Does anyone eat at this restaurant (we do and its fab) and know what's happened to them?.  They went on holiday about a month ago and now when we phone to make a reservation all we get is a recorded message saying they're not there at the moment......  I fear either a marital breakup or they've gone bankrupt.  They did the best menu du jour I've ever eaten, and I've eaten a lot.........

hi we will shortly be staying near the Uni in Le Mans on a Monday night and wondered if anyone could recommend a nice bistro or similar to eat in the evening.  Not too expensive but not fast food. tia

I was given lots of avocados but unfortunately they are really hard. I've heard that you can put bananas next to them to speed the ripening process but it doesn't seem to be doing anything so far...does anyone have any other tips?

My previous topic on snails has got me thinking about other "wild foods". Back in UK I used to pick brambles, wild garlic and hazlenuts and I'd love to do some foraging here. Do any other readers go foraging? What is safe/legal for us to pick in this region? Any other comments or thoughts welcome.

Can anyone help me find out if there is a limit to how mant bottles I can put in my car?  We enjoy tasting and buying wine from the vineyards here in France. However my french friend tells me there are rules on how much you can put in your car and drive with. This is wine for personal consumption within France. I think she may be thinking of taking wine out of the country (uk customs do stop people who carry vans full of booze, I know) but she is adamant its within France.  Nobody we've bought wine from has indicated there is a limit but it wouldn't be in their interest. any ideas on this.

Hi, I daresay its been asked before but I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has found a Chinese Restaurant based somewhere between Chatearoux and Limoges that they would recommend? We tried the one at La Souterraine and it was OK but I'm hoping to find something better!
