This a real gem. The food is quite superb, but it is the attention to detail from the owner and his clear love of what he is doing which comes across so positively. He speaks really good English and has none of the standoff behaviour which is sometimes characteristic of French restaurants. Will return.

We chose to eat here after reading the reviews on trip advisor, we were not disappointed. The restaurant is situated on the Rue de Lille in the old town, there is a good choice of restaurants along this main stretch. The restaurant is quite small, seating just 12 upstairs and 12 downstairs. The host (a big Eric Clapton fan) was very welcoming and hugely entertaining, and the food was fabulous! Meat is the speciality here, although they do have other dishes - try the onglet steak (called the hanger or butchers steak in the UK) very tasty and best enjoyed rare; it was delightful. The set menu is €22 for three courses and is great value. The wine is also great! It is best to book in advance!

We went here in January after reading the reviews on here and were not disappointed. The owner/waiter was really friendly and happily talked us through the menu and put up with our GCSE French. The food was fantastic and the prices very reasonable.
We will definitely be returning

Having read reviews here we (2 couples from the UK on a day out) lunched at La Grillardine, having made a booking online which was promptly confirmed. Parking in the square was easy - and free. We were give a friendly welcome and the option of a table up- or downstairs. The food was tasty and well cooked, the atmosphere amiable, and the hosts very friendly. We lingered long over the meal and were not rushed. The jolly host is very amusing and kept us well entertained. A most enjoyable experience.

We went before Christmas for lunch after seeing TripAdvisor reviews. This is what I imagine a French restaurant should be like. Tiny, great atmosphere with a friendly owner who loves to chat, great but simple food, cooked really well, local cheeses and a small but quaffable wine list and fair pricing. The pot au chocolat was a classic and to die for! Don't come here if you want pretentious Michelin star food (lady with the drains?), but if you hark back to the old auberge days, then you must try it.
