We ordered a mid-price "cataplana" and received the most expensive instead... and had to pay for it. The waiter's explanations were not convincing at all, they don't offer that one any more (!) Quality was ok, but there was hardly any fish in it, most of it was potatoes. The young guy did not know the menu, he couldn't even speak the language... So disappointing!

We had dinner at Caravela tonight and were very pleasantly surprised. First of all, the view is lovely. There's an outside terrace for the warmer months (not open yet in late May) but they also have indoor tables by the window. You look out over Eich, Walferdange, and wooded hills.

The menu is heavily focused on fish (one page of cod dishes, two pages of other fish and seafood, one pages of meats, three fully vegetarian dishes that looked decent.)

For appetizers we had octopus salad in vinaigrette and warm goat cheese salad. Both tasty and large. Entrees were the Morue Caravela (Cod with onions in tomato sauce, an enormous serving) and the grilled octopus with green beans and potatoes (very good; the little potatoes cooked in their skin were especially good).

We asked for a recommendation for a white wine and were served a lovely chardonnay from southern Portugal (€24,50). It rounded out a nice dinner of very generous portions that left us totally satisfied,

Caravela is a little bit out of the way, but we chose to walk from the old city, and it was a half hour walk. It was well lit on the way back, even the quiet stretch along the rail line, Perhaps better to drive or count on a taxi going back.

It seems like a restaurant you could go to with large groups, but also with children.

Without wine we spent about €90 for two people.

Caravela is one of the best Portuguese restaurants in Luxembourg. While the place has gone through a change in management, it still seems to deliver great food and a decent list of wines to go with it.
It is by no means a cheap place but, if you get a table with a view, and go for their Cataplana or T-Bone steak, the dining experience is unlikely to disappoint.
The service is friendly and attentive.
