We wanted something light and cool on a hot afternoon... Le Savanah was the answer! This is the place to go for desserts and crepes. My crepe was covered in fruit with chocolate sauce and chantilly cream- perfect! It was basically a fruit salad on...More

Sadly the staff is always a bit rude and prices too big for small portions. Also, the hours are always too strict. Can't walk in at any time... (Is it for tourist or not ?!)

Nice little place for a drink and a snack. Food consists of crepes, ice cream or salad. Not the best I've eaten but not exactly the worst. Nice little place.

The restaurant looks very nice and is actually very sweet. But the crepes are just horrible. Put one egg some milk and some flour together and believe me you will get something much better than that. The hot chocolate, however, is really good.

Nice place for a little tea break. Do not expect anything fantastic but the tea is good, the crêpes are good and the atmosphere relaxing. Service can be a bit slow.

Late afternoon on a hot day, tried to stop and have a beer. Told this was a restaurant and didn't serve beer ( I guess without food) despite lots of other people apparently having a tea or coke or other drinks. In 3 weeks in...More
