The food is excellent and the staff attentive, friendly and professional. The standards are consistently high. I have eaten at this restaurant many times and I have never had a bad meal. They cater well for couples, families and large groups. Highly recommend!

Fantastic food, service and ambience at all times. The happy hour deals are superb (usually enough for my wife and I) with plenty of choice if you don't want to pay the understandable surcharges for some of the items.

Always excellent. Food is top class, good selection of drinks, service great. I always have a fillet steak when I go and it's consistently good. Our group all had steak, and everyone said they were cooked to perfection. Beautiful views across the Lune if you're sat upstairs, brilliant atmosphere if you're downstairs.

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.
