Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!

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... read 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.

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
