Visited for dinner for my fiancés birthday after seeing the Trip Advisor reviews and the place totally lived up to the expectations created. I went with the very friendly waitress recommendations of razor fish and cous cous with lobster and had one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The other dishes we tried were the foie gras and...

Went here for lunch after reading other reviews and was certainly not disappointed. Charming staff and really good food. There were a number of empty tables in the rather large restaurant but the way the place was decorated gave it an intimate feeling. Really worth visiting for a good meal.

This is within walking distance of the centre of Lille, albeit rather a long walk. So you could go by taxi. However you get there, I would certainly urge you to go. This is a wonderful fish restaurant. We had the crab croquettes followed by the catch-of-the-day sea bass – not cheap, but perfectly cooked and very tasty. The menu... More

We popped in here the day before our wedding anniversary to reserve a table, and were so glad we did so. The meal was great, from the starters of crab croquettes, through to the lobster and prawn kebab, and finishing with mille feuille and a strawberry concoction whose name escapes me. A superb bottle of Pouilly Fuissé helped the meal... More

In a quiet neighbourhood, off the beaten track, lovely place with refined food. An international classic. The staff is professional and courtious, you know you're in a good place when the menu is on a big chalk board that gets moved to your table. Expect a pricey night well worth it!

At last! A very good place in Lille, friendly staff, great food wit superb ingredients (it is all fish by the way). King prawns tempura, great sea bass mango tartar... A giant grilled turbot with delicious local veggies, a delicious plate of several fishes, tasty desserts (creme brûlée, chocolate mousse, millefeuilles reinvented...) all going down with a vieilles vignes pouilly...

Quai 38 is located in a not-so-charming just-off-city-centre steet, but once inside, there's only accolades that come to mind. The decor is very pleasing, the waiter/waitresses are very friendly, charming and courteous. Regulars are greeted with a kiss and the atmosphere is cozy. The food is simply fantastic. We skipped the first course and were blown away by the main... More

My wife and I had an awesome dinner here. It's a beautiful restaurant and the food is delicious. The menu is not very large but there is something for everyone. And it's nice that the tables are not crammed next to each other. Service was excellent, very friendly too. Would love to go back.
