The food was very nice although personally 3 courses is too much for me . Service was fairly quick and the menu was in english at the door which was helpful if you are a little rusty with your French. Wine was expensive for what it was but we were on holiday . Nice to sit outside and the waitress... More

Pros: Very good food at a reasonable price. Helpful and friendly staff. After a short time it became very busy so it is advisable to book. Cons: Wine rather expensive as only available in bottles. On the night we were there, the service was extremely slow.

This little French restaurant was recommended by the owner of our B&B and was a good tip. Tucked away from the main bustle of Le Mans, it was not hard to find from where we parked the car next to the church. The clientele was predominantly French, always a good sign when visiting a restaurant. The meals were well presented... More

I found this place by accident, while I was looking for a restaurant suggested by my hotel. The girl of a small shop suggested me to go there with a few simple words: "The other one is a tourist trap". We followed his advice, also because our two 30 months sons were screaming for food, and we did the right... More

The menu at first look at the price of 20 or 30 euros pp (3 or 4 courses) looked very amazing. The wonderful terrace setting on a summer evening was welcoming. we weren't disappointed by food at all but it did not meet our expectations from what we read on menu. But the comparison in not fair, as my expectations... More

Up in the heart of the medieval part of the city of Le Mans, tucked away just on the edge of a back street, is this excellent little restaurant. Only the width of a standard shop front and squeezed onto two floors (plus a street seating area for the summer) this restaurant punched well above its size for quality, taste... More
