We fell into the trap of picking a cafe nearby the main tourist area because we were hungry. The service was pretty poor, no smiles or friendly greeting. The food was overpriced and quality really poor. I would advise going further out for tasty treats

The worst meat I have had in my life. Asked for well done, got raw inside totally burned oustide. The waitress did not ask why the meat stayed on the plate and brought the bill for 15 minutes.

Food was OK, but staff a bit preoccupied. Nice little place on the Grand'Place, and not expensive.

Tasty steak tartare, but when we came back for drinks out on the terrace the next day, the service was not very friendly.

June 2009: We like Lille but were certainly made to feel like unwelcome tourists at this "restaurant". Let's keep it brief:
- We were ignored while a French couple who sat down after us were served first
- Menus were brusquely presented with no chance to request an aperitif
- No mussels available although they were on the menu - a Lille speciality!
- Starters fine but again difficult to order a drink
- Mains; chicken dry, steak not up to French standard
- Cheese arrived with butter but no bread or knife! 10 minute wait to get this sorted
- Bill requested and arrived promptly; unfortunately followed by a 20 minute wait to pay despite 4 separate requests..... No apology, no reduction in service charge, proprietor called staff over not to apologise but to tell them that we were complaining. How dare we??!
- At least it wasn't personal; other people waited for tables to be cleared & laid, wrong orders were delivered, staff disorganised & forgetful, others had long waits to pay, bills presented to the wrong tables - it goes on. Almost amusing for a while but the novelty wore off very quickly.
Like many Brits we're usually very slow to complain - but this place deserves it.
