Lille is full of restaurants, which makes it hard to decide where to eat. The Melting Pot is definetely a restaurant to visit. They don't serve the usual flemish cuisine as "potjesvlees", etc. I had a beautiful fish filet and my girlfriend gambas with risotto. Just delicious! Friendly staff also.

Lovely setting, very clean. Menu was varied with a nice choice of wines. The children had chicken and chips with ice cream for 10€ Food was impeccable, the staff were very attentive, parking can be an issue but worth a visit

For the money, this place is excellent. Several cuisines on the menu. We began splitting a foie gras and smoked duck "burger" -- a mini slider that was unusual and very good. I had chicken with lemongrass flavoring and noodles; my wife had the skate. There is Italian, French, and others on the menu. Wine list reasonable in scope and... More

As the name suggests, this is a melting pot of cooking ideas. French with a light Asian influence. The food & presentation is excellent and really tasty. If you don't book a table you are unlikely to get in, particularly at weekends. Loads of people were turned away while we were there because they were fully booked. They only seem... More

Had a lovely meal here with my wife having arrived late into Lille and didn't get chance to look around. This turned out to be a great choice, the set menu €29 for 3 courses was great value for money. I had monk fish for starters, tuna steak satay for main and cheesecake to finish. All were very tasty and... More

The food is really good and the restaurant is nice. The only point to say is that the service could be a little more fast, but it’s reasonable. I recommend if you want to pass a good evening eating well.

We chanced on this restaurant while in Lille and found it a delight. Our hostess was a charming lady with a beaming smile who quietly made us most welcome. We chose to sit inside at a well presented table with tablecloth and linen napkins. The menu had some interesting items as well as the conventional range. Wine by the glass... More

We went to this restaurant as it was across the road from our hotel and its was absolutely delicious. Such a lovely restaurant. The owners were extremely welcoming (and speak english) and the menu was small but everything that we ate was delicious. I would highly recommend and would absolutely come again next time I am in Lille.

Small local restaurant close to Opera square in the middle of Lille. Only a small menu of international dishes but with a french flavour, you can have a 3 course menu for 29Euro. Our entrees and meals were all very nice. Most of the customers seemed to be locals which is a good sign. Staff speak English end they have... More
