Nice setting, good cuisine, great service

Make sure you have a booking. Good location, central. Nice atmosphere. Cuisine and service are very good. We had an Entrecôte and a Tournedos and a whole fish, all cooked to perfection. Good selection of wines. Reasonable prices. Great service.

Very large restaurant at Central square. Modern interior with an odd mix of styles. We were on a Monday evening, almost no other guests. Food was very average. I ordered Duck breast, which came with a very average sauce. Desert is nice. You can choose 3 small deserts from a list, which come on one plate. But also with the... More

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...

One of the better restaurants in the square at Le Mans, recommended by locals. Food was of excellent quality, husband stopped just short of licking his plate clean :) Waiters were friendly, cheerful and patient - I speak French but couple next to us didn't, waiter was joking with them trying to teach them some words:) Also, lady didn't eat...

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
