Absolutely fantastic

Coming from South Africa, you would think that a good steak can not be found anywhere else in the world... After a wonderful family gathering at La Tete de Beouf, I can say that I have never had such a good steak. We had the secret sauce as well as Roquefort sauce, and it was sublime. Thank you... read more

The food, wine and service couldn't be faulted and the price was reasonable (approx 80 Euro for three courses, sparkling water, wine and coffee) A recent reviewer was uninspired by the savoury creme brulee with Chorizo - not us. The egg was prepared perfectly, with a rich flavour and a creamy texture that struck just the right balance between a... More

After reading great reviews on TripAdvisor my partner and I were keen to try this place out. Whilst the service was good the overall standard of the food was rather unspectacular. My creme brulee with chorizo was just scrambled egg with chorizo. The main of a shepherds pie style dish with duck was uninspiring. The chocolate desert was out of... More

I picked this place after researching on Trip Advisor. We were only in Lille for one night as part of a long drive through Europe, so wanted to pick the right place. We certainly achieved that! Our experience started with me telephoning to make a reservation before we left the UK. There was no answer and I was not confident... More

Maybe my expectations were too high for a French steak house but the noisette de boeuf and the airaignée de boeuf were chewy. Is it that difficult to have good meat in France ? Heureusement good service and good wine for a reasonable price.

This place is a five minute walk from the Grand Place and is well worth a visit. They have a variety of table layouts so you don’t have to be on top of the table next to you as is so often the case. The service is very good and the meat is also. They do have other stuff, but... More

Searched this restaurant out based on previous reviews. Food OK, but the steak I had was a bit chewy. 3 courses with wine and coffee €48.60, rather pricey for what it does.

We found this restaurant after researching options in Lille on Trip Advisor. I thoroughly recommend La tete de Boeuf. The steak for which they are justifiably proud was excellent as was the duck that my partner had. The wine was excellent, service attentive and prompt and the ambience was perfect. There were a lot of regulars and families dining there... More

Took six colleagues for a lunch on a Thursday and the steak was beautiful. I'm not a great fan of beef but I have to say I cannot wait to go back and will take my wife next time who loves steak. Thoroughly recommend the food and hospitality

This place is a tip top quality steak house and as it stands in the restaurant’s name: “beef’s head” it is a place to have meat and mainly beef (else make another choice). And, in line with specific way in France for slicing the Beef muscles you are proposed different pieces, more or less fat, more or less tender (some... More
