Wonderful

A really lovely experience in the centre of the old town. The food is exquisite and the service is truly superb. If planning to have a meal in Le Mans I recommend booking because even on a quiet Sunday night we were lucky to get a table.

We came here for lunch on the thursday of 24 Heures week and were not dissapointed! I had the duck and my dad had the beef - both were lovely. It was a little potato heavy - boiled potato, rosti and a side bowl of mash each, but apart from that no complaints. As it was lunch we went for... More

Either for lunch or dinner, the 7 plats is a great place with a good atmosphere and very good value menus. If you don't want expensive bottles of wine then try the carafe's of red, white or rose which I think are always good. You will be wise to book, especially in the evening . . . most of the... More

The 7 Plats is one of the best restaurants in Le Mans, they went out of their way to find us a table even though they were busy and turning people away. The service was excellent and the food as good as the TA rating

When come back, the meals were very good and perfectly cooked. Personnel was very friendly and meals were really awesome. The only bad thing was the cellar were we were sitting... More

This place is in the old medieval city of Le Mans. We managed to get a table without a reservation as the place was quite full (mostly all locals-big plus). The service was friendly and brisk. The menu offered many options and combinations. They stick to the 7 plates concepts and it works. I went with the house specialties and... More

When we arrived at the restaurant it was full. We were disappointed not having booked and thought we were going to miss out. However the staff made a plan and we got a small table downstairs. We found the staff really polite and friendly despite us barely being able to speak a word of French. The food was just heavenly.... More

I had a fabulous meal here with my two boys aged 11 and 14 eating from the euro 21.50 menu for 3 courses. Between us we had the fish and pork which were excellent! The puddings were fantastic especially the brioche and souffle. Service was exceptional and the cherry liquor at the end of the meal was wonderful end to... More
