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.

I ordered the "croustillant de cabillaud aux légumes d'été" (fried filo roll of cod with summer veggies) and fries. I thought it was going to be a healthy dish of fresh fish, with crispy homemade fries... I ended up with a fried, greasy, overcooked roll of filo pastry sheet stuffed with frozen cod and oily veggies. As for the French... More

This is a lovely restaurant that was very accommodating when we turned up with a group of 30 teenage boys, they managed our orders incredibly well providing some great food. A very enjoyable evening with no complaints at all, I recommend the Carbonade Flamande

Truly an awful dining experience. We both had la Welsh which arrived totally drowned in cheese. So much so both my partner and I were left feeling very queasy due the fat from the cheese leaving the food swimming. Service was slow and sluggish. Pricey, poor food and certainly not value for money. Avoid

We ate here two nights out of the three that we were in Lille. The first night we had seafood linguine which was very good, generous portions. The second night we had the baked cod and vegetables which was probably even better. Wines also good. The waiters were very friendly and service was good despite it being busy.

One lunchtime a few days after Easter, having sat at a nearby restaurant to discover the staff were very unfriendly and that there was absolutely nothing that I as a vegetarian could have from a large menu, we relocated here and were glad we did.

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 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).
