This place starts off well and gives you the impression that you have found an excellent local restaurant tucked away from the crowds. Unfortunately, the food and the service do not do the space and the atmosphere justice. The staff were disorganised and inattentive, despite...More

Very busy quirky resturant and you will definately need to book. We had a superb meal, friendly staff, mainly full of locals not many tourists. A wide selection of good wines and beers. Traditional Flemish food " Estaminet"

Great place for a romantic dinner. I had the Carbonnade flamande (small chunks of beef stewed in beer) with fites. It was delicious! Would love to return.

I stumbled by accident upon this intimate estaminet in Lille. It's down a small "ruelle" which looked interesting and voila, there was Le Barbue d'Anvers which I had read about in Michelin. A bicycle was casually leaning against a brick wall under the menu which...More

Booked for dinner on Saturday evening. Booking is recommended so you can sit in the main area. Previously just turning up for lunch we were put in the mezzanine area which is not so good. Service was excellent, waiters explain any dish in English if...More
