Our wine club spent the night in Lille on a Christmas booze run and had a great time. Luckily we spent time choosing a restaurant and booking well in advance. Out of all the excellent recommendations we chose this one and are glad we did. There is no menu just a choice of one, two or three plates plus cheese... More

Excellent restaurant in vieux lille. Surprise menu only, and really worth the serious food beautifully paired with great wines.

Hotel recommended this restaurant. Potato leek soup was good. The white asparagus and prosciutto were very tasty. Enjoyed the poached local white fish was very nicely cooked without being dry and was quite moist. Wines by the glass as recommended by the waiter were excellent. An most enjoyable meal.

nice and cosy, small, very friendly and efficient staff, very good prices, excellent and inventive food, fresh from the market. A surprise every time: you just indicate if you have a small, middle or large hunger and if you have any food allergies or intolerances, and then let the chef bring you the freshly cooked food! Enjoy :)

Ideal for a romantic night out. There is no menu. You can only choose how many dishes you like. (1 or 2 entrees, main dish, dessert or/and cheese plate). You also get 1 appetizer and a little snack before your meal and biscuits after your meal. When you order the waiter asks you if you don't have allergies or if... More

The one thing you need to know about this restaurant is that there is not a menu where you get to chooses what you want to eat. They have a menu and you choose how many courses you want. They also ask if you have any allergies to foods. My boyfriend and I both did the menu entrée +plat +... More

I choose this place based on comments I read on Internet and this restaurant deserves to be well rated. From the beginning to the end, everything was delicious and tasty. The ingredients are careful selected. High quality dinner! Staff is amazingly nice and funny. I will definitely go back.

Visited here on 8th August on the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Small restaurant with a lovely peaceful atmosphere. It's a surprise menu with a choice of how many courses you have - priced accordingly. We had three courses plus beers and wine for £66 for the two of us. Excellent value for such fantastic food, well cooked and... More

As mentioned by other visitors, you tell what you don't like and the chef decides what the menu is. We started with gazpacho of zucchini and yellow tomato. Then: 1. Veal with cauliflowermousse and onions, 2. gambas with tomatocoulis and crispy eggplant, 3. fish ( forgot which sweet waterfish)with yellow zucchini, soury cherrytomato and cream of artichoke. 4. Choice of... More
