My husband and enjoyed an odd meal at Mistral while visiting Quebec City. The exterior sports a very Provencal type atmosphere, cute, lavender, yellow tablecloths with olives, hanging herbs, but the interior is more diner-ish. The chair seats were absolutely filthy, but once you are seated, well, you can forget about it. It took ten minutes for the wait staff to attend us after being seated, during which time we pondered fleeing as there were only three other occupied tables, but we stayed and the food was decent. Most other restaurants were full at that point. Our food was fine, served hot and tasting good, not excellent. I's asked to have my lamb served medium and it was clearly still alive so it had to be sent back. By the time it returned my husbands food was cold. The best part of the meal, however, was really the wait staff. The two who were in charge that evening were truly entertaining, although they by no means were trying to be. There was, apparently, some sort of issue in the kitchen with the cook and this was causing a spillover of frustration into the dining room. My husband and I were simply enjoying the wine, the meal and the activity. Head somewhere else if great food is important to you :)
