Had Sunday lunch there - cheese pie to start and Cod Waterzooi. Both absolutely lovely. Service was attentive and friendly and great ambience in an old café style building.

In Lille for a couple of days we wanted to try a local dish so we went to L'gaïette with our local friends. The atmosphere is welcoming and so is the staff! We were dared to try AND FINISH a "welsch" which few of us...More

Dans un cadre des annees 1930, vous decouvrirez une carte a l'accent fortement prononce. Carbonnade flamande ou encore Welsh, accompagne de frites fraiches et d'une large selection de bieres artisanales et regionales, sont parmi les plats a deguster dans une ambiance resolument ch'ti. Car L'Gaiette est un restaurant de specialites regionales du Nord, un estaminet ou l'on passe un bon moment entre amis, famille ou collegues. Ouvert 7j/7, midi et soir, et pouvant accueillir 90 couverts (les groupes etant les bienvenus), vous n'hesiterez pas a passer la porte.
