We were looking for a place to have a seafood meal & we were very lucky to find such a great place such as Quai 38. The stuff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Then the food started to be served this was the knock out. Very good presentation and very very delicious. We had couscous à l'homard, dorade royale... More

From the moment my son and I walked in, noticeably English on another day of being English in Lille is an embarrassment, we were made welcome. We love great food and wine and were not disappointed. The oysters from Brittany were as plump as me but tastier. The razor clams and clams as entree were scummy. The St Pierre and... More

We visited as a group of 4 on a Friday night and we were warmly welcomed by all of the staff. The chef and owner coming out and chatting to us was a lovely touch! The food was exceptional - a fairly small menu but each dish was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. Make sure you leave room for dessert... More

On a girls weekend break from the UK the six of us visited Quai 38. The service was exceptional and all of the staff were very friendly and attentive. Every meal that arrived was beautifully presented and all of us commented how delicious it was. Highly recommended!

Quai 38 is not in a particularly attractive street and lies somewhat at the far end of the "Vieux Lille" - however the cuisine, the atmosphere and reception by the staff in this restaurant are exceptional. At lunchtimes in the week you can eat pretty reasonably. The prices are slightly over the "average" but well, well worth it. Quai 38... More

I agree with other reviews below - although a little outside Lille centre, Quai 38 is definitely worth a visit. From the moment we walked through the door the staff were friendly and attentive - in fact I would go as far to say that nothing was too much trouble for them. They explained the menu in full to us... More

All six of us descended for a birthday celebration. We had the most attentive maître de who explained in detail the tantalising menu. The chef came and introduced himself. We opened with a couple of bottles of chilled champagne, cassis and salmon pate. We sashed through the cavernous dining room which has been dramatically divided by sliding screens to provide...
