Rising majestically from the heart of Old Québec City, the Château Frontenac is much more than an iconic hotel. Behind its walls is a wealth of gourmet cuisine, with quality to match the Château’s reputation of excellence. There are three restaurants to discover, whether or not you choose to stay overnight in this historical monument of the province’s capital.


Where the art of mixing takes hold of your senses

If you love cocktails, and are especially enthusiastic about new flavours, Bistro Le Sam will conquer your taste buds through mixology. Nader Chabaane is the man behind the bistro’s cocktail creations. Having travelled from New York to Paris, to China and to Greece, this seasoned mixologist knows how to juggle ingredients to create surprising tastes. The menu of appetizers and tapas of this elegant lounge-style bistro is sure to make your mouth water. Shows and performances by DJs provide the entertainment and create a lively atmosphere.

Trust the chef!

A recipient of the prestigious title of Maître cuisinier de France in winter 2015, Stéphane Modat invites you to the Champlain restaurant for a gourmet adventure of his own creation: the Modat experience. Leave it entirely up to the chef of the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac restaurants to propose a five-course meal, inspired by seasonal products. Mention any particular tastes or allergies, if needed, then sit back and wait for the chef’s surprise. Less adventurous palates can choose à la carte items inspired by the specialties of Quebec, Nova Scotia and even Iceland!

Did you say a cheese cellar?

The 1608 – Wine & Cheese Bar invites you to taste Quebec’s finest cheeses paired with wines from around the world. These artisanal cheeses are preserved in a one-of-a kind room called a cheese cellar, which allows cheeses to reach their maturity and fully develop their flavours. By combining these cheeses with the impressive wine selection, you’re sure to discover tastes you never even dreamed of.

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is cooking up a delicious gourmet celebration, perfect for your next trip to Québec City!
