Eat here yesterday, menu is beef (steak) chicken or salmon, so was expecting a magnificent Steak. Sadly no, it was just poor cut of meat served in a Herby sauce sliced on a skillet. I went large because "it must be great" oh well we learn by our mistakes. So I will avoid in future

We arrived at the restaurant just as they opened and only had 1 hour to spare before we needed to leave to catch a train. The food was very good with our steaks cooked to our requirements and there was a good wine list. The food was delivered quickly and we left in time to catch the train. I left... More

A real delight. Friendly staff, starter was lovely, the steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce accompanying the steak was simply divine. A real pleasure and would recommend to anybody visiting Lille.

Our family had a low-key but delicious dinner here. The special (beef, chicken, or fish) is the perfect amount of food, and we will be returning for the excellent service, food, and secret green sauce. We arrived early in the dinner service because we had our children with us, but the wait staff were very friendly and didn't try to... More

Upon arriving in Lille, my friends and I decided to dine at La tete de Boeuf. We tried several french plates for the very first time here, including bone marrow, fois gras, and beef cheeks, which were all very delicious. The restaurant was clean and the ambiance was perfect. Given the opportunity, I would definitely dine here again.

Nice and comfortable small restaurant oriented to french kitchen and steaks. Pleasant staff, but not all speak english. It's possible to recommend steak with special sauce (their secret recept) and delicious Café gourmand - choice of little desserts with coffee. Reasonable prices, especially in offer "main course + starter".

Booked through the internet, they were expecting me and provided me a nice and warm welcome after a 2 hours trip in the cold. The purpose of the dinner was to catch up with my son who studies in Lille. This place was perfect for that. it was relatively quiet enough to be able to discuss (despite the place being... More

Nice restaurant although expected more after the ratings and reviews.... Food was ok, starters disappointing and we both had steak cooked nice but would of been nice to have some vegetables or salad... One waiter probably over stretched with 8 tables of customers.... Not the attentive service I would of expected !!
