Restaurant La Planque
Restaurant La Planque, Lyra

The food scene in Limoilou is hot hot hot! Many of the city’s young chefs have set up shop on 3e Avenue and with all the tasty options, the locals have been flocking there in droves.

    ARVI

    Where conventions of the restaurant experience are shuffled. A fixed-price menu where the kitchen staff prepare your meal and then serve you at the table. It’s a human experience where local products shine. You’ll have to buy a ticket online and pay your meal in advance for a reserved seat, but you can also walk in without a reservation or call to book your place.

    La Planque

    Recently redesigned and transformed into a more contemporary decor where velvet meets leather, La Planque is a little more adult. Carefully orchestrated dishes where colour and texture unite to create beautiful conversation pieces. Sit in the bar section where exclusive cocktails are proposed or at the kitchen counter for the ultimate experience.  And please order bread, a magnificent pumpkin sourdough made by local baker François Borderon.

    Cendrillon

    The ideal destination for happy hour, alone at the bar or at the circular table with friends. The ribs are succulent and house-cured meats delicious. Don't miss the barrel-aged sauces, even if it's just a dot on an oyster.

    Jalisco Tacos

    This well-kept secret in Limoilou is the place to go for tacos in Québec City. The creations are all authentically Mexican and incredibly tasty. I highly recommend the mouthwatering pozole and the birria tacos.

    Maude Épicerie Laboratoire Culinaire

    Chef Maude Desroches is breathing new life into the Maizerets sector of Limoilou. Maude Épicerie Laboratoire Culinaire is one of the few spots in the area where you can pick up meat, fruit, and vegetables from local farms. In the kitchen, Desroches uses those fresh local ingredients to showcase her skills. One of the best brunch spots in town.
