With the popularity of fantasy romance drama Goblin: The Lonely and Great God, Quebec City in Canada's Quebec province has become a hot destination for the fans. But, if you want to visit the restaurant that was frequented by Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) and Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun), you'd need to u-turn and visit South Korea instead.

We saw the restaurant many times in the popular Goblin drama. The steak restaurant is decorated with paintings and decor that evoke a strong European style. 

A most memorable scene was when Kim Shin walked in and had a precognition of what the future may hold for Eun Tak.

However, if you would like to visit the restaurant in Quebec City, you won't find it, because it is not even in Canada.

Say what?

Yes, just like actors who play roles in a drama, real-life locations often masquerade as fictional locales too.

In this case, Cafe Zino plays the steak restaurant in Quebec City, and it is actually located in Paju, Gyeonggi province of South Korea.

Inside the impressive building sits Cafe Zino, a restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine. Diners can enjoy a comfortable and stylish setting that is quite an unexpected find in an Asian city.

In a news report, the cafe owner is quoted to describe Cafe Zino as “an exotic building reminiscent of a British museum in London.” Among the stylish decor and furniture is a grand piano to further enhance the exquisite atmosphere.

Although you won't find the steak that Eun Tak loves, you can choose from a very nice offering of Italian dishes and desserts. 

If you're lucky, you can enjoy the charm of make-believe by siting in the same spot where Kim Shin realized his vision was a happy one.

Many fans have now been visiting this special cafe to take photos for their drama mementos.

If visiting South Korea isn't in your travel plan for the near future, you can also take another journey with our favorite Goblin here:
