Aux Anciens Canadiens is located in one of the grandest houses in old Quebec—it was first built in 1675 as Maison Jacquet. The restaurant is full of character, since much of the house was kept in its former state (the decorative wainscotting is original). Anything that's new is inspired by the building's history, like the caramel-colored recessed cupboards. The name of the restaurant comes from a book by author Philippe-Aubert de Gaspé, who resided here from 1815 to 1824. The service is fantastic, friendly, and thoughtful, while the menu is traditional but beautifully executed. Try the smoked-bison parmesan fondue or the wild caribou served with a confit of carrots.
