You can dine in a restaurant that’s in the oldest house in Quebec. Just a few steps from the world-famous Fairmont Château Frontenac Hotel is Restaurant Aux Anciens Canadiens, which was built in 1675! The cozy restaurant with its thick walls was originally a house, and in a story that has been contradicted by history, it has been claimed that one famous resident was General Montcalm who lived and died there. The menu focuses on traditional Quebec cuisine, from poutine and hearty meat pies, to upside down maple syrup pouding. This restaurant is included in the popular book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.
