“A excellent surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

I knew the Concepte because I enjoy stopping by early in the day for a quick coffee before shopping at the local butcher, bakery and the fruit & vegi store. It is a typical french Café, where the locals read their newspapers and chat about sports (mainly rugby :D), politics and the economy. Yesterday, I went in for the first time around noon and realized that all the table were busy with people ordering food. It sparked my interest and after I spotted an empty table we sat down. I had the duck tournedos with foie gras and it was delicious. The work colleague I was with, ordered the lamb rack and loved it. The quality/tenderness of the meat used for both meals were very close to excellent and the service temperature was nothing short of perfect! To round up the experience, it came with a side of home made french fries!!! Kudos to the Concepte team for preparing for us a meal that won't be the last one!

“Fair restaurant on the square in Limoux.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We ate a couple of times here whilst on holiday. The second time was pretty much due to the fact that it was the only place that had any tables available.

Both times the service was efficient without being friendly and the food was pretty good but unremarkable. The first time we had two of the plat du jour which were good value at 9 euros but the other time there was no 'plat du hour' and I would say 13 euros for Steak Hache and chips is a little on the expensive side although the salads were tasty (and standard price of 10-12 euros). However the great 'people watching' atmosphere on Limoux square makes it a little more palatable.

Worth a look if you are in the area but the food is better and better value at La Tantina I would say.

“Average French restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Food unremarkable except the Fricassee which was delicious. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. House wine good. Setting on the main square in Limoux great for people watching. Bread portions were remarkable in that they were very 'mean' a slice each only. I have never encountered this in France! When I commented on this to the waiter he said it was because some people order bread and then leave it ... Hmmm!

“One of the best on the square in Limoux”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

We had been to this restaurant several times on previous trips to Limoux and we didn't love it, but something has changed in the last 12 months. Service has always been friendly and attentive, but they have upped their game on the food front. There is a good choice of main course salads (unless you have a really big appetite, don't think of ordering a salad and a main!), as well as omelettes, pizzas, meat and fish dishes and a good choice of desserts, mainly ice-cream based. The chips have improved a lot since last year, although on our recent visit, some of them were a little hard.

There is lots going on in the square in Limoux during the summer months - from morning and evening markets to music and dancing - but even if nothing organised is going on, it's a great place to sit and watch the world go by and you could do a lot worse than have lunch or dinner at Le Concept while watching.

“Tasty omelettes, huge salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

The food was good, service good - young French men practicing their English. It's a locals place so good people-watching. Out front plaza seating is great, stay under the umbrella. Watch the children play in the plaza near the fountain
