We dined here on our first night in Lille and were so pleased we chose this place. The Art Deco setting of the downstairs salon is just like some of those wonderful old Parisian brasseries - all red plush seating and engraved mirrors. The food was excellent. They specialize in seafood, particularly oysters - there's a fabulous display at the... More

Dropped into this venue for a business dinner with a group of 7. As a mainly American group we arrived when the place was relatively empty however it did fill up as the night extended. Food is typical for the region and the service was also typical for the region, not overly friendly but certainly functional. Expect to pay between... More

A typical French brasserie. Have eaten here a few times now and never been disappointed. It is always full so a reservation is recommended.

Wonderful traditional French style brasserie, complete with typical surly waiter!! However, food is good value and the restaurant interior is superb. Don't book and ensure you get a table on the ground floor and don't forget to look at the fish bar just outside the front door.

I have eaten her twice and enjoyed both times. Last time we had the cold seafood platter, which is a must have. I especially liked the seafood local to only Northern France.

Tucked in the corner of one of the main squares, you could miss this wonderful art nouveau restaurant. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. A good fixed price menu including oysters, or just enjoy the seafood platters.

We came to Lille for a one night city break to see the Xmas market and on a whim choose to eat our dinner here from some helpful trip advisor research. Considering it was a Monday night the restaurant was extremely busy. We turned up at 8.30pm and it was almost full. We saw them turn parties away! There was... More

Great last night of our weekend Christmas break. Food and service were excellent as was the wine and we thought it was good value so we will definitely visit again if or when we return. Seafood platers are definitely worth a try and the deserts are excellent.

A couples meal in the perfect art-nouveau restaurant. Very close to the Lille Christmas market, this is an experience. Nice fish and game menu, plenty of fine wines and champagnes. Busy and boisterous but brilliant fun. Possibly pricey but I thought for the meal we had it was worth it.

Thank Donald O

If a "goldfish" adorns the pediment and the map of the Peace is that here it is the king of your dishes, without forgetting the magnificent seafood platters.
The menu is "reworked" all weeks depending on the product and seasons for you to constantly discover preparations enchant.

From the terrace, the stall shellfish season inspires you the taste buds.

Previous entry, the eye feasts in a frame Art Deco inspired by the great Parisian brasseries: etched mirrors, ceramics and woodwork Desvres elm carefully worked in the spirit of the Roaring Twenties.

On the first floor is surrounded by a gallery of portraits, sitting comfortably in large leather armchairs, you can organize a seminar, a working lunch or an intimate evening with friends.
