Simply the best!

I can easily see why La Baraque a Boeuf gets its no. 1 ranking in Le Mans. It really is sublime. Set in a lovely square in the old quarter and serving the best beef I have ever tasted. The beef brochette was so tender you could eat it with a spoon. And likewise so was the Beef Pave. Very... read more

Wonderful meal but make sure you book as this restaurant is very popular with the locals. You have a choice of eating outside, under cover, or inside. Inside is very atmospheric as the building is medieval. Always a warm welcome from the staff and patron, excellent service. parking can be a challenge although the tram stops nearby.

We are two perfect parvenues and we decided to go eating to "la baraque à boeuf". The service is perfect and the waiters are very kind toward you, even if you show yourself as the parvenue you are. The quality of the dishes is excellent: we have never eat a beef so good (but we are parvenue: maybe you have).

Once you've eaten here you'll understand why this is rated #1 restaurant in Le Mans. The beef was sooooo tender and the sauces exquisite! If you are ever in Le Mans or even driving by, STOP!... and have a meal here! You will thank me :)

Worthy of its ranking. We had no reservation but went around 1900 and scored an outside table. Food delicious and service courteous and timely. Did see many turned away but those arriving after 2030 had more luck so the advice is either book or come early or quite late.

Well this did live up to the reviews. We booked in advance. Good job too as we lost count of how many people got turned away. We portions were generous and the food quality exceptional. We both ordered the brochette of beef for main course. The menu said 'guaranteed to be very tender'. They weren't lying. My beef (served rare)... More

Food quality is beyound expectation! The menu selection, temperature and preparation of the dishes impecable. I had to go there two nights in a row and order the same dish to make sure. It's almost unbeliavably delicious! A good wine selection wraps a memorable package. Definitely #1 in Le Mans, and certainly amongst the best overall !

I have never reviewed a restaurant twice, however we had reason to visit La Baraque a Boeuf twice this week. Once for dinner and again two days later for lunch and had such great experiences I thought a follow up review was needed. As another reviewer has pointed out it is essential to book, usually well in advance. Well worth... More
