255 Rue Saint-Paul, Old Port
One of Quebec City’s more formal restaurants, Légende is worth the splurge for the chef’s six-course tasting menu. While you’re at it, spring for the wine pairing, which is beautifully curated by the sommelier and makes the whole affair next-level. Dishes are constantly changing depending on what’s freshest and in season but may include smoked Arctic char, lobster ravioli, and seared venison. The eclectic décor includes abstract paintings from local artists hanging along the exposed-brick walls.

117 Rue Dalhousie, Old Port
The A-frame structure, the wheelbarrows transformed into light fixtures, the herb planters, and tons of natural light make this casual grab-and-go restaurant in the Old Port neighborhood feel like a greenhouse.
