My wife was served vegetable soup which was inedible. We returned it to the kitchen. The remainder of the meal was ok, if somewhat overpriced. We were still charged for the soup and complained. Despite a crowded restaurant, the owner and waiter refused to budge. I asked them to call the police to show them I was serious. Finally, I... More

Great crepes, both savoury and sweet, all served with friendliness and good humour. I especially appreciated their willingness to adjust their recipes to my dietary requirements so that I could eat without worry. We sat at an outside table so we could enjoy the good weather and beautiful views of the cathedral -- a meal to remember!

Thanks to TA and word of mouth this place has a well deserved reputation so arrive just at opening if you want a table for lunch. It fills up fast ! Those of you who follow my reviews know lunch is my main meal when travelling. The galette Cocarnoise was copious and delicious: lots of salad, green beans, potatoes, sardines,... More

We've just eaten here based solely on the feedback on TA and we were not disappointed! Excellent friendly service and food. The salted caramel crepes are to die for! We will be going back for more at our next visit. Opens at 7pm so get there early as it was very popular. ..

The crepes were superb and the service was great. The restaurant is very close to the Cathedral in the old town.

We wanted a relatively quick meal before seeing the Lumieres. Just a short walk from the cathedral, this restaurant offered exactly what was wanted. The galettes were perfect and despite not really needing a pudding, I was persuaded by the waitress to try the salted caramel house special. It was unbelievably good. I'd thoroughly recommend this place - and full... More

Everything was delicious and our waiter was wonderful. Menus are available in English and our waiter was spoke perfect English. He was charmed by my insistence on using the French menu and brought me a little additional treat for my efforts.

We stumbled upon this delightful restaurant at lunchtime. Although very busy, they found us a table upstairs which felt like being in a French sitting room - beautifully decorated in red and cream. A wonderful selection of galettes and crepes, with good veggie options. The waiters were happy and welcoming. It was such a lovely atmosphere, we booked the same... More

We were on a Grand Circle tour that stopped in Chartres. Found this delightful spot for a delicious crepe lunch. Even though it was crowded, the service was fast.
