“#1 Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

First of all, these are the best burgers in Luxembourg!! No comparaison to other burgers! Everybody who says the oppsite, doesn't know anything about good food! I go there once a month and that for 2 years, now. I've never had to complain about the service or other things. Ok, sometimes it's loud inside, because it's a little café, but who cares about the noise, when the food is delicious?!
Bottom line: If you don't visit it, you gonna miss an excellent burger!

“Burgers, wine and whiskey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Best burgers in town, paired with a great choice of wines by the glass or whiskey, plus friendly service. Waiters speak English.

“It's all about the burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

A popular spot off the beaten track with an interesting (and often tasty) selection of burgers, wines and beers - the place is small and booking is recommended.

Unfortunately, Cafe Bel Air suffers from inconsistency - sometimes the service is great and sometimes it's not... at times, the food is made to perfection while on other occasions, the burgers are cold and too greasy (the bun is consistently annoying in my opinion), your bear may be perfectly cold on a hot summer evening, but don't be surprised if it comes lukewarm... and so on...

With some effort and determination on behalf of its owners and staff, it definitely has the potential to excel (my current rating: 3.5).

Bottom line: worth a visit, but go with your fingers crossed :-)

“Good food, mediocre service, noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The food at this place is great. Their burgers and salads are really good, and made from fresh produce.
However, at times you really need to chase the waiters to be served (especially if you're not drinking wine).
During lunchtime the atmosphere is good, however when we were there in the evening last time it was impossible to have a conversation due to the noise caused by the patrons on the neighbouring tables. Not a good place for a romantic dinner or if you want to actually converse with the person opposite you.

Chère Michèle, merci pour votre avis sur Tripadvisor. Merci aussi d'avoir le courage d'être clairement identifiable (photo, nom etc...). Effectivement le Café Bel Air n'est pas romantique, mais au moins la lumière y est tamisée. Effectivement il y a du bruit, mais c'est un endroit plein de vie et de gens heureux d'être là. Cela n'est un secret pour personne et les clients prennent cela avec beaucoup de légèreté. Heureusement la nourriture vous a plu. Mais curieusement vous êtes la seule à critiquer le service (voir avis tripadvisor, Google, etc...). Aviez-vous eu une mauvaise journée ? Notre service est notre plus grand point fort, je ne peux pas croire ce que vous écrivez. Oui le patron parle avec ses clients, j'aime cela et cela n'est pas critiquable à mes yeux. Mais de là à dire que l'on ne vous prête pas d'attention si vous ne buvez pas de vin c'est assez petit. Mais peut-être vous êtes vous simplement trompée d'établissement. Il y a des dizaines d'autres endroits en ville, merci d'y aller faire un tour pour qu'ils profitent de votre amabilité et franchise. Le patron du Bel Air
