We were staying in Limoges for one night on a Sunday. Saying Limoges is dead on a Sunday is an understatement. Nonetheless we were informed by the receptionist that there were 3 restaurants open. On our walk around town in search of life we encountered the first and it was a bar and nothing out of the ordinary. Before walking... More

This is one of those "you have to see it to believe it" type of places. There is a cow on the ceiling, which is painted grass green, and a chicken too. There are (stuffed) chickens in a faux cage beside some of the tables. Clearly the owner has a great sense of humour. The food is extremely delicious, all... More

We came here on a sunday evening end of july. Actually one of the few restaurants in the city that was open. Great food & deserts. Bit understaffed for the number of guests so it took a while between the courses. Kids had a steak hachee (hamburger) which was great.

We loved this restaurant so much we went there twice! The upturned farm on the ceiling was such a laugh and the theme was present throughout; even in the bathroom where there was udder shaped soap, (Thankfully, liquid soap was also available) cow hide patterns on tiles and meadow flower prints on toilet seats and toilet roll holders. The food... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotelier and we were not disappointed It was empty when we arrived but within the hour was full It seemed to be frequented by locals which is always a good sign The staff were very friendly but did not speak English (although we spoke French so maybe they did not feel the need to!)...

Fabulous food - great range on menu - one English-speaking waiter (Abas) was very helpful, advising on meals and wines. Used this restaurant most evenings - staff very friendly and location is just a fun place. If you like your beef more pink than red, ask for well-done. Try dessert of 'Omelette Norwegian'. Open on Sundays as well.

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 a work function for... 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.
