I went here on the last day of my business trip after this was recommended by my friend who studied here. I ordered a crepe with apples and Calvados and drank a cider brut with this, it was absolutely delicious. I do recommend the cider Brut, one of the best ciders I had (and I am actually more of a...

I brought 11 college students here for dinner one night and the hosts graciously accommodated us on the third floor. The crepes were perfect--crisp-edged, made with buckwheat flour, perfect. We ordered cider that was served pleasantly cold. The food is excellent. The service is warm. The prices are quite good.

I've been there once with my boyfriend and his family. It was packed with people. We ordered one crêpe each. It took quite sometime for us to be served. They provided sheets full of puzzles, I guess that was the way to divert the concentration. And it worked! The crepes were good! I had the one with chicken and cheese.... More

The galettes were delicious with a large range of fillings available. Around 6-7 euros for a filling meal was very reasonable and the plates were clean! Normandy cider was good and the desserts were delicious, can particularly recommend the coffee ice cream.

We walked in for a late lunch and the place was packed. However we had just a short (3 minute) wait for a table to be cleared. The menu had a good looking selection of sweet and savory items, we were in the mood for savory and the galettes that arrived were very tasty. The service was good and food... More

Spent two weeks in western Europe and must say this restaurant will not be forgotten. That is from a negative perspective. Family of 4 with two older teenage boys, we stopped in late one evening for crepes. Had just driven back from a day at the d-day beaches. The food was average. But her comes the tidal wave. We were... More

This creperie is very nice, the food is good and home made, the service is fast, the price isn't high. I recommend this place.

My dad and I enjoyed some galettes (chicken, steak, etc.) and some delicious crepes. The place was crowded but not too crowded and the waitress provided a menu in English. We both thought the service was good and the food was great. I would highly recommend.

Lovely brasserie had many guests indicating that has good food. It has 3 floors, where if you do not exceed hight of 170cm you can use all 3 of them (top floor has very low ceiling). The food was tasty but service wasn't as good.

We tried our very first galettes at this small, popular bistro where galettes & crepes are their specialty. Very satisfying buckwheat galettes...so much choice on the menu it was hard to choose! Loved the egg in the centre of the galette. Make sure to order some cider with it!
