Located on the top of a Steep hill, overlooking a turquoise bay, this authentic Breton Creperie is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch.

I ordered the day’s special, a Galette with goat’s cheese, tomato and proccutto. My partner had the more traditional cheese, egg and ham. Accompanied by a Kir Breton, for my companion, and a straight Cider for me, it was a perfect lunchtime meal.

Only problem was the very lax French anti-smoking laws that permit smoking when dining outside. As all the seating is outside (although under shade) it was a problem. The staff facilitated a quick change if tables mind you.

Good view, but the service was extremely slow. We went for breakfast. It has set menus for breakfast. There were 5 tables occupied but it took us approximately 10 minutes to be served menu, another 20 minutes to take order, and another 45 minutes to serve food! Food is ok. Advice is, if you are hungry, don’t go there.

Hard to locate but 100% worth it!

We came here based on reviews and we were not disappointed. Took some effort to find though! Turns out to access it, you need to go through the Casino carpark, continue through the dark (at night, because of the spooky ghost hotel La Mirage that went into liquidation in April 2017, the lighting is limited enroute to the restaurant) and up around the corner where they have their own carpark that has lighting.

Again we arrived without a reservation, but happily they were able to accommodate us - even though we could see it was popular!

Once they realised our French was poor they whipped out English copies of the menu.... then what to choose!!! So many and all sounded divine! Opted for a scallop one and my husband a duck one - both were amazing!!

We shared a bottle of the house red with our crepes, and for once the total cost of our dinner was a lot more reasonable than the other evening meals we had!

They are open for lunch too, and it looks like they would have terrific views over Lemon Bay during the day.

Very discreet place which offers a nice view onto Lemon Beach and the ocean.
Dishes are very nice, prices are very reasonable and the service was all right.
No more, no less.

To reach there, you need to get the Ho Ho bus which stops at the Aquarium, from there walk up to the Casino Royale and enter the small street going up the hill.

Not the easiest of places to find but if you walk up the hill (through the hotel complex at the bottom) you come upon this unassuming place with an amazing view! It was early lunchtime & hardly anyone there so we were served quickly. Staff were not exactly friendly but the Panda crepes and ice cream sundae arrived pronto and tasted delicious. Thoroughly recommendable
