Came upon this bar more than 10 years ago, and now always make sure to stop in for a coffee when passing through Lille. It is just as it was 50, 100 years ago - like other reviews say the original tiles, the simplicity, the good company and slow pace make this a place to just relax and enjoy. Haven't... More

We popped in here whilst in Lille for NY....we had hoped to eat as we saw the menu earlier..sadly they were not serving food. We stayed for a beer and it was wonderful beer smooth and creamy. Very quirky inside with amazing original ceramic tiles around the place. Would return if in Lille...hopefully to eat!

Just off main square so better value than more touristy places. Good food, price and service. Only small inside but sitting outside was a good option for more space.

We waited around for 10 minutes while the waiter looked at us and decided whether to take our drink order which we were confused by. Greeted in the not so friendliest manner then returned with our drinks. After we had finished our drinks we tried to get the attention of the waiter who was no where to be seen to... More

Stayed at the Mercure across the road and visited this little bar for lunch. Had a lovely friendly atmosphere and the food was well served. Only a few minutes from the Grand Place. Would definitely visit again.

Great range of Grimbergen brews in this small bar. It opens on two streets and has a really nice feel

Good little brasserie with good selection of "homely" "plats du jour" (four). Pleasant to sit outside on the quiet, tree-lined avenue Carnot. Great prices for being so close to La Grande Place average 9e per main dish making eating for two a 20e proposition!

Been to Lille on a few occasions and often walked past this place often. Managed a visit this time. Place fills up quickly for lunch. Food is not a gastronomic affair, but neither are the prices. Very local dishes 4 different daily specials of the day bone marrow and steak tartare were a couple of choices when we visited.. We... More

Having found this restaurant, almost by accident, we were amazed by everything about it. It was mainly occupied by locals having lunch, but our welcome was very sincere. The menu was simple, but the food outstanding and prices very reasonable. I cannot recommend this establishment too highly. It is situated very close to the centre of Lille in a very... More
