We have eaten three or four times at Le Vieux Quartier and this time we arrived early enough on a lovely summer's day to secure an outside table overlooking the small and attractive square.
The restaurant is run by a young couple and as usual we found them friendly and attentive. They offer the usual range of menus at varying prices but there are several dishes which are a little more unusual.
Madame and I chose a starter of Marbré of Fois Gras and Oxtail. This was delicious; in fairness this was probably mainly due to the oxtail. My main course of beautifully cooked cod with a Parmesan crumble crust was a delight and Madame was fulsome in her praise of the bowl of fish stew she had chosen. A crème brulée for dessert had a thin layer of finely chopped basil under the brulée mixture - an unlikely pairing but one that worked beautifully and contrasted well with the fruit macédoine on top.
The wine list has several wines by the carafe but we chose an old favourite of ours; Macon Lugny by Louis Latour, nicely chilled and a good accompaniment to our food.
The couple who accompanied us were very happy with our choice of restaurant, so much so that they picked up the bill. I did sneak a peek at it and, including aperos and coffees, it came to less than 150 euros which I though was fair.
