The Hobbit was our first mean in Quebec City and we were not disappointed. The menus were in French and English, which was very helpful for us English speakers! I was not familiar with many of the wines on the menu and our waitress was...More

We went for an early dinner the first day we were in Quebec. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff was friendly and helpful. The meal was fantastic. We had the Côté jardin, which was out of this world and the Côté cour burger that...More

Friendly bilingual waiters and waitresses. The menu has wide selection for breakfast and brunch and the food is professionally prepped and presented. Very good service and food that is worth the trip. The only complaint we had is that both lavatories were out of order...More

Located on Rue St. Jean, the area is not as touristy. This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and we were glad we went. The food was great and different than the usual - my hubby had bison cheek risotto, which he loved! I had...More

Despite positive reviews in both Trip Advisor and The Lonely Planet guide, I'd have to say this was a less than an enjoyable experience. We started with a 5 minute wait, no problem - albeit my dining companies speaking fluent Quebecois, our server insisted on...More

Don't bother. Save your money (it's not cheap) and your equanimity and stay at home. Or better still walk some metres down the road for extraordinarily good food and genuinely warm service at Le Billig. The food at Hobbt Bistro started off slightly better than...More
