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 Good Place To Watch The World Go By

My husband and I ate here twice on our recent trip to Lille. It is in a very busy location, just off the Grand Place centre so if you like to people watch while you're dining then this is a good place to eat. We both had the Flambourd Carbonarra, which is a Flemish Beef Stew. This was delicious... read more

We came to this place with my colleges to have a digestive drinks after dinner. We sit under the roof and ordered drinks. When the waiter understood that we are not going to order any food he rudely told us to go outside and have our drinks on the table on the street. We were in the good mood so... More

We went to this restaurant in April 2015, food was OK, but not super, fries were not home made, croquettes de crevettes did not have so much crevettes in it. Part of the staff was very friendly and did good service, other staff members did not so good (drinks ordered but not delivered, you had to ask twice).

We ate here on a Sunday evening and the waiting staff was totally overwhelmed by the number of customers. My wife's baked cod was dreadfully overcooked. The service was so slow that we saw two families leave before their main courses arrived. The delay to get the bill and to pay for the meal was atrocious. Don't go there when... More

It isn't always easy to go out in the evening to a restaurant and eat alone if you are a woman - especially in a strange city. I had two days and nights in Lille - some of the time with a friend, but she could only stay one night, so I had the second evening on my own. Feeling... More

I came in here for a glass of wine, and told the waiter that, since TripAdvisor has this listed as a 'BrewPub'. When I finished my glass and paid, the waiter angrily growled 'we're a restaurant not a pub', clearly upset I didn't order food.

If you are from out of town or not French this restaurant is well-recommended to sample the local atmosphere. We had an excellent steak and frites, plus good wine, with typical French service, and would not hesitate to return.
