Mussels and crepes

The food is very well prepared with quite a bit of variety. I was dining with vegetarians and there was something for everyone. The place is very small (cozy), so you may have to wait, but it is worth it.The chef actually solicited specific comments, rather than the generic "how was everything"

This is an excellent little place for brunch and dinner in Astoria. I live three blocks away and my wife and I have been here maybe 5 times with excellent experiences each time. It seats about 15 people in a tiny little dining area that is high on charm but low on frills. My wife and I love their crepes,... More

A classic French bistro, from the buckwheat crepe options--both savory and sweet--to the mussels, to the croque monsieur ou madame. The service was, however, much friendlier than in any French restaurant I've experienced. All the food was delicious, but the real standout was the dessert crepe with lemon, butter, and fruit compote. It was so good it vanished in no... More

OH MAN... what would I do without you in my life!! First off, I absolutely LOVE the male waiter that works there- his recommendations are wickedly good and he's very entertaining/nice. They have specials everyday and I love the chicken/sausage wrapped in a Phillo dough. (Foodgasm) The breads are freshly made by the chef daily. French onion soup is exactly... More

My buddy who traveled to Paris often for business, asked me if I wanted to have lunch at this crepe restaurant. I had the buckwheat crepe with aged goat cheese, and he had the same with swiss and mushrooms. We enjoyed the food and found the cuisine quite lovely , but the young girl who served us just had no...

Loved the crepes, both sweet and savory! You have to remember it is cash only, although this isn't hard as all the staff wear shirts that say "Cash Only Please".

The flags of Brittany caught our eyes as we passed, and we stopped because, well, how many Breton restaurants are in the US? Fabulous choice. Small, but lovely service, limited menu, but perfect food. I had the warm Chicory salad with blue cheese and bacon, topped by the most beautiful and tasty poached egg I have ever had. Select choice... More

This place is unbelievable. The food is so delicious, I drool thinking about the next time I'll go for some more. Service is casual and attentive. There is even two little tables outside, which is wonderful. Keep up the good work!

This place is a real gem, 20min from time square but for half the price as in downtown area, we had the best French food we ever had in new york.

By far some of the BEST French cuisine I have ever had in the U.S.! The French Onion soup is phenomenal, Duck Confit over gratin potato special was to die for and the dessert crepes are amazing. I would definitely come back here time and time again. The dining room is very small and intimate but very much to my... More
