Deserves its top rating

This is my second visit and would definitely go again. Its not cheap but definitely worth it. Took the set tasting menu which was creative and well presented. The staff are friendly and helpful and spoke english to help us with a couple of things. Pretty much faultless.

it's an all match: service, plates, wines, location.... Nothing wrong. It's quite a lot of money but it definitely worth it.

This was my fifth visit and every time this restaurant delivers. Comfortable seating, wonderful staff who are unstuffy, humorous and professional and food that is just classic French cooking. We had the menu gourmand with matching wines and my wife (who used to run a Michelin star restaurant) said it was one of the best meals she's ever had. Enough... More

There are restaurants and there are really good restaurants and this is the latter. The food fantastically prepared, the staff providing commentary to each course. The wine you can select yourself or allow the staff to guide you through each course with an individually selected wine, this worked well. Fine atmosphere , great staff and a good central location .... More

Reviews were raving so this must be thé place in Luxembourg for an exclusive meal. Arriving at the spot we saw it was located in the midst of the governement buildings so were suddenly afraid it was turning out to be a posh place with stiff service and ministers and ambassadors dining there. Fact is that those people probably dine... More

From the five star service to the delicious flavors, we can say this is one of the best dinners we have experienced in our frequent traveling and fine dinning. They have good variety in their menu and a good wine list. They even pleased our teenager with food they don't regularly serve on their menu, and they did it with... More

The relatively low mark is due to the following reasons: - half of the tuna dish I ordered as starter was so "nervy" that it was impossible to cut. It was a pity to have to leave it in the plate (the waiter did not even ask whether there was a problem with it) - the John Dory my wife... More

I was invited to this restaurant with my wife by my aunt, and we just had a fantastic evening. Everything I had heard by this Restaurant was even understated, every single dish just fabulous, and despite the high prices, the value for the money was still ok. Will come back.

Great location, wonderful food, good wine and attentive but not obtrusive service. Our first visit to Luxembourg but we now know where we will eat when we return. Altogether a great fine dining experience. All the staff were professional but approachable and friendly - a lovely touch for a Michelin-starred restaurant. The food was excellent, as you would expect. The... More
