Sounded like we was inside a wind tunnel, terrible noise from the extractor fan in the kitchen. Couldn't have a conversation with my partner as we couldn't hear each other. This hampered the experience and can't really rate the good. Ruined my birthday, won't be recommending it and won't be coming back

So, I have been to QSF a good handful of times now. My first experience I couldn't believe how good everything was cooked. That seems obvious right? But I hate going to a restaurant and thinking that I could have cooked it at home just as well. I want fresh perfectly cooked food with a good variety on the menu... More

QSF provides delicious, imaginative and beautifully cooked food in an intimate, friendly setting. The ambience is reminiscent of restaurants I have visited in various parts of France, where the emphasis is on superbly cooked food which is matched by the service.

A good place to eat out in Lancaster. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good choice on the menu (I can recommend the burger) plus they do a wide selection of drinks.

Went to simply French first time since 2014. Great food and service. Only comment would be the table slightly small for 4 people. Certainly come again

Description
Exquisite food, great company and meticulous attention to detail - that's the Quite Simply French experience. Oh... And don't forget the wine. NEVER forget the wine. We're passionate about what we do, about using only the very best ingredients, about creating a relaxed atmosphere and not taking ourselves too seriously.Eating out should be fun - and that's our secret ingredient. It's what gives us that little extra ooh la la. We are the only restaurant in Lancaster and within 30 miles of Lancaster to have a live lobster tank and specialise in fresh shellfish and seafood. Seafood Platters with oysters, clams, crab, lobster, prawns,langoustines, razor clams are available to order with 24 hours notice and subject to availability. We buy most of our produce locally and specialist ingredients from the famous Rungis Market in Paris. We pride ourselves in making our fine dining restaurant accessible to everyone with our Early Bird Offer Tuesday to Saturday with many dishes half price. On Wednesday evenings we have Steak and Mussels offer with main courses only £16 and on Thursdays Lobster and Champagne, a whole lobster and 2 glasses of champagne only £35. Sunday and Monday evenings enjoy our Simply Squiffy Offer, 2 courses and a bottle of wine for only £25. Sunday Lunch is 2 courses for £19. We have a extensive wine list and cocktail menu and are one of Lancaster's most popular restaurants. Christmas Parties are incredibly popular and booking is advisable well in advance.
