Looking for something a bit different and not too pricey in Nelson, we were welcomed in by the two very friendly waitresses - nothing was too much trouble. The food is delicious. We shared tasty gougeres to start, then gallettes, then sweet pancakes. There are meat and fish main courses on the a la carte menu as well as a... More

A really good restaurant, with typical French dishes and well done. The managers are really nice, and the 'crêpes blé noir' are really good. Nice !

A group of eight of us had a really good meal here. The service was a bit slow but that was probably as much our fault as their's as we were mixing starters and main courses. Wonderful galettes, better than some we've had in France. The menu is quite extensive with fish and meat dishes along with many galette/crêpe dishes.... More

Went here for Valentines Day Dinner - great food and service as usual - fish of the day superb! Have sampled many of the gallettes, great venue for vegetarians. All reasonably priced. Great wines too. Excellent staff too. My only very minor criticism would be they could do with expanding the bottled beer choice to include more local breweries and... More

A warm welcome and attentive service; this is a lovely relaxed French restaurant serving superb galettes and crepes during the day. Good wine and nice atmosphere - a favourite spot for us and our godchildren.

Great little French style bistro in the heart of Nelson. Coffee, French pastries, snacks and meals. One of our favourite local restaurants. Good for coffee or dinner. Local and French wines and cheese available. Nice decor too.

We dined here very early about 5pm and it was great. We started with the baked Camembert and it was amazing and perfectly goey. The nordict crepe was very fresh and filled with salmon and avocado. It was very flavoursome! The poulet was filled with chicken and very filling. The lady serving us was very nice even though we were... More

Very popular. Simple menu, but our dishes were all well cooked and delicious. Slow to be served but worth the wait.
