Restaurant Review-Montreuil-Bellay

Creperie – Grill, L’escalier Saint Pierre – 25 Place du Narché.   Up to the end of last year, if you were around the Place du Narché around 1830 in the evening you could often see  a diminutive Asian woman with a big plastic carrier bag stomping methodically from the car-park in front of the Chateau to her tiny Chinese take away in the square. The carrier bag, one assumes, carried all the ingredients for thAuberge L'Escallier St Pierre, Montreuil-Bellaye evening’s culinary masterpieces. It was a true example of the triumph of hope over reality and it was quite clear that the carrier bag was carrying less and less ingredients, even to the extent that, if you happened to see her leaving,  you could not help but notice that sometimes the bag seemed fuller than when it arrived!  Eventually, she realised that operating a restaurant without customers, is actually quite difficult to do and she sold her enterprise to the restaurant next door, which now occupies a delightful position, having a double frontage with chairs and tables clustered around the small pretty fountain in the square. Food is the sort of good quality, competitively priced simple meals which is so difficult to find in the UK; Crépes, Gallettes, (sweet and savory filled pancakes), Grills and Salads. The fixed price menus are very well priced, the decor is pleasant and authentic and the service friendly, polite and helpful.   To see all our local restaurant reviews click here
