Enjoyed a fantastic evening here with great food and wine at great value prices. The burger was one of the very best I've ever had. When in France I always seek out a steack haché, they are just so much more tasty than burgers in the UK. This one was amazing, bursting with flavour and very generously sized too. Met... More

There were 60+ people in our group and the upstairs area had been reserved for us. The whole group was delayed but the restaurant said this wasn't a problem. However, service wasn't the best, I'm not sure if it was due to us being late. We had many issues with the drinks order as the wrong size or drink kept... More

Dear Guest, We apologize if your moment in our restaurant didn't be as well as you would. It is important to us all our customers are satisfied. Actually, it isn't clear in France that a Beer is a pint if it isn't specified... half pint to us and half liter to you. It is a cultural eccentricity Translation! We are... More

I visited here while travelling around France with work. The staff were quite prompt but they looked as though they were understaffed as they were rushing about everywhere and we were forgotten about for the first 20 minutes. When we were finally served, we ordered our drinks and food at the same time. I ordered the Alpine burger and asked... More

We went here as part of a large group and the restaurant did their best to accommodate us but did not quite pull it off, the responsibility for part of which has to lay with how it was organized. There were about 100 people in total and we occupied the upper floor but people were sitting in groups between 4... More

Attended the restaurant on the evening of the European 2016 Cup Final, which coincided with the Le Mans Classic weekend, 9th / 10th July so our experience was perhaps not typical. Very atmospheric with the motor racing memorabilia and packed with motor enthusiasts and French football fans. Service was adequate under the circumstances and the pizzas at least were perfectly...

You go to Legend Cafe for the motorsport connections, there's a bike in the window and the walls are covered in photos, artwork and items related to the 24 hours. The food is a mixture of pub classics and French traditional food. My French colleagues ordered the regional specialities so they must be good. I had the confit de canard... More

I have been visiting the Legend Cafe for nearly 10 years and unfortunately the last few visits have been more than disappointing, the service has been slow and lacked vigilance or interest, the food was definitely sub standard and poor quality, the menu now is lacking any imagination and really is boring. the restaurant is a great petrol head venue...

We ate here on our Wedding to the South of France, very disappointed with the food and service level received. The staff were attentive but didn't feel it was at all good value for money and that the food had been simply thrown together.

Can't speak for rest of the menu, but I woudn't order pizza. Could be the worst one I've ever eaten. On the other hand, the service was good and prompt - we were in a bit of a hurry, as we had to get to the concert.
