A nice restaurant with great service, the whole staff was very nice. The plates were not too expensive and really good. And the crumble was absolutely amazing. Will definitely go again!

Here was the only open restaurant that we found in Lille afternoon. We had meatballs, pasta and cesar salad. All of the meals were moderate. There is English menu.

We came because of the reviews, and perhaps it's because they were so busy but frankly the meal was mediocre... thankfully the decor is inviting although the chairs are hard and uncomfortable and the toilets insufficient (2) and dirty/smelly in that very French of ways....More
