Although Le Quincampe has lost some of its charm since doing away with the massive log fireplace that was its biggest draw, it remains a cosy dinner nook with a reliably good menu.
Dishes are classic but varied: market-fresh lasagne, minty goat cheese feuilletés with squash and cumin-infused carrots, or shrimp and oyster mushroom risotto. Even the more traditional offerings are a touch original, notably the Quincampoise platter, with its inclusion of diced kiwi. Main courses are €14 for lunch and €16 for dinner, while appetisers are in the €7-12 range, desserts €5-8, and around €15 for cheese platters and charcuterie.
From November through April the restaurant serves an oriental brunch, as well as afternoon tea. Despite the loss of its crackling centrepiece, there are still plenty of reasons to drop in.
