Our waiter was very helpful and keen to explain his dishes. The garlic sauce that comes with the Shish Taouk leaves a punch!

Two of us, made in-house mezze with six cold and four hot small dishes, a restaurant full of local friends and families enjoying the group experience of eating dinner. The family owners in the kitchen and a lovely person helping us make our choices made it seem we were part of the 'hood ourselves. The food was very good, and... More

Service is brilliant. Good food and great taste. The location is slightly out of the centre. But the walk is just 5 min and you will have a great experience

It was one of my friends who recommended the place to us and I never regretted trying it out, it's the second time I ate here and I will certainly be coming back! Food is only excellent, it's delicious! Especially the mezze,... More

It's a nice family restaurant with a very good service. Waiter had a chat with us and recommended us best stuff from menu. As we wanted to taste everything, we decided to take mezze - lots of small plates. Everything was so delicious.

When visiting Lille I can definitely recommend you to find your way tot the Layalina restaurant. We went back for the second time to this family-run restaurant which combines great food with an excellent service. We choose the menu number 4 which will guarantee an evening of exciting tastes including drinks and several cold and hot dishes and a dessert..
