Description: "This superb Michelin-starred restaurant is located in a former hunting lodge nestled on the edge of the Andaine forest. Le Manoir du Lys is a stylish, family-run hotel providing guests with an idyllic escape from city living, and Head Chef Franck Quinton is renowned for his acclaimed French menu. The dining room at Le Manoir du Lys – with its exposed stone walls and contemporary colour scheme, is always filled with foodies flocking from far and wide to taste Quinton's innovative cuisine. Combining regional flavours and forest produce with gastronomic flair, Quinton has forged a stellar reputation with dishes such as white asparagus served with wild mushrooms, morels and a Marans egg, and foie gras served with truffle soup.

“C'est Bon Dinner at Le Manoir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

Wonderful meal is an upscale environment.
Like a lot of places in the French countryside English is at a premium and only some of the staff spoke English. And English menu would have helped, seemed odd that they did not have one since most of the restaurant, even the cheap ones, have an English language menu .
The food was fabulous, minimal beer selection, I don't drink wine.
Staff was the stuff the finest restaurants are made of.
Food was superb.

“Expensive, but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

Stayed here a couple of years ago and enjoyed the food in the restaurant. Stayed in Bagnoles-de-l'orne town centre this visit and went there for dinner. Excellent meal, lovely setting and good service. All the dishes were well balanced in flavour and very pleasing on the eye. If I had to be critical the speciality of the house dessert 'macaroon with sweet mushroom cream and mushroom sorbet' was spoilt by the black sorbet which had a slight bitter after taste but my husband loved it.
