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

Went here based on a quick search on tripadvisor and was glad to see it meets its promise: this is a good restaurant for an excellent price quality ratio. We took the 3 course meal, and were surprised by the creme brulee with chorizo, while the other started was what one expect. The burger was again a very good surprise.... More

Booked for a Saturday night and one needed to. The place was full but the staff seemed to cope fine and service was efficient and pleasant. The menu is not huge but what they did was very good - including 3 or 4 different types of steaks. These were also some fish options and the scallops as a starter were... More

Booked this as a special meal. Found on TripAdvisor and then used a French online booking service La Fourchette which also got me a discount, always nice! Very helpful staff (bilingual if you needed it, I didn't). Had to send my first steak back as it wasn't rare enough! (because we were English they'd upped the cuisson a notch) but... More

We found out about this small restaurant the evening before our day trip to Lille by reading Tripadvisor. One quick phone call (in English) and we were booked On arrival the staff were welcoming and polite - a bonus was a menu in English. We chose off the fixed price menu and didn't have room for a sweet. There was... More

Had a really superb meal at this restaurant, the owner is a delight to deal with, very pleasant and helpful. We had the premium steak which was cooked to perfection, and the burger served on a bed and top of potato was equally delightful. It filled up very quickly, which given the reasonable pricing and the quality of the food... More

My family came to visit me from England this weekend and we came to eat at la tête de Boeuf. The service was fantastic, all the waiters were friendly and we were seen to in an attentive yet laid back manner which meant we were able to enjoy our meal rather than feel rushed. We all ate off the extremely... More
