Wanting to grab a bite around 2.30 on a Sunday in Tournai we were attracted by a blackboard outside the Crêperie bretonne (rue de l’Yser, 44) promoting sweet and savory pancakes (“crêpes sucrées et salées”). Once the four of us were shown to a table by a rather unfriendly man, we read on the menu that savoury crêpes were only... More

I normally avoid restaurants so perfectly situated on the main square because too often the menu is indifferent and overpriced. Ended up here after discovering virtually every restaurant was fully booked on Friday night. Happily we discovered a broad menu including a wide variety of steaks, honest quality, huge portions, and swift and friendly service. Only drinks were somewhat pricey,... More

We enjoyed lunch at this restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was very tasty and filling, and the accompanying side salad that came with those dishes was very nice and a lovely citrus style dressing on it. The restaurant was very busy but the service was good and if we went back to Tournai, we would definitely pop back... More

Tournai was a lunch stop on the way through, and we chose L'Orchidee from a host of similar looking brasseries and cafes close to the belfry tower. The menu is suitably varied, with plenty of snacks and salads, but on a cold November day, four of us opted for a warming main course, and we left four clean plates at... More

Simple restaurant on the beautiful main square in Tournai (btw, shame it is used as a parking lot!). I was there with two friends, we took three mains, and I tried them all. Spicy shrimps (erroneously listed as "Scampi diaboliques") and carbonnade were good, but the best was a tender and juicy beef fillet cooked "saignant" comme il faut. We... More

This is a pleasant eatery on the Grande Place in Tournai with a sunny terrace. The salads are superb and have remained consistently good over many years. There are other good options on their varied menu too. It's a comfortable place with reasonable prices but can get very busy at lunch time. It is a far better option than many... More

We called in on spec and each fancied a salad for New Year. Boy, what salads - they came with everything and more, huge and delicious with star fruit, bean sprouts, kumquat, berries and the more traditional Caesar ingredients. They were without doubt the best salads we have ever had.
