Description: 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.

We found this through our Lille guide book, nearly missed it though, tucked in down a very small side street, that normally we would have walked straight by. The name plate stood out a mile though. Very attentive waiters, lovely meal, great surroundings. Building from 1572 with the Templars coat of arms over the inner doorway. Meal reasonable cost around £38 each without wine.

We have been to Lille on a number of occasions and have sadly not tried this place before. A beautiful ancient building sympathetically turned into a fabulous restaurant.Lit with natural light streaming in through the floor to ceiling glass we enjoyed a truly great meal.The starters of snails in filo pastry flavoured with coriander were delicious. For mains we had the pork with pasta cake and a truly gorgeous sea bass dish. Beautiful desserts finished a lovely meal. Great wines and very good service meant we immediately booked for the next evening. Cannot wait for our next trip

my wife and i had dinner here during a long weekend visit to lille having failed to secure a luncheon table as there is no service after 2.00pm (note). we were very pleased with the food ,which was of very high quality. both food and wines were reasonably priced. the best thing about the place though is the wonderful 16th century building which hosts it

This is a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere and excellent staff to serve you. The food is delicious and of very high quality. There is a set price two or three course menu to select from but you will want to try it all. The deserts are to die for. It's a good sign that the locals eat here so it's always worth while booking ahead of your visit to avoid disappointment.

Good, creative food! Nice atmosphere and service. Compared to the quality it was affordable. 100 euros for two.
