This restaurant is popular with the college students and the regulars, also usually some rowdy drinking crowds. The menu has mainly a choice of an expensive or a cheap 3 course meal. While handing you candy on your way out and offering a free cherry liqeur after dinner, they can't make up for the constant slips in customer service or... More

We have dined in some amazing places but L'auberge des 7 plats took us to culinary heaven in one evening. Friday night of the Le Mans Classic, the only booking we could get was 10:15pm but this suited us as we wanted to stay at the track as long as possibly, the maitre d' squeezed us in as it was...

We picked Le Mans as our stop off so we could re-visit this super restaurant and we were not disappointed. The service was efficient and friendly as expected , my starter of Andouille sausage with forme d'ambert cheese was delicious - not always an easy choice as Andouille can be a little "whiffy" in some places but not here ,...

Was in Le Man's on business with 3 Italians and 2 French people. The menu was in French but I do have a very small knowledge of the French language. Had L' Escargo (snails) which I have not had in a long time. My main course was a duck dish served on 2 fried potato patties with pepper source and... More

The atmosphere is very nice and the staff gives great attention to their guests. The traditional French style food is enhanced by the Chef's touch. The quality/price ratio is very good but we remove one star because the place is a little noisy when full.

My wife and I went to this restaurant T lunchtime to celebrate my birthday. It was absolutely excellent ! The food was first class and excellent value for money. It is always busy and you need to book in advance but it's well worth it. And located in a lovely building in the old town of Le Mans adds to... More

We visit this restuarant every time we are in Le Mans, if we can get a table! It is very popular with locals and visitors alike who undoubtably return, as we do, for the quality of the food. The steaks are without doubt the best and most tender I have tasted anywhere. The cost is reasonable and they are one... More

August 2013. For Le Mans, I guess, it is pretty good, especially as there aren't that many options anyway. The food was good, but why serve food from Perigord? This is la Sarthe and there is plenty of great local food here (I grew up here). It is so NOT original, but people are queuing out the door! I can't... More

Located in the heart of the magnificiently restored Plantagenêt city of Le Mans, in a XVth century house, this small restaurant offers an unbelievable lunch menu at unbeatable prices. I never go elsewhere now for lunch when in Le Mans. The steak can be cut with a fork it is so tender, and extremely tasty, the mushroom purée is the... More
