My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and to cross dining at Michelin starred restaurant off our bucket list. We decided on the 7 course set menu and each course was better than the last. The amuse bouche of the sashimi tuna was followed by canard pâté tortellini in veal broth and then a scallop carpaccio. Risotto with sweetbreads... More

This restaurant is definitely worth adding it to your itinerary as a destination. GPS takes you right there even though it's off the beaten path. Plan to stay at the hotel, which is very nice. Dinner is a wonderful experience so you don't need anything else to do. Every dish was wonderful. Duck specially was excellent. I still remember the... More

The atmosphere in Sonnora was not the typically atmosphere in a Michelin-Star restaurant, it was a lot more relaxed. That is not meant in a negative way. The crew was very nice and fullfilled the expectations. We had the Gourmet Menu: the Food was great. Sonnora still does Classic Cuisine and it stills taste amazing. The Kalbsbries (Ris de Veau)...

We were mortified when my boss (who is german) made my husband and I a reservation at this 3 Michelin star restaurant. Why? Because we're VEGETARIANS and that is often frowned upon by the chef-world. But not this chef and not this restaurant. They made us feel perfectly NORMAL and the dishes that came out were perfection. Honestly, I cannot... More

Truly at the highest levels of classic French cooking, hotel Sonnora is a small/medium-sized family run hotel in beautiful surroundings in the Mosel valley, about one hour's drive from Luxembourg. The chef himself is legend and by tasting his creations you will find out why! We took the full tasting menu with a super selection of matching wines. Service was... More

As we were in the area for some family business, we decided to try Sonnora mainly to see how a 3 Michelin star restaurant is! It did feel a bit intimidating at the beginning, as we felt that some of the waiting staff were a bit judgmental and the atmosphere was very traditional, but once you relax you start enjoying...

My first visit at Sonnora. Chose the 6 course tasting menu. Service was great, as would be expected at this level, sommelier was knowledgeable and competent, and the food was incredibly tasty - a a perfect mix of intense flavors and complexity. Highly recommended!

You just love great tasting brilliantly cooked and lovingly presented classic french cuisine? Look no further. This food is just fantastic. I really loved their food very much. The service is very good, too. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice. The adjacent hotel is fairly priced although I did not particularly enjoyed the décor. But: degustibus non disputandum! You...
