We went to Quebec City for a couple of days.

Paris Grill was located at the entrance to our hotel in Quebec City, since it was supper time when we checked into the hotel, we thought we’d eat there and save the trouble of finding our way back again.The adult menu was available in either French or English, but the children’s menu was in French only, so we had to try to figure it out. The waiter brought a lovely basked with warm fresh bread and water. He found a nice small juice glass for the 1-year-old to have some water in.The kids meals were about $6 each. They come with an appetizer, a drink, and dessert. The 9-year-old ordered the soupe-du-jour (which was pea soup), vegetarian pizza, cookies, and a Shirley temple. The 5-year-old had piggies in blankets (bacon wrapped hot dogs), pizza, cookies, and a Shirley temple. The 5-year-old didn’t finish her pizza, but the 9-year-old had no problem finishing it up.Mom ordered the soup of the day also, for $3.95 and a special French pizza ‘classique’ which had cheese, onions, mushrooms etc. for $10.95I had a Ham & Cheese Baguette, with a choice of regular or hot mustard, which also included fries served with mayo (although the waiter did offer me the choice of ketchup or mayo), and a mixed greens salad for $10.95.One of the main attractions for the kids was the Eiffel tower out front. It was a small model, but the kids loved it. They also liked the Eiffel tower shaped pepper mill that the waiter used to add fresh pepper to entrées. There was an upper section of the dining room, up a staircase in the middle of the room. There were also trees throughout the restaurant, with what we believed to be olives on them. Even the bathroom was pretty to look at, with the stalls painted to look like a garden fence. Although we went there primarily out of convenience (it was right beside the hotel), we quite enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, except for the crying baby at our table. (The 1-year-old was quite tired). We had to get a take-out box for some of the dinner because the baby would not allow us to finish in peace. Luckily, we were right beside the hotel. The kids loved the cookies shaped like pigs. Paris Grill is a chain restaurant that is affiliated with other chains with pigs and bunnies as mascots.Everyone liked their food and the kids wanted to go back again right away.
