Attentive, but not intrusive service. Wow menu, served with a variety of substitutions for our dietary preferences. Small, but tasty portions. After 3-4 hours of leisurely dining, we left happy, but not stuffed. Quiet atmosphere, good for conversation; widely spaced tables for privacy. We got lucky with a same-day reservation, due to a cancellation that just happened. I perceive it's... More

I've been here a few times and have always enjoyed the service and the food, it's got a very good wine selection as well.

Eaten here half a dozen times and the food is always Michelin star quality, with the great and unpretentious service. It's a small and cosy restaurant so you will not get the wow factor from its design, but the food more than makes up for that. As Michelin starred restaurants go, I have yet to eat in one where the... More

This was a celebration dinner. My sister's birthday. Just wonderful. The atmosphere in the restaurant was tranquil but lively as well. Our table was in a window bay and lovely. The service excellent never obtrusive, but never wanting. Now to the food, just wonderful, there were no misses. It is rare to find sweetbreads on a menu these days, but... More

The menu, including wine, is priced at €135. On my previous visit last year I left the restaurant a happy man feeling extremely happy with the experience. I didn't reflect upon the bill. This time I felt disappointed with the food: mainly the Wagu beef and desert. However, I feel monkfish served with beef broth is an experiment too far.... More

I'm not really into fine dining, but this place was hard to miss while in Luxembourg. Fine French cuisine and impeccable service! Our meal for two without drinks cost 180 EUR, so this was probably the most expensive meal I've ever had! The food was well presented and had good flavours. I tried the Wagu Beef which was ok, but...

Unlike some of Luxembourg' s Michelin starred and other superior restaurants, this restaurant offers imaginative and absolutely top flight cuisine, with well trained and friendly staff who know and can discuss the menu and wine list, without feeling the need to talk down to their clients.
