This is the best place in Limoux for lunch, in my view. Although more expensive than the restaurants on the main square, the food is beautifully presented and generally very good indeed. What brings it down? Two things - one is the very surly waiter, whose manner is a complete contrast to all the other staff and the other is... More

I would like to reinforce the comments made by the previous reviewer. It is a great shame that one of the restaurants offering better food in Limoux has such a poor front of house. Whatever the quality of the cuisine, we would certainly be unable to recommend Tantine because of the unfriendly and unhelpful attitude of the maitre d'. In... More

Would love to review the food at this restaurant but found the head waitor to be so rude that we left without ordering, something I have never done before. We were shown to our table on the terrace by a very pleasant member of staff who took our drinks order and whilst waiting for these we became aware of a... More

The set 3 course lunch offers really great value for money as the quality and exectuion of the food they serve really is impeccable. Some nice classical French cooking with some modern twists to seperated it from the croud. Easily of bib gourmand standard.

Lunched there today with my wife and had both had a perfect lunch from the €25 brasserie menu. The courtyard surroundings and the service were excellent. We both chose the Auberine confit with Boudin Noir and Parmesan as a starter and the Hake with Piperade pasta and Chorizo as a main. Both dishes were beautiful with a perfect balance of... More

A good restaurant in the centre of Limoux. We were a group of four and each chose from the menu of the day. All were very satisfied and would return.

We had good food, but the service was unfriendly and pompous. The atmosphere as lacking as the place was silent and even when busy, everyone was talking is hushed voices. Too full of itself, without any wow factor from the food to distract you.

We went last Saturday. Chinese whispers, someone had told someone about this wonderful restaurant of a very high standard. It was fantastic delicious. A set menu for €32. Three courses all sublime and a choice of two dishes at each level. My main cod of fish was cooked absolutely beautifully. My husband had the steak and that was wonderful too.... More

After having difficulties at finding a hotelroom in Limoux, the hotel we found the last room in (Grand Hotel Moderne et Pigeon) had an unexpectedly good restaurant (one in the Hotel and one on the Place General Leclerc). We ate at the one on Place GL, because the one at the hotel was already fully booked. We enjoyed a great... More
