About us

By combining freshness and creativity, the Bistro Hortus offers you a menu rich in local and organic products. For your greatest pleasure, chef Stéphane Roth presents a menu of the “Ferme à la Table” trend. With his unique cooking style, he puts the spotlight as much on meat and fish as on vegetables, always with a view to eco-responsible cuisine. An experience combining good food, good atmosphere and good prices awaits you!

Hortus is the proud owner of two green rooftop gardens located in the heart of Vieux-Québec, right above you! Our crops are quintessential part of your meal.

Our gardens will provide some of the fruits and vegetables used in our recipes. Production being limited due to space constraint, we work closely with Quebec farmers who grow organic produce.

 

OUR BEES

 

We also own multiple beehives placed onto large strawberry fields at l’ole-d’orleans, home of our Oh Bio partner. Tree beehives are located on the rooftop of Hotel du Vieux Quebec and greatly improve the pollination of our gardens.

 

The importance of bees to biodiversity 

Besides providing their beloved honey, bees are a fondamental part of every aspect linked to the ecosystem. Bees are the most important pollinators, close to 80%, therefore essential to flowering plants reproduction. They are also vital through food chain, considering that 35% of fruits and vegetables depend on pollination by insects

We planned a big food tour of all the restaurants based on reviews and menus all week. We were excited to try their brunch. As a foodie this was Disappointing mostly because of service. I wish we went somewhere else. Their menu is described as follows… at the door, on their website and the menu handed to you.

All brunch plates are served with: yogurt and homemade granola, mimosa alarm clock, organic rattes potatoes, organic fruits of Quebec, organic breads with cream of wheat, homemade jam, filter coffee or green tea. In addition you can choose one of 6 dish selections.

We were NOT offered yoghurt or granola, potatoes, bread or jams or coffee. I even had to ask for coffee. We did receive fruits and the mimosas. The coffee was watery and disappointing. No one came by for refills. The fruits offered were some bruised Macintosh apples and cantaloupe that looked like they were cut with a serrated knife.

Restaurants should not advertise what they do not offer.

I think the servers need to be educated and understand the menu because service is important. More importantly management should oversee the service if it's important to them for customer satisfaction. The only disappointment in our Quebec City dining experience.

Fantastic Service, Food was incredible as a Celiac/ Gluten Intolerant person everything was made in a safe space , especially as I had made clear that there should be no Cross Contamination.
They assured me there wouldn't be.
I had a delicious salad with gluten free bread on top was so yummy and a side of fries with homemade in house ketchup .
