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

The worst is really the staff, since the begining completely unfriendly and helpless. The prices are way too expensive for the quality and quantity of food served. There are much better options in Lille.

Located in the 'vieux lille' the internal and external decoration of this restaurant is marvelous. However, compared to other local restaurants that serves basically the same type of dishes, l'orange bleue should improve the quality of the cuisine. It was good to be fair, but it could be better.

Lille has a plethora of bars and restaurants. On a day trip, we were looking for a really nice place to have lunch. We saw many 'possibles' but kept coming back to l'orange bleue and eventually went in. And how glad we were that we did. What a lovely atmosphere. Low lighting, relaxed, stylish. Exposed brickwork, dark wooden floors, the... More

Saw a recommendation for this place and thought we should try it. Location is good, warm welcome on arrival with a good atmosphere and surroundings! The food was very good, served and presented very well. Not certain the wine selection is as good as one should expect in France but maybe we just chose badly! Definitely a yes for a... More
