If typical Lyon food is not for you, there is always the backup of the French staple of crepes! I am a fan of the savoury variety and searched TripAdvisor to find a suitable option. Arriving, the decor was a little....odd, but I seem to attract interestingly decorated restaurants. The service was good, beer selection ok, crepes very good. Would... More

The menus are tattered and very scruffy looking. The deco is very eery and not very cosy. I got a splinter from sliding my hand on the chair. Aside from this, the meal was good. I had a crepe with goat's cheese, parma ham and leeks. Very nice, a little dollop of tomato purée was on top which I found... More

The creperie is easy to access with metro a. The service was great and the crêpes were fantastic. It would be wise to reserve a table.

I always take my family here if possible; I love the cider served in bowl mugs, the creative presentation of crepes and galettes, nice customer service, the place looks very particular and the price is reasonable too. I do recommend with friends, family or couples.

The service was friendly and attentive, the atmosphere cozy - but it's the food that makes it special. I would gladly eat here 10 days running! It's excellent value for money and a great experience. If in Lyon you'll probably want to hit a traditional Bouchon from Lyon. Make this your stop for your second dinner!

My sister and I really enjoyed La Creperie du Major. We stopped in a few hours before dinner to make a reservation -- it didn't look like we needed one, as the restaurant wasn't full when we arrived. The meal was a good price, the server was very attentive.

The atmosphere is warm, the staff is friendly, and the food is so good! Since we don't understand French, the staff introduced every cuisine for us in detail and with patient. We really appreciate that! I like my friend's "stariath" the most :)

Stopped for lunch. While there is no english menu, the shop owner was very willing to assist in crepe selection. I had a crepe of the day which included eggplant, beef, béchamel, onion and tomato (very gold although heavy herb Provence so beware if you aren't a fan). My spouse had the Jamon with 2 types of cheese. Also good.... More

Very tasty galettes and crepes and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. But nowhere to eat outside on a sunny day.

Variety in crepes very nicely presented. Cute place. Kind service. I really liked the artesan ciders served in ceramic "mugs". I recommend it for sure!
