Stumbled upon this place while looking for the restaurant we intended to go to (which was closed). Very nice place with a large outdoor shaded patio. Very quiet and serene setting in the middle of LeMans. Service was excellent and the food was even better....More

Switched on staff, snappy, friendly, serving up good food at a fair price. The rear courtyard provides shade from the evening sun, and a great vibe in the cloister-like space. Try the steak-frites, and the foie gras!

Our fifth visit to the restaurant and five different selections. All have been very good. Extensive traditional French Menu. Not cheap but good value. Wines can be a little expensive but there are good value ones as well. Garden restaurant open in the summer but...More

Was taken here by a local colleague and the food was excellent. Nice menu, available in English as well with correct translations. Portions are a decent size. My steak was cooked to perfection. The restaurant is a typical French bistro and is lovely.

We were tired and hot after a long journey north and this was close to where we were staying and open on a Monday evening. Food great, veal in mushroom sauce and the chicken recommended. Good service, pleased with our choice

Dinner with my son (and a dog.....). Staff are friendly, flexible, attentive and quick. Food was good and relatively cheap (opt for the menu). We sat in the garden space at the back of the house. We'd go again.

Went there on 13th July- stupidly didn't realise it was a holiday the next day. It was very busy, the service was slow and the food wasn't great. It had a nice outside garden at the back where we sat.

We came here in a big group with prior reservation as part of our 24 hours of Le Mans visit. As I understood from our French colleagues, the cuisine is typically local and quite good. Please, note that it's quite heavy with a lot of...More

Looking at the reviews on here, I feel I am committing a crime by placing an average the on this restaurant. We visited after the Drivers parade, everywhere was packed so we were lucky to get a table. We sat out at the back, on...More

We looked around in Le Vieux Mans (the old part of Le Mans) and this restaurant´s menu pleased us most. Neighbouring restaurants have terraces in the streets, but La Fabrique has one at the back, surrounded by (the back of) old weaver houses. The terrace...More
