Based on earlier reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed at all. On the contrary. Excellent service - nice interior (spacious and cosy at the same time). A bit out of the city center but easy to cope on foot! Nice oysters as a starter with one extra for each person (Xmas threat!). Great Bar fish with sweet vegetables. Good... More

This was a restaurant where the superb cuisine was matched by truly wonderful hospitality. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel ' special'. The service was spot on --not overbearing but just the right amount of attentiveness . As for the menu-- not a big selection, but offering a select few fish dishes all wonderfully prepared and...

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!
