SquareMeal Review of
Tucked away down olde-worlde Artillery Passage, this cosy all-dayer is a modern take on a Breton crêperie. Tightly-packed tables, candlelight and a neutral colour palette of greys and oak wood add to the romantic factor, while charming young French staff are a further draw. The menu menu of traditional crêpes and galettes come with some not very traditional fillings. Witness the ‘maki’ rolls: a tray of six perfectly formed rolled galettes, each concealing a gently smoky sliver of smoked salmon, a dab of crème fraiche and punchy capers.
To follow, full-sized galettes take centre stage, with options including a sweet helping of confit duck leg with caramelised pear, or a veggie-friendly mushroom fricassee, stuffed with spinach, heaps of mushrooms, stringy melted parmesan, and all pepped up with lightly-spicy chimichurri sauce. Desserts include a tooth-achingly sweet banana and peanut crêpe with lashings of warm caramel, while the cocktail list features a refreshing Pommeau Spritz (calvados and cider with apple juice). Post-dinner, those looking to get battered can head to Le Moulin, the intimate in-house bar.
