We visited here last night and loved it! Cosy and unpretentious, the service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive and the food delicious. Our delightful waitress translated the menu for us brilliantly. We both had the terrine, the pork and the cheese plate with a bottle of Sancerre, perfect. Not cheap but not ridiculously expensive, worth every penny.

Very cozy, quite place. In fact, it's one room, which isnt big. Therefore dont see it as a family dinner place (wt small kids). The menu is short (love that) meaning fresh. The service is temperate, English-like. The food is good. Definitely worth to try

With only 3 choices per course you can see the seasonality of the menu and everything is very well cooked. An Amuse Bouche to start was followed by plates of Morels and then either Monkfish with petite seasonal vegetables or for me some very well cooked rose veal with green and wild asparagus. The latter was a revelation - never... More

Amazing cosy home style restaurant but with a huge touch of the French gourmet standard. A small selection of highly elaborated dishes compose the menu but it is enough to enjoy the delightfulness of northern French cuisine. Reserve in advance as it is a small place but totally worth visiting.

Located in central "old Lille" L'Atelier Gourmand is a little gem with only 20 seats, thus a reservation is strongly recommended. Inspired by the good reviews on TA and also other restaurant portals, I spontaneously went there on a weekday and was lucky to get a seat without reservation. The menu is written on a blackboard and nicely explained by... More

We had an enjoyable meal here, the other night. The staff were excellent, friendly and very patient with us as we didn't speak French. The meal was delicious, fish well cooked, followed by a yummy desert. Highly recommend.

Very small and cosy. Nice service from front of house. Really decent food made from decent ingredients. Roast pork came with a little of the best black pudding ever. Very good cheeses. Puddings were ok. In all it was the best meal of the weekend. I would definitely recommend.
