We chose this restaurant on a whim and like every restaurant we are at over our 5 days in France we were not disappointed. Service was perfect and meal was to die for....all on a little side street.

A good value meal- nice squid starter, medium-good dorade. Nice atmosphere with friendly maitre D/waiter and chef rushing to serve customers, who were plentiful. A reasonable stop off in Le Mans.

We found this place by accident, but the staff were welcoming, they tried to speak with us in English which is rare for France. The food was super, and delivered rapidly. All in all, this was a pleasant surprise.
