The decor is very traditional with wooden chairs, simple
chequered tablecloths, and lots of pictures that decorate the walls along with wall lights
that provide a subtle, quite intimate atmosphere.
You will also find that very traditional French cuisine is served with specialities such
as escargots in a garlic sauce, quails roasted with mushrooms and frog legs sautéed with
tomatoes and onions. There are lots of other dishes to choose from as well such as
snails, beef bourgignon, oxtail, chicken fricassée, stewed rabbit, etc but some of these
are only ever available dependant upon the season, for example boiled crayfish or deer.
Le Quincy is situated close to the River Seine and the Gare
de Lyon and being located in the 12th arrondissement of Paris,
it is also only a short walk from the Bastille Square or Place de la Bastille, as it is also known.
The owner is quite a character and feels that everyone should eat well and therefore
serves up a hearty meal in decent sized portions, so make sure you arrive hungry, as he
will expect you to eat up!
Obviously, because of regional specialities and the roots from the Loire Valley region, you will also find a great
variety of Loire Valley wines, but the Rhone wines also feature.
Restaurant Guide Key Points
Le Quincy is open on a Tuesday to Friday from noon until 3pm and from 7pm through to
9.30pm, but is closed on all other days.
This is a very small restaurant that is popular with the locals, yet little known by
tourists, so reservations are highly recommended and although it is not one of the
cheapest restaurants in Paris, you will not
be disappointed with the cuisine or the atmosphere.
There is no particular dress code, you just turn up as you are, plus dogs are allowed in
side as well.
Also they do not accept credit cards, so you must make sure you have enough cash with you!
