A must for lunch

Excellent food, very reaonable prices, spotlessly clean and........best of all a hospitable, friendly and very accommodating staff and management . A perfect place for an excellent lunch even if you cannot speak a word of French..... The crepes were so light that they were to die for!

Our galettes tasted great and so did cider. Our waitres forgot to place the order for dessert crepe so we finished it in a hurry but it tasted wonderful.

after an exhausting visit to the D-Day memorials this is the place to refresh, the food is delicious, the service is friendly and forthcoming, and you watch life in the pedestrian zone from a cozy corner. let yourself by spoilt by the padrone and his lady!

We ended up in this Creperie quite by chance to get away from the unseasonal rain and were so glad we did. The young lady serving was delightful and eager to help, the food was perfect from start to finish and the prices very reasonable. We will not hesitate to go again and strongly recommend you give them a try!

We have always enjoyed visiting this restaurant for lunch but yesterday we were disappointed to be turned away at ten to two and told that it was'finished' - even though there were people eating. When we walked back a good while later there were still people inside - apparently being handed menus! This is not the way to keep a... More

If you're looking for a light meal in a friendly and relaxed place, you can't go wrong here. The chef cooks to order and the crepes and galettes are terrific. Lots of traditional Normandy options - my favourite is the 'Arromanches' smoked salmon, creme fraiche and a healthy side of salad. The menu has great choices of salads, crepes, galettes... More

We had a wonderful family lunch here on Easter Monday. The galettes and crêpes are delicious - especially the Crêpe Normande for those with a bit of a sweet tooth and a healthy appetite. The service was outstanding (extremely friendly and helpful), especially by French standards, and the restaurant is very clean.

We had been in Arromanches before but I don't think this place existed then (or maybe we didn't see it before?). It's located in the small pedestrial street that is the extension of the souvenir street in Arromanches. The menu is small, there are galettes, saldas and crepes. We had one galette each one of us and they were very... More
