Was on the restaurant for business purposes for dinner. Very nice/modern location with friendly French waiters, what not always is the case. Food quality and quantity was according price range. Definitely a place to consider when you are in Troyes

This was recommended by the hotel we were staying at on our way down to ski in Switzerland. Nice décor and friendly service. Plenty of choice on menu for adults and children - steak tartar very good. A little pricey for the entrecote but decent portions

My wife and I were returning to the UK, travelling from Cannes to Zeebrugge and decided to stay overnight in Troyes. We wanted to spend an hour or so looking around the town before finding a restaurant for dinner, we had not booked anything. We found L'Illustre as we were walking around the 'old town' - the menu looked good... More

We had a lovely meal. Starting with the burrata appetizer followed by the sole meunière. Both were delicious. Service was excellent and nice choice of wine. Easy to find with a nice out door area and very attractive interior.

Tourist street, busy at night and in the day during season. Snug pavement seating. Staff were friendly but rushed. Food was ok.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and we weren't disappointed. The food and service was good, however we noticed later that we could have had an English menu but weren't offered one which was a shame as we obviously wee English. We had a fixed menu which was excellent value and plenty of food for hungry travellers. The situation... More

This is a good brasserie - not high-end dining, but good food, well-prepared and served by friendly and welcoming staff. It's located on the main street leading down to the 'square' in the heart of the old town - a bustling location with many choices - this is one worth taking. The food is straightforward - an excellent foie gras,... More

This was recommended by our hotel landlady as not too touristy. And she was right! It was very friendly and the food delicious - it is brasserie not haute cuisine but none the worse for that. I had steak and my friends enjoyed the moules. Delicious and generous cheese.

We had dinner here consisting of odd items for dinner, like crepes flambees. However, we eat very lightly so things like crepes and French dinner salads buit us just fine. L'Illustre is pretty and not expensive. It offers quite a selection of interesting dishes and cheap cocktails (for instance, 7 euros for a very large mojito). I don't think anyone... More
