This almost a century brewery is known and appreciated far beyond our borders. His cuisine is drawn from the soil of our region, its products and its authenticity. Warmly welcomed in a setting of "authentic brasserie", you can enjoy typical regional dishes. It is likely that the wide range of choice from the menu invites you to extend your enjoyment. Because chicory is the restaurant where we forget the time, day and night. The atmosphere is friendly and festive. This is the place of choice for many artists visiting Lille to come eat and have a good time after the concerts. Chicory is also a south facing terrace in the heart of Lille. This is a brewery on 3 floors where the smells and atmospheres blend, where eyes meet. It is a mecca for nightlife Lille.

A pleasant surprise

Our first lunch in Lille so totally pick at random, this place turned out to be quite good! 2 of us had mussels which were freshly and well cooked (that's not always the case). Plump, hot and very good. The chips were hot too (again not always the case). The 3rd one of us had Bavette... read more

Really good food we had for dinner, seafood pasta and chicken in a beer stew. I don't understand those who complain about having to wait. If you have only 30 minutes, visit McDonalds around the corner ! Why not enjoy the environment and all the passers-by ? Again, food was great and great portions. We were full with just one... More

After disembarking from the City Tour from the Tourist Office across the street we enjoyed a wonderful seafood meal on the main square of town. Excellent service was provided and the oysters were perfect.

Don't get me wrong the food is not bad but you will have to wait. Servers are freaking nice but they just have too many table to handle. And the manager just works whenever he wants. Once again in France the service is desperately slow. Have to wait for your drinks.. have to wait for your order to be taken..... More

Whilst not haute cuisine, this is an excellent place to eat when there is a range of eating tastes. Omlette to frogs legs :) Reasonable prices and good service

We stayed in the centre of Lille for a night and after a longish day in the car wanted something quick and simple to eat washed down with a few good beers or glasses of wine. We chose La Chicoree because of its location and it was one of the few places to have lots of customers (mainly young French... More

Had dinner there yesterday, we arrived quite late that evening. Busy Sundayevening, so service took some time. Starters were OK, tarte d'oignons was big for a starter. Linguini with seafood was very good, lots of scallops and gamba's. But the Waterzooi had lots of fish but almost no taste. A real pity!

My favorite food eaten in Lille was that eaten here; I ate the Carbonate Flamande which I would recommend to anyone, it was so sumptuous and the portion was huge. The staff here are so helpful and the english translations on the menu helped greatly. A must try for anyone in Lille!

We had a lovely lunch in a lively and busy restaurant in Lille. Worth a visit as staff were excellent and food was lovely and hot! Good value for money, especially as we had tried others near by and ended up here for a second time and was just as good.

Never having been to Lille before, we were undecided as to where to have dinner. Our hotel receptionist gave us some ideas and also gave us a 10% discount card to a few restaurants. On our walkabout through the city centre we looked at menus ( as 1 of our party is vegetarian) which are all nicely placed outside the... More
