Confit de Canard was great

Visited with extended family - everyone was very pleased with their order, but be careful with the 'crevettes grises' (Google 'crangon crangon' in English) as they are little shrimp rather than bigger prawns. Delicious sorbet. In general the food was very rich, so be warned if you don't like... read more

Came to Lille for a day trip. It was no surprise that nobody speaks English or Italian - nevertheless I respect the right of people to speak only the local language, my fault for not mastering French. Got hungry and started looking for the place with no tourists in. Found it! Waiters were very friendly and made their best to... More

My Italian friend and I got cut short travelling back from France due to the problems at Calais, so we diverted to Lille, where I promised to buy Dinner as he had got time off from the family to join me on a 'Bucket List' ride. He then called a friend who recommended this place. Hats off to both of... More

Really good food, top class menu and service. Wood panelling unchanged in decades, very busy, book! What I dislike is the 100 word minimum for these reviews.

The congierge at our hotel suggested this restaurant for people who wanted to eat meat and it was spot on. We were fairly early so managed to find a table without a reservation, but soon after we were seated the place filled up quickly. Our waiter was fantastic, able to explain the dishes on the menu (no English menu) and... More

Reminded us of the typical Paris brasserie of yesteryear. The building had been there for centuries and one would guess the Brasserie had lasted about the same time. Olde World with just the right touch of decoration. Crisp table clothes and napkins, sparkling glassware and good silver. A delightful table to sit at. Menu was extensive although my lady and...

I went for Monday lunch with low expectations, based on the reviews in French which wrote of mediocre food, and even "deception" and "tourist trap" What I found was a place 75% full on a Monday, with what seemed to be locals I had scampi, veal blanquette and a traditional chocolate mousse, and a glass of shiraz for 56 euro...
