Québec city guide

La Korrigane

For the local brews

When early-evening drinks are in order, head to La Korrigane for a rotating selection of craft beer on a handful of taps. Among the unique brews on offer are the Emily Carter, made with Lac-Saint-Jean blueberries, and the full-bodied Urban Honey, produced from local rooftop bee farms.

Kraken Cru

For the exceptional seafood

Don’t leave Quebec City without having dinner at this oyster and seafood bar, named one of Canada’s Best New Restaurants by Air Canada <i>enRoute</i> magazine in 2016. Slurp east-coast bivalves, like fatty Tatamagouches and Malpeques, washed down with fine-bubbled Crémant de Bourgogne; then move on to salt-cured mackerel with spicy horseradish, arugula and radishes. With only a dozen stools around the bar and six more at a high counter, this Saint-Sauveur find is intimate and prone to singalongs when French singer Jacques Dutronc comes on the stereo.

Nektar Caféologue

For the coffee

After a morning of sightseeing, head to this café in the heart of bustling Saint-Roch for an afternoon java jolt. Established in 2009, Nektar Caféologue is credited for popularizing coffee culture in the city with a constantly rotating selection of sustainable roasts from around the world. Ask the staff about the daily <i>découverte</i> beans, selected for their superior aromas and terroirs, or order a shot of Detour Dark Espresso, a rich and creamy blend with notes of dark chocolate, roasted nuts and molasses.

Le Bouchon du Pied Bleu

For the French bistro experience

Husband-and-wife team Louis Bouchard Trudeau and Thania Goyette bring the spirit of the Lyonnais <i>bouchon</i> – a convivial dining phenomenon driven by pork and Beaujolais, boisterous laughter and red-checkered napkins – to the quartier Saint-Sauveur. Dinner begins with a flight of a half-dozen-plus simple but imaginative salads – serve yourself from large bowls – and continues with hearty cocottes of rabbit confit that pair perfectly with a stubby glass of Régnié. Desserts from the sweets table are both self-serve and sublime.

Battuto

For the handmade pasta

Reservations are a must at this unfussy trattoria. La Planque’s Guillaume St-Pierre is on sauce-and-charcuterie duty, with organic takes on Italian staples like coppa and mortadella, while Paul Croteau turns out handmade pasta and sommelier Pascal Bussières serves up affordable private-import wines.

Nénuphar

For the natural wine

A “secret bar” is usually not all that secret. Not so with Nénuphar, which is truly, genuinely hidden. Track it down, behind a door marked SALLE DES MACHINES, inside a family-friendly bowling alley, underneath a community centre where an amateur wrestling match is happening. Inside, it’s like a delightful basement playroom in the Golden Girls’ Miami house. There are elementary-classroom globes lining an indoor staircase, and the bathroom is hand-painted to look like you’re freshening up inside a piece of Delft pottery. Ask the sommelier to walk you through the natural-wine list, and order the local cheese plate with honey. Just like Quebec City, Nénuphar is weird, welcoming and disarmingly charming.

Chez Rioux & Pettigrew

For the secret tasting menu

Quai 19 is reinventing itself in homage to the locale’s historic wholesale-grocer occupant. The light-filled space has a 19th-century marketplace vibe and a menu that reads like a map of local farms. Blind-taste <i>Les Chefs!</i> victor Dominic Jacques’ take on seasonal market fare with “la table de Pettigrew."

Arvi

For the five-course vegetarian tasting menu

This is dinner theatre. (It’s also the #1 spot on the 2019 Canada’s Best New Restaurants Top 10 list.) Watch three chefs-slash-sommeliers cook, then serve you tableside with an earnest discussion about the contents of your plate and glass. At the helm is kick-ass French-born chef Julien Masia, who is cooking Michelin-star-worthy dinner in the round in this industrial Limoilou boîte. A shimmering biodynamic gamay from Beaujolais winemaker Michel Guignier pairs with a recently wriggling Gaspésie lobster, lovage and rhubarb. And the five-course vegetarian tasting menu is a must for all, with gems like morels bathed in Quebec amaretto hollandaise and a creamy, soft-yolk egg with crispy lacto-fermented Jerusalem artichoke.

Coopérative Méduse

For the multidisciplinary arts

Perched atop Côte d’Abraham, Coopérative Méduse brings together a total of 10 non-profit artistic and community organizations. It focuses on visual and media arts, photography and film and offers artist residencies, exhibits, film screenings, shows and live performances. In February, it also hosts the Mois Multi, one of the most innovative multidisciplinary events on the Quebec arts scene.

Wendake

For the First Nations heritage

Step inside a traditional longhouse to learn about the myths and legends of the Huron-Wendat people or attend a powwow to experience First Nations rituals and traditions. Treat yourself to a night at the chic Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations, a four-star boutique hotel inspired by longhouses. Visit the adjacent Huron-Wendat Museum; then indulge in First Nations cuisine at La Traite with dishes like Cerf de Boileau – deer served with fresh blueberries flavoured with balsam fir.

Strøm Spa Nordique

For the Scandinavian experience

Set on the banks of the St. Lawrence River near Old Quebec, Strøm delights with its striking Scandinavian architecture and a spa experience that alternates between hot and cold treatments, followed by a period of rest. Relax your muscles in the eucalyptus steam bath or the outdoor whirlpool before plunging into the cold bath, complete with icy waterfall. Then forget about gravity in the Epsom-salt flotation bath.

Hôtel le Germain Québec

For the views

Tucked away in the Old Port, this historic property occupies the city’s first skyscraper – the eight-storey Dominion Fish & Fruit Limited building – as well as a former bank. Some of the original design elements, like the vault doors and woodwork, have been preserved. Kick-start your day with postcard views of the St. Lawrence River from your suite’s immense windows; then head down to the lobby for a pick-me-up at the complimentary cappuccino bar.

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

For a family-friendly vacation

Following a $75-million facelift, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac has retained its status as Canada’s Grande Dame of hotels. The Fairmont Gold treatment ensures you a room near the top of the main tower and includes services, such as breakfast and cocktail-hour canapés. For family getaways, the hotel offers child-size bathrobes, a babysitter service and discounted meals for children. Plus, the indoor pool promises to keep the kids busy year-round.

Hôtel 71

For the sheer luxury

This sleek, modern haven, hidden behind a historic neoclassical exterior, is tucked away in the heart of Old Quebec. Drift off on the ultrasoft mattress made by local company Matelas Confort, and don’t lose sleep over going home to your own bed: You can purchase a mattress through the hotel. At happy hour, raise a glass of private-import wine, available by the glass at the self-serve wine bar.

Auberge Saint-Antoine

For the historical artifacts

Construction of this Relais & Châteaux inn, which sprawls over three original riverside buildings, uncovered three centuries worth of artifacts. The result is an innovative hotel-museum concept, where more than 700 priceless historical finds are on display. Tour the property’s museum-quality installations, from lighted dioramas to relics of French and English rule (Cannonballs, snuff boxes and dinner plates).

Le Monastère des Augustines

For a rejuvenating stay

Built in the 1600s, the city’s first monastery/hospital is now a 65-room boutique hotel with a focus on holistic healing programs and workshops. Guests can choose from contemporary rooms with modern furniture and private bathrooms or get the complete cloister treatment in one of the authentic rooms, complete with single beds, antique furniture and shared bathrooms. Don’t miss the on-site restaurant’s Vitality breakfasts, where diners are asked to eat in silence as a tribute to the Sisters’ practice of contemplation.
