Le Fooding (2013) “The little bites are wonders: Albacore tuna from the île d’Yeu, little smoked trout terrine, blood sausage with onions from La Maison Galland in Touraine, authentic ham and Bordier butter sandwich. As for the nectars, glasses of red (Roussilon Tam-Tam du Domaine du Bout du Monde at €7 a glass) and white (Touraine Petit Buisson du Clos du Tue-Boeuf at €7 a glass).”

  1. I agree with the comments above. The place is very cute but the owner is surly and it’s expensive for what you get which adds up to mediocre experience.

  2. Last May I took the TGV up from Brittany, I was staying a block away, heard good things about La Cremerie, I was starved. I walked in, there were three couples in there. 2:45pm. The owner basically came up to me and said get out we’re closed. I said I’ve travelled a long way can I at least get a glass of wine?
    He refused. Then I asked if there was a similar place nearby, he told me about a place about six blocks away. I walked up there and it’s closed on Weekends. He had to have known that and purposely sent me on a wild goose chase. Walking back to Hotel de Fleurie I pass an Italian wine bar right next door. Two smiling Italians were out front and invited me in. Immediately there was a platter of Salumi, cheeses, and an excellent glass of wine. The place was stylish,inexpensive and better than many places I’ve visited in Italy. The name escapes me but its 2 doors down from the hotel and you could throw a rock from their front door to La Cremerie( which I felt like doing).

  3. Draconian hours are only the beginning. Overpriced appetizers and unsmiling, unfriendly staff. Wine was only okay, nothing special. Everyone in our party was happy to make a quick exit. Many, many much better experiences in Paris.
