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.

Had breakfast here every day, they do an equivalent to a full English with veal sausages. Very nice and the fresh croissants run out quickly so get there early.

Delicious food, but service was rushed. They heard my poor French accent and suggested we sit upstairs. Don't, the atmosphere is much more buzzy downstairs, where we insisted on sitting, upstairs was like a tourist bus had arrived. Good steak, but don't expect to linger longer than an hour.

Venture inside to appreciate the whole package on offer - buzzing with atmosphere in traditional style and obviously very popular. The menu is attractive with a wide range of options at many different price points. The service is brisk and attentive, whilst the meals are well presented and very good value.

Pit stop a stone's throw away from the main square in Lille. Helpful staff but a menu that was essentially tourist heaven. Can't say the menu blew us away or inspired us to stay longer for a full lunch as opposed to a light snack. The blonde beer compensated for that! Ok-ish. Don't expect to be blown away

Been there twice and will go again. Great basic dishes with a twist. Excellent foie gras for 9,30! The other time I had a burger and the beef was cooked perfectly. Also a good place to try northern French cuisine!

After a long day we were looking to eat reasonably early in the evening and this was one of the few places serving full meals. The menu was full of local specialities and the beef casserole Flamande was superb. Excellent value for a three-course meal.

We did not notice that the restaurants in Lille did not serve lunch between 3pm and 6pm. However, this restaurant near the Place du General de Gaulle serves food on these hours. So we gave it a go, otherwise we had to eat at McDonald's. In my humble opinions, the duck foie gras as starter and scallops as main are... More

We absolutely loved our visit, it really helped that our little boy slept in his pram throughout! I had mussels and my hubby had scallops and it was gorgeous. So busy yet service was efficient and price good!

If you arrive late in Lille you can always rely on a hearty local speciality very late and in to the early hours. Can get very busy and so service can get under pressure but buzzy atmosphere.
