This smart bistro close to the Halles food market is full of locals and a warm and has a convivial atmosphere. That means the produce used is very fresh, and though the cooking is simple, it's expertly done. Winning dishes include sausage with potato purée, steak tartare and matured ribs of beef. If you don’t fancy a blow-out meal, come for wine and platters of locally-sourced cheese and charcuterie. La Loge Gogaille is a brilliant boutique hotel, with 13 vintage-inspired rooms and 4 apartments in an apartment building, a 2-minute walk from the restaurant (prices start at 96€ double). The bonus? Gogaille also owns one of limoges’ best bakeries, so the breakfast croissants and bread are to die for.
