Very few restaurants stand the test of time.
Not only has Restaurant Bonaparte been serving “classic French cuisine” for over 30 years, but the restaurant is busier now than it’s ever been.  Why?

Imagine a stream of soft light focused on a single orchid, set on a white tablecloth…

Experience romantic ambiance for an intimate dinner…

Enjoy contemporary décor within historic stone walls…

Savor exquisite cuisine, prepared with French savoir-faire and showcasing the finest fresh regional products.

All of this as well as consistency in food quality and service excellence has put us on top and kept us there.

Three delightfully decorated rooms decorated in the Empire style that dominated the Napoleonic era give the restaurant the intimate character that guests treasure.

The “Impératrice” with its chimney, its majestic sideboard and French hotel paneling.

The “Verriere”, with its stained glass, french doors and the glass roof, offers you maximum of brightness and the romantic vibe you’re          looking for.

The Centre Hall is at the heart of all the action.

The Bonaparte Bar is a great place to have a drink or order from the food menu.  You don’t have to be alone when you travel alone; come have a chat and tell us about yourself, you day or your dreams!

Gérard Fort, our chef and his recipes

A native of western France, Gérard Fort headed for the kitchen of the Bonaparte as soon as he arrived in Quebec in 1991.

Having worked in the Auvergne, Savoy, the south of France and his native Vendée region, he fills his plates with regional flavors and an essentially traditional French cuisine.

For those seeking authenticity in fine classical French cooking, the Bonaparte has become a standard, just like the dishes for which the restaurant has is renown: lobster with vanilla, house wild game terrine, mushroom ravioli, duck confit and our tartares…

For Gérard as well as for our regular guests, taking these classics off the menu would be unthinkable!
