Accommodation at Hotel Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac *****
Situated in Old Quebec, this heritage property boasts views of the St. Lawrence River. On-site restaurants offer a variety of dining options, from classic to regional dishes. Montmorency National Park is 2 minutes’ drive away.
The elegant, European-style rooms of Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac offer a cable TV and a coffee maker. Ironing facilities and air conditioning are also included.
Guests of the Fairmont are welcome to enjoy the indoor pool, a hot tub and steam rooms. A fitness room, business center and concierge services are also available. Guests can enjoy a variety of treatments at the Spa du Château, the on-site spa.
The Notre Dame Cathedral is a 3-minute walk from Le Chateau Frontenac. The Citadel of Quebec is 500 m away.
Poutine is a must!
We recommend Chez Gaston. This St.-Roch hole in the wall is not fancy but the poutine is just perfect: crisp fries with crunch and curds with squeak, all doused in gravy.
If you are looking for more comfort, you could head to Poutineville.
All ingredients are customizable, but the house specialty replaces crushed potato chunks for fries and adds a pile of braised beef to Canada’s so-called “national dish.”
Then head to Rue of Strange Brew.
The ideal spot to taste the province’s best craft ciders and beers.
For apple-based tipples, visit Le Projet Spécialité Microbrasseries, a busy bar with an elegant interior. Try the Citron Sunrise from Les Vergers de la Colline — an appealingly tart, lemony cider — or the winelike rosé “ice cider” from La Face Cachée de la Pomme.
And if you are not tired yet we recommend spending the rest of the evening at Bar Les Yeux Bleus, a cavelike bar with (gentler) live music.
