29 Essential Quebec City Restaurants

Where to eat tori paitan ramen, Alsatian flammkuchen, and some incredibly crispy fish and chips in the province’s capital city

View as Map

Montreal might have a stronger reputation as Quebec’s culinary hub (its much larger population helps that along), but the province’s capital is not to be overlooked. The chefs, brewers, and pastry chefs behind the TK places that appear on this map have helped build a vibrant dining scene, serving up plates spotlighting local produce and traditional Québécois cuisine that goes well beyond the old staples of tourtière or pouding chômeur. Others go beyond Quebec’s borders entirely, bringing great ramen, pizza, and Portuguese chicken, to name a few.

Well-known chef Daniel Vezina and his family have opened a taqueria in Quebec’s Old Port. Located on the Saint-André pier, next to the Bassin Louise swimming area, the Vezina family serves tacos, ceviche, and quesadillas created exclusively from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Chez Rioux & Pettigrew

Copy Link

Set in a former general store founded in 1860 of the same name, Rioux & Pettigrew is rooted in the history of Quebec City’s antique district of rue Saint-Paul. Once inside, the brick walls, crackling wood floors, and vintage gramophone make diners feel like they’re travelling in time, but chef Dominique Jacques brings a conversely modern take to the food. Brunch is a must, especially with a side of homemade boudin.

Louise Taverne & Bar à Vin

Copy Link

Louise is everything I love about a Parisian brasserie, plus some super friendly service. A little badass, it’s serving traditional French dishes with a modern twist — a je ne sais quoi that makes the food all too delicious — in a sumptuous space. Do not miss its titillating fish and chips alongside snappy matchstick fries; it’s the best quality-to-price option on the menu. Meanwhile, the steak tartare is served with a TikTok trend, the infamous sugar-cued egg yolk.

Quebec City’s only vegan restaurant, Le Don, is stylish, decorated with local artist Berko’s street-style graphics and chic, velvety banquettes. You won't miss the meat with chef Anne-Marie Grenier’s seasonally inspired dishes, heartwarming soups, and finger-licking desserts.

Honō Ramen

Opt for the tori paitan, with an especially rich and comforting chicken broth.

Bistro hortus

Nestled in a very touristic area of Old Quebec, Hortus takes a sustainable approach to food where every ingredient is traceable, and 90 percent of it is certified organic. The rooftop garden and beehives add romance to the setting and beauty to each dish crafted by French chef Stephane Roth.

Catherine Méra Pâtisserie

Copy Link

Celebrated by Baie-St-Paul locals, pastry artist Catherine Mera opened her first Quebec City location this spring.

La Korrigane

Copy Link

La Korrigane brews some of Canada’s best artisanal beers, focusing on a single source: handpicked ingredients from Quebec’s boreal forests. Owner Catherine Dionne-Foster and head brewer Jean-Sebastien Côté create accessible beer styles that are unfiltered, unpasteurized and contain no chemicals, preservatives, or artificial flavours. The same can be said about their pub grub. A lovely, semi-enclaved summer garden terrace stands out amidst greyish Saint-Roch.

Restaurant Wong

Copy Link

At Wong, the broths are made from scratch, dumplings are hand-crafted, and the rice is always stir-fried in a wok. But what truly makes this historic dining establishment stand out from the crowd is chef and owner Steven Wong’s ability to showcase his Asian roots with flair in dishes featuring unexpected ingredients like mussels and burrata. Among the staples is a generously flavoured beef and tomato sautée.

Tora-Ya Ramen

Walk into Tora-Ya, and you’ll be greeted with a loud and smiling ‘’irasshaimase,“ along with the tantalizing smell of slow-simmering broths cooked from chef and owner Miyano Sakai’s family recipes.

No reservations, but every menu option is available for takeout.

Champlain

Ninety seconds is all it takes to cook a pie in Nina’s 900-degree Fahrenheit wood-fired ovens tamed by owners Penelope Lachapelle and Lucie Nadeau, the undisputed queens of wood-fired Neapolitan pies in Quebec City. Crafted from fine ingredients selected by chef Veronique Schinck in Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Alex Gallant in Saint-Roch, their pizzas are simple and satisfying.

Handyman Jonathan Marcoux and baker François Borderon have joined forces to create a sandwich revolution in Saint-Sauveur. The Franky Johnny counter assembles generous and comforting creations stuffed with seasonal ingredients lathered in sexy, sexy sauces.

Copy Link

Beloved veggie-centric Le Renard et La Chouette has moved to a new location in St-Sauveur, in the Hôtel du Nord building. In the process, chefs and owners Thanya Goyette and Louis Bouchard-Trudeau have tripled their creative space, brightened their dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows, installed a pizza oven, and impressively built an urban cheese factory next to their kitchen. Every week, the Laiterie Urbaine transforms milk sourced from a producer in the Beauce region into curds, cream cheese, aged logs, etc. The famous Alsatian-inspired flammkuchen is now a star on the menu, with (almost) every ingredient made in-house.

Festive and fun, Tumi’s cuisine transports you to the heart of the culinary traditions of Lima, Peru. This new spot in Saint-Sauveur opened in the former premises of the Renard and La Chouette and features an inviting yet intimate terrasse overlooking the park.

Diner Saint-Sauveur

Copy Link

This retro-styled, kitschy, eclectic diner with faux-leather banquettes and bright neon colours brings a vibrant Québécois spin to Southern soul food. The menu is somewhere between that of a neighbourhood café and a greasy spoon: Expect sweet and spicy chicken with waffles, foie gras shepherd’s pie, and incredibly crispy fish and chips.

Battuto stands out in Quebec City’s landscape for its minimalist, refined approach to Italian cuisine. Owners Guillaume Saint-Pierre, Paul Croteau, and Pascal Bussières are a young, dynamic and modest group of friends taking a neo-bistro approach to classic, French-inspired Italian dishes.

Bleu Marine

Opened in 2019 in the former Le Moine Échanson, a precursor to the natural wine movement in la Belle Province, Bleu Marine excels in wine pairings.

Copy Link

Simple and affordable, Buvette Scott is an underground wine bar with a neo-bistro soul serving wine by the glass and spinning vinyl all night. Located at the bottom of rue Scott, the delicious and affordable fare is inspired by local ingredients and is led by seasonal produce, so no dish stays on chef-owner Jean-Philippe Lessard’s menu for more than a week. Buvette Scott’s minuscule little brother, Sardines, is also worth checking out for its farmhouse cheese, canned sardines, and an atmosphere that embodies the easy-going Portuguese way of life.

Restaurant Alentours

Copy Link

Chef Tim Morooney takes sustainability to heart at his restaurant, Alentours in Saint-Sauveur. Everything cooked and served in this elegant yet accessible establishment is sourced within a 150 km radius. Milk, yeast, and salt are the only exceptions. Organic waste is composted, and the entire business runs on hydroelectric energy. The menu changes every other week, and the monthly taco evenings are a must.

Poulet Portugais

Copy Link

Portuguese chicken cooked on the charcoal grill by chef and owner Stoyan Napoleonov. This Saint-Jean-Baptiste neighbourhood favourite offers one of the best time-quality-price ratios in Quebec City. A few tips: Order your chicken with the homemade piri-piri sauce on the side; that way, the skin gets extra crispy, and do both the Bulgarian-inspired coleslaw and the fries.

Verre Pickl’

Copy Link

Small spaces often make for memorable experiences — Verre Pickl’ is a case in point. Sandwiches by day, French-Mexican bistro by night, this Maguire favourite brings a real savoir-faire to the table.
