“....when in Rome.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We so enjoyed our visit to La Chamade.

The interior in this timber framed medieval building bridging the old and new towns of Le Mans is quite amazing. Being a warm and sultry evening we chose to eat on the terrace.

Our experience that night left us feeling relaxed and satisfied. This was in part due to the professionalism of the waiting staff and in part due to the good value set menu.64euros for two including wine and coffee.
However, be warned that my fish dish was served in a typical buttery regional sauce which could have been a little more delicate in execution, but hey, this is a personal preference and by no means a criticism of the cooking............ when in Rome.......

If I am ever in Le Mans again, I will be sure to make a reservation at La Chamade.

“Late lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We ended up in La Chamade more by necessity than choice as we were late having lunch. We had the Menu de Marche for 15E and it was excellent value and the food very tasty. The cafe gourmand was a very nice treat. The staff were attentive but not pushy and we were not rushed despite the lateness of our meal.

“Great traditional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great little find in the old part of town, good traditional food that catered for us all including a fussy eater. Nice tables outside, quiet, with unassuming service. The food was excellent.

“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Loved this restaurant. We went to eat at a different restaurant but it was closed on the Monday we were there. So we managed to blag a table at La Chamade as we hadn't made a reservation. Food was amazing, dessert was gorgeous and the waiter spoke pidgeon English like our pidgeon French so we actually managed to get some food that we liked and were satisfied with. Best meal in our whole holiday..

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

Great restaurant with enclosed private terrace to eat outside in nice weather but contemporary and cosy deocration inside too. We had a 3 course meal and had no complaints with the service, quality or value. Presentation of food was excellent and there was a good range of wines to choose from.
