This restaurant turned out to be a real surprise. We went there because it was open on a Monday unlike most places. It turned out to be excellent. A good value menu at €22 with some unusual dishes on offer. The cooking was excellent, quite cordon bleu. Very popular with locals and good service despite there being a very large... More

It is at the centre of Le Mans. I came as a tourist. The food is delicious and the prices low. The service is excellent. I will visit the restaurant again.

We booked a table in advance, we arrived at 9.00 pm: the tables were narrow and small, the place was full. After 20 minutes we were able to place our order after calling a waiter several times, entrée arrived at 10.15 and after that another impossible wait, in the meantime we asked for at least some bread which was thrown...

Have been using this restaurant for the past 2 years whilst staying in Le Mans on our trips back and forth to Spain. No matter which night we visited the restaurant it was always busy. Usually have the special 3 course dinner at 19.50 euros a head, excellent value and plenty of choice for starters and mains. Staff attentive and... More

The food is great. I took a saku de thon (some tuna carpaccio, very nice) as a starter, dos de St Pierre (John Dory back) as a main course and assorted cheese for desert. Everything I can recommend. Especially John Dory which is one of the tastiest fishes I ever tried. Prices are reasonable. Main course is 20 euro. There... More

On recommendations of other reviewers, we went, ate a wonderful meal and shared dessert and we were not disappointed. Even the house wine was great! Great value and mains around €18

Thoroughly enjoyable food, service and atmosphere - though got a bit warm under the llights - they could do with lower wattage bulbs! Waiters were attentive, friendly and really helpful We found this place at lunch time and there was a great table that would fit 10 of us available that night so we came back and ended up bringing...

We had dinner at la villa - it was sooooo good that we decided to have desert to enjoy the place just a little bit longer. You never eat alone here and you just understand why that is when you dine here.
