“the reviews are not lying”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

it tells that the only negative review for this resaurant is from someone who (at their own admission) didnt eat there. It was outstanding. as someone who owns and runs a cafe bar myself, it is the service you can only get if the owners run and cook themselves. The passion is evident. not one single negative pont to be made.

“Excellent in every respect”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

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.

“Wonderful tonight!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Fine dining at a fraction of the price”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

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

“Fun lunch in the Old Town”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

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.
