      We are staying at Marriott at 850 Place D'youville and are interested in history, art, architecture, museums, food, interesting local shopping (as opposed to shopping to be found all over), food, walking tours and general sightseeing.

    2. Folks, please keep the suggestions food-related, as general tourist activities are off-topic for Chowhound. Thanks!

        No problem, please robert go on trip advisor for all the other questions and I will be back to you for food today.

      2. Le Pain Beni is still closed for rennovations. Le Cafe du Monde is a tourist trap and you can do much better food-wise imho. It's not necessarily bad, but I don't see the appeal either with so many other AMAZING foodie options in the city. It's one of those places that's become so intertwined with QC tourism and popular in name recognition that it's really all it has going for it these days. If you just want a steak-frites or something, I'm sure you can do better or just as well walking into just about any restaurant in the old city. See my review of our Quebec City experience further down the page for more suggestions. I can offer recommendations depending on yoru budget. Also Le Lapin Sautee in my opinion is more of a lunch resto than dinner place, but I'm sure can still be just as enjoyable.
