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.

We loved this restaurant. Excellent service, english menus and great food. The combinations for crepes, both savory and sweet were so creative and delicious. And the ambiance, with its red toile wall coverings and red and cream colored tablecloths was beautiful. Just steps away from the cathedral, an easy choice.

Le Picoterie must be one of the best creperies you'll find anywhere. A wide selection of mouth-watering crepes, savoury and sweet. Friendly and fun, I'd recommend this for families and business. The service was excellent

We visited on a Monday lunchtime, and it was almost but not quite full. Service was still amazingly fast, and our selections from their vast range of crepes were delicious, and generous with fillings. The friendly owner speaks excellent English, and an English menu is available, so no worries there, either.

It's no secret that the town of Chartres is so charming and quaint, but we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into La Picoterie for lunch. Although this restaurant is close to the cathedral, it doesn't have the feel or attitude of a touristy restaurant. It was very busy, but we were immediately greeted and taken to a table. The... More

The place was choc - a-bloc which speaks for itself. You will get crepes of all sorts. I went for a sweet crepe which I loved and my husband went for a savoury duck's meat crepe which he did not like. The cider was good . Staff friendly and ambience ok . It would have been better had there been... More

My husband and I completed a tour of the cathedral and were wandering around the old city. We were hungry but hadn't really researched any lunch place in Chartres. Rule of thumb for us is to find a places that are generally busy. Creperie La Picoterie was busy and menu looked interesting. Greeted by a friendly server, we were asked... More
