We had a delicious lunch here at a very affordable price. The restaurant has a 'bib gourmand' appreciation from Michelin. It's small and cosy. Unfortunately the 'patronne' wasn't very warm-hearted. She didn't seem to do her job with pleasure.

They have restored a period townhouse with extraordinary quality of detail, carved out four luxe suites and rooms with dining and sitting area on the ground floor.

My husband and I went to Le Champlain for our 5 yr wedding anniversary. We stayed in Suite 4 and were blown away with the beauty of the suite and decor.

My wife and I have eaten here regularly for seven years in this family-owned and managed business, and it is the best restaurant of its type in Lille. M. Gaboriau's dishes are always highly creative and original - you never see them anywhere else. Two fixed menus are offered, le menu du marche and a fish menu; the dishes change... More
