I dined here while staying locally and visiting champagne makers, and found the food good, with very pleasant service. It was such value that I dropped in for lunch the next day between tasting appointments. The 3 course menu at 29 euros offers a choice of entrees including an enjoyable fillet of quail, with foie gras and orange salad; and tartare of cucumber and radish, fromage blanc and asparagus, which was perfect as a light lunch between more grand (and expensive) dinners elsewhere. Mains on the prix fixe menu include chicken and tarragon, lamb, and steak tartare. Desserts offer a good chocolate plate, as well as local raspberies. The wine list is adequate for a lighter meal. Service by two young women was competent and pleasant.
As it happened I had picked up a copy of Gault and Millau to read over lunch, and discovered Le Mesnil is owned and run by Patrick Michelon of the Epernay restaurant-hotel Les Berceux and bistro Le Sept, with similarly fresh, enjoyable and uncomplicated food.
Le Mesnil is not a grand restaurant, but is quietly stylish, with pleasant food and service. It is good value for a less expensive lunch or dinner meal.
