In the lee of St Etienne du Mont in the Latin Quarter, and with an interior that goes back to the late 17th century and cellars to the 12th century, L’Ecurie oozes history from every pore. The interior is rustic but genuine and not faux-rustic ; there is even a genuine manger in situ as befits a former stables.
This was lunch and whilst there is a 3 course menu for 17 euros we plumped for a main and a pudding. The lamb cutlets and the rump steak were both excellent as were the accompanying chips/fries ; no nonsense about trendy matchstick chips here. Two large profiteroles served warm were excellent as was the superb cheese platter. The latter at 6.50 euros was the bargain of the last few days : 4 different cheeses presented at a perfect room temperature. A half litre of quaffable Cote du Rhone at 6.50€ and a Calvados digestif on the house meant our cup had runneth over. One minus: the bread was suspiciously aged but that did not detract from an excellent experience.
