  • Such a romantic terrasse, nice to walk during the day and night! It was Wednesday night in September, luckily not a raining day. I felt I was in a fairy tale and dream town with extraordinary nightlight of river view and small town down on the hill.
  • Beautiful views. We went up with the Funiculaire, and walked down . Quite a few benches to sit there. You can just walk and enjoy the views. There happened to be a street performer by the statue when we were there. Look into the glass cases. We didn't go into the hotel but its a beautiful background. I was covered in gnats, for some reason they liked my yellow shirt- had to put a light gray sweater on - it was quite awful. Other than that, it's beautiful
  • Great boardwalk and stairs that lead to surrounding historic sites. Beautiful area in Quebec city, a must if you're in the area or passing through! Parking was a bit of a struggle with construction etc but did find close by street parking. Make sure you follow sing instructions as there were many people that got ticketed around me after going over the time limit. Dog and kid friendly.
  • An experience of a lifetime. Looks stunning in both day and night. The city is lit so perfectly at night. Remember to go for a stroll after dinner. Very picturesque!
  • Beautiful terrace. Great to walk there during the day and the night. The terrace offers a great view of the San Lorenz river and the Château Frontenac. From there you can climb to citadelle de quebec. At night the place is romantically lit and there are street musicians there, who add to the romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended and must visit while staying in Quebec city.
