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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Sunday Lunch was exceptional. The food was absolutely first class and service was professional with a smile. Many so-called starred restaurants could learn a lot from the example set by QSF.the only downside were the table sizes for two were on the small side and the chairs slightly uncomfortable but overall an excellent experience and one to be hopefully repeated.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I visited on Valentine's weekend with my partner and another couple.

Lovely quaint restaurant, nice atmosphere and the most friendly staff.

We visited at 5:30pm on the Saturday, so were entitled to half price on certain meals.

I had chicken to start with which was nice and swordfish for main which was absolutely stunning! All washed down with a lovely glass of the house red.

Next time I am in Lancaster, I will be returning.

“Phenomenal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

I've been going for years and a couple of years ago there was a dip in quality. I'm now happy to see that every time I go everything is excellent: the food, the staff, the ambience and the wine, of course! The quality of food never ceases to amaze me and the portions are very generous.
