Really lovely crepes, both for main course and dessert. My companion had the Normandie specialty and I have the La Spinach crepe, both excellent. The dessert crepes were really good. The Normandie with apple and calvados really packed a punch and the traditional Nutella one...More

Outstanding crepes both savoury and sweet. I love the slated caramel varieties. We ate there a couple of times and in both cases the food was excellent and the service quick and helpful.

The food here is really exceptional, the seating is kind of tight. Overall it's very much recommended if you are looking for authentic french food.

I've been there once with my boyfriend and his family. It was packed with people. We ordered one crêpe each. It took quite sometime for us to be served. They provided sheets full of puzzles, I guess that was the way to divert the concentration....More

The galettes were delicious with a large range of fillings available. Around 6-7 euros for a filling meal was very reasonable and the plates were clean! Normandy cider was good and the desserts were delicious, can particularly recommend the coffee ice cream.
