Forward The residence’s immediate neighborhood is home to several highly acclaimed restaurants, bistros and world class museum collections. Venturing a few more steps further away, all the many wonderful destinations within the UNESCO World Heritage Site await your curiosity.

In any event, there’s a lot to see and do in every season. Being so close to the Arctic Circle, the Summer Season’s daylight hours are languorously long; while the Winter Season’s daytime is notoriously short.

Within a slightly longer walk or RTC Route 21 bus ride, many more world class museum collections and dining experiences are awaiting you. Les Quebecquois are noted for thoroughly enjoying their public spaces; maybe it’s a European social tradition that has gained a foothold in the Americas, maybe it’s because the average Quebec home is smaller than what is now customary in the States ...maybe it’s just an outward “joie de vie” that permeates the Quebec lifestyle.

So, with the European tradition of dining late firmly entrenched, Summer Season dining destinations are typically in full-swing till late in the night. During the Winter Season, daylight fails around the 4:30-mark; forcing chandeliers and flickering candles to augment the crackling fireplaces.

The Quebec seasonal swings are vastly different in every sense, but each is completely enjoyable and enchanting in their own right. If it’s the Summer Season, join les Quebecquios at a sidewalk cafe and soak-in the gentle breezes and outstanding and wide variety dining venues. If it’s the Winter Season, simply bundle up and crunch your way to a neighborhood bistro for a cup of hot chocolate (or Cognac) beside the warmth of a fireplace. If it’s one of the “Shoulder Seasons”, slip-on a sweater or jacket and enjoy la Belle Ville de Quebec with the locals. FYI, in the European tradition, most local dining establishments are not eager to “turn over” their tables; your lingering enjoyment is most welcome.

So enjoy the dining experiences in a leisurely fashion. Often, you will have to ask for the check (le addition s’il vous plait) ...the check please.

Local Restaurants, Bistros & Pubs Quebec City is famous for a wide variety of dining experiences ...from traditional French Canadian cooking and European-styled contemporary restaurants to neighborhood cafes, bistros and specialty food dining venues. While the following list is certainly not definitive; it will give you an idea of what’s available just a few steps away, around the corner or within a strolling distance. Included are approximately 145 eating destinations all within walking distance from the residence (Upper Town, Lower Town and the immediately surrounding neighborhoods, or an easy ride on the RTC Route 21 bus. There’s even a McDonalds on rue Ste Jean ...if you must.
