Restaurant 1640, Québec, Canada

IMG_45891640 is a lovely restaurant in the old town, just opposite to the Frontenac castle, which can offer a nice view if you seat next to the windows. I guess they might have a terrasse in the summer.

I went there twice for breakfast during my stay in Québec. The place is very cosy with a nice and sober decoration. The staff is super friendly and the breakfast menu quite appealling. I tried their brunch plate with scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, potatoes, toasts and a cupcake. Really really tasty. The 2nd time, I had almost the same thing but in smaller size.

La Banquise, Montréal, Canada

IMG_4695When in Québec, you do have to try the famous poutine. I mean, fries, gravy, cheese, it sounds amazing! 🙂 If you can try only one place, go to La Banquise. I read it’s the best poutine in town so I decided to went there for a lunch. I tried the T-Rex poutine with minced beef, hot dog sausage, peperoni and bacon. It was super good but of course super heavy. The staff is super friendly, a real nice place.

They also do burgers and breakfast, but I didn’t have time to go back.

Frites alors, Montréal, Canada

IMG_4823Frites alors is a Québec Belgian fries chain and has several locations in Montréal. I went twice during my stay.

I passed by the one on Rue Rachel while looking for a place to have lunch and remembered I saw this name on a top 5 of the best poutines in Montréal, so I decided to give it a try. The staff was very friendly and the menu hard to choose from I had the Berger Burger (with goat cheese) and a small poutine. It was very tasty!

On my last day, for my last lunch, I went to the one on Rue Saint-Denis to get my last poutine, I had the one with smoked meat. It was also very good and the staff super friendly.

Les 3 Brasseurs (Saint-Denis), Montréal, Canada

IMG_4877Les 3 Brasseurs is a famous chain of restaurants in France and are also in Canada, with slight differences. It’s mostly known for their beer and specialities from Northern/Eastern France and Belgium.

I went to the one on Rue Saint-Denis with some friends and had a nice dinner. I have to say that I 1st wanted to have a Flammkuchen, but when I looked closer at the menu I was kinda disappointed, sorry but the ones they offer are really weird, they don’t even have the classical real Alsatian one with just cream, onions and lardons. Some of my friends had them, but they serve them uncut and on normal plate, a real Flamm’ is served cut and on a wooden plate. I grew up close to Alsace and leave in Germany (where it’s popular and you can find good ones), so I tend to be a bit of a Flammkuchen extremist ^^

Apart from that, I was quite happy with my food, nice garlic cheese bread and tasty giant sausages, maybe a bit more sauerkraut could be nice. Everyone was happy with their beer and food. We went there for a bachelorette party and they offered the dessert to the bride to be.

The atmosphere is really nice and the staff super friendly, so a positive experience.

Corso 1471, Montréal, Canada

IMG_4863Corso 1471 is a restaurant located in downtown Montréal, close to McGill university. I had a lovely dinner there with a friend while visiting Montréal.

The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere cosy. The menu is very appealling and not too expensive. I enjoyed a very nice steak (cooked as wished) and my friend liked his mussels. For dessert, we had profiteroles, one of my favorite desserts, it was very nice.
A good adress for a nice dinner in downtown Montréal.

La Bûche, Québec, Canada

IMG_4578As I was walking around Québec I passed by the restaurant La Bûche and saw a sign announcing hockey nights, I wanted to watch the Habs game the same night so I had a look at the menu that looked interesting and came back later for dinner.

The staff is extremely friendly, the place is really cute, very nice place. The menu is very appetizing, kinda hard to choose from. I loved their maple mojito. I went twice there, I tried the tourtière and the poutine (with an enormous slice of bacon), it was very tasty, couldn’t try the desserts though, the mains got me full.

Pub d’Orsay, Québec, Canada

IMG_4045I arrived in the afternoon in Québec city and was starving, but lots of places were already closed after lunch time. I ended up at the restaurant Pub d’Orsay. It was empty at 15:00 but I passed by a couple of times later and it seemed to be full all the time.

The staff was friendly, the service quite quick. I had a very tasty steak, cooked as I wished. I also had a very nice cocktail. Very nice experience. I guess they might show the hockey games too since the Québec sport channel was on when I was there.
