Restaurants in Quebec City

When it comes to Quebec City restaurants, the French sensibilities that have influenced the city’s history and its architecture also stretch to its cuisine.

Chef Simon Cote-Tremblay’s Restaurant Pain Beni brings the Old World aesthetic of its Old Town location into its interior décor, serving a menu of locavore-friendly comfort food amid exposed brick and stone. Italian classics get a French twist at Bello Ristorante, where house favorites include pasta made from scratch and seasonal risotto creations. Diners can also enjoy a glass of house-made sangria al fresco on its spacious all-weather terrace, a feature of many of the best restaurants in Quebec City.

Additionally, outstanding restaurants in Quebec City can be found in its luxury hotels. Panache, the resident eatery in the upscale Auberge Saint Antoine Hotel, offers a menu of expertly prepared Canadian specialties prepared with locally sourced ingredients like Atlantic halibut and Quebec turnips. Its dining room features a rustic, barn-like décor. The revolving L’Astral, located on the 29th floor of the Loews Hotel Le Concorde, makes a 360-degree turn every hour, serving up fine dining with sweeping views on the side.
