First of all this restaurant has a lovely french atmosphere being classically decorated without fuss. Service was very good and attentive, however the best part was the food. We were a party of 5 and as things would have it we each chose a different dish, thus we had pork, beef, fish, lamb and chicken. My friends are all well... More

With simple, minimal but classic decoration this restaurant, offering a sempathetic assortment of dishes (though kids menu is limited to just 2 choices), it can give you a good and quality sense of the area's tastes. The price per person is about 30Euros with a glass of wine or a beer.

Nothing special here. The food is correct but nothing exceptional. Smoked salmon was standard. Rabbit was so so. Service is OK. Had higher expectation from the previous reviews.

Bad start: We were eight people and it was very cold out, and we were having an outdoor drink nearby and we called for a reservation at 9:15 pm, and they said we could not come before 10 PM. When we got there at 9:45 PM, there were more than 20 empty tables. Apparently we were not allowed to come,... More

Menu is reasonably well balanced, with also interesting wines (not cheap though). Food was good, interesting (we had sea bass and slowly cooked pork, very good), quickly served and service professional. Sitting relatively confortable. In case of busy night, somewhat noisy and packed.

As reviewed previously - staff were completely uninterested, blasé and unfriendly. Why don't these waiters find themselves another job? My main course was almost inedible - I had bream and it was completely over-cooked. If in Lille give this restaurant a wide berth!

Five of us arrived at L'Orange Bleu without a reservation on a busy night but the friendly staff found us a good table and looked after us well. The food was really well cooked and imaginative, e.g. rabbit in a mustard and cider cream sauce, and good value for a venue in central Lille just around the corner from the... More

I had no plan for dinner and walked past here, then checked Tripadvisor and it sounded good. I was worried I wasn't dressed well enough (jeans and blazer) but it was casual despite other listings online. The appetizer (croquettes) were unremarkable, but the daurade entree was great. I felt it was a good value for the money, too.

This restaurant is located in the Vieux Lille in a very nice location about 2 blocks from Place du General de Gaulle. It has a very pleasant atmosphere with calm and comfortable decor. I woud put its noise level as quiet enough for a low key conversation. I think I got the wrong dish - but then my French is... More

I opted for a traditional beef stew and it was delicious. Nice flavour and attention to small details, such as the selection of fresh breads served along side.I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and the waiting staff were brilliant. A definite must do when in Lille. Very centrally located and surrounded by bars and restaurants in the area.... More
