This creperie is very nice and delicious. I've tested a lot of creperies in France and this one is as good as it gets :)

The galettes and crepes at Le Merlin are delicious. I am gluten intolerant and to have the galette option is brilliant. The combinations and flavours are spot on!
Service could be improved when it is busier but the team are friendly and welcoming.

We had a delicious Sunday evening dinner at Le Merlin. I highly recommend it as an authentic French crepes restaurant. The menu is traditional but also creative. Perfect for the vegetarians in our group as well.
We hope to return soon.

Found Le Merlin on website recommending top restaurants suitable for people with Coeliac disease. It was absolutely amazing, staff were super friendly and we had the best coffee and crepes we’ve ever had, living next to France I’ve eaten a lot of crepes but these were by far the best. Both the savoury and sweet crepes tasted great and can’t wait to go back!

SO RUDDY GOOD. Especially the apple, salted caramel butter and cinnamon sweet. It would be well helpful if they looked into some dairy alternatives too to match their gluten free crepes, beer too!

Quality, authentic buckwheat galettes and crepes in a relaxing and cosy restaurant. The mushroom and gruyere galette is spot-on.

Amazing crepes and galettes. We had the complete galette and goats cheese with bacon and caramelized pears galette , plus the lemon sugar crepes. Everything was done right, even my French friend was impressed! Only negative is that it is a very small space, so you have to book, and even then they might put 3 people at a table for 2. It was a bit hectic when we went, so I wouldn't try going back when it's busy, but otherwise really delicious.
