Quebec City for the weekend, recs?

Hi all!

I'm going to be in Quebec City for Easter weekend with my girfriend. We are both mid 30's. We are looking for some recommendations for a couple of dinner's, and breakfast/brunch also.

We are staying at the Delta. We are coming from Toronto.

Any good dinner recommendations? Quebecois fare would be good? We don't like it TOO rowdy, but a somewhere with a good/unique atmosphere, or just somewhere fairly romantic for dinner and a decent bottle of wine? We will eat anything, so aren't scared of trying anything different or unusual. Entree's around $20 to $30 maybe?

And also any reasonably priced brunch within walking distance from the hotel (15 minutes or so away is ok)? A greasy spoon type place, or just somewhere with a good brunch!

Thanks in advance!

  1. I'm bumping my own thread as I'm guessing Quebec City questions don't get many responses?

    I've narrowed down a few options:

    Le Lapin Saute seem interesting for dinner?
    le moine echanson seems reasonably price?
    Le Cochon Dingue has some good reviews, but the website makes it looks like a really generic mass produce place.
    Le Echaude looks like a good brunch.
    Pain Beni, but I'm not usually a fan of a restuarant in a hotel, unless this is really good?
    and Le Clocher Penche.

    Any comments on any of these? I'm hoping these are pretty good places!

      Your comment about Cochon Dingue is pretty accurate. We ended up there one evening because Le Billig was closed. It was ok, but a fairly pedestrian experience. We returned to Le Billig the next night and had a wonderful meal. We also enjoyed the Hobbit Bistro on St. Jean, which is right down the hill from the Delta.

        I would guess the main reason you haven't gotten responses is because the subject has been covered many times in the past few months - if you do a search of this board, you will find several threads discussing all of the above-mentioned restaurants, as well as many others. Should answer all of your questions.
