    My first choice might be Le Moine Échanson : http://www.lemoineechanson.com/ (upper town but outside the walls). Not fancy french cuisine but definitely home french cuisine with a twist. Private importation wines, all organic.

    Le Clocher Penché dowtown is also very good. Bistro style : http://www.clocherpenche.ca/

    If your definition of french food is liberal i also recommand you L'Affaire est Ketchup. Good, friendly, no pretention, noisy, festif : http://laffaireestketchup.net/

        Seconding Le Moine Echanson. We ate there last year during Carnival. It was lovely!

        Expensive to Medium:
        - Laurie Raphael (solide all the time)
        - Initiale (For the next time)
        - La Fenouillière (To die for)
        - Panache (Delicious Brunch, only able to reserve for brunch)
        - Toast (Very good)

        - Le cafe du monde (just like a french bistro, alway full... My Favorite)
        - L'echaude (Delicious Brunch)
        - Aviatic (Not bad)

          Le feu sacré for steaks
          Le Pain Beni for bistronomy cuisine
          Cafe Sirocco for Tapas
