“hoisted too far on its own petard?”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

I think the positive reviews on trip advisor may have gone to the head and pockets of this restaurant. When I went - it was so packed that what may have been a lovely 'corner' for a quiet crepe or galette - or house speciality - had turned into a squeeze for a seat against the crowd - in a smokey (cooking smoke) crowded and noisy room. The crepe was good - as reported by other reviewers - but still a crepe, and I think it may be time find a new place in Bourges for such simple fare - and hope that Creperie des Remparts - will return to its more unassuming roots - that made it popular in the first place.

“Proper French place”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

We had a family lunch here. The staff were very welcoming and attentive to our children. It's used by locals too, so that box is ticked. It's a slick operation, which I suppose isn't too surprising as the food is generally uncomplicated. They've still got to get it right though. We were all impressed, from nana to the kids.

“Good regional food”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Ate here for dinner while touring Bourges. The service was prompt, the server friendly and patient with my poor French and the galette (savory crepe) that I had was very good.

Close to the cathedral. Pleasant, friendly service with a choice of indoor or outdoor, terrace, seating. Both savory and sweet crepes are excellent and a great selection to choose from.
