As reviewed previously - staff were completely uninterested, blasé and unfriendly. Why don't these waiters find themselves another job? My main course was almost inedible - I had bream and it was completely over-cooked. If in Lille give this restaurant a wide berth!

Five of us arrived at L'Orange Bleu without a reservation on a busy night but the friendly staff found us a good table and looked after us well. The food was really well cooked and imaginative, e.g. rabbit in a mustard and cider cream sauce, and good value for a venue in central Lille just around the corner from the... More

I had no plan for dinner and walked past here, then checked Tripadvisor and it sounded good. I was worried I wasn't dressed well enough (jeans and blazer) but it was casual despite other listings online. The appetizer (croquettes) were unremarkable, but the daurade entree was great. I felt it was a good value for the money, too.

This restaurant is located in the Vieux Lille in a very nice location about 2 blocks from Place du General de Gaulle. It has a very pleasant atmosphere with calm and comfortable decor. I woud put its noise level as quiet enough for a low key conversation. I think I got the wrong dish - but then my French is... More

I opted for a traditional beef stew and it was delicious. Nice flavour and attention to small details, such as the selection of fresh breads served along side.I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and the waiting staff were brilliant. A definite must do when in Lille. Very centrally located and surrounded by bars and restaurants in the area.... More

There are a lot of very good restaurants in this town but this place is a nice mix of old fashioned but not clustered with young and very attentive staff. The first time in ages someone has asked what time intervals I would like between courses. A nice touch. The food and wine were very good and very reasonable. Will... More

Our family dined here on a Monday night with our two children. There weren't any other kids in the restaurant, which is just French in general, but they were accommodating and assisted in any way they could. The food was great and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Tucked away on a quieter street in Vieux Lille. We were celebrating good... More

My initial impression of this restaurant was that it was tastefully furnished in a fairly contemporary style of wood and stone, quite different to the other more 'rustic' restaurants that we'd eaten at in Lille. Staff welcomed us in a professional yet friendly manner, initially greeting us in French but then quickly switching to English when they realised that our... More

After walking the streets of Lille in search of a place for dinner we stumbled on L'orange Bleue. The menu looked interesting and it was also in English which was very important to us. When we walked in we asked for a table for two. Clearly the waiter knew we did not speak French. He started speaking to us in... More

We passed this restaurant on our first afternoon in Lille and thought it looked a good prospect for dinner. Back at the hotel we read the reviews on this site and decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed - this is the sort of restaurant that we normally find on our last night in a place. We are... More
