My wife and i visited Quai 38 on a Friday evening and were the first customers to walk in at 7.30. We were warmly greeted by the very friendly and joyful staff. The restaurant is quite large and tables are spaced out. The menu was...quite diverse with many different fish. I had a delicious tuna with foie gras as a starter, followed by an excellent monkfish with the best caramelized endives ever. My wife’s plates were equally excellent. Desserts were home made and nicely presented. All along, the staff was very caring yet not overwhelming. No “fausse note”. We will surely come again!More

We went here on a Saturday evening. It was a nice walk through old Lille and this restaurant is just on the border of it. The restaurant is really nice decorated. It has a luxurious high class feel with enough space between the tables. The...service is great and the food is excellent. Must try is you like fish/seafood.More

Its not (quite) in the center but its really worth the short walk. Fish restaurant and they obviously know what they are doing. Trendy surroundings, attentive service without being overbearing and excellent cooking. What more could you want!

Must be the best Fishrestaurant in Lille. From start to dessert everything was excellent, best quality and very well prepared. Very nicely decorated restaurant and charming Host and Hostess. A must if you like fish and seafood.

Beautiful meal at this stylish yet inviting and relaxed restaurant. The menu is a seafood lovers dream - great choice. Both starters and mains were wonderfully tasty and lovely, fresh ingredients. Could not say one negative about anything we had. Love the ambience of the...space, large yet intimate at the same time. It was a 10-15minute walk from the old town but worth it! Not to be missed and cannot wait to return. CharlotteMore

Great meal, classy restaurant, good quality-price. Highly recommend. Only slight negative, nothing to do with the restaurant, as the surrounding dinners are wined and dined they progressively become louder and louder until you cant have a conversation at your own table. Deafening. So if you...want a romantic meal and whisper sweet nothings to each other, arrive very early!! Or just shout loudly! I'm not sure what the cause of the problem is. I do note that northerners are very friendly and helpful people, several stopped to offer us assistance as we roamed the streets of Lille. Perhaps they are just more expressive and noisy that those from Lyon or Paris. Or perhaps its just the great food and wine after all!More

Great restaurant offering great food and great service. Came up with vegetarian meal for my friend, with no fuss at all. Simply superb scallops and puddings to die for. Around 60 Euros a head, with very nice wine, for three course meal. I will definitely...return next time I am in Lille.More

Made reservations for Quai38 in advance of our stay in Lille. Did not want to miss this for a wonderful evening with my wife, who is a food snob like myself. We enjoyed the atmosphere and service. The staff makes you feel very welcome. Dishes...were original and putting the quality of the food in its power. This tasted like a starry starry night! Bertrand cum suis... thanks for this experience.More
