There were a lot of 50+ people having lunch when we were there. The atmosphere is a bit cold but the food we ordered was very good. They are real specialists in (raw) fish. We really enjoyed the food. Its not cheap, but you will have good quality!

We had a great meal here last night. It is by far the best non-French meal we have had during our year in France. Being Scandinavian, they feature fish and reindeer (Nemo and Rudolf is how we described it to our grandchildren). We had sampler platters as we are leaving soon. The tastes were varied, delicious and well prepared. Our... More

The details of this restaurant make you feel you are in a different country, as far as I can compare with my Danish experiences. The food is good, although potions are not very large. The service could be better, as the waiter was not so helpful with our French and 'pronouncing Scandinavian names' issues. Maybe he had a bad day.

Different flavors than most places, Lakson is mostly fish prepared in the Scandinavian manner. Has about 20 tables, good service, nice place.

I had dinner with my husband at this great Scandinavian establishment. We choose one of the many exquisite dishes and was most impressed with the quality of the food - the salmon was so delicate it almost melted in your mouth and the different choices were just great - truly recommend it!

This is a Scandinavian themed restaurant located near Lille's (old) city center. As we arrived just before 2100, we were almost told to go away and come back. It appears that reservations might be a good idea. The maître d' / server spoke only French. No effort was made to communicate any other way. The Swedish meatballs were hard and... More

Lakson products are unique. Guided by the passion and authenticity is gradually as we turned toward the north. It is there that we explored and selected products of exceptional quality. Rare, valuable. Control dies, demanding traceability, our products are made in the tradition of Scandinavian recipes. A skill that is passed from generation to generation and that gives lakson products that taste so special real things. The new flavors of open spaces and endless days titillate your taste buds, your plate is tinged with light colors. Close your eyes, enjoy, you are in unknown territory.
