We were staying in the station area on Easter Sunday and didn't have hopes for finding a decent evening meal among the creperies, the pizzerias and the indian restaurants as most other places were closed. Then we lit upon La Ciboulette and thought we'd give...More

We really enjoyed our dinner at La Ciboulette. We had made a reservation, which I think is a must, since we saw many people turned away. The service was attentive and the meal was absolutely delicious. They had an excellent wine list as well. You...More

Totally beautiful and delicious food from start to finish. The staff were very attentive and patient with my attempts to speak in French at the end of my holiday. Would recommend without hesitation.

We arrived at 20.45 in the evening and the Service denied the entrance. Really unfriendly, rude and when we asked explanation they switched from english to French. Really Not friendly place for tourists and foreigners. To avoid.

A family run restaurant with local flavour and style. Lamb was crispy, juicy and succulent; balanced flavour all round! Good value set menu too.

There are loads of restaurants in the lovely Old Town of Le Mans and it is difficult to choose one. This one has a modern frontage and could easily be missed. It was just lucky that I looked at the menu and thought it sounded...More
