We had noted this restaurant on our way into the centre of Lille in the morning. Nothing like surveying menus in preparation for an evening meal. We came back despite pressure from so many alternative restaurants and did not regret our decision. A cosy place with attractive decor and very attentive staff. Plat du jour & a la carte were...

This was the 1st bar we saw after the train station so stopped for a quick drink, not expecting a bill for nearly €19 for 2xbeers! (Nice as they were) They've got a great location & nice outside seating area but are taking advantage, I'd advise to keep on walking!

A much larger place than one might believe when you arrive with the restaurant extended far to the rear. Seats are pretty comfy and the atmosphere relaxed. We had some small snacks and drinks and all in all it was a very pleasant experience.

We went for lunch and had spaghetti and Welsh. Spaghetti was way overcooked and nearly mushy. Pretty horrible. I tried the Welsh for the first time. Just a huge blob of molten cheese with oil dripping from it. Found some bits of bread and ham inside. The worst meal we had in Lille.

We have been visiting Lille for 8 years and like to try new restaurants with each visit. That being said, we always seem to gravitate back to Taverne Flamande for their consistently good food, lively atmosphere, and friendly staff who we always share a laugh with in our best Franglish! Food and drinks are served all day every day which... More

This pub is just over the road from Lille Flandres station and the metro/tram exit for Faidherbe - perfect on a very wet,cold February Sunday afternoon. We were drawn in by the sign for 'Onion soup', which was tasty and comforting. We followed this with (him) a Caesar salad and (me) a Carbonnade Flamande - lovely tender meat, served with... More

Lots of staff running around but they were a surly bunch, this seemed to stem from the owner/manager who wore his misery on his unsmiling face. This establishment seemed to attract rowdy locals shouting and hollering - Id give it a miss if I was you, there are too many excellent bars and restaurants to try.

Was open to something new and the friendly waiter recommended Carbonnade flamande. I also ordered Hoegaarten and was urged to try rose flavour - really good experience.
