Fun place for good regional food

The food and service were excellent. The owner and his staff were charming and made us very welcome. The quirky decor adds a touch of humour to an excellent local restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended to us - and it appeared a brilliant indeed. Good portions, delicious meals, attentive staff and reasonable prices - all this marks this restaurant out of many we've tried during this trip around France. Original design as well.

Very good service. Food is local and better if you like meat. on top of the menu, there is board with special. lots of choices. had bone marrow, really good. Salads are very good portion as a starter or a main. For dessert I had a clafoutis, really good too. Overall, a place to go.

Really nice comfortable restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Have only eaten here at lunchtime but I know others who have eaten here in the evening. Enjoyable meal, nice staff, popular place to eat in Limoges and not too fussy :) medium budget.

I happened upon this restaurant when searching for a Sunday evening meal. The staff does not speak English, but were quite friendly. I could read enough French to recognize a few selections. I had filet of beef with potatoes and mushrooms and a spinach salad. The meal was excellent. The dessert, a lemon torte layer with crepes was very good... More

A December 28, Sunday evening in Limoges at freezing weather, we were lucky to have this restaurant recommended by our hotel open for dinner. Agree that the decor was quirky but nice, agree that most of our requests were good (not great) but with a little help from a better service, it would be a very good choice. Specials on... More

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!
