Friendly, happy staff and good service. Good value lunch menu, interesting choices, nice presentation, satisfying portions. We had a pleasant lunch on the terrasse, happy with our choices of duck confit served with salad and an interesting and delicious seafood sausage, served with baby shrimp, rice and salad. We started with a small cod appetizer and ended with a very homey dessert. Bypassed the wine list for a glass of the featured red, fairly priced at $7 a glass. All was well with the world. Definitely a place we'd go.back to. Frequented by locals and tourists...and the people watching is good, too.

We were there for a meal one rainy night in April. The place is very warm and inviting with very good food. But what stands out for me the most and which can make an outing enjoyable or not is the wait staff, and in this case Raphael is outstanding. He seems to be able to make everyone feel at home with his charming and entertaining personality. Would definitely come back if I get a chance to return to Quebec City.

Given the rating this restaurant had I was expecting a lot more. Very friendly staff, but service was slow. Food was okay, but not great. Would not be my first or even second choice.

We had a lovely evening at the Bistro Sous le Fort having been welcomed in by Raphael who saw us reading the menu outside and told us to come in an check with 'all the happy people' how good the food was. I'd already read the reviews, so I knew Raphael was a bit of a character. He was right. There was a great ambiance in the place. Everyone seemed to be enjoying what they were eating and the staff managed that fine balance between being there for you when you needed them and ensuring you had enough space. Really good place. Excellent food. We both had the salmon. Would go there again.

We had a wonderful meal at this cafe. The wait staff was very friendly and made us laugh many times throughout the meal. The restaurant is pleasant, and nicely decorated. Try the escargot appetizer. The snails are in a brown sauce with a hint of onion/shallots? We had the chicken and Brie that was very tender and moist, a nicely prepared duck and pasta.
We finished off the meal with a nice apple tart.
It was one of the better meals in Quebec, and we plan on going back before we leave the city. It was better than the meal we had at the Fontenac!
