Arriving on a Sunday Night looking for a Restaurant this place was packed. They call themselves a Creperie but by the look of the food being served from the menu it is a lot more. Very Fair price and Excellent Food.

Overrated and disappointing. The crepes are over cooked and I would go elsewhere if you have choices. I didn't have a choice as no one was serving food in the area. The salad was the only thing that was ok. Very very poor restaurant in Vichy. Crepes suck.

Well placed restaurant/bar with a slightly plastic feel. Young waitresses possibly learning their trade and therefore not a lot of warmth. The crêpes were fine and well presented. Relaxed atmosphere so you can read the newspaper.

In the center of the town, this restaurant focuses on all his dishes with crepes. Something different vs. other restaurants in the town . The dishes are delicious regarding this cuisine style. Not enough space between table for privacy but the service is excellent!

Food was great at a good price. The dog was no problem although he is a Grand Chien de Pyrenees, Marco. They found a peaceful table in the back of the restaurant. Very nice and friendly service. Had several regular customers we could see. We will be back.

Although this restaurant is highly rated, our experience was not great. We had a dinner there one evening at 20.30. The restaurant and terrace were pretty busy but not packed. We sat an available table. an another couple came after us and sat next to us. The waitress finally appeared and gave them the menu. We had to wait a... More

After reviewing the restaurants which were open on a Monday we settled on Josephine, slightly concerned that nobody else was dining at 7.15pm We needn't have worried, at 7.30 the whole of Vichy arrived and every table was taken within the next 15 mins, not just passers through like ourselves but a lot of locals. The serving staff were busy... More

I eat here fairly regularly when I'm staying near Vichy. It is always busy on Sunday lunchtimes and it's advisable to book if you don't want to be disappointed. When the weather is warmer it's great to sit outside. It's located near a crossraods with several other restaurants in the vicinity. I think that the set menus are good value... More

After reading all the good reviews here, I really would say that this restaurant was nothing special. It is pretty standard as French food goes. It is a clean place, with a reasonable menu, but really nothing outstanding that would have me rating this place as one of the best in Vichy
