After a shaky start ,all went well. initially the owner said " one dog not two "
(We have two super well behaved labs who have accompanied us in fine restaurants in Paris) agreed to let us in, apparently two dogs are hard to control by two people !
The Galettes were superb, the best we have tasted.
Good value for a popular town worth a stop .

It seems a bit harsh to full menu restaurants to judge then against"Les Galettes de Tante Olympe" as it is basically a pancake house, albeit a very good one.
My wife and I lunched here during a visit to St Valerie. We each had a different galette and a "pichet" of the cider on tap. Both were excellent and so filling that we couldn't find enough room to try out one of the crepes, although the ones we saw other people eating looked very good. An excellent reason to return!
Although it got very full service was excellent. Friendly, helpful in finding us a table with a view and very efficient.
Definitely a place to return to.

We were on a day trip from Rouen with St Valery a convenient stop off for lunch. This is an historic town overlooking the Baie de Somme, a nature reserve of national importance. Tante Olympe is on the main street of the lower town which is lined with many choices for lunch and dinner. Any Breton would be happy eat here as it has to be one of the best places for these Bretagne specialities.
An unassuming place, that we had no prior knowledge of but would wholeheartedly endorse as the number 1 spot in town.

Excellent 'crêpes bretonnes'! And even more delicious pancakes for dessert. This all with a very welcoming staff and a great view at the bay of the Somme! For that it's necessary to reserve your table in advance (or to be very lucky). Afterwards we had a nice walk along the bay with a nice sunset as desert :-)

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
