I had dinner here with some guests over Le Mans 24 hour weekend. Town was crowded but we had made a prior reservation for seven. The restaurant is very nice, food and wine are also excellent but overall I want to remark the extraordinary service provided by the owner and his wife.

4 of us went for a celebratory dinner after slumming it on chips and beer at les 24 heures. It was easy to book by email, even for what must be one of the town's busiest weekends. Decor is beige and bland but the flowers were sophisticated. The meal didn't disappoint, with the amuse bouches, puddings and cheese all highlights.... More

We ate here during Motogp weekend. It is stylishly decorated, quite contemporary. The staff were really polite and friendly, the service was excellent. The food was without question one of the best meals I have ever had, beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and tasted so good you never wanted it to end.

I stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting the absolute gem of a medieval city in Le mans. This restaurant should have a Michelin star. The Breast of Veal was a revelation, simply melted in the mouth. Lunch time has a limited menu of 3 starters, mains and desserts for 40 euros. Having dined in some of the best restaurants in...

Rather disinterested welcome, carried throughgout the service. Cannot remember a smile. Very formal, white table-cloth type establishment. Very soul-less. Not bad cooking but very nineties...it's as if more contemporary cooking style had not happened. Good wine list, especially Loire at very fair prices, but they still managed to get the bill up to nearly €200 for three. Overall, a diappointment.... More

This restaurant is decorated in a modern style in shades of grey, with well spaced out tables. We were only the second table there - we booked for 8pm - but it soon became much fuller, with larger sized parties all speaking french. The cooking was excellent. The service, although friendly, became slow and a bit patchy. We found our... More

Was alrighty if you like the old food presented in modern form. Service was ok- good. Room was a bit dark and zero background music. I had: -confit duck samosa with salad (unecessarily drenched in an overly oily dressing as the duck confit deep fried samosa was already bien gras) -braised veal belly with new potatoes and bacon (which unfortunately...
