First time in Quebec city

Helen Oct 14, 2008 06:41 AM

I'll be staying from this coming Sunday for three days. I'm looking for reasonable priced (I'm a senior!) good restaurants for dinner.

Any suggestions?

    We've never been to Quebec and I'm looking forward to it - just thought someone may be able to recommend a good bistro.

    As much as I'd like to go, Toast would be too expensive for me.

        Thank you so much, exactly what I was looking for. I had gone on some Quebec forums but they were very basic. Really appreciate the thought.

          We enjoyed fresh brioche, cinnamon buns and other such pastries plus coffee at bistro Tatum. On rue St. Jean, in the upper old city.

          Very reasonable and way better than the hotel breakfasts.
          They do lunches as well.

      Chez Temporel has a WORLD's BEST croissant. not sure how late they are open, but it's a nice spot for an inexpensive meal, plus their fabulous croissants.

        Thank you all for your great QC suggestions. I'm heading up there right after Xmas, to spend the rest of the year enjoying great French food and wine. I've written down all the recommendations from the board and look forward to trying as much as i can.
