Really nice place and great food, but service must improve

We were there for dinner with 4 other couples. Food was excellent in all senses, even if a little expensive. I would have rated "excellent", but the service attitude still has to improve. - First, the waiter getting a little impatient because we wanted to share some starters and were trying to... read more

A bit expensive but the meal's worth it. The service was OK but the food was really really good. Been there twice and never were disappointed.

Good well cooked food. Good choice. Nice atmosphere, fairly traditional. Good service. Can't think of anything we disliked although we did find it difficult to locate as it's away from the town centre.

We were a family of four, and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Even if we only had the main corse we enjoyed it immensely. The confit de canard was exquisite and the rack of lamb delicious. Even the house wine enhanced the meal.

This is a lovely little surprise. I found it quite by accident and since then I have been back twice. I go there after the Sunday markets for a late lunch. I usually order the plat du jour and it is always good. Good wine choices too. They have a young lady waitress who is very efficient and knows her... More

This small, but welcoming restaurant is definately the best in St Germain and that is saying something as there are very many excellent eateries here. Excellent wine selection and it won't break the bank. The Creme Brulee is the best I have ever tasted!

Le Manège offers an attractive atmosphere, combining a very old buiding and dining room with advertising posters and memorabilia from the auto culture of the first half of the XXth century Food is good, freshn friendly, if not earth-shatteringly innovative. Prices are always fair. Service can be a bit variable, with speed wanting, but never unfriendly or casual.

I visit this restaurant every time I come to saint Germaine, and it never let's me down! Had dinner there on Tuesday night, started with a salad, then the rack of lamb, and closed with the creme brule. Can't beat it!
