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

Chartres is a lovely French town famous for its magnificent 12th century Notre-Dame Cathedral. This charming town has many great eateries. Golden rule to follow when you're in France is eat where the locals eat. Walking distance from the Cathedral is this wonderful Craparie, la Picoterie. Interior is pleasant old french look with mystic red wallpaper and very friendly staff.... More

Just down from the magnificent cathedral, this is nice convenient street-side creperie. Four of us enjoyed sitting outside for a most pleasant lunch. We had the tuna crepe, the vegetarian, and then for me the crepe with gorgonzola, ham, parmesan and sundried tomatoes. Oh boy, they were all so good, and at a most reasonable price. Service was excellent.

Just around the corner from The Cathedral is La Picoterie. Nice menu selection and excellent service. My wife had the Salade Gourmande and I the Croûte Biquette. Both were good size portions and very tasty. Outside seating is street-side along a one-way street that carries some (light) car traffic. If you sit at the outer most tables you might have... More
