We had a late lunch after visiting the fortress and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The waitress was excellent. Fun and encouraging of our poor French. Would definitely recommend it. We tried both both the galettes and the gratin and couldn't fault either the quality or price of the meal

Very good creperie in the old part of Chinon. Simple decor and menu, good range of traditional, artisan and contemporary galette and crepe fillings. Very good quality food. Good service. Probably above average prices but worth it given quality and in a touristy area.

This is a small cozy restaurant which serves only crepes and ommels and a few simple salads. I had a crepe filled with creamed spinach and goat cheese which was excellent . They also have desert crepes. Good value. Friendly, quiet, popular.

Got exactly what we were looking for. Crepes with fresh ingredients and service with a smile. We don't speak French and it didn't matter. Kind and cheerful waitstaff. Outside seating. Wines and beer. Easy to find.

Delicious and one of the friendliest waitresses we ever came across in France. Having to order something outside of the menu due to food allergy, was solved creatively with a huge smile. This creperie is on favourite list of places to revisit.

Very friendly creperie in street opposite the bridge. Nice quick service and very tasty too. Boys (9 and 11) ate the lot and happily had room for the superb sorbets. Just watch your head if you use the toilet.

Very friendly service from the waitress, and the chef. Good range of fillings, including for vegetarians. My galette had a great spinach filling (often spinach is overcooked). Our crêpes were interesting/delicious without being sweet. My partner much enjoyed her dry cider. Great lunch on a hot day.

My wife and I have been to this "Creperie" many times over the years through several different owners. The theme is medieval/Plantagenet with music to fit! The food does not look very filling, but it certainly is. The set menu at 14.50€ was very good value and cider makes a pleasant alternative to wine which is also available. It is... More

My daughter and I decided that crepes were the order of the day for lunch today, our third day staying in the delightful town of Chinon. We checked a couple of sources, tripadvisor being one, and thought that this establishment ticked all the boxes. Unfortunately, crepes were not listed on the menu, and when I said "crepes" in a questioning... More
