Rcommendations for restaurants in Quebec City, and food related tourism in the Charlevoix. (La Malbaie)

Two couples from the GTA visiting Quebec City for one night in July on the way to the Charlevoix region. Looking for recommendations for dining in Quebec City. We will be staying close to the old town in Quebec and have a car. Something off the tourist track if possible. Good, interesting, local fare, regional cooking. Is there anything like Pied du Cochon for example?
Secondly, looking for advice or recomendations for culinary - related activities or sites near La Malbaie. Artisan producers, wineries, restaurants etc.

  1. I heartily recommend one of my favorites in QC, which is Le Moine Echanson.

    1. On your way back, you should definitely stop in St-Urbain (just besides Baie-Saint-Paul) at La Ferme Basque for some great duck products. You can also visit the farm, learn about the way they raise their ducks, etc. There's also an emu farm on the same road, which could be interesting.

      1. Cafe du Clocher Penche, perhaps. There are a lot of threads about dining in Quebec City here - check them, and you should find what you're looking for.
