Wonderful large, covered patio and cosy inside. Food was wine was delicious, their tartare particularly so. Don’t miss it if you come to Quebec City. Locals lunch there. Very pleasant summer lunch with a perfect group of cocktails. We ate indoors but many enjoyed the shady patio on the car-free street.

My wife and I had a “scaldingly” wonderful meal at the bar (sorry for the bad pun), with the dishes and the conversation flowing freely and deliciously. If you are visiting Vieux Quebec City, I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had the Tartar Trio, which was fun. The oysters were fresh and delish (amusing side note—I apparently need to practice enunciating “douze”). My wife had the duck confit, which was well cooked and truly filling as duck should be. But the surprise was the scallops, which I ordered on recommendation. It was perfectly cooked, and the flavors and the ingredients perfectly brought out the natural sweetness of the meat. Finally, we chose the Assiette gourmande for dessert, and that was a fun riot of flavors.Nota bene, make a reservation.With wine, drinks and tip, our bill came to 217 CAD—well worth it.Casual dressing is fine.

Unfortunately, we were left disappointed with our overall experience at L'Échaudé. They don't seem to take Covid restrictions seriously. Many of the wait staff were only wearing a face visor, without a mask. Considering they are standing above their patrons who are sitting at their table, this makes the visor useless in protecting us. We saw them allow clients to enter the restaurant without masks on, only telling them to pull their jackets in front of their mouths. We also saw a man head to the washroom with no mask on; on his way, he passed two staff members and no one addresses the issue with him. Tables were definitely not a full 2m apart. We were not the only patrons to notice this problematic lack of respect for safety protocols. They seemed to be either very busy or understaffed. Plates were slow to arrive, and when they did, there was a general lack of seasoning. A few flakes of finishing salt would have helped every single dish. I think the staff tries their best, but without efficient management and CLEAR and UNEQUIVOCAL adhesion to Covid safety regulations, it all ends up feeling mediocre.
