While wondering in Luxemburg I've found this cafè, quite spacy and welcoming. The service was kind and fast, and I appreciated the special fajitas de beouf, although it is a bit spicy. It has a good choice of burgers, and they seemed a good choice as well.

Ok, this is no restaurant. More a (very comfortable) pub where they happen to serve the best burgers in town. Other side dishes proved very good as well. The place goes for bio food (even the Coke ;-) ), adding to the 'this is not McD' character. recommended.

I go there quite often due to friends and colleagues.

The location is good, normally the waiters/waitress are quite nice and the service is fast.

What I didn´t like once is that we booked once a table for a party upstair, we were all there, and then after midnight we "were asked" (kicked out) of the first floor due to the other costumers left.
I mean it was not our problem, we booked, the booking was accepted, most of us were still there (29 people approx.) we were having fun and well...sorry but why we should go, move all our stuff, etc?

Apart from that, the drinks are good and in a very reasonable price.

Independent cafe is one of most charming place to have a meal in Luxembourg. That have simple food, but with excellent ingredients. They use animal-friendly labeled meat, bio eggs, fair trade for most ingredients... I think that bread for burgers are hand made in pub :-)
I had the biggest burger in my life, Bronx burger, and I recommended it to very hungry people, but it is soooo tasty... Bronx burger include: 160 gr bio beef, egg, 4 slices of very delicous ham, lots of vegetables, two kind of cheese... (the menu should be in englesh, in that case i would know how big this burger is). But, this burger is the best and the most delicious burger i have ever eaten :-)
My friends had chicken burger and they were extremely satisfied with it.
Anyway, one of friend didn't want it in burger form, and they served it like chicken steak, with salad. They are very flexible and they want to be sure that their guests are happy with service and of course, with food.
Atmosphere is great... we have been there on Friday night and on Saturday afternoon, and both time, pub was full of people, music was light rock.... The prices are reasonable... it is a perfect place to have a great food, or drink with friends... this is so charming, cozy place, with beautiful interior... The place were I will come again, for sure :-)
p.s. wi fi is free of charge

This place perfectly suited our needs in a cold Saturday night, when we were looking for a light dinner, a cozy atmosphere, in a charming place with lots of character. It was conveniently located between the mids of the old (upper) town and the Viaduc (Pasarelle) which led us to our hotel. We loved the exterior and what we enjoyed the warm and vibrant ambiance inside.
The design is intriguing and you immediately notice this is an eco-friendly environment. The waiters were young and lively, as well as smiling; the lights are dim but bright enough to see what you are eating; young people gathered here to chat over a light meal, glasses of wine or beer. Their menu is extensive; though, we didn’t go for a full meal and instead we chose to take some tapas and the beers we were actually here for.
Nothing too fancy, artificial or pretentious here. You just come here to eat good, at a very fair price (compared to a bit more expensive other restaurants are in Luxembourg city), in a warm, intimate atmosphere, surrounded by smiling faces and people doing exactly what you are doing – lay back.
