Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

How about if I told you was a place in Hull that served top quality classic French bistro food at great prices, run by a friendly chef who can’t do enough for you? Well it exists! Le Crepier Papin! 4 of us had been to...the football and were peckish, we suggested this place because we’d been in the past and had never been disappointed but I’d genuinely just how good this place is. We didn’t book but it was early so there was a table for us, we ordered cold, bottled, reasonably priced beer straight away and then ordered our food. The menu isn’t massive but it doesn’t need to be. There’s a few starters, several French classics, burgers, savoury and sweet crepes and that’s it but there’s definitely something for everyone. We ordered beef bourguignon, beef stroganoff, a Cajun chicken burger and a cheese burger, it was all cooked in the kitchen infront of us and brought to the table fresh and hot. Within 15 minutes there were 4 clean plates, couldn’t fault the food in anyway. Will be back.More

The food here is amazing, homemade with quality ingredients. It really is Hull’s hidden Gem. Been going regularly as it’s the best food around and has such a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend!

My husband and I recently visited Le Crepier Papin. We arrived around 8pm on a Friday evening to find just one other couple and a single diner. First thing I noticed was they were all wearing their coats/jackets. I was okay with the temperature (although...it could have been warmer) but my husband had to keep his jacket on throughout the meal. Some of the wines on the menu were crossed out which was a disappointment so I tried the house dry white which, personally, I thought was undrinkable so I tried the house medium white which was "okay". The food on the other hand was really good. I had a fish dish off the festive menu (can't remember the name) and it was lovely. I would have really appreciated some crusty French bread to have accompanied it to mop up the lovely sauce at the bottom of the bowl. Our waitress was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. So far so good you might say (apart from the wine and the cold). Our problem was really with the waitress. As the place wasn't too busy, once she had finished serving she went back into the kitchen (which is open) and continually talked and talked to whoever was in the kitchen area with her. We asked for the lovely French music to be turned up to drown her out but she just talked louder! It really spoilt what I was hoping to be a nice romantic evening out with my husband. However, I was not put off and would like to try Le Crepier Papin againMore

Having not visited for a couple of years we hoped it would be as good as before and we not disappointed. Opening hours are reduced now so only open 5-9pm but it is a really charming restaurant with a lovely feel. Food is fantastic and...the prices are very reasonable. Lots of gluten free options as well. On a busy road, it is easy to walk past and not notice it but Le Crepier is well worth a visit.More

We wanted somewhere different to the run of the mill restaurants and chose Le Crepier Papin as it’s got a lovely quaint atmosphere and soft background music. Joe the owner and chef is really friendly and cooks some lovely fresh dishes (just love his savoury...salmon crepes) with a varied menu. All washed down with a large carafe of very good house red wine. Had all three courses and was absolutely delighted with the quality, service and price. Would highly recommend.More

I’ve always liked this restaurant- good atmosphere, lovely food, reasonably priced. The information about opening hours on the website is out of date as they are currently only opening Tuesday to Saturday from 5pm. It was very quiet on Saturday early evening which is a...shame as it deserves to be busy. Everything was as good as ever.More

Excellent as always. It's not a place for fast food, but a great place to relax and enjoy lovely food. Just take your time and have a great evening. I can rarely tear myself away from the Tartiflette galette, and this was no exception, it...was wonderful.More

Lovely atmosphere early evening with candle lit tables. Food was excellent and Joe Papin is very customer focussed too. A great small independent - well worth a visit.

Absolutely gorgeous meal with the family. Salmon fillet the best I’ve ever had and my husband said the same about his fillet steak. House white wine was super drinkable and extremely good value. High chair for our baby and lovely service all round.

We go here often with friends and family or just for a nice meal as a couple. The food and service is always great and everything is freshly cooked and very reasonably priced. Some of our favourites are the homemade chicken Kiev's, lasagne, beef bourguignon,...tuna steak and the beef steaks are very well cooked too. There is a good selection of wine and beer and if you have a sweet tooth the deserts are lovely! Well worth a try and you will probably want to go back too!More

Lovely food at a pretty good price! There's a great selection of food and drinks available and all of it is freshly made. I can't recommend the burgers enough - they're really tasty. Only downside is that the food takes a while to be brought...out. I personally don't mind this because I enjoy conversation, but I imagine others would prefer the food to come out a bit quicker.More

Ordered a takeaway, the food was well packaged and stayed hot until we got home. We ordered the tartiflette and steak de thon. The tartiflette was a very tasty, large portion. It also came with lovely roasted vegetables which were well seasoned, and a dressed...side salad. The steak de thon was fresh and came with fried potatoes. We just managed to finish it off with two chocolate crepes which were huge! Highly recommend.More

We ate here one evening, quite late, during the eat out to help out offer period. I would say this place has more of a cafe feel to it than a restaurant and would be interested in coming back to try it for breakfast but...not necessarily an evening meal. The girl serving was very distant and appeared either bored or to have something worrying her. She was very casual and rather blank faced in pointing out our table. My friend asked for red wine and was told they had run out. There is a Sainsbury’s just along the road so this is really inexcusable. The menu is not particularly French at all and I opted for lasagne which was decent and enjoyable but did take a long time to come out of the kitchen, as did the starters. It was strange that whilst we were eating some large bloke kept coming in and out of the place and was stood chatting to staff in the kitchen doorway, despite the social distancing rules. The crepe with Grand Marnier was my favourite part of the meal and my least favourite was the goats cheese salad.More
