“Excellent French Tapas!”
Review of The French Quarter

The French Quarter
Description: The French Quarter is a relaxed neighbourhood restaurant & wine Bar in a community of unique and quirky businesses in Newcastle city Centre. We are a friendly and approachable team of people, with a passion for the good things in life. Born from nostalgia for a traditional style of commerce and a desire to challenge perceptions that French dining is formal or fussy, we work with independent suppliers to offer a regularly changing wine list & tapas style menu. We have created a casual and sociable environment where customers are invited to experience our food, try our wines, shop from our deli and share our love of all things French!

Six of us enjoyed an excellent meal here last night, and had to arrive at 6 as fully booked later on. So already a popular place on a Newcastle Thursday evening! We shared a large mixed 'Planche', a wooden board with cold meats and cheeses from different parts of France, helpfully identified by one of the French waitresses (an authentic touch!). We became a little confused about what to order, and what had arrived with the Planche, but everything that arrived was very tasty and we found that one shared hot dish each was sufficient for us all, especially after the desserts of either Creme Brulee or Tarte Tatin. With a bottle of house red, and three pints of the cloudy, and deliciously fruity, Hickey the Rake Pale Ale, from excellent Wylam brewery, the bill came to £25 each, including the service charge.

Love seeing independents get into the city centre & this one fully deserves its spot!
Gorgeous menu, very authentic & tasty and the small plate concept works really well. Decent amount of veggie options too which works well with some of the rich french classics!
The wine was awesome & such good value for its quality. Service was really lovely... knowedgable, efficient and fun. Will definitely be back and hope its super successful

Two friend and myself have eaten here twice (last time on Saturday) and its absolutely fantastic - the charcuterie and cheese board was bursting with flavours - and the mains confit de canard and monkfish skewers - were just perfect. Accompanied by delicious wines recommended by the owner - the whole experience is just wonderful

A lovely restaurant with engaging and charming staff. The 'French Tapas' style concept worked a treat not least because each dish was both flavourful and delightfully presented. I can't praise the food too highly! The restaurant is small but the layout allows you to have personal space whilst still creating a good vibe. The styling and ambiance combine French authenticity with a twist of modernity. Given it has only been open for 6 weeks the team deserve to be congratulated. Recommend visiting.
