L'Astral in Quebec City

I am planning to take my 2 teenagers to Quebec city for a weekend. I wanted to try the revolving restaurant at the top of the Loews hotel as a fun thing to do with them. Is it very expensive and is it any good? Is it better to go there for brunch?

Thanks for any hints...

    That is what I was afraid off. Thanks!

      Actually, a fun thing to do with the kids would also be to take the ferry to Lévis and go picnic there. There is a parc not too far from the port. You have a gorgeous view of the city. You could also go to Le Café du Monde in the Old Port and ask for a place on the terrace. Very cool view of the port and the river.

      Hum..My first reaction would be to tell you to simply AVOID the place. Very ordinary food and very expensive. But if you really got to go because of the kids, I suggest you go for brunch. You will have less of a "I just wasted so much money" feeling.
