“simply want to have crepe in France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is one of the restaurant listed by Rick Steve's 2012 Paris. We are happy that we tried it out.

It is about 10-min walk from the Versailles station (PER C). You may need to look up its location before hand to find it.

It offers good varieties of crepes with meat and sweet types. It has a set menu for about 12 EUR for a great value (even for Paris) which includes a cider (be careful, don't get drunk), crepe (with meat), a sweet one and a cup of coffee. Can't beat that price, right? Even without ordering the set menu, the price is still reasonable.

The menu is in both French and English in small font. The service is a little under-staffed, but I figure it is the take-it-easy leisure style even though tourists are often short of time. You can see the crepe being made in the front of the store. There is also an outside seating (longer wait). If you do sit inside, avoid sitting to the left of the room (facing in). Somehow, many customer visit the bathroom right next to it.

When we were there, there are a few tables with grandmom with daughter and granddaughter. We enjoyed watching the families and made us feel this is a restaurant for local as well.

The crepes were good and good size so one can had it as a light meal.

It is a good stop for us before the hectic Versailles visit.

“Very good & very rough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

If you're searching for a good typical Breton crepe or galette in Versailles this is the right place.
The atmosphere is quite rough and easy but the food is very very good.
I tried this place twice and if i come back in Versailles i'll return back for sure.

“Good crepes but not a very hygien place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Good crepes and galettes, a little bit too expensive for the quality.
Inefficient service, you have to wait a long time for your food!
Last time we found a burning insect in one of our galettes. The restaurant finally did not charge for this galette, but we basically lost appetite because of that. So if you do not mind poorly hygien food, you may try it.

“Wonderful Crepes, disappointing service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

We have been to this restaurant several years running and find the crepes excellent. Despite booking in advance we were kept waiting even though there were tables empty. The food is wonderful but the service was even more off hand than we remembered. When we did get a table we were kept waiting again, before they took the order, then the crepes arrived followed by later by the wine - it would have been nice to have a drink while we were waiting. Think about the food and you wont be disappointed.

“Great crepes in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

Ates here twice during our long weekend. The savoury and sweet crepes were very good as was the cider that was recommeded to be drunk with them. The service was a bit offhand and the restaurant was a little understaffed, but overall it was a good experience.
