Enjoyable evening meal

I ate at this restaurant a few days ago as a solo traveller. I had previously walked past on the Friday night and only seen two couples eating and that put me off.

Thierry at Hotel de Paris (wonderful hotel) recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, great service and excellent value for money. The cow on the roof was exactly that too.

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.

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.

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.
