This restaurant has great food but....

I have been to this restaurant numerous times. The food is wonderful. I guess I am just used to people getting to know their customers. Everytime I walk into this restaurant I feel like I am a new face. Not in a positive way. They don't create a warm welcoming atmosphere. I haven't been back since... read more

Very nice experience. English spoken. Open on a Sunday night which is good as there aren't too many places open in limoges. Excellent variety and reasonablely priced.... Desserts were also delicious.

A warm welcome on a cold Saturday in January. A large menu but everything we chose was delicious. Perfectly cooked fillet of beef and a good selection of vegetables. Really yummy desserts. Definitely recommend

A quirky restaurant with a farmyard on the ceiling including a cow grazing. There is a good a la carte and daily menu on the slate. Service is good without being over attentive. There is a good choice of food, it came without too much delay and steaming hot.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying in. A wide variety of food and daily special board and very kind and attentive staff. Obviously very popular with tourists and locals. Interesting decor with cows adorning the ceiling. Reasonably priced.

We ate here after the reviews and really wished we hadn't. The gimmicky cows on the ceiling can be the only reason people come here. The food was at best average but the service was atrocious. My steak came rare as I had asked but no where near as rare as a smile or welcoming service from any of the... More

We were taken here by young friends while we were visiting them in Limoges. It is a very different experience in both cuisine and decor. Although there is a set menu there is also a large chalkboard listing the many daily specials. These are what you want to peruse because the ingredients will be fresh and your meal will be... More
