“One of Limoges' best restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I've been living in Limoges for nearly 3 years and this is one of the best restaurants I've been to. The food is great, the setting is fantastic (although the giant cow in the middle of the restaurant is a bit strange!) and the staff were helpful. Worth a visit!

“Meat lover's paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Wonderful old 12th century monastery setting inside and meat cooked over open fires for a smoky taste, and which reminds me of the saying that in Native American, Vegetarian is just another word for bad hunter.

Large stuffed Limousin cow in middle of the restaurant is an unusual quirky feature and scared the hell out of our dogs.

This place is a meat lover's dream with a large variety of cuts to choose from.
My beef consommé entree was very good, as was my wife's leek salad, and our filet steaks were tender and tasty.

Service was very good ... we actually had our same waiter as last evening from sister restaurant "Le 27".

Wine list varied and will suit all tastes and wallets.
Lots of parking in streets around the area.

What a fantastic place, steeped in history . A fantastic setting but the main attraction is the meat lovers menu.
If you like meat you will love this place. Great service from a Michelin trained chef and well worth a visit, lunch in the courtyard is also beautiful in the summer
