“Blink and you may miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

It's well worth the effort to head for Crocantine for food that's angelically prepared. Try the omelette or enchilada; I guarantee that you'll never want to eat any other. It's a very small footprint of a bistro with a very large enjoyment quotient.

“Organic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

My daughter saw this place on trip advisor, so we went there for breakfast as its sign said open at 9am, so we went to walk inside an d the lady said, no inside, so we went outside where she asked what we would like. We said a menu, but no! We don't serve food till12 but my daughter really wanted to go there so we went for a walk around town and got back at around 11.50 and were not allowed to sit down till twelve. This aside, the food was great and not expensive, and after talking to the ladies, we quite warmed to them and had a funny afternoon talking with them,as they gave us a bit of French lesson and how to say things.

“Interesting small local French Resturant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

Liked the owner wore flat caps. Simple minimum style decor. If you like salad, cheese, ham and vegetable. This is a very good place to be. Dinner menu is hand written on a board all in French. Service is very friendly and intimate. Not expensive. Like very much of the simple style food.

“Not as it seems”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

This eatery proves the weak link on the Trip Advisor site, if you check all the reviews they are all local people and mostly have only written one review, now in a tourist town that seems very strange to me I only wish I had noticed before we visited, could it be that they are all friends of the owners. The staff were very pleasant. I did not want a full meal and chose a salad, and was directed to a salad bar, with limited choice, after the fashion you will find in some supermarkets, not one of the ample salads you expect in French cafes. My husband had sausage and mash which he said was O K. we both had a small glass of red wine no prices displayed but when the bill came 6 euros each very small glass. This is a small cafe, with nothing to recomend it really. As a trourist I do rely on Trip Advisor, but after this episode will be very wary and watch who is making the recommendations, we certainly would not recommend this cafe. Not good value for money, or atmosphere.
