It has been a few years since I last ate here, and I cannot figure why I waited so long. I went last Sunday (22 January) at noon, and was greeted by a charming young lady who allowed me to pick my table. The galette was superb and the service outstanding. It is such a comfortable creperie; very traditional, and... More

We tried out this crêperie in Rennes because it is recommended in the Lonely Planet. The restaurant is furnished in Breton traditional style, is very cozy but lovely. Crepes are very good, we tasted two galettes sarasin, two sweet crepes, and drunk two cider bottles and sink water. Bill was 38.50€

We were only able to stop by quickly but the flambe crepe was wonderful and the guests around us had crepes that looked amazing. Better than any crepe we had I Paris hands down!

It is said the No. 1 crepes restaurant. We try crepes with sweet sause. Frankly speaking, it is not as good as we expected. In our hotel breakfast, we also have the same crepes. We can not find major difference between those two restaurants

I love a good creperie, and this definitely is one. I visited 4 years ago in October time and plan to visit again soon. The little restaurant is one of many little ones along this street, but I'm glad I entered this one. It's so beautiful inside, the waitress was very nice (way back when!) I remember that I had...

We had a lovely lunch here and service was friendly and very fast. We had cider, a savoury crepe each and a dessert crepe each. Everything was made fresh and the savoury crepe included a salad. The dessert crepes included homemade caramel (au beurre sale) sauce that was really a treat. Bill was about Euros 39.

Realy nice restaurant with excellent gallettes and ice creams. I had a pancake with eggs and some kind of a cheese, after that I tried some ice creamed gallettes. Simply brilliant. The restaurant is located in the heart of the city. It has got a two floor, we had our meal upstairs. It's like old-fashioned interior, the service was pretty... More

Two beautiful crepes, cider and coffee in a cramped but busy restaurant. The wait was lengthy but worthwhile.

The service was painfully slow the night we went. At one point, the waitress had to reassure us that she hadn't forgotten us. Normally that would annoy me but it's a small restaurant staffed by two women. One cooks and the other serves people on two floors. We were patient and rewarded with delicious savory and sweet crepes. They use... More

We spent 9 days in France trying this and that, mostly gourmet cuisine, very tired of pretentious and demanding atmosphere and the way meals looked like, in the very end... when we luckily came across this tiny place on a beautiful old street of Rennes only serving crepes, but serving so perfectly!! That's definitely the place to try what "galette"... More
