The best part of this restaurant: the numerous varieties of Leffe beer on tap, many of which are not available in the US. The not-so-good part: the food is pretty blah. The menu exudes a "chain restaurant" air. The moules frites I had were prettyu bland, both the frites--from frozen french fry stock, methinks--and the special "moules cafe leffe", cooked in leffe beer but lacking much flavor at all. And no baguette to soak up the broth! But since the broth didn't taste like much, maybe no loss. All in all I've had far, far better moules frites in my hometown in the midwest USA.

We went to cafe Leffe on New Year's Day - little was open so everywhere was really busy and many places turned us away. The staff here were making an effort to fit everyone in and were very pleasant. Had a lovely glass of wine and a delicious fresh liege style waffle. Impressed.

have been using this restaurant for many years, lucky enough to recently spend the weekend in Lille with a group of friends, have raved to them for years about the place and we were not disappointed- staff as usual could not have been more friendly and helpful, chose to eat in the covered area outside each time we went - had superb views of the central square and its Christmas lights and the enormous ferris wheel - food was fantastic as it always is and I can highly recommend the local liqueurs to finish a great night !! also used for breakfasts which were equally fantastic , hot chocolate superb - please have a meal here if you get the chance

We stayed in Lille recently and ate here the three nights. The atmosphere was good, the Leffe served in Leffe glasses was thoroughly enjoyed, and the food was good. There was a good choice on the menu - yes I know it is probably not the best place to eat in Lille but if you are looking for somewhere relaxed and informal, this restaurant is good.
