Nouveau Siecle is an area where the Millennials gather for drinks in the evening. Most of the spots on the street are watering holes, but this café is quieter, and offers nice dinners with local cuisine.

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.

We went there because there was 30% off with the fork. The service was perfect and the dishes very good, I recommend the maroilette.

I took my partner for her birthday and we got a very friend greeting, staff spoke quite good English. The food was absolutely delicious traditional food... More

My wife, son and I went to this restaurant on a Sunday (many other restaurants are shut on a Sunday) and had a very pleasant informal meal. The young man who served us speaks English and was very friendly and helpful, and recommended a superb unfiltered beer in a 750 ml bottle, called Cuvee des Jonquilles. A lot of the... More

Our second best meal in Lille. The first was expensive with excellent quality, ingredients and cooking; this was a quarter of the price, slightly away from the tourist areas, excellent cooking, simple but top notch ingredients-which haven't always been our experience here. We will definitely head here again when we next come to Lille. A very pleasant and unexpected finish... More

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 did! We spent a very nice lunch time and I will certainly go back there... More

Had dinner at this restaurant on a Monday evening after visiting the Xmas market with my wife and two other couples. I had escargot in a local cheese sauce for starter, pork for the main, and tirimasu for desert. All excellent. The others had a variety of dishes and were all very satisfied. The waiter was helpful, explaining the dishes... More
