Description: 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.

Good standard French brasserie with all the usual favorites on the menu. Lots of outside seating facing the Place Rihour, and Lille's memorial to those who died in war, just off the city's magnificent Grand Place (Place Charles de Gaulle). Late on a Friday evening they managed a good Paris ham, salad and chips, washed down some Ch'ti local lager... More

The French onion soup on the menu drew me in and I was looking forward to it . I will say that I'm not sure how they could still be serving this recipe after 100 years. I could have made better from a package of Lipton onion soup. The Flemish stew tasted like it came from a can. The meat... More

Great food and service. Ideally placed for tourist areas in a little cluster of restaurants. It was very busy and considering that didn't wait too long to be served. Our waiter was amazing, literally running between tables taking several orders at a time, not writing them down and getting them all right! Food didn't take long at all. I had... More

We didn't realise this was a 24 hour place til after we left and that may have affected our choice of place, but it was fine- pretty good in fact. We had a nice bottle of Riesling very reasinably priced, then I had a huge piece of cheese tart to start, which was really good, and my husband had, well,... More

who says Flanders says : mussels, French fries and beer. Of course this restaurant offers other things but those are my favorite for a true Flemish experience. The staff is very friendly ( bravo Mélodie who took such good care of me) and so typically French. A very enjoyable experience.

We dined here last night and had lovely food that was not too expensive. The portions are generous and the highlight was a creme brullee that was actually on fire! A nice touch to end the meal. Very happy here.
