We were a group of 8 on the day of the Le Mans drivers parade which passes right in front of the restaurant. We didn't have reservation, the restaurant was packed, we waited for about 30 minutes until we were seated. Even though it was packed and it's probably the most chaotic day, the food was sublime! They even manage... More

While the menu is quite restricted and the service (on the Saturday night) was slow, we enjoyed good food while we sat outside people-watching in the centre of Le Mans. We had a kir royale and two mojitos (there were two of us), rillettes followed by fillet steak and steak tartare. This was washed down with a bottle of Provencale... More

Came here for a pre wedding dinner so we had a set menu. Food was excellent with great vegetarian options. The star of the meal was dessert (flowing chocolate cake or strawberry and chocolate pudding) - would definitely return to order these again The only downside was slow service - we were there for at least 1.5 hrs before appetizers...

Called in here the day of the drivers parade for the le Mans 24 Race. Managed to get a table for lunch, and we weren't hurried at all. Good menu including dish of the day. I had a salad, and it was very tasty. Good selection of wine, cocktails etc, and we sat for a few hours. Very reasonable price... More

Visited aka Reserve whilst on a business visit with a colleague. Three courses fixed price menu was excellent. Carpaccio of beef, pork and apple crumble fantastic. Washed down with Grimbergen Rouge. Fantastic.

This is a large modern restaurant. Sames chef as the Michelin restaurant le Beaulieu upstairs. This set some expectations for the food quality. But for me that didn't get much over average. Everything was cooked well, but nothing special. Service was good

While on a trip with some family members we stumbled across what looked like was going to be a great restaurant to enjoy. However we didn't even get a chance to try the food as our server was extremely rude and condescending to the mere fact that we were not locals! I would expect that they would want and welcome...

I am doing a study abroad in Le Mans and I went with my fellow american friends and (american and canadian) for a late lunch. When we got there it was typical french service slow but whenever we asked a question the waitress would disappear for 15 minutes try to speak in english and treated us like idiots. We knew... More
