Just dined chez "Chez Alphonse" - excellent: friendly welcome, super menus, good service, delicious food, noisy, fun atmosphere - and good value. You need to ring ahead and book a table. If only all restaurants were like this ......

Tasty, traditional, handmade all qualities not that often found in France We had mains and deserts. Ribeye steak at its best, as cabbage stew, quails, potatoes gratin really incredible and all the like. Desserts are good... More

Called in on the off chance and managed to get a table. The food was lovely and the staff very helpful considering my limited French and their limited English. Actually spent three hours over dinner as the ambience was so good and there was no attempt to shuffle us off. A superb first dinner in Limoges :)

We were greeted warmly and shown the last available table, near the door, but we didn't have a reservation and it was a very busy night. We started with cremant de Loire and were offered little toasts topped with pate. My husband really enjoyed his steak and potatoes entree while I enjoyed my stew of cod and potato. The food... More

...and hard-working staff. Regional menu with some unfamiliar takes on standard dishes. Escargots come shelled in a broth, for example. It majors on meat with a couple of fish dishes and the wine list is limited. There are some half-bottles of both white and red. While you clearly need to book if you want to eat at your chosen hour,... More

We've been here twice now and both times the food was very good and service excellent. Their 'Specials' board has a interesting variety of regional and pork dishes, but interesting variations on beef and veal are also available. If I can criticise it at all it would be that their house wine is pretty average, which could be easily fixed... More

Finally, on the last night of our stay, a French restaurant that lives up to expectations! We didn't hold much hope out for getting a table here as there were reservations everywhere. But they squeezed us in after a short wait and were clearly keen to not lose out on custom. Compared to some of the other experiences we'd had... More

I really don't know why this restaurant is in the top of Limoges! 2 apple-juices € 6,-, one bottle of water € 5,-. A small glass of wine is € 3,80 and that was normal wine of the region (table wine). Small portions and no single smile of the waitress. If the food was good, I had no comment. The... More

No nonse bistro. Good traditional food. Limited winelist. Quality is very good. Don't expect fine elegant plates. Make reservation. Very busy place with hard working (almost running) staff.
