La Petite Table

The cosy old town restaurant offers a fusion menu of Flemish and international dishes, one of the most popular orders being the humble "Welsh" - essentially, toast smothered in cheese, with a few filling extras. Frequented by both locals and guests looking to experience northern French dining.


Those looking to savour Lillois specialities should cast their glance at carbonade flamande, waterzooi, and potjevleesch. The latter one might be the most exotic: four different types of meat held together with gelatin, served cold. Carbonade flamande is, perhaps, the safest bet, as little can go wrong with beef stewed to utmost tenderness in beer. As for waterzooi, it is a Flemish creamy stew of fish or chicken with egg yolk and various vegetables.
