A small restaurant close to the central square. The service was friendly and we enjoyed the food. I had the Haute Mar and my partner the St. Jacques crepes both served with salad. We'd also recommend the Belle Helene crepe (chocolate and pear) for dessert. Good value for money.

We went to Le Petite Flambee encouraged by Tripadvisor. The place is cosy and charming and the staff is friendly. The countless sorts of 'galettes', stuffed pancakes, are typical for the Northern France area. To be honest, the taste was great (salmon, goat cheese), but it is not haute cuisine. But neither is the bill. Definetely worth a try.

After all the reviews I had read of people raving about the place, maybe my expectations were too high. I had dinner there with my daughter and was not impressed. The desert was very yummy but the savory crepes lacked "something." It was not that tasty. I had the salmon crepes. The staff is very nice and helpful, though. My... More

I love my pancakes. It was my favorite food growing up. The 'Gourmand' menu (three courses, €16,95) at La Petite Flambee gave me all the pancakes my tummy could hold, and though it's simple food, they sure made it taste like gourmand food to me. Yes, technically it's called a crepe, but don't go into this place expecting a classic... More

I like to have crepes when in northern France and I tried several but this one is really one of the best. You have a very wide choice from traditional and simple to the more complex. You can have also salads.

We were early and were given a table for two. Lucky us, because huge numbers of people came through the door and couldn't get in. Within half an hour the restaurant was heaving and very buzzy. The food we just had crepes and salad and it was superb, not fussy just right. Service was splendid and we weren't at all... More

We had an enjoyable meal here. It was nice to try some authentic French food and we both enjoyed our crepes. Both of us agreed that just having one crepe for a main course wasn't filling enough - you probably need to have a double crepe or a starter in order to feel full after the main. The staff were...

Recommended by a friend, i went with her to try this place, and we didn't regret at all. There's a lot of crepe choices the salty and the sweet one. Very good crepes taste and the service is good, If you want to get lost in crepes, you know where you need to go

After reading many reviews we have decided to check out the place. Went for a lunch and had the express menu which is a good value for money. 2-course meal for 12-13 euro and a drink. Such a shame that there is no English menu, so we had to guess what we were ordering. Waiter did not seem to be... More
