You want an excellent restaurant serving authentic local cuisine? Well, this is the place. It is a long tradition for all locals to have the mussels at least once a year at this place, but don't hesitate to try other specialities like the huge choucroute, the Judd mat Gaardebounen or the Merlan frit! Very hearty service, another reason the locals... More

We visit the restaurant following a recommendation from the hotel stuff. From the outside, nothing to write home about. However, once inside one cannot but succumb to the warm greetings of the service team and the delightful smells. Our group ordered a sausage dish, a burger, and a steak, all tasty. But nothing comes close to the huge pot of... More

I hade a lovely family dinner at EMS, the food is very good, specially the fish dishes, but the service was what made this place special. The Portuguese waiter Silvia did an outstanding job, describing precisely all the menu itens and making us feel "at home". Definitely one of the best meals we had on our short trip to Lux.

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.
