Great bistro fare

Located in a medieval house in the old town, and with a very long history. They have a great bistro fare, and at affordable prices.

An excellent lunchtime meal, not booked in advance.The restaurant was already fairly full ,at 12.30, ( I would always suggest pre-booking) ,so we ended up in the cave. The atmosphere there was super.......decently decorated. The service was particularly good, and the meal was sublime. Completely recommended.

We've had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant last week. The atmosphere is great, we ate in what appeared to be an ancient cellar, with stone walls and retro decorations. We loved every minute of it, especially thanks to the staff who is simply amazing, always there for your every need without being too obvious in the same time.... More

We had dinner here on a return trip to the UK after reading the reviews and were very disappointed. Our table was in the basement which was nicely decorated but you could here the frantic clatter of staff rushing up and downstairs which did not help the romantic evening we had planned. The food was OK in flavour but unfortunately... More

We don't often go back to the same restaurant twice but we had to return to this one!! The service was impeccable - friendly and welcoming but not over familiar. The food was just brilliant - the best any of us have had in a long time! We went for the 22.90 euro menu and nothing disappointed. The choice was... More

No matter the day this restaurant is always full and this is not by chance. The restaurant offer a refined fixed menu at an extremely convenient price. There are 7 starters, 7 mains and 7 desserts to choose from. The choice is limited but the quality and presentation are like a Michelin restaurant. I had the Beef as a main... More

We had an amazing meal here tonight cooked by a chef who knows what he is doing. Beautifully served and generous portions of fresh food well cooked. The staff are friendly and welcoming and very efficient. I would suggest you book in advance as when we left people were queuing to get in. Great value for money and well worth... More

The food was excellent and 3 courses for just 21.90 euro amazing, it's the first restaurant I have seen customers waiting in the street to get in. The restaurant is in the old part of town which must date back to the 15 hundreds. If you want to eat here book early or be prepared to wait in the street

This is a very good address in the city, located in the lovely old-city. The place is not big and because of its reputation gets full very fast, especially during week ends. It is not always easy to book a table even weeks ahead so call the restaurant first before making any plans.

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.
