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

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. ..
