About us

Situated in the Port-Royal Hotel in the heart of the Old Port of Quebec City, Louise Taverne & Bar à Vin offers a unique experience. Our engaged and passionate team welcome guests in our warm and festive ambiance where we offer, at a reasonable price, a simple, flavourful and well sourced menu, exceptional and friendly service as well as one of the best selections of privately imported wines, cocktails and local beers from Quebec. Louise's interior design was conceived of by LemayMichaud, one of Canada's best architecture firms. Our terrace, with more than 100 seats, is bathed in sun during the summer months.


Our gourmet tavern and wine bar brings together two innovative restaurant concepts, which set Louise apart thanks to several factors. On the Taverne side, we were inspired by many of Europe’s gourmet taverns. Clients have the possibility to come and enjoy a comforting, flavourful meal in our warm and inviting environment. On the Bar à vin side, we offer a convivial ambiance to savor beers, wines and cocktails all while enjoying amuse-bouches, appetizers from our raw bar, a selection of salads, charcuteries, oysters, homemade pasta and risotto. Our guests can enjoy a unique experience in either or both the Taverne or Bar à vin sides when visiting us. It is possible at the Taverne and Bar à vin to simply enjoy a drink, appetizers or amuse-bouche or have a full meal.



Chef Nikolas Couture's Table

For those looking to reserve our chef's table in Louise Taverne's kitchen, we offer a unique experience for groups of 10 guests or less. Having worked in many of Quebec City's renowned restaurants such as Le Saint-Amour and Toast, Nikolas is very welcoming, friendly and rigorous in his culinary work. When eating at our butcher block-style table, Chef Nikolas offers guests a meal to share.



Menus, market fresh arrivals and our specialities

On the Taverne side we offer a wide variety of appetizers and main courses from our menu which changes according to the season. Our menu is inspired by the classics of well-known gourmet taverns around the world. You can taste our homemade charcuteries, tartares, bone marrow, whole fish, fish 'n chips, burgers, rabbit, braised beef cheek, lamb and vegetarian appetizers and mains. This menu is complemented every evening by our daily specials: oysters, appetizers, mains to share (fish, seafood, meat) foie gras and truffles. We also offer succulent appetizer and main options for vegetarians and vegans, as well as delicious options of children.

On the Bar à vin side, we propose many snacks, salads and raw appetizers from our menu. Our menu is inspired by some of the most popular wine bars around the world. Our guests can try our homemade hot dogs, tostadas, salads, tartares, ceviches, tataki, sashimi, carpaccio as well as vegetarian appetizers and mains. This menu is complemented every evening by our daily specials: oysters, appetizers, charcuteries, homemade pasta, risotto.

Our team in the kitchen uses quality produce from local farms.

Drinks: Their idea of a "shot" of whisky is not the American idea of a "shot" of whisky. Ordered a double shot and it barely was even the equivalent of a regular one shot. The waitress made good on this. Then they described the "burger of the day" as covered with calamari. There was NO burger. The burger was the calamari. It wasn't that good. Slimy, fell apart while eating it - messy. High-priced food, but more like cheap pub fare. Also ordered fish & chips. The fish was mushy, like it was fried too long. More batter w/ air pockets than fish. We opted not to return for breakfast even though our hotel offered coupon for 30% off to eat here. We found other places to eat the remainder of our trip.

J'ai beaucoup aimé l'ambiance, la bouffe. J'ai mangé les calmars grillés, il était délicieux. Nous étions un groupe d'amies et avons toutes apprécié l'endroit. Le service était peut-être un peu lent, cependant en plein période estival, sachant le défi qu'ont les restauranteurs à trouver du personnel, je suis plus tolérante, particulièrement lorsqu'on mange bien! Merci
