We were send to this restaurant by recommendation of the Carlton Hotel in Lille and we were not disappointed. The restaurant offers fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was really good and we really enjoyed our meal. A well know dutch politician was eating here at the same time we were.

We pre booked our table which was just as well as it was very busy. However the service was excellent and the staff very attentive. As it was a set menu there were some courses that we may not have chosen but were well presented and cooked perfectly. We had a fantastic evening and would probably visit again when the... More

Good service - imaginative food - menus in English and vegetarian available for those interested. Lovely as a treat - we had the Plat de Jour in our case sea bream cooked to perfection. Wine was from Chile ; Carménère which is an ancient variety from Bordeaux.

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

  • 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.
