As mentioned by other visitors, you tell what you don't like and the chef decides what the menu is. We started with gazpacho of zucchini and yellow tomato. Then: 1. Veal with cauliflowermousse and onions, 2. gambas with tomatocoulis and crispy eggplant, 3. fish ( forgot which sweet waterfish)with yellow zucchini, soury cherrytomato and cream of artichoke. 4. Choice of... More

We came across this restaurant by accident and the sparkling glass and well set tables set a high precedent. We weren't disappointed in the least. A welcoming waiter who asked us our likes and dislikes and then one waits for the delicious surprises that are brought out. Parmesan amuse bouche, a starter of a macedoine of fresh tomato, celery, avocado... More

The waiting staff is friendly, they have good wine/champagne at reasonable price. The menu is small but it is because everything is made from scratch. They have a surprise menu. You just need to tell them what you like or dislike. The decor could do with some improvement but all in all a very good experience. Would definitely go back

As ever the Gout Du Jour does not disappoint 3 of us had a wonderful meal I am not a fan of fish but the cod we had was beautiful and I really enjoyed it. One downside is that don't expect a quick meal it is worth waiting for but service is a bit skow.

Au Gout du Jour serves up good honest food. The ingredients are fresh, the tastes are well balanced and for 32€ for the 3-course chef's choice menu a good bargain. Don't expect fine dining and you won't be disappointed. Other reviewers commented on the long waiting times, we were there on a packed Saturday evening and the timing between the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant without realising it was a surprise menu, however we were really glad we took the gamble as it was delicious! Each course was beautifully presented with gourmet touches, such as white truffle and an excellent selection of wines to match. Perfect sized portions to satisfy without feeling stuffed and friendly staff. Made for a lovely... More

We stumbled on this place walking through the backstreets of Lille. We tried to get a lunch reservation but as it was around 2.30 they were just closing after lunch service so we reserved for dinner. What a gem! The other reviewers are correct - there is no menu but the waiter will ask you if there is anything you... More
