I have not dined there. It's in a very bucolic setting in Haue Vienne near Limoges famous for it's IMO gaudy porcelaine. You will also be near, a place you must visit, Ordour sur-Glane, a village that was destroyed by the Germans and only a fw survivers. It is left in its sorry state as a memorial, less we forget.

I assume it's Limoges whose porcelain you find gaudy, and the Moulin de la Gorce. Quite frankly I don't remember their porcelain at all. I do remember a lovely dinner however. It was quite some time ago, but I've always wanted to go back for the food and the setting. It is one of the most bucolic settings I could imagine, let alone have seen.

I am not qualified to comment on the relative merits of Limoges porcelain, but I can't over-speak our experience staying one night in the pastoral setting of Moulin de la Gorce. Our private little cottage had a stream gurgling right under it which was a part of the little lake that operated the ancient mill. The restaurant was outstanding. We wondered how it could attract anyone in such a remote location but at dinner it was completely full. This place had been recommended to us by the people in Cancale who run the great restaurant and hotel of Roellinger.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear, Not the Moulin or it's plates that are gaudy.

I was mentioning where the Moulin is located near Limoges and its product :)
