Le Plomb du Cantal has a very friendly and lively feel that
becomes extremely crowded, especially of an evening and situated in the 14th
arrondissement of Paris, it is not the place for a
romantic gourmet dining experience, but great for a down to earth fun and enjoyable
evening eating out with friends and laughter.
And unlike many restaurants in Paris, the
meals served are hearty and a sensible plateful at a reasonable cost, so you will
definitely not go hungry when you eat here and unless you are used to large portions, we
would recommend that you only have a light lunch.
But unfortunately, because of the quality of the French cuisine and the fact that they do
not take reservations, you may well have to wait quite a while at the bar with a drink or
two prior to getting a table.
Whilst eating in Paris at Le Plomb du
Cantal, you can expect to experience dishes such as onion soup, truffade, which is crispy
sautéed potatoes covered with Auvergne melted cheese, very large steaks from two
distinctive breeds of cattle, the Salers and Aubrac, tripoux which is sheep offal, chou
farci, which is stuffed cabbage, duck confit, and homemade desserts to name but a few of
the meals served. But do bear in mind that they have mainly meat dishes on the menu.
