Part bar, part bazaar.
Trincante - a portmanteau of the French words for trinquer (to cheers) and brocante (flea market), defines exactly what this little bar in the 18e does. At this bar-cum-bazaar you can hunt a bargin and enjoy a glass of wine at the same time. From the wicker chairs you sit on, to the lamps on the walls, you can buy a lot of what you see at La Trinquante.
All in all, this place is as relaxed as its concept. The owner is friendly, happy to recommend what's good to go with one of the seafood planches. Our advice is to try one of the speciality mixed plates featuring Carnac oysters, winkles and prawns.
In keeping with the theme, there are some thirfty formulas including 6 oysters and a glass of wine for €12, and better quality than some of the trinkets on offer. A pint of La Gaule is €5 all day, something of a novelty out of happy hours.
Another plus point is that the downstairs room (with a jukebox and football table) can be reserved for free, for birthdays and parties.
