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.

This restaurant was recommended by a native of Lille for a meet-up with my Anglo-French family. The menu is relatively limited but specialises in local cuisine and all dishes were extremely good. The service was attentive but unobtrusive and I would certainly go there again. Highly recommended.

This place was where my new French niece-in -law wanted to have her rehearsal dinner for the wedding we'd come for...but was unable to secure the spot unbeknownst to us. To our surprise we happened upon it through our Carlton Hotel referral. And to have accidentally been given the name not knowing the failed rehearsal plan for this special place... More

The building is ancient and very charming. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious, including specialities of the area. Look forward to returning on our next visit

Varied menu, mainly meat and fish. Delicious starter, baked egg and shrimp in a cheese sauce, followed by fish croquettes and a cone of fries. My husband had deep fried local cheese, followed by a dish very similar to boeuf bourginone. Washed down with a decent carafe of house red, our only complaint was the very long wait, about an...

Loved the location and the architecture and decoration of the restaurant. On arrival @ 20:15 we were shown directly to the cellar dining area where we were initially the only diners. When we queried this the waiter was somewhat dismissive when assuring us it would become busier, in fairness more people arrived a little later so the atmosphere improved. Certainly... More

We were 15 that ordered table on a week day, we orderd beef at 2030 got it at 2230, this terrible service. I was so hungry when the food came that I could have had anything. The food was ok, tender but not a wow factor here.
