Description: Welcome to La Crêperie!Our restaurant was born in July 2007 in Shanghai. Its first aim was to bring the French community some of the most typical food from Brittany; what, as Bretons, we could only consider as a real lack in this huge city where we could already find a large variety of international cuisine… It was also our will to give the Chinese an opportunity to taste our authentic and original recipes.Today, not only the French but also many foreigners and more and more Chinese citizens are becoming regular customers. Coming to La Crêperie is about enjoying our great specialties of course. But we are also very pleased to introduce the Brittany region to the many travelers and dreamers visiting our place.This is why coming to La Crêperie is as if you were escaping from Shanghai for the time of your stay, enjoying our numerous very authentic galettes, crêpes and even fresh oysters from Riec sur Belon (famous in Brittany). You will also have the chance to drink various apple ciders while listening to Brittany traditional music in a friendly atmosphere and nautical decor.After Shanghai, Honk-Kong and Saigon were the other ports where La Crêperie decided to open. You will find there the same concept but you may discover other specialties from our region prepared by our Brittany Chef.So, if you are in Shanghai , Hong-Kong or Saigon, and willing to quit the busy and noisy life of the streets, look for the lighthouse, the symbol of Brittany that we borrowed to show you the way to safety and comfort…Welcome on board,Kenavo! The Team of La Crêperie

Hi there !

Thanks a lot for your nice review !
The "Marco Polo" crepe is indeed a very good option for the people who like to mix asian cuisine and traditional french crepes !
Sorry if sometimes the service is a bit slow, we are making the best we can and will try to get better next time you ll visit us !

Hope to see you soon.

Coming for Brittany, but living in China and South-Est Asia for 16 years, i tend to stay out of the foreign restaurant trend, since why travel so far if it is to only stick to western or hometown food recipes …

Nevertheless, it is also nice time to time to:
- Get a taste of home during a long stay abroad
- Get the chance to share your own food culture with some friends
- Change the routine …

I have been 15 / 20 times to “La Crêperie” since it opened and the main difference that I kind tell between a lot of foreign restaurants in Shanghai, is its stability in its atmosphere (very Brittany type), its food and beverage quality and last but not least, its service …

Concerning its atmosphere, the waiters have been “dressed” with a sailor touch which already bring a little something more … But also, the interior decoration would nearly make you forget that you are in Shanghai … Menus have also been designed in order to get out of the lot …

About food and beverages, I have never had any bad surprises and the first taste I had in 2007, is still the same today … As many restaurant, they must have a great turnover as well, but they have seemed to be able to keep the quality level in the kitchen …

The only time when we had an issue, was with the mussel menu … A slight problem with the cooking but the matter was not even discussed, since they changed immediately the dish and didn’t get into any long term discussion …

For the drinks, all are imported and correspond to every type of budget and also propose some rum arrangements, which aren’t typical Brittany style, but is a nice touch that we can find in many places in France …

The service is a strong point in my opinion: orders are quickly taken, the food and beverages on the table in a record time (of course, such dishes don’t need the same preparation as other French cuisine … But most important: they arrive at the same time for everyone and in the correct order … Never got my dessert first or at the same time, like it can happen sometimes in some restaurants …

The only downside would be that it has a limited seat capacity so it is necessary to make a reservation before, absolutely necessary on the weekends or delay your lunch or diner time …

Often after a lunch or diner in the French concession, we sometimes do keep a little space after our walk so we can have our dessert there, since for me, they have some of the best deserts in town …

Of course, all of this has a price and you don’t go there to eat on a daily basis, but for me, when you do is worth every penny … since most of the ingredients are imported …
