We stumbled across this restaurant one night whilst trying to find somewhere to eat with our two young hungry daughters. The staff were really friendly, food was great, good value and great fun. Seemed like everyone else was having a good night also. Thanks guys!

I quite regularly have lunch over there with friends, and you can feel they don't compromise with products quality. Everything is fresh, home-made and the value for money is one of the best in the area.
Service is quite efficient too, well-organized structure.
During sunny day, book an outside table in their lovely small terrace facing the sun.

I dined here during a trip to Lille, the food and service were excellent.
I am hesitant to describe it as basic, I think straightforward does it better justice. There is no pretence with what is on offer here just good quality food and drink.
The staff were very friendly and helpful in explaining the menu. The food was of excellent quality, the steak in particular was delicious as were the coffees and desserts.

The food and wine were excellent here and it was full of locals. They were very happy for my 10 month old to eat, fine with baby led weaning. They have a high chair but he said the strap was broken.
Tables clearly fine for a clip on high chair. It's been hard to find decent baby friendly restaurants here but this was a definite winner!

A group of friends travelled from England on Eurostar for a day trip to Lille. Lunch at La Criniere was the high point of the visit. We arrived late, because of our confusion about the time of the booking, but the host was very accommodating. He offered us very good local beer while we decided on our meal and we made our choices from the tempting food on offer. The food, from appetisers to dessert, was excellent, the wine very good, the service superb. After we finished he was able to recommend the perfect bar to find a good selection of micro-brewed beers.
We had such a good experience that we will definitely return and we would recommend this fine bistro to anyone.
