Delicious 3-course meal and great service. It exceeded expectations even with all the great reviews we had read. Would recommend the salad with duck, the chicken, and make sure to try the fries. Location on a quaint pedestrian-only street added to the charm.

Dinner in between visits to the racetrack, and this bistro did not disappoint. Perfectly cooked steak, scrummy pepper sauce, and a delightful whipped mash. Couldn't fit in the dessert or cheese! Service was very good, and pricing was right.

Absolutely fantastic meal. Steak cooked to perfection. Mushroom tatties were magic. If you're in Le Mans and need a steak, go here!!
