“Does what it says on the can – open Mondays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This restaurant is exactly what one expects from a good French brasserie – good food at a reasonable price. It is open on Mondays when most others are closed.

“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

L'Illustre is in the old part of town, right by the square which is lovely to see. The service was fantastic but sadly the food was only average unlike the prices.

“One of the open restaurants at sundays!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We could not find many good restaurants who where open at sunday nights, so we choose this brasserie; nice location, friendly servant.
We had pate de foie for entree; my wife had the Ilustre Burger and I had the Faux Filet. Both were very good.
Combined with a bottle of Pinot Gris it was a lovely dinner

“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

L'illustre has really nice interieur, great and attentive staff and great food! They also have a english meny, which you can't expect most places in France. The mood is nice and never stressful even with a full restaurant, and the noise level doesen't get uncomfortable as it can with full restaurants. the waiters are professional, pleasant and the right amount of attentive. there is also a bar in the basement for weekend visits, a really cool space too!

“A trendy restaurant in Troyes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This trendy restaurant in a beautiful setting serves traditional cooking of the Champagne region. It also serves other traditional French cooking. L'Illustré has a good wine list to accompany your meal. Order the famous Andouillette de Troyes when you visit this restaurant. The food is excellent and you will not regret having your meal here when you are in Troyes!
