Good Find

Recommended and booked by our hotel who also managed to get us a free drink on arrival. The set menus offer a good choice and the food was excellent, although we eat early the restaurant soon filled up and proved very popular with local people. Would certainly go back if in Lille

Recommended and booked by our hotel receptionist - an excellent choice. Amazing food - very old building with loads of character. We had a table booked for 7pm so quite early by French standards, but it got very busy later. We ate in the courtyard as you go in but there seemed to be lots of other levels and rooms... More

We have eaten here before and were remembered by Donatien who gave us aware welcome. The food is always delicious and interesting and we were not disappointed this time. Huge prawns wrapped in shredded veg and lettuce leaves were huge and would have been a good main course but were only starters. The main was a pork dish so delicious... More

reserved for 2 persons for dinner . as you walk in the restaurant, the impressive interior building has something and really makes you to expect the same from the menu . we choose the discovering menu, selected wines inclusive . while nipping our apero, all of a sudden the appetizers bread was taken away . lucky that the 'amuses' arrived...

Quite pricey menu... More

From outside the Restaurant looked good. Menu showed promise and the general service was good. However with the exception of the OK sweets the food was poor. Presentation was not good and much was overcooked. There were tasty moments but lacked any feel of quality. In all honesty there was nothing special at all. Chef needs to up his/her game... More

We visited this restaurant recently and have to say to meal was fantastic. I started with scallops and they were cooked to perfection. Steak Rosini was just as good for my main course. I couldn't fault the service the surroundings or the meal. Excellent. So nice to go to a restaurant that has such high standards.

The steep spiral staircase is not for the feint hearted. We were seated and comfortable and getting ready for lunch when we were then told to move one floor higher. This seemed a very strange manoeuvre. The lamb was tough with lots of gristle, but the dessert was beautifully served on slates and thus saved the lunch from being a... More
