We only have praise for this wonderful French restaurant. The food was of a very high standard and the service was attentive but not rushed. There is no English menu but the waiters will happily translate. In addition there are vegetarian options, my wife who...More

We tried this restaurant when we were unable to get into the Estaminet t'Rijsel one evening. The menu looked appealing, although, on our excursions up and down the street, we were worried why Au Vieux Louis seemed to fill-up so slowly in comparison with the...More

'Au vieux louis' is probably on the busiest restaurant street in Lille: Rue de Gand. You can actually easily miss it in between the mass of bars and restaurants. The food is traditional from the southwest of France and homemade: frois gras, cassollet, magret de...More
