Looking at the reviews on here, I feel I am committing a crime by placing an average the on this restaurant. We visited after the Drivers parade, everywhere was packed so we were lucky to get a table. We sat out at the back, on a terrace area, welcome relief after the noise with crowds and cars. Every table was... More

We looked around in Le Vieux Mans (the old part of Le Mans) and this restaurant´s menu pleased us most. Neighbouring restaurants have terraces in the streets, but La Fabrique has one at the back, surrounded by (the back of) old weaver houses. The terrace is built on different levels, so it always seems intimate. Large choice of salads, using... More

We had diner with 10 persons. The restaurant has a very cool terras 'inside' the restaurant. The service was very good. They work very hard to get all the food on time to all the customers. The menu is well balanced and tasts perfect. No complaints at all. The restaurant is worth visiting when you are in Le Mans.

Unpretentious La Fabrique is hidden away on a small street in Le Mans, with a pleasant garden in the back. Service was warm and friendly, our lunch delicious. Pass up the more prominent places with bigger signs and treat yourself to a relaxing Kir Pétillant before dining.

We breezed passed this place during the evening section of the Le Mans 24 Race - we didn't want to eat yet more campsite food. The three course set menu option at €20 did not disappoint. A good choice was available. I particularly enjoyed my chicken main course and the chocolate dessert. The French really know how to cook! Service... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The terrace is a great place to eat and the food was very enjoyable, service was excellent. We had a plate to share as a starter (on their suggestion) which was a brilliant idea as it let us try lots of different bits of food. Rest of the meal... More

On a Monday night, when a lot of restaurants are closed in the old town we decided to try this place. The restaurant has a nice outside sitting area but it was too cold to try it. We had the salade Lucette, the faux filet and the onglet. The steaks were cooked as ordered andwere both of good quality. The... More

We stopped in at this restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B host and were not disappointed. As it was a Sunday evening, this was one of the few restaurants open in the le Mans old town. After a delightful exploration of le mans old town, we went for a meal at La Fabrique. We were the first people to... More
