Visited the restaurant on a business trip. We had a large table reserved for 14, the staff were very friendly and able to translate the whole Mene with ease and confidence. The food was stunning, it was the first time in the trip I'd heard them all go quiet! Excellent quality, generous portions, all very rich... But good rich! I... More

The restaurant is located in an ally of the main road, away from all the tourists. The service was good and the food was delightful. They do have high chairs! The decor is pretty cool. I highly recommend this place if you want to have a romantic dinner. My wife ordered the carbonare flamande, it was great! I had the... More

nestled in an old vaulted basement, this is a great location and the food was decent. Service was a bit lagging, however was adequate. The beer hall stomping next door was a bit annoying.

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 looked very appealing. And lo and behold, a last minute reservation with Thibault, cuisinier, was... 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 requested. Food excellent too - a mix traditional and more modern dishes - they can... More

This is a good place for anyone who wants to taste good Northern France cuisine. You can taste it all at a good price ! From the famous dish "Carbonade Flamande" to the very smelly, strong and tasty cheese "Maroilles"... Welcome to Lille my home town :)

We were a party of 15. We had booked online and confirmed by telephone and yet when we arrived the table was only for 13. We sat down as the waiting staff sorted the tables out. We waited for over an hour - yes over an hour - just to get water for the table, never mind order wine. Finally... More

Ate dinner here last night with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My husband and I often switch meals halfway through in order to sample two dishes (French people, with a few exceptions are not as eager to taste others' food). I chose the onglet of veal which arrived in an aura of garlic which was devine and surely kept... More

Le Barbue d'Anvers is a nice estaminet. It serves a very nice food including a lot of dishes typical from the North of France and Belgium. The food is nice and it comes in large enough portions. The place is very nice: a very old building located at the end of a small street. We were seated in the basement... More
