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

We go here at Lunchtimes whenever we're in Limoges. It's always full of local people and there's a real buzz of French character and life from across the patrons. The menu is always varied and has unusual dishes that are cooked and presented perfectly. We sometimes don't know quite what we're going to get and are always delighted. Their is... More

My hotel recommended this restaurant & with the good reviews I decided to try. I walked in for lunch without a reservation and they couldn't accommodate me so I tried again the next day. I was lucky to get a table but was disappointed that the staff didn't make much effort to help me with their menu which is in... More

Limoges is not the easiest place in which to locate a French restaurant! There are comparatively few but Chez Alphonse is a gem. Light years removed from nouvelle cuisine, this place offers good, regional dishes for those with hearty appetites. Service is friendly and efficient and there are a wide range of items on the menu. Please note: this restaurant... More

My third steak in 2 weeks in France was the only one worthy of the name - although slightly too well done for medium. Flavoursome and tender. My wife had shoulder of lamb with a mixed vegetable garnish that looked like a dry ratatouille and tasted lovely - although I was not allowed to test this. The highlight was the... More
