Make sure you book ahead, this place is understandably busy with great food and service. Reasonably priced for the high standard achieved.

We were fortunate to get the last table for lunch the day before the 24 Hour race and we were very happy with meals and service. Friendly staff and efficient service. Wine selection is good and my wife had a great salmon salad. I had a Jambon Grille' special with a panna cotta dessert that was equally delicious. Highly recommend... More

We arrived without a reservation as service was opening and were greeted with nothing but service of a type we just don't see in the UK . No tables available to book but they gave us a table in the cool stone cave and attended to our order with great enthusiasm. My French is typical schoolgirl and with no wifi... More

We visited this restaurant in the heart of old Le Mans based on the TA reviews. Great location and ambience, excellent food and excellent value for money, The service is first class, our express lunch even finished with complimentary cherry brandies. It truly is as good as the reviews and was worth the detour from our trip.

Very good address, from the reception they make you feel at home. Warm welcome, excellent and cordial service. The menu is simple 7 entries, 7 main courses 7 desserts, all sounds delicious and it is. The beef is juice and tender, the pork like the one that your own grandmother would cook. Prices are reasonable and well worth. The second... More
