An art deco setting for award-wining regional cuisine

  • Traditional menu

  • Home cooking and seasonal produce

  • Private mezzanine area and a cosy bar

  • Superb art deco architecture

Le Vieil Abreuvoir is set in a spectacular 19th-century townhouse with striking art deco architecture. But lying behind the decorative motifs and columns of this central Roubaix restaurant is genuine northern hospitality, and a staff attentive to both local customers and passing visitors who come to sample the inventive menu.

Our celebrated chef calls on a rich, regional gastronomy, using local produce to conjure up a seasonal menu that's both innovative and true to its roots. From the signature burger to regional cheeses and prawn croquettes, our homemade dishes draw on solid culinary traditions to create a delicious experience for diners. With market menus offered at lunchtime and on weekday evenings, this authentic brasserie is a sure bet for locals in search of something new.

True to its name, Le Vieil Abreuvoir offers drinks to match the high standard of its cuisine, such as wines from Madrague, an area of Côtes de Provence renowned for organic wines. Our bar-restaurant can host business lunches, family meals, romantic diners and parties for friends, choose between the main dining room, the private mezzanine or the intimate bar for the ambience that suits you best.

The story of our name

Until the 19th century, Roubaix was a small village in Lille countryside, with a water trough for horses in Rue Vieil Abreuvoir, at that time just a simple rural lane. Taking this name is our way of celebrating an era that saw the birth of our art deco bar-restaurant and laid down the roots of our constantly evolving cuisine.

    (Translated by Google) Very good restaurant! The service is at the level of a 4 star. The server was available and smiling. We had a great evening!
    The only downside of the restaurant is the overall atmosphere which is quite gloomy.

    Très bon restaurant ! Le service est au niveau d'un 4 étoiles. Le serveur était disponible et souriant. On a passé une excellente soirée !
    Seul bémol du restaurant, l'ambiance globale qui est assez morose.

    (Translated by Google) A more than disappointing experience!
    The food was not up to par with the establishment, although the servers were very friendly.
    I do not recommend it for groups.

    Expérience plus que décevante !
    La nourriture n'était pas à la hauteur de l'établissement, bien que les serveurs soient forts sympathiques.
    Je déconseille pour les groupes.
