Hello,

We, family with a teen, will be in Quebec City mid-August on Tuesday – Thursday and looking for a good restaurants for lunch and diner around Hotel Clarendon that are not too expensive.

Also, we will be spending Thursday - Saturday in Montreal. We will be staying at Le Nouvel Hotel and greatly appreciate same type of recommendations.

Thank you.

    On Rue Des Ursulines in Quebec City is a place called Le Petit Quartier Latin. They have a nice back terrasse and good salads and light lunches.

      Hi,
      The right name is Le petit coin latin on Ste-Ursule's street... Yes there is a rue des Ursulines but no restaurant on that street... a little bit confusing..

        As for Montreal, your hotel is near the Guy/Concordia area and "Chinatown 2," which has many cheap restaurants but nothing that necessarily screams Montreal. I understand if eating Chinese isn't high on your list of Montreal experiences. Board (and personal!) favourites include Cuisine Schezwan on Guy and Sherbrooke, Le Maison du Nord on St-Mathieu, and Qing Hua Dumplings on Lincoln. I also really like the Turkish restaurant, Avesta, on Ste-Catherine, west of Guy. You can check out this thread:

        To really enjoy the Montreal food scene, budget or otherwise, you'll have to leave your hotel's area and downtown all together. Head up St-Laurent for Schwartz's, turn onto Rachel for Romado's Portuguese Chicken (take it out and bring to Jeanne-Mance park for a picnic), continue down Rachel for poutine at La Banquise...

        Take a look at this thread and the ones it links to:

        Of course it all depends on what is "inexpensive" to you...

          Thank you foodinspace for Montreal recommendations. In Montreal we probably be using public transportation. Any other good places along major attractions would be good too.
