“Great place if you like steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Service good. Food excellent.
If you go make a booking first. This place is popular and rightly so. The food from starter to desert is excellent. Try the creme brulee & choritzo. Sounds odd tastes good

“What a lovely surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Charming, unexpected and very good food. Biased towards meat but fish options as well and very attentive service. The wine list is modest but well chosen, prices to match. Full of local people, they obviously appreciate the simplicity, good prices and unpretentious service.

“Excellent, straightforward restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a friendly, local restaurant, a short distance from the centre of Lille. We think that is an advantage as it is such good value for seriously good food. The main courses are pretty straightforward, mostly high quality steak. Some of the starters and puddings are really interesting and also tasty.

Service is perfect; friendly, helpful and humorous but not at all intrusive.

“Good value and good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Found this place via TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Simple French food - good ingredients and good simply, with much the same garnishes and sides for all the menu options. The chocolate micuit we shared for dessert was to die for and the steaks were pretty good too. Service was a little slow at times and our expressos didn't arrive - but minor details. Good value and good food.

“Best I have tasted in a while”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Fantastic, just returned from long weekend, took recommendation from Trip advisor asnd was all I read and more, food was fantastic, service lovely, the staff went out of thier way to accomodate our requirements.I actually had Duck (my mouth is watering writing this!) my mum had the beef - if you are going to Lille make this a must, a bit off beaten track but takes 10mins to walk from Centre and easy to find.
