We had a fabulous meal at Le Rouge Nez, which was recommended by the owner of the hotel we were staying at. The restaurant is down at tiny cobbled street in the old town of Le Mans. It might take some finding but well worth it. The old town is well worth exploring. We were met at the door by... More

I had the le nez rouge cocktail which was champagne based with a mandarin liqueur. We were give some complementary pate and... More

We were passing through the old town, read the menu and decided to try it. We were not disappointed!! Creative menu, good service and a choice to sit inside or out. Very good value for money.there were some nice touches like the rille totes to start and the sorbet palate cleanser. My husband had the slow cooked beef which was... More

We paid approx £60 for a superb three course meal with a bottle of red wine - 2 people. It's not huge, booking advised, but the food is really classy.

We have been here 5 days. After many restaurants, this one was excellent. Often when a large group comes it can be a shock, but they welcomed us! The steak was perfect and fell into your fork!. They give extra items like bread and sorbet. Then to make it perfect, the desserts were outstanding! Everyone of 20 people raved over... More

We had an evening meal with friends who use this restaurant regularly, we now know why. For us it is a bit of a journey but well worth the time spent traveling. Superb value good service, excellent menu. A tad crowded but that only added to the ambiance. We will be back.

We visited this restaurant in the old medieval part of Le Mans after wandering around looking for somewhere different to eat. It was only 7.00pm so we were able to get in but most others who had not booked arriving after us were not able to get in. The restaurant is small and quite closely packed in but it was... More

Our b&b host recommended this as one of her most favorite restaurants, and we were not disappointed! The food was artfully presented, yet not pretentious and very delicious. My salad starter included an unusual combination of delicious vegetables and fruits, contrasting flavors and with a very interesting, tasty result. All of the food was delicious, as was the house rouge... More
