This well-established French restaurant in the Old City has won several awards for its simply exquisite cuisine. The charming dining room at Saint-Amour features stone walls, flowers, and mirrors refined, yet romantic. It specializes in seafood like swordfish with sweet pimento in a cream sauce, game like grilled caribou with poached pear and cedar jelly, lamb dishes like rack of lamb in a fine herb and cheese crust, and Quebec duck foie gras. Desserts are spectacular, and the wine list features a 1928 Sauternes Chateau La Tour.
Aux Anciens Canadiens is a well-known restaurant located in the beautiful Maison Jacquet, a 1675 building that was once home to novelist Philippe-Aubert de Gaspé. His novel gives its name to the restaurant. The table d'hôte offers an entrée, soup, choice of main course, desert and coffee or teas. Most of the cuisine is Quebecois, that is the local French-Canadian cuisine, which is distinctively different from French fare.
