Our favourite restaurant in Limoges. It's classy, welcoming and the food is delish!!!! May be a little pricey for those on a budget however there are several menus to choose from and the lowest around 20€ per person for three course lunch. NOTE it's a busy place and you normally have to book ahead and pay a 15€ pp deposit.
