How many Les 3 Brasseurs I visited? I visited this one in 2001 and in 2011; same feeling of decadent place; beers are always mediocre, at least now they have a few more to choose from, and also most of them available to go. Food is very average.
Located next to the Gare de Flandres. Possibility to have 4 tasters (12.5cl) of their homebrews for 5.3 euro, which is a good deal I think. Beers however arenít that good. Wouldnít recommend it, but if youíre in the neighborhood, you can do a few easy quick ticks.
Yup, a chain brewpub, but the original one (or one of the original ones). Located just across the street from the Lille-Flandres station, so itís doable even if youíre switching trains there (for some reason). Standard genuinoid brewpub look, more or less cozy, people going there to eat etc. Visited it with a bunch of friends, they had 5 beers on tap: the regulars - Ambrťe, Blanche, Blonde, Brune, all drinkable but nothing too special + the winter seasonal LíAvalanche - a wheat with spices, slightly better but not all that different than the regular Blanche and a strange choice for a winter seasonal. Good service, spoke English if I remember correctly. They had 3 bottled beers too, the Triple, Belle Province and the new Lilloise, all contract brewed by Saint-Germain. Free wifi if I remember correctly (required some manner of registration though). All in all a nice place to rest a little, probably eat too, though it was a bit expensive for our tastes.
This restaurant near to the Train Station is a nice place to feel a part of the atmosphere of Lille if you are waiting a train. The menu is basic with some specialties of north of France but itís not the best place for it. The beer are drinkable and basic. Staff unfriendly and pressed.
Busy place, with tourists, unknowing locals, commuters, even students. It had an oddly atmospheric interior, but ultimately the mood is determined by the hasty and uninterested staff. One can hardly blame them, poorly the executed beers, overly priced menu, clientele who is even shouting... Canít recommend for either beer enthusiasts nor for the odd one travelling through Lille. Youíre even better off ticking at another 3 Brasseurs franchise.
Nice ambiance and friendly staff. They had 5 beers on tap - all standard and not too good. The food was not too great. Itís not really bad but I can do better myself. Thatís not why I good out for a meal normally.
