We Will Definitely Return to La Picoterie.

There is every reason to visit this restaurant. We were there for lunch on or about May 19, 2015. On our next visit to Chartres we will try it for dinner too. There is a lively hospitality here as well as very good food. We felt most welcome. We are normally with a small group of six people... read more

Had soup of the day - courgette gazpacho! -different. The waiter did point out that it was a cold soup, so full marks. Croute was OK and the recommended crepe nice. With aperitif, wine and coffee €54.

During our two-day visit to Chartres, we had the opportunity to enjoy this place. It seems to be a preferred restaurant by the locals and it is always rather crowded. My wife was delighted with her duck main dish, and I was very happy with my salad and onion soup. The service was very good, the food was just delicious.... More

We turned up on a Saturday night without reservation and the restaurant was packe. We were however, able to take a table and the service we received was friendly and efficient. The crepes were amazing and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant. Extremely close to Chartres cathedral where we witnessed some amazing 'son et lumiere' afterward. The restaurant is...

This restaurant is so efficient that a reservation for lunch for 30 people, made just that morning, was readily accepted and the warm, friendly staff made us all welcome. The crepes were spectacular, as always, and I, for one, ate too much! This restaurant is always good value for money and worth a visit from local and visitor alike!

Having lived in Chartres for two years, we can confidently say that this is our favorite restaurant. The everyday food is always good, and their specials and holiday fare can be superb. However, the most notable feature of the restaurant is their fantastique, bilingual, service. Tremendous.

The Picoterie is a fantastic buzzing little resraurant tucked away in a side street that leads to the stunning cathedral of Chartres. Having moved to Chartres in October and eagerly searching for the best crêpes, everyone reccommended 'La Picoterie'. I was so impressed! The service is wonderful and friendly despite the fact that the place is constantly buzzing with customers,... More

We had a great waiter who spoke English and suggested a cider to match our savory crepes. The chocolate orange dessert was wonderful. We enjoyed our meal & this restaurant a great deal.

I loved the large selection of crèpes offered in this restaurant. Within tiptoeing distance of beautiful Chartres cathedral, this restaurant offers delicious food, large portions and fast, efficient service by friendly, multilingual staff. A real delight and definitely worth visiting again!

We looked forward to the great tasting crepes we read about on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, despite email reservations and confirmations, it was closed when we arrived at 5:00, the time of our reservation, in mid-October. Worse, the man who answered the door, and was shown the confirmation email, tried to argue with me that it was somehow our fault! We... More
