“Love this place pre/post show”

This place is great for lunch or dinner. Delish but simple fare and great french cider. If you go for lunch the best seat is the one by the street. You get to people watch and enjoy the yummy food and cider. A personal fave!

“Best Crepes in Auckland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We have been to Torchon a number of times and have always come away feeling really satisfied. We brought another couple with us on this occasion and they are now planning to go back and try the escargot, after enjoying the crepes.
What we really liked about this little restaurant is the very continental atmosphere and the fact that the (french?) waiter/waitresses are (always) friendly and pleasant if we are brave enough, we can practice our french with them !
Our favourite savoury is the pork sausages and our favourite dessert is the crepe with coconut and sugar and the Creme Brulee.

“Oh la la in Auckland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

These crepe's are FANTASTIC dare I say better than Paris!
I kept it simple and went with the Banana Chocolate - However, I asked for Nutella in lieu of the Chocolate and our server backed me on this decision. IT WAS FANTASTIC they did not skimp on the nutella or the banana. My husband had the Caramelized Apple with Cinnamon and Maple syrup. His feed back 'a little too sweet' however, I think it is only due to the fact that they did not SKIMP on the ingredients.... which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
And the vanilla ice cream - YOU MUST ORDER IT! you can tell that it is made with real vanilla beans.

If you are in AUCKLAND - ELLIOTT STABLES is a MUST for andy FOODIE!

“VERY GOOD CREPES”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We dined here recently and shared the Oceane (smoked salmon) and Forestierre (mushroom) crepes. Both were very good in taste and with generous portions. Crepes were buckwheat. The restaurant is casual and cosy - L shaped in the Elliott stable complex. Staff were friendly and service was very efficient. If you like crepes you will not be disappointed.

“wonderful crepes at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Torchon is a great little place with a modest decor and laid back atmosphere that offers a variety of tasty and filling crepes. The staff are very kind, happy and welcoming people and the food seems always fresh. All the crepes are interesting, although I found the mushroom one and the complete with avocado particularly nice. I've been to Torchon a few times now and it has always been a good experience with perhaps only one time when I was slightly disappointed by the fact that the avocado in my crepe was rock-hard.
