Good mix of food - clam linguine was amazing. Service excellent (French and English) and nice atmosphere. Got busy later on. 2 boys aged 11 & 12 said it was bae fam - I'm not down with the kids but I'm told that's good 👍

Stopped here en route to Calais (Alencon is an easy/quick stop from the peage). Lots of choice for restaurants in Alencon and this was a good option - good value 'pub grub' French style. We had Maigret duck, saute potatoes and salad (great), Italian salad (very good), burger with saute potatoes and salad (very good) and kids menu pizza (freshly... More

We had promised the boys burgers but the restaurant was closed (on a Saturday night?!) so went hunting and came across Le Haute Ministere. So glad we were reasonably early as within the hour they were turning people away. All four of us had an excellent meal. Three happy bodies with the 29€ menu and one with a chèvre chaud... More

The pizza was a good enough one, nothing very special, but... Wine and atmosphere great, host friendly and relaxed, guest a mixed variety so good for all and everyone. Open on sunday night, which means something here. I mean: were was everyone, streets empty everything closed....

A good selection on the menu. My husband and father had entrecôte and enjoyed it very much. Chèvre chaud salad and flat breads were good. Decor a bit odd, a bit English pubby but overall a very enjoyable meal.

We ate here after a 6 hour journey when we were tired and hungry. The service was friendly and welcoming and the food was very good quality and plentiful. Everything was prepared freshly. If you want a good value tasty meal I can strongly recommend Le Haut Ministere. In this case I think that looks are deceiving as the restaurant... More

As usual in France we struggled to find somewhere open on a Sunday evening. This place offered pizza and pasta, very nicely done, in an "English pub" style setting. It was very good value and offered very reasonably priced wine. Very popular with locals.

Having spent a long weekend with friends at the Le Mans 24h race, we broke the journey back to the UK in Alencon, and had dinner here. It was exactly what we needed! Delicious, honest food, and warm welcoming service. The Forestiere flammkuchen was a rustic delight, the Entrecote was very good quality and value, and the Creme Brulee a... More

This is another restaurant that I, together with a group of friends, have visited a number of times over the years. It is probably the largest of the ones we normally use, but seems to be very popular and can get quite full. The owner is a jazz enthusiast, as is obvious by the décor, and apparently there are jazz... More
