Good honest food

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.

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

I've visited here with my friends We are student, so we went to lunch there which is only 17€. Although my French was bad and we ordered the cheapest set , the waiter was so kind to us. Also the meal was superb! I'd like to visit here again.

Came here because of Tripadvisor reviews and rating. It was the worst meal I have had in many years - anywhere in the world. Not just awful food but wine and service too. Maybe there has been a change ownership or something, but I would steer well clear if I were you. A total waste of money.

We booked this restaurant after reading the other positive reviews and from a local recommendation. First issue was the wine menu where half the wine selections were "crossed out" by hand. Unfortunately for us, the crossed out selections were the better wines. Next, the menu was presented as a "Menu Eyes Closed" meaning Chef's surprise menu where one person chooses... More

Visited the restaurant with husband for his 60th birthday with our 2 sons aged 25 and 21. We all had the suprise menu for around 30 euros. The food was delicious and we are hard to please so that says it all. We started with an amuse bouche of pumpkin soup with lemon oil. We then had a soup size... More
