Reasonably expensive but beautiful food and super friendly service. Good menu and wine list. Recommend you book in the evening.

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...

The food at this restaurant was very good. We did not have a reservation but the restaurant was able to seat us. I would recommend it. The service was good and the prices were quite reasonable. The decor was a gray or a gray green tone on tone.

We stopped here on our way to St Malo for a latish supper and we were warmly welcomed. The food is quite good, with varied choices (I think even vegetarians could find nice choices on the small but eclectic menu) and the presentation is lovely. The service is impeccable as well, and prices quite reasonable. Our only reservation (and yes,... More

I was prompted to write a review about my experience at this restaurant after a terrible eating experience recently. At this latter event, I looked back to the excellent food and wine I had there. We booked casually and turned up without anything fancy. The first thing you notice is the rather minimalist surroundings and the monochromatic decor. A strange... More

Three of us chose the set lunch menu and were reasonably satisfied. Not traditional French Cuisine, it's more innovative than that. For example the Veal came with noodles and my main course ( fish ) was slightly curry flavoured. The desserts were extremely good. The wine list is quite compact, but we found a good red Sancerre. The service was... More
