We chose this restaurant because of the free glass of champagne offered on our map. The service was indifferent, the waiter wandered off in the middle of taking our order. We ordered moules frites, but were very disappointed to find them over cooked, as if prepared beforehand, then a sauce added later. Obviously aimed at tourists, I would be surprised if the locals eat here.

This old-established brasserie is on the Rue Bethune - one of Lille's main shopping areas, with Galleries Lafayette a stones throw away - and serves not only Moules, but a wide variety of traditional French dishes. The service is excellent, the ambiance very "brasserie" and pleasantly buzzy and the prices reasonable. This is not Michelin Star cooking, but good value straightforward French classic dishes served efficiently in a nice atmosphere. As others have said, an early lunch beats the rush and with 3 Cinemas very adjacent the evenings can also be busy. Safe choice for the centre of Lille.

We were looking for a place to have mussels and fries which is a must when you visit Lille and set our mind on this place which seems popular also with locals.
It was a good surprise. Good food, reasonably priced and great service. The mussels could have been a bit more garlicky and the table a bit roomier but that would be the extend of my complaints.
We spent Euros 60 for two. For that price we had two beers and a large bottle of sparkling water, two starters (marrow bone and a cheese tart) and two sets of moules frites.
The service was excellent, our server Julien knew when to show up and clear up the table and when to stay away. Would we come back to Rouen we would definitely try this place again.

Lovely food - good selection of other things if you don't like mussels; very popular with the locals - get there by 12.30 else you will be queuing for a seat. Waiter very very nice and managed our lack of French very graciously - even have English menu if you need it.
