In Le Mans for a stopover and directed to the Place de la Republique by the hotel. A lovely big square with a few restaurants around the perimeter. The busiest was La Villa, so in there we went. The menu is slightly different from the classic regional fare and I guess a little Italian by the name. The whole family... More

Restaurant has great views over the main square. Service very friendly and efficient. Great steak tartare with Gorgonzola on top, an interesting twist. My wife had Yakatori chicken with vegetables which was very good. Well worth a visit.

I ordered salmon and pasta. I would swear that the food had been sitting prepared for several hours before being served. Both the fish and pasta were hard and dry. Our food was brought out very quickly, but we had to remind the serving staff several times to bring our drinks. My husband's hamburger was mediocre at best. I tend... More

With no prior knowledge of Le Mans or its restaurants, we happened upon a newspaper article (2011) which cited La Villa as one of the three best restaurants in the city. If that's true, woe betide the rest! We sat outside on a fine Friday evening in a square opposite a Macdonalds - not a great start! Service was fine,... More

Very large restaurant at Central square. Modern interior with an odd mix of styles. We were on a Monday evening, almost no other guests. Food was very average. I ordered Duck breast, which came with a very average sauce. Desert is nice. You can choose 3 small deserts from a list, which come on one plate. But also with the... More

Make sure you have a booking. Good location, central. Nice atmosphere. Cuisine and service are very good. We had an Entrecôte and a Tournedos and a whole fish, all cooked to perfection. Good selection of wines. Reasonable prices. Great service.

This restaurant turned out to be a real surprise. We went there because it was open on a Monday unlike most places. It turned out to be excellent. A good value menu at €22 with some unusual dishes on offer. The cooking was excellent, quite cordon bleu. Very popular with locals and good service despite there being a very large... More

It is at the centre of Le Mans. I came as a tourist. The food is delicious and the prices low. The service is excellent. I will visit the restaurant again.
