The Marais

With its modern interior of pale wood and its choice of 15 artisanal ciders, this outpost of a restaurant in Cancale, Brittany, is a world away from the average crêperie. For the complete faux-seaside experience, you might start with a plate of creuse oysters from Cancale before indulging in an inventive buckwheat galette such as the Cancalaise, made with potato, smoked herring from Brittany and herring roe. The choice of fillings is fairly limited, but the ingredients are of high quality - including the use of Valrhona chocolate with 70% cocoa solids in the dessert crêpes.

SMALL CAFE, NOISEY, OVERPRICE, BAD SERVICES, POOR MANAGEMENT,BAD CREPES !

NOT RECOMMENDER !!!

Andrew

The best crepes I have ever had. To be honest, I didn't know crepes could be so good! So good, in fact, that having been taken aback by a stellar dinner my friend and I had to go back the very next day for (my birthday) lunch. We'd probably have gone again for dinner if we didn't already have a reservation elsewhere. I can't fathom the apathy of the previous commenter - this creperie definitely deserves the praise and I can't recommend it enough.

I possibly made a poor choice, but going for a classic cheese crepe with an egg on top seemed to be straight-forward enough. My 10-year old daughter went for the same but with ham. The crepes were good, but no better than anywhere else. In fact, I often holiday in South-West France and the crepes that you buy on the markets in that part of the world are less than half the price and possibly twice as good. The service was good and the cider lovely. The place is not too expensive, but is it really any better than numerous other creperies? I think not. I would suggest that ‘Timeout’ has fallen into the ‘this is a very trendy place trap’ and is therefore ‘good’. A ‘world away from the average creperie’, … not really. Not a bad place, but not worth going out of your way for.
