We had an excellent meal here on a Sunday lunchtime. Off the tourist street by the mairie, this is a little gem. Traditional French creperie, lovely welcoming service, delicious, simple meals cooked with good ingredients. Everyone (young children, teens and adults) was very happy.

Typical creperie that serves galletes, crepes, pasta and some more. We had 4 dishes and we really liked 2 of them. The third should have been warmer but the pasta carbonara was very bland.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at La Ripalle. There was plenty of choice, the food was well cooked and the service was friendly and efficient. What more could one ask for?
