Was a little dubious as it is located nr EuroLille and the train station. however food and service were fantastic, esp good considering small children in tow that needed to share food. Great experience. Thanks

The food was good but the service was awful. We were waiting for 15 minutes to order and another 20 minutes to bring the bill.

This was a small bar-restaurant on the main through-fare. We managed to order, but there was no one that spoke English. The food was good.

A few years ago I had a good salad at this place. Just been again today, had a very bad burger and the fries ( cold ) were awful ! It's probably just good enought to have a soft drink as you can be sure they didn't made it. Staff was hopeless, average bad French behavior. Too bad.

I can't comment on the hotel apart from it is over the road from the main station (not the EuroLille) and seemed popular. It felt like a little part from 'Bienvenue chez les ch'tis', one of my favourite films, old geezers supping Grimergen and taling completely incomprehensible 'Ch'tis', the local dialect. It was really friendly considering it's situation near the... More

We ended up on the 1st Floor in an empty dining room. After we had orderd drinks, we found out that we were not alone : apparently a mouse also lived in the dining room, just next to the kitchen. We paid our drinks and left asap! Absolutely to avoid!

I was regular visitor of this bar for 6-7 months. Perfect place to have beer with colleagues on Friday evening. But nothing more that that. Food has never been good here. I had once bad experience even with French Fries.

On a recent trip back to the UK by train I had to change trains at Lille, and with an hour or so to fill I wandered in town. This is the first restaurant you come across and since it started to rain I moved under cover. Like a fly caught on a spiders web I was trapped, took a... More

This has to be the WORST French restaurant I have ever been to, and I lived there for a year and visi frequently. The food was horrible. The sauce might have been a bit of flour mixed with milk and butter, the chicken might have been an animal. Even the beers they served were not very good. The service -... More
