What began as a takeaway Creperie is now a truly French Bistrot (spelled the correct Breizh way) bursting with authenticity and presenting classic French dishes in a relaxed and friendly environment. Gourmandine is open for morning treats, lunch,and afternoon patisserie. We will also open evenings by special arrangement for private parties of 20 to 25 people. Come in and see why we're no longer the best kept secret in Exeter, and discover what a real French Bistrot is!

Traditional French crêpes

We had some excellent crêpes in this lovely spot of Exeter (in a pedestrian street), as good as those you can eat in France.

This is our go-to place for light lunches and coffees in the city centre. The staff are patient and friendly, and are more than happy to adapt their menu choices to suit your needs. The manager is attentive and remembers a customer after just one visit! Food quality is always high, especially with crepes, and the options and variations make... More

Because this restaurant does not open in the evenings, I deliberately organised my day to have lunch. I had a buckwheat savoury main with a sweet crepe for desserts, with a glass of local cider. All was pleasant enough, including the service, but quite frankly, after all the hype reviews, it didn't knock me out of my socks. Good but... More

Stopped here for lunch. It was busy, which we thought was a good sign - excellent, friendly service. This place is really authentic. We had a soup and a croque madame, and both were excellent - simple French coming at its best, using great quality ingredients. Priced well. We will definitely return for lunch in the future.

My girlfriend and I visited here as she's got a love for pancakes. We loved every minute of our time visiting here. We were particularly impressed with the friendly and welcoming nature of the staff. Will be visiting again!

I had such a lovely brunch here that I came back the next day! The crepes are very tasty, the service is friendly and quick, and it's a lovely little place with a nice outdoor patio and a pretty view onto the cathedral green. I had "La Canadienne" crepes with Bananas and Strawberries and a hot chocolate - all were... More
