We come here to get our galettes and crepes washed down by a pichet of cider and enjoy the bustle of a little harbor tucked away from the maddening crowd. We are never dissppointed.

We were headed for somewhere else when somebody recommended this place, so we had a look. We were rewarded with excellent galettes and crepes. Friendly and efficient staff helps a lot. We would like to have eaten on the terrace but it was not possible, but I have no hesitation in giving this place top marks.

This is an excellent restaurant with great staff from top to bottom. Their menu is thorough, but difficult with our pathetic French. Having said that our chef salad and galette was outstanding and we were real impressed watch others being served.

After a bad start (the owner was not happy that we wanted to choose our table) we had a good time there, good and relatively affordable simple food. However service was a little too long.

This restaurant serves crepes, both savoury and dessert. It is set on a picturesque Vendee road, a short walk from the quay of Le Meule on the Ile d'Yeu. Reservation for meal times is essential. The welcome is genuine, in spite of the numbers crowding in and the damp state of those who had been swimming. The menu is extensive. It took some time to translate the ingredients of each galette, and equally as long to make one's choice. The accompanying salads were crisp and fresh and natural. The galette comprised a square savoury crepe, filled with ground meat with supporting ingredients, and in most cases, a green salad. Vegetarians are catered for by the Chef's Salad and other concoctions. The galettes were delicious, and not too large to blunt the appetite for the sweet crepes that followed. The dessert crepes were mainly fruit based. The Martiniquaise came with a layer of split almonds and two scoops of creme fraiche. The two dishes averaged E17 per person, a reasonable cost for a filling meal. Service was prompt and pleasant, with grandchildren receiving patient care. Speaking of grandchildren, the toilet cubicles were meticulously clean despite the large numbers using them. Le Vagabond is a great place to savour local food after a morning exploring this area.
