Set around the covered courtyard between two old town houses of Vieux Lille, a series of candlelit red brick and panelled rooms with wooden tables creates an inviting and warm décor at restaurant La Cave aux Fioles. The staff here are friendly and welcoming, and the cuisine – a fusion of excellent traditional cooking with a modern twist – lives up to the intimate atmosphere of the
restaurant. The menu is full of choice, from mouth-watering waterzooï de Homard – a rich lobster stew – to mushrooms stuffed with Roquefort. For dessert try the typical Délicatesse du Nord: glace au genièvre et à la chicoré – a tantalising ice-cream flavoured with local gin and chicory.
