I stayed at the Park Inn Radisson Luxembourg which is close to the Luxembourg railway station. In walking distance of this hotel you will find Mcdonalds etc but I was looking for a restaurant close to hotel. The hotel receptionist told me about EMS. Its a small restaurant. The staff are friendly. The staff's English was not so good which... More

It was more tham 35 years ago that I began to visit Ems regularly and I was curious to see how the restaurant had fared over the years. I was not disappointed. The location, near the railway station, may seem seedy but standards have remained high. Service is friendly and no nonsense and the quality of food, mainly of the... More

Ems is a bit of an institution in Luxembourg. It's close to the central station on a street shared mainly with cabaret clubs. It doesn't look much from the outside but the interior is comfy and there is a nice terrace too. I recently came here and ate moules as they are always excellent at Ems when mussel season arrives....

The restaurant is situated in a (bit shabby) street with friendly hookers. A parking garage is conveniently close. The front of the restaurant wasn't too impressive, the inside at the back was better. They were out of veal, thus 4 of the 10 meat dishes were not available. We were told that after ordering. The turkey cordon bleu and the... More

One of my best restaurant in Luxembourg city since they were near Post. I always enjoy the dish called entrecôte and my wife likes garlic prawns with rice. I never saw the owner of the restaurant but all the waiter/waitress are so nice and friendly. Once again superb food and always satisfied. Keep it up team.

Not having been to Luxembourg before, I relied on the advice of my hotel's concierge. Having asked for local cuisine, I was most definitely not disappointed. I was warmly greeted by Cindy, who showed me to a table & asked what I'd like to drink. I ordered a Coke zero. A menu & a "specials of the day" board was... More

Lux food is a bit of a mish mash of national dishes in my opinion but this place would be a good place to try traditional food. Good value good portions really nice atmosphere good service. Ignor the strip joints you have to walk by this place is great.

This is the kind of place where you go for a quick, but decent lunch. They will serve a day's special as well as an array of classic dishes (steak, hamburger, bouchée a la reine, ....). Quality is good and portions are plentiful. Prices for some dishes are a bit high. Atmosphere is rather bland, but that's not the intended... More
