This is a good place for anyone who wants to taste good Northern France cuisine. You can taste it all at a good price ! From the famous dish "Carbonade Flamande" to the very smelly, strong and tasty cheese "Maroilles"... Welcome to Lille my home town :)

We were a party of 15. We had booked online and confirmed by telephone and yet when we arrived the table was only for 13. We sat down as the waiting staff sorted the tables out. We waited for over an hour - yes over an hour - just to get water for the table, never mind order wine. Finally... More

Ate dinner here last night with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

I chose the onglet of veal which arrived in an aura of garlic which was devine and surely kept... More

Le Barbue d'Anvers is a nice estaminet. It serves a very nice food including a lot of dishes typical from the North of France and Belgium. The food is nice and it comes in large enough portions. The place is very nice: a very old building located at the end of a small street. We were seated in the basement... More

There are only two good points about our meal here - nice atmosphere and friendly helpful service. But the food was less than mediocre. Pate starter was fatty and hard work. Steak was very poor and just came with chips. Veggie Lasagne looked microwave nuked. House wine Chablis was nice but €7 a glass. So in all our first night... More

Really good french food. The deep fried Maroilles cheese was great. The service was good, despite us being a very large group and I really enjoyed my visit.

Good ambience and well cooked food all effortlessly and quickly served by only two waiters covering the upstairs room of at least 60 diners. Amazing, yet we never felt pushed to hurry up, they were very professional and friendly.

Found this place by chance and were immediately impressed by the decor. We went for lunch and soon after we arrived they were almost full in the upstairs section that was open. The menu is traditional for the area, service reasonable and lunch came out in good time and was very tasty. Very reasonable pricing.
