“Charming and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We enjoyed lunch here on May 12 after visiting the Sunday art marché on the median plaza of blvd Edgar Quinet (right at the metro stop). We found the décor delightful, especially the tables with Quimper painted designs. We had visited the Quimper faience factory years ago and it brought back memories of Brittany. The restaurant serves galettes (savory fillings) made with buckwheat flour and crepes (sweet fillings) made with wheat flour, both are biologique (organic). We chose ham, egg and cheese galettes. They were perfectly cooked with the filings peeping out of the middles of the crispy thin galettes. For 15 euros for 2 galettes, our lunch was a bargain even with an added a pitcher of wine. We’ll go back.

“Tasty crepes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Service was patchy, as mentioned by some of the other reviewers, however, the crepes were delicious. There are lots of creperies in the Montparnasse but we only tried this one. Perhaps there are better nearby. Decor could do with a spruce-up; it's a little tired. Drinks are limited too, especially wine selection. Staff were friendly enough though when they did give attention.

“Horrendous Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011 via mobile

As there were no seats available outside, we were asked to be seated inside. We were not shown to the seats. Therefore we just picked seats that was able to park the stroller. My husband left the camera on the table and went out to tend to the baby.

As I was trying to park the stroller, the waiter came to rearrange the tables to create more space. No complains about that and totally understand that. However, she was showing a sour face that we were eating up the space and roughly pushed the tables together. While doing that, the camera fell off the table.

The camera lense broke and I showed it to her, she looked at me and raised her hands saying sorry in a reluctant way with the look that you should not have brought the stroller in the first place. Not wanting to make a big fuss we left.

I fully understand how crowded it was. However, would appreciate better service, ie in the other restaurants we have been to, the waiter would 1. Show us to seats that can accommodate the stroller, or 2. Ask whether it is possible to wait until there is space, or 3. Ask to fold up the stroller.

The most shocking part is that not only were they rude, they did not even care to make up to it for the broken lense. Luckily, only the lense cracked.

“Horrible staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011 via mobile

This restaurant looks pleasant from the outside, but we were very quickly disappointed: the decor is tacky and old-fashioned and the atmosphere freezing thanks to the staff joke between themselves and are unpleasant in the worst possible way. We also overheard them joking about a customer once she had left. They offer you you crepe without a smile and without any eye contact, in an unpleasant manner. And if that isn't enough to put you off, the crepes are average but very greasy!
