Description: Lille is now only 80 minutes from London by Eurostar. Le Compostelle is located in the old city centre, and the restaurant is the ideal place to combine shopping and gastronomy. This former relay from Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle which dates back to the 16th century has become a gourmet paradise.

Quite pricey menu... More

Was taken here for lunch by Lillois friend. She and her seriously foody English husband plus her French family have dined here many times and reckon it to be the best restaurant in Lille. having eaten several times in Lille in the past few years, I would have to agree! We arrived early for our booking but they weren't very... 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

We first visited this restaurant some years ago and had a wonderful experience so when we decided to revisit Lille we telephoned to make a reservation. However when we arrived there was no reservation. As the restaurant was completely empty they found us a table behind reception (not the best place). The food was sloppily presented and the waiters over... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner recently. We chose a Sunday evening, which is traditionally quiet in France. There were only 4 tables occupied and only one waiter on duty but he was very efficient and courteous. The food was very good, if a little expensive, and I think on a busier night, the atmosphere and ambience would be lovely. I... More

A group of us went, we all went upstairs. The food was nice, it cost us over 30Euro for a 3 course meal. The only problem was the waitresses didn’t speak English, so we had to wait for a waiter, who could understand us. We only spoke a little French, so our meals were delayed. Most of us were getting...

I took my partner to Lille for the weekend to celebrate her....errrr....a special birthday. Le Compostelle was recommended by the Carlton Hotel, where we were staying. And I have to say the restaurant was stunning. The service was impeccable, as was the food. The presentation is rather modern, which is not normally my style. But I am now a convert,... More
