We visited here whilst on holiday in Bujaleuf. We swerve allocate a table outside which is practically on a table on the pavement with passers by walking past your table constantly. Waiter was friendly and pleasant. Menu was limited with no English translations available. Partners main of local beef was quite tough and rubbery and served with a equally dry... More

The restaurant recommended by our hotelier was closed on a Monday so we were at a loss as to where to eat. We happened upon this place and were so glad we did! The food is typically French but not pretentious, the portions good. If you like boring British food and if your child is a fussy eater then this... More

Nice small restauarant in the center of the city beside the markethall. Make shure you make a reservation cause people queue up to get a place. To food is delicious and the wines are good. Go there!

The terrace is not very appealing. And the resaturant looks like a simple French bistrot. But Alphonse welcomes every gueast himself. What a host! And what a white brigade! The Tournedos sauce au poivre nears perfection. And the wines? Ofcourse. Heavenly. When in Limoges go and visit Alphose for a meal. But do book in advance, because Alphonse has made... More

A quintessential French restaurant which specialises in meat. Veal, great Limousin beef, duck, quail and more. The house wine was actually not bad and the desserts were great. Massive communal bowl of chocolate mousse and a creme brûlée. But my highlight was the onglet steak and the potatoes.

By chance wandering the streets and lanes of Limoges we came across this Restsurant Whilst reading the menu we realised all those eating at the tables outside were French. A good reference and one of the most authentic meals we have had on our car trip through france A brilliant white asparagus with crispy bacon and a super rich sauce... More

On the hunt for Limousine beef I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend who grew up in Limonge. Great food in a simple but comfortable atmosphere. Attractive dishes with portions that were ample but not embarrassing. I would recommend the Entrecôte. The deserts surprisingly enough were less desirable. Get your protein fix here!

We had booked for 1930 but having to find the place, we arrived earlier at about 1915. Understood they probably could not serve us, we asked for a drink and would wait but this was denied as the chef was still eating! So we went elsewhere for the drink, returned at 1940 to find several diners seated and already eating.... More

A very nice place to have dinner. The stuff is very nice and making you feel very comftroble. The is very good and it's open until late. The house red wine is not the best but still good.

Went for lunch on a Friday (always a good idea to book, especially Friday lunchtime as this is the busiest lunch service of the week - by 13.00 people were waiting for a table to come free - sustained by a drink and snacks). Beef cheeks and tete de veau were both very good, followed by cafe gourmande and mousse... More
