We have visited Brasserie Andre on around a dozen occasions on trips to Lille over the course of around 16 years and have always really enjoyed the relaxed and traditional dining room and excellent service by the waiters who we recognise year on year. As ever, we had a fantastic lunch with a lovely claret and welcoming service.

Every time we're lucky enough to visit Lille, we take a break for lunch here. Much loved by local people, you get a real feeling for authentic France. It's also a place that people return to. On the next table was an elderly couple who had first met as students at Lille's university. Many diners come for the restaurant's speciality:... More

Lille is not well served for restaurants, but this is a reliable old place. Classic French cooking with the odd Flemish dish, and nicely old fashioned service. Waiter was however rather forgetful, and asking two or three ties for things became annoying.Prices are high though so watch you way on the menu.

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 that! More expensive than average but probably worth it in quality.... 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
