Restaurant and bar in Lille

Let’s tickle your taste buds in our restaurant by the water.

Restaurant on the terrace in Lille

Just a stone’s throw from Euratechnologie and the city centre of Lille, Le Barboteur welcomes you in the heart of the Bois Blancs district. Our chef prepares a modern French cuisine, mixed with Asian accents and Oriental flavours.

At the first rays of sunshine, our terrace is available for you to enjoy lunch or dinner by the water.

We are open for lunch from Monday to Saturday, and in the evening from Wednesday to Saturday. And on Sunday, it’s time to have brunch!

Bar & after work

After a hard at work, Le Barboteur becomes a bar and a place for your after work drinks until dinner time. From Monday to Friday, come and relax with a drink and discover our menu of small plates and tapas to share.


Sunday lunch is the perfect moment to have a good time with family and friends. On the menu for our brunch, a selection of plates to share inspired by the current menu.

Our menu

Our menu changes every two weeks, to vary the tastes and satisfy your taste buds

Every day, we offer you three starters, three dishes and three desserts.

You’ll always find several options on our menu: meat, fish or vegetarian. We want everyone to find what they want, according to their desires and diet!

Home-made and local products

At Le Barboteur in Lille, everything is home-made and based on fresh products.

Our daily challenge is to offer quality cuisine while limiting our ecological footprint. We choose to work with local and seasonal products, from local farms and craftsmen in the Hauts-de-France region. We favour organic fruit and vegetables or those grown according to the principles of sustainable agriculture.

To avoid food waste, we use the maximum of the products we cook.

Our commitments

High quality

Because we love good food and we want to share it with you.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables

Because we’re not the type to make you eat strawberries in winter.

Local products

Because we’re determined to promote the producers and craftsmen of the Hauts-de-France.

Good atmosphere and a very interesting à la carte menu. The restaurant was a little understaffed on the day we were there but it could be a really good place to have drinks. We loved it because it’s not the usual places in Lille.

A super nice place at the water's edge but not too much! Perfect for a sidewalk cafe - the inside also looked nice, bright and nicely decorated. The staff was also very pleasant. I liked it a lot and I will come back 🙂
