“Very Pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Having pigged out at lunch and with theh weather being very hot and sticky we decided that a light supper was in order. The previous evening we went to tthe No 1 rated restaurant in Le Mans and had an epic meal and decided that it had to be No 1 in St Valery.

We arrived just after seven, sadly not in enough time to secure on of the bay biew seats. The service was very friendly and we were soon furnished with our Galettes - I opted for the Norwegian which was very yummy. At this point, although suitable sated, I caught site of another customer Crepe flambee. Gluttony took over and I was soon tucking into a crepe Normandie flambeed in Calvados. Need I say more. Very reasonable and left to walk off the excess in this pretty coastal town

“Excellent pancake house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

We ate a dessert at this place after a fairly bad meal in the restaurant a few hundred meters down, and were very impressed by the pancake house. Their pancakes were delicious and well presented and the service friendly and effective. We tried the "fancy" pancakes with caramelle cream and almonds, would highly recomend them. If you are in the area, both the restaurant and the town are worth a detour.

“Great selection of teas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

We picked this restaurant as somewhere to have a snack and a tea rather than a coffee. The selection of teas was great. I had a normal breakfast tea and my wife one with orange and cinnamon called St Sylvestre. we had a timer to make sure the tea was brewed for the correct time.

We also had a simple lemon and sugar crepe but there is a good selection. friendly service and we had a view over the Somme.

“Vegetarian options available even in St Valery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Being vegetarian in France is difficult enough but next to impossible in St Valery. Despite previous contacts with other places none would help! Tante Olympe proved the exception. It opens at 700pm and by 715pm on the Friday was turning people away! The food was excellent and the proprietor helpful with giving us greater choice!

Puddings and wine are good too.

“Cracking crepes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013 via mobile

We went here as a large family group on Easter Saturday. We have been many times before & it is still as good as ever. Very helpful & charming staff (opened their garage to secure my son's bike) - great crepes & wonderful view over towards Le Crotoy. Don't want too many people to go though or we won't get a table next time!!
