We came here to celebrate a birthday, and the place itself wowed us! The building has been wonderfully converted, and we had a small room all to ourselves (there were 8 of us). The food was some of the best I've had, not expensive, and we had the most lovely waiters.

I write this review from the point of view of someone who has worked front of house, and is currently a chef at a high-end hotel. I appreciate that hospitality is a very hard industry to work in, and from what I could see, only two waiters meant that service suffered from what I can only assume is a lack... More

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
