Description: Have you ever come across Bistronomie cuisine, the perfect balance between the informal bistrot dishes found in French brasseries and the more sophisticated gastronomy cuisine? If not, it might be time to head to La Royale and try for yourself Chefl and Jean-Sébastien's culinary creations. Only fresh products from local markets make it to the menu. Dishes are inventive, simple and creative. The wine list is equally enticing: la Royale favours smaller high-quality producers to big names... Come to La Royale to enjoy high quality cuisine in an intimate atmosphere full of delightful quaint memories. You'll find yourself transported in an old Paris bistrot and will no doubt feel at home...

“Original Bistro food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We had a great time. We were two couples and ordered quite a selection from the limited menu (ardoise: the food of the day is presented in chalk on a limestone). Intimate little restaurant. Service was great. Prices are most reasonable.

“Small menu, great food”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We visited for a quiet lunch following our arrival in Lille. The service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was great. We enjoyed the experience so much we returned on our last day, again for lunch. The food and service on this occasion was as good, if not better. In fact we regretted not going for dinner! Would highly recommend.

“great little place in a great part of town”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We made reservations for 3p on a Saturday and as it was warm outside we took 1 of the 3 tables outside.
The menu is limited but that's how I prefer to have it. The food was good as you would expect and the wines terrific (read: great value for money) Off course being in France you shouldn't settle for less.

“Great meal, good service and reasonably priced”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our meal. A tiny, bistro serving delicious, fairly refined, home-cooked, adult food. A refreshingly small but varied menu on offer - the Chocolate Fondant was to die for! Wine list offered wines to suit all palates. Not at all touristy - we shy away from the plastic tablecloths and plat du jour offerings liberally scattered around the squares and main strips. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Ate here with husband and 4 other Friends, all ordering different dishes and all satisfied with what we received. Very nice ambience and wine - if returning to Lille then would go again
