This restaurant was recommended by the front desk. I think we were the only American/English couple in the place. The menu is on a chalkboard on the wall. We were trying to figure out what everything was from our travel phrase book when the man at the next table (tables are very close together) asked if he could help. He... More

I went early, on a saturday night, so as to get a little table. Great waitress chose my 2 wonderful glasses of wine. Duck confit, bread, potatoes, chocolate mousse (all you can eat!), in a great old building with families and crowds having fun and a few solo diners. The little girls at the table next to me were adorable,... More

Friendly, fast service with nice little touches like the waiter checking whether we wanted a carafe of tap water rather than a bottle of mineral. I could have picked just about anything from an excellent menu and all three in our party were delighted choices although I thought that my veau pave was superb. The wine list was excellent with...

Chez Alphonse is a small restaurant in Limoges, just behind the old market building downtown. We've been there once in 2013 and once in 2014 and have yet to run into any other Americans there. The clientele tends to be strictly local. Some staff speak English, but not all do, so brush up on your "restaurant French" before you go.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a local bar man...who liked his food! Not the easiest of places to find by car,sat nav to the rescue,but a really good find. We were sat downstairs and the surroundings and service were great . The food was fresh and excellent with regional dishes. Thanks for a great evening .

In the evenings, the bistro takes over mosy of the sidewalk outside it and a couple of neighbouring shops opposite Les Halles. The staff are quite proud of their 'authentic french' roots although to my mind the food is from Alsace rather than Limoges which kind of spoils the effect. Whatever, I would have thought "frites" were authentic enough by... More

We traveled with a group of nine family members, and we were there for 17 days total. We all agreed, this was the best and most memorable meal that we had in France! We sat outside at a large table on the front sidewalk and we were quite comfortable. The staff was extremely nice and the chef came out to... More

Bistro atmosphere, good food. Best-ever chicken with, oddly, a sort of macaroni cheese a special hit. Very much a restaurant for meat-eaters, but otherwise recommended.

We liked the food, the service, particularly the patience of the busy staff explaining their extensive menu. Probably the best meal had so far in our 3 weeks in France.

If you go to Limoges please do not miss out on eating at this restaurant. we stumbled across it by accident and once inside we didn't want to leave. The food was cooked to perfection and the service impeccable. We were made to feel special all evening and our waitress was attentive and immediately responsive to any requests we made.... More
