We happened on this Bistro as we were walking by looking for a place to eat. The food was excellent and the service was really great. We were able to get a table without a reservation, but I think we just got lucky. It is fairly small and we happened to get the last table. Our waiter was awesome and... More

We tried this spot after walking past it a number of times and seeing its reviews on TripAdvisor. The service was very good, but the restaurant was chaotic the night we went because of a few families with a number of children.

Elk Burger, Poutine, Salad, and a Maple Cake dessert with a side fresh thick cream to pour over top.... More

I think I counted 8 tables….so, it is very charming and intimate with very personal service. Reservations highly recommended because of the size or go at an off-peak time. The menu had a nice mix of French and casual type food ~ so, something for everyone. Nice attention to detail. Everyone enjoyed their meal here, and would return.

My daughter and I had dinner at Bistro Sous le Fort on our recent trip to Quebec and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself is located in lower town which was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the ambience inside the restaurant was relaxed and cozy; a quaint and inviting space. Our waiter was very personable and the food was... More

The food here was okay. It was not the best food I've ever had, but definitely not the worst. If you are not a picky eater you will be fine. The atmosphere is what I recommend going for, as well as the service. We had Sandra and she could not have been more helpful!

Walking through the Christmas decorated streets you get hungry so we picked this place, ordered beef burgers , if you like well done that would be ideal choice, unfortunately for my husband that was ok, beef patty is dry so if you like something more juicy you have to go with something different, but it's really cozy romantic place

We happened in while walking around the old city. What a friendly, delicious find. Our waitress was knowledgeable and personable. We had a wonderful dinner, and the maple cake dessert was to die for. We were treated like we had been there a hundred times before--very enjoyable meal in the center of what has to be one of the most... More
