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

Charming, genuine, excellent food, great selection. The owner greeted everyone with enthusiasm. From the number of people he greeted by name, we could tell this was a place locals went--always a good sign. It was easy to find lots of things of the menu without dairy, which I appreciated. Lots of fresh vegetables, well-prepared and delicious. Don't miss the French... More

The food was nothing astounding but perfectly acceptable, but at least they did serve some vegetarian dishes. The local cider was very good.

The only thing that keeps me from rating a 5 star is the fact that tables are quite close to each other and tables in the restaurant is quite dark (no window light). We came here with a group of friends, 8 people. As previous reviewers say, staff is very eager to serve and help in any way. Tables were... More

This creperie is right by the cathedral and is a great place to have lunch. It was very busy when we went but the service was fast and friendly. There is a wide choice of crepes and galletes.

We had lunch here yesterday before touring the Cathedral. I loved my goat cheese crepe with walnuts, salad and tomato salsa. Service was quick, and I got to drink coffee with my meal when I asked for it (no snooty looks, like I received in other places). It wasn't the best meal of my life, but it was perfect for... More

This is just down a street from the Cathedral square. We went in lunch time (don't know about evening opening) and what an excellent lunch it was. There is seating outside with a view of the Cathedral (but this fills up quickly), but more inside and even more upstairs. The place was quite busy, but run very efficiently with almost... More

This is sited very close to the cathedral. The service is superb - very friendly and welcoming waiting staff, and very quick taking of our order and delivery of our food. Being vegetarian, we sometimes struggle in French restaurants, but there were some very good choices here. The price is attractive too.

Very close to the Cathedral. A very busy place on a Sunday with many locals as well as tourists. Food reasonably priced, tasty and quick. Our waiter was excellent and spoke very good English. Can recommend the crepes. A little crowded with tables but things seem to work.

Our last meal before we headed for tne train. The fish soup is very hearty, omlettes tasty, crepe light and flavorsome, the tour bus loads where there so it was quite noisy, staff very friendly, service efficient and price reasonable and a good coffee just finished the meal off nicely, all at a very small table, we just squeezed in,...
