Happened across this place by accident whilst looking for an evening meal. Superb French cuisine with an extensive wine list and a vast and varied menu. Friendly staff, not much English spoken (Which suits us!) and very clean. The farmyard scene affixed to the ceiling is an added bonus! Would not hesitate to recommend and use again. Five star!

If you are looking for somewhere with a hint of quirkiness, this is the place for you. We were in Limoges only for one night as a party of six and looked at 3 local restaurants recommended by our hotel. This was a stand out winner, the menu is extensive and caters for all likes and the decor keeps the... More

Very disappointed by the service. It took too long to be served. The food was average. But the mood of the restaurant was cool tough. They don't know what picon is!

We had forgotten to research restaurants in Limoges, so went to this one on the recommendation of the receptionist at the Hotel de Paris. Guests at the hotel, who mention its name on arrival, get a free glass of wine, and for all I know the hotel owner may get a kickback. The food is OK, although no more than... More

The ambience in the restaurant is nice and amusing; a cow hanging from the ceiling and pohotgraphs and items of cows and chickens everywhere. Very busy restaurant, food nothing special, but sufficient. Large portions. Fine to have a dinner once during a stay in Limoges.

We ate here on a Sunday night, when most restaurants in the area were closed. Our hotel made this recommendation. The night before, I at a Michelin 1-star restaurant (in another city). That said, the food here was good. Nothing fancy, just good food for a fair price. The wine was good too. They have a chalkboard with the nightly... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after walking by. What a fantastic place. We love the way the room is decorated like a farmyard. Never seen anything like it! The best thing about this restaurant is the menu. We both went for the signature dish (steak with the Vache au Plaford sauce), served 'bleu/saignant', and it was as expected... More

My husband and I ate here after the hotel recommended it. Busy atmosphere, lots of choice on menu..all in French so was a slight gamble as ours is basic. Both had rumpsteak for €12.50 followed by the cafe gourmand trio of dessert which was lovely! €5.80. Very reasonable price for generous quantity. Would recommend!

The interior of the restaurant is quite querky, but very comfortable. The food and wine was beautiful and the service was fast and friendly. Obviously very popular with the locals as well.
