Came here with friends when we were in Lille to watch football. Food was okay pretty poor in general. We had escargot and I had Le Welsh which is similar to Welsh rarebit. Sat outside which was nice but food unspectacular and quite expensive.

On a very rainy day in Lille we stopped here for some lunch and got exactly what we were looking for; comfy and relaxing atmosphere, pleasant waiters and great French food. The snails were full of garlic, herbs and butter. The lamb was brilliantly cooked and the beef (with Foie Gras) I am told by my partner was amazing. Add... More

Outdated and don't hope to find a light cuisine but the real brasserie kitchen : bavette, onglet, tartare, pommel frites, escargots de bourgogne : tasteful but so greasy. So try their salades, forget the calories and watch the frenchies. You'll enjoy it.

Stumbled across the Brasserie whilst trying to find somewhere good to eat, what a treat! The staff made us and our 1 year old feel so welcome. Great meal of scampi starter followed by duck confit. Great wine, lovely service, restaurant packed on a week night!

Lovely white linen table clothes. Menu only in French but waiter helped used with our broken French . Welsh rarebit was more like cheese on toast with ham and French fries but tasty. My husband had the duck which was beautiful. But would have been better with veg.my friend a profiteroles which were huge and would have served two people.... More

We have visited Brasserie Andre on around a dozen occasions on trips to Lille over the course of around 16 years and have always really enjoyed the relaxed and traditional dining room and excellent service by the waiters who we recognise year on year. As ever, we had a fantastic lunch with a lovely claret and welcoming service.

Every time we're lucky enough to visit Lille, we take a break for lunch here. Much loved by local people, you get a real feeling for authentic France. It's also a place that people return to. On the next table was an elderly couple who had first met as students at Lille's university. Many diners come for the restaurant's speciality:... More

Lille is not well served for restaurants, but this is a reliable old place. Classic French cooking with the odd Flemish dish, and nicely old fashioned service. Waiter was however rather forgetful, and asking two or three ties for things became annoying.Prices are high though so watch you way on the menu.
