Great restaurant, impeccable service from professional and attentive waiters. This place is a must for any one who appreciates fine dining but must book in advance and bookings are generally taken only during opening hours. The cosy but spacious restaurant has only a few tables but the ambience and lighting was just right, although the dining room was a tad... More

Seven friends (late 40's early 50's) pre-booked a couple of weeks before arrival. The location is near to but not in the main square, just far enough away to be quiet but minutes from the tram. First impression from the outside was really good. Inside it is spacious, with high ceilings and a calm atmosphere with a smart upmarket feel.... More

We had a business dinner at Le Grenier. I have been to many restaurants in Le Mans, and this must be one of, if not the best in my opinion. The food has excellent presentation, and interesting and innovative variety of dishes, cooked to perfection. Portion sizes are just right for having a multi-course meal. The service is good in...

My wife and I ate at Le Grenier a Sel because of the high ratings on Tripadvisor and because they were open on Monday night when many others were closed. We each had the 39€ prix fixe menu. We both started with escargots, presented differently than classical, but very good, with a delicious foamed sauce and a parmesan cracker on... More

I had dinner here with some guests over Le Mans 24 hour weekend. Town was crowded but we had made a prior reservation for seven. The restaurant is very nice, food and wine are also excellent but overall I want to remark the extraordinary service provided by the owner and his wife.

4 of us went for a celebratory dinner after slumming it on chips and beer at les 24 heures. It was easy to book by email, even for what must be one of the town's busiest weekends. Decor is beige and bland but the flowers were sophisticated. The meal didn't disappoint, with the amuse bouches, puddings and cheese all highlights.... More

We ate here during Motogp weekend. It is stylishly decorated, quite contemporary. The staff were really polite and friendly, the service was excellent. The food was without question one of the best meals I have ever had, beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and tasted so good you never wanted it to end.
