We have visited this restaurant every time we have been to Lille for the great food. Oh dear, times have changed. We started with tempura asparagus, just two spears, served on an eggy sauce with white asparagus from a jar. The tempura could be eaten with your fingers but as the food was served in a small bowl the rest... More

Went here whilst on a romantic weekend away (apart from the 30,000 odd slightly drunk Swiss football fans :-) )The food was really good and refreshingly creative. The service was a tad slow but that' was the only grumble....

The welcome we received was excellent and the food was wonderful. An imaginative menu was a very pleasant change after a series of good but largely formulaic and unadventurous dinners in Aix en Provence. The quail starter was utterly brilliant and the turbot which followed was truly outstanding. Service from the charming professional servers was pleasant and engaging. We will... More

We had the 3 courses for €35 menu which was delicious. Good reasonably priced Wine and Table water for free which we are so used to in the UK but doesn't seem to be common in France. Staff very friendly and would recommend.

This was our first visit to Lille and as we strolled around the old part of the city looking for somewhere to eat we came across "Le Compostelle". We were made to feel very welcome and the three of us had a delicious meal accompanied by a very pleasant bottle of wine. It is not a cheap place to eat... More

We really enjoyed the food and dining at Le Compostelle, the restaurant is fine dining, romantic but lacked atmosphere, The beautiful building is quite incredible, service was good as with the food!

We went here for a friends birthday it was really well laid out. The restaurant had put us in our own private room so that we didn't disturb the other guests. The food was good with the option of a number of set menus which also came with wine. Service was great and there were no issues at all with... More

This restaurant is an old coaching inn which has been interestingly restored and updated. The menu is good and generally the food was certainly excellent, but not in all cases. We were a party of 7, the booking made through our hotel and we arrived at 7.30, the first to arrive. Some of our party ordered starters and these were... More

We returned to Le compostelle tonight and to be honest it didn't live up to last time. My starter of crab cannoli was inventive and good, although the tomato purée base was overwhelming. My dining companion starter was green pea gazpacho was fresh and different in a good way. It was when the entrees (main courses) arrived my turbot was... More

  • This restaurant is at Le Compostelle
Lille is now only 80 minutes from London by Eurostar.

Le Compostelle is located in the old city centre, and the restaurant is the ideal place to combine shopping and gastronomy.

This former relay from Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle which dates back to the 16th century has become a gourmet paradise.
