We're going to be staying in Le Mans itself and taking a couple of days to enjoy the place rather than just around the track. We won't have a car and will be using the tram system.

I know there's tripadvisor and I've looked, does anyone have suggestions for decent restaurants/bars?

My enquiries so far have resulted in;
  • Steve
  • L’un des Sens Bar a Vins

Just take a wander through the area of the old town north of Place de l'Eperon/Avenue de Rostov-sur-le-Don. Nice quiet area with a number of restaurants, including the Corvette team's old hangout when the parade route used to go that way.

A group of us went here in August on the way back from our summer hols, good food, very busy, and the waiting staff were excellent,

That's our regular place, if you go round the back to the little square there's more options, which appear to serve food from the same kitchen as the 7 plats, always excellent

We've enjoyed a trip to the Le Mans Legends cafe the past three years but sadly it looks like it has closed so will have to find a new venue!

+1. 7 Plat is great and has a sister restaurant opposite the town hall around the back. Will definitely need to book. Further down the hill in the same road is Les Nez Rouge, which is much smaller but very nice.

We've booked this one and have our eye on others - the key question is Sunday night.

All the ones that we thought would be good are closed on the Sunday - do they open just for a racing weekend or is it typical France and they're closed even though there's a decent revenue stream walking past?

I would add, yes we are going next week for the classic, and staying in the centre of town so any suggestion needs to be walking distance please?

Often Sunday night and all day Monday is standard closing.
Even if it’s a bank holiday Monday- closed.

There’s more to choose from than Macd’s.
Most of the big chain restaurants are open Monday and some of them can be good
Try Trip advisor for St Saturnin or la Chapelle St Aubin.
It’s the commercial centre Auchan on the way into Le Mans

Thanks, was joking about mcds, one of our party owns a restaurant so would rather go hungry than spend money at the golden arches.

I think we'll find something. I'm hoping that something reasonable will be open in the centre of town.
