The place to go if you like Crepes in large portions and wide varieties. We were 18 of us to eat at the French Touch Bistro last April. In spite of the number, we had serious difficulties to finish all the crepes we ordered. Great...More

Wet Saturday night. Undecided about cuisine ... wander Crown Street and bingo! Found French Touch. Looked cool, casual and welcoming. Quirky, attractive decor included a compact sand-surfaced petanque/boule court - a bonus addition. Restaurant is set around a central bar area and kitchen is open...More

Had a late dinner with a lovely savoury crepe with prosciutto, blue cheese, walnuts and caramelised pear. It was a lovely combination that I really enjoyed. The other half has the traditional cassoulet. It was delicious. Better than sone we had in France!
