The celeriac is cooked in one tray with mushrooms, green beans and onions.
A relaxing way to spend the hot afternoon was at Patisserie Conte. This was a colourful tea room with exquisite cakes. A tranquil and relaxing atmosphere was provided with no background music. Deep red walls and red table cloths contrasted the bright comfortable seating.
Although Monsieur Georges is situated in Place St Georges, it is secluded from the main square with plants and vegetation. The outdoor seating by the entrance initially looks fairly small but then there is additional seating over the grass way.
At certain times of the year, the South West restaurant is closed and the same menu is served in the sister eatery of the South West Lounge.
Cafe Rouge had a European feel to it. There was the classic red and dark wooden theme with big etched mirrors on the wall. Huge windows could be opened on a hot day and hence there would be plenty of fresh air coming into the restaurant.
This creperie was found at the top end of the old town. Just a side line, the boulangerie opposite called Au Lion d’Or, does amazing croissants. A short walk away is also Aux Merveilleux de Fred. Here you can have big or small delights of melt in the mouth meringues and cream. An absolute treat.
Cote Brasserie is situated on Islington Green. On entering, the dining area looks quite big and the furniture is dark wooden. There are booths with cushioned seating. There is a private dining area at the back of the restaurant which is separated by a curtain.
Arriving early at Lille Opera Brasserie, the staff did not turn me away. Instead a seat was given at the bar until the table was ready.
The annual Afternoon Tea this year was at Le Restaurant de Paul. It was to be a French take on the traditional Afternoon Tea.
