect a small kitchen feel with flavor combinations that are unique and top chef quality. Rich with foie and buttery dishes. Will be back!!!

We had such a great time eating at L'Affaire Est Ketchup! The selection was a little limited but this does not hamper the dining experience whatsoever. The staff are very helpful and quick to serve the delicious food. The only negative experience while dining was that it got quite smoky when the chefs were preparing food in the kitchen; fans...

In the last couple years I have had the good fortune to eat in some really nice restaurants in Shanghai, Sydney, Hong Kong, and Singapore, but not sure if I ever made it to one quite as unique. If you are going to be in QC....you have to see this place...but get a reservation, they only have 8 tables! The... More
