Great places to go out with your crew in Quebec City

A little happy hour between colleagues? A supper between friends? A guys and/or girls night? Here is a short guide of venues offering private spaces or rooms where you won't be afraid to bother anyone if you laugh too hard!

La Planque Restaurant

1027 3E Av, Québec, QC G1L 2X3

This restaurant is aptly named because the basement of this excellent 3rd Avenue location is a real hideout. With the capacity to accommodate 10 people, the place is perfect for intimate gatherings with family or friends, which will be enhanced by new chef Olivier Godbout’s delicious seasonal menu.

Maison Des Premières Nations Inc

5, Place de la Rencontre, Wendake, QC G0A 4V0

This restaurant is well located in the heart of Wendake on place de la Rencontre. Led by Martin Gagné, La Traite will help your group discover fine food inspired by Huron-Wendat cuisine, and often featuring local produce and game. Psst: there is always foie gras on the menu.

Chez Boulay Bistro Boréal

1110, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S4

On rue Saint-Jean, Jean-Luc Boulay's "little table," headed by chef Arnaud Marchand, gladly accommodates groups, especially if they are fond of boreal discoveries. Chef Arnaud cleverly combines French techniques with local in-season products.

Restaurant Metropolitain Inc

1188, av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2S7

The debate continues: who makes the best sushi in Quebec? Eddie, on Cartier Avenue, regularly tops the list of choices. They offer enjoy excellent sushi in a private room on the second floor, away from the envious eyes of neighbours who have not ordered raw fish off the menu.

Matto 71

71, rue Saint-Pierre, Québec, QC G1K 4A3

Many restaurants pride themselves on being Italian, but this one uses the owner’s mother’s authentic Italian recipes. Whether on rue Myrand or in Hotel 71, we are tempted by the typical Italian dishes, including their tasty four-cheese pizza, figs, prosciutto and classic cannolis.

Bistro Hortus

1190, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S6

Good organic chicken! This is what the Tournebroche offers on rue Saint-Jean: quality rotisserie that you'll be happy to share with your group. Their crispy chicken skin is criminally delicious, and their choice crèmes brûlées are so good they almost overshadow the chicken!
