A group of four of us visited for dinner off the back of the reviews on this site. Whilst the restaurant was quiet, other diners appeared to be locals which always augers well. The waiter who looked after us spoke English better than we spoke French and was able to explain the menu to us so that we could make... More

No modern take off on traditional dishes, no discounts on the amounts of fat, butter and cream used in any dish and a design concept from the early 70's - BUT a landlord / chef proud of his work, a desire to please and one hell of an heritage to rely on (French cuisine that is...). The result is surprisingly... More

I ate lunch here with a group of 5 others a few weeks ago, it was not our first choice - the restaurant originally chosen had been commandeered by the Swiss football team! But we were so delighted we chose Le Rivoli - the food is heavenly, probably the most authentic French dining experience of our 4 days in this... More

This restaurant is a very classic french styled bistrot right across from the city hall in roubaix. My guest had escargots and the andouillette while I had the parma ham appetizers followed by a duck confit cassoulet. The cassoulet was astonishing! The wine of the day was a great value at 23 euros for the bottle. The owner / chef... More

Don't be put off by tacky store front this a very good old school restaurant with limited offerings that are all home made. Went for lunch and all had something different scallops, their specialty burger, fish, tarte aux maroilles: all excellent. Small wine list.

I have been there for a business trip and was looking for a place for dinner close to hotel. I hate to eat at hotel restaurants while tripping and prefer to go to local places. This small traditional restaurant serves fresh meal and taste is excellent. Decoration is not fancy but frankly, very nice for a small place. Only issue... More

We visited on a quiet damp wet night in Roubaix and the restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived. I wasn't expecting too much but as it turned out, we had a wonderful meal (fantastic Carbonnade), excellent wines and incredibly friendly service from both the waiter and the chef, who came out to speak with us, even though the restaurant...

Went there by chance. We were welcomed at the door by the chef/owner. very warm welcome. Food was devine. Very small menu but everything is home made. Even the mayonaise. Excellent and I will be back for sure. Its been a few days and I still cant stop myself from taking about this place to my colleagues and friends.

We stumbled on this little restaurant on our way back from Lens, on a Sunday. It was just before closing time, but we were allowed in on the promisse we'd leave in about an hour. A succulent steak, cod; riz de veaux and a nice bottle of red later we walked out rather pleased and vowing to return some day... More
