We walked here from the old city and we're glad that we did. The atmosphere was casual and friendly and the dinner was excellent, we were not looking for white table cloth. We started with the salmon tartare, which has tobiko mixed in for a little crunch and was great. We then had the beef cheek and elk steak both... More

Our dinner last night was incredible. Our server was delightful and made wonderful recommendations. We started with the cheese tray and bread and butter. My cousin ordered a burger with homemade fries -- perfectly crunchy and soft fries and a tasty burger. I had the elk flank steak with vegetables -- I wanted to lick the plate clean! It was... More

Just had dinner here and it was great. We had elk steak, duck pot pie and some appetizers and they were very good. My son said it was the best steak he'd ever had. We tried 3 desserts which were perfect. The maple creme brûlée was to die for. Waitstaff was perfect!

We took our Mothers here on Boxing Day for dinner...and are we ever happy we did! We shared the Calimari (perfectly cooked...not greasy!), a cheese board (great variety) and I got the Duo of Foie Gras (1st picture), which is one of the most delicious plates I've ever had! For our main courses, we had the Cod with Quinoa and... More

Had lunch at Le Hobbit today. The food was very impressive. Definitely rates at the high end for flavour and execution. The service was great as well, very attentive with refilling the water, and we didn't have to wait long for placing our orders or to received our orders. The coffee is the best we have tasted on our trip... More

After driving all day to get to Quebec City, we went to this little cafe on the recommendation of the concierge at the Marriott. We weren't expecting a great meal, but that is what we got. Homemade Foie Gras, Elk steaks, Bison, lots of great local greens and veggies, and, surprisingly, some good Canadian wines, offered by one of the... More

We were visiting from Toronto. Honestly the food, service and ambiance were stellar. Small cozy spot couldn't have asked for a better evening thank you. Reccomend the Elk Steak and this ginger cocktail that they had - top notch!

We went to this place several times and we appreciate the cozy atmosphere, the cuisine, the service and the music (music from Québec). On my last visit, I have appreciate the service (the waiter proposed excellent wine matching with our dishes), the menu (all guests enjoyed their meal, personnally, the fish of the day (Icelandic Cod) was excellent and well...
