Le Clocher Penché

Located on the vibrant St. Joseph Street, the Clocher Penché has been open since 1995! It is known for the rigour in the preparation of its dishes. On the menu, you will find excellent local products judiciously chosen by the owners from surrounding farms. Their cuisine is fresh and thoughtful, with a menu that changes often, although some of the staple classics always remain. Le Clocher Penché offers something for every flavour and budget. We really like this address, whose charming and friendly atmosphere mirrors the owners. Photo Clocher Penché

Chez Boulay-bistro boréal

Chez Boulay is also one of our favourite restaurants in Quebec City, whether it’s for brunch, lunch or a delicious dinner. Opened in 2010 by Jean-Luc Boulay and Arnaud Marchand, this boreal-style bistro, that is to say a place offering local cuisine inspired by northern products, offers a menu that changes frequently, but whose quality is always at its best. The dishes are delicious and original; 85% of them are made with local ingredients, ensuring exquisite discoveries prepared with care. An excellent and charming address to discover in the national capital. Photo Chez Boulay

Le Pied Bleu

Located on Saint-Vallier Street West in Quebec City, the Pied Bleu is a charming local bistro that advocates simplicity, conviviality and authenticity; you really feel at home here! This warm address offers a menu that focuses on charcuterie from the Lyon region in France. Here, you’ll enjoy the charcuterie platters, but also the delicious black pudding, the star of the menu for which the restaurant was awarded. For more adventurous choices, Le Pied Bleu specializes in offal: kidney, liver and brain are to be tried! Photo Le Pied Bleu

181 Rue Saint-Vallier Ouest

L’Affaire est Ketchup

L’Affaire est Ketchup is a friendly address that offers an excellent menu in a very warm atmosphere! The first project of Olivier Lescelleur St-Cyr, Benoît Fortin Lyonnais and François Jobin, the address has built an excellent reputation thanks to its succulent cuisine inspired by comfort food. The chef proposes an inspired menu that focuses on the beauty and quality of seasonal products, while drawing his ideas from the dishes he savoured during his childhood. The result is delicious, with simplicity and finesse. A favourite for this comforting and unpretentious address! Photo L’Affaire est Ketchup
