“Mother's day - what a deception”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We went to Lea's restaurant for Mother's day and it was supposed to be a good surprise for my mother.
There was only one set menu (unfortunately not the Bocuse d'OR ) and the quantities were largerly unsufficient (compared to Bocuse d'Or) . Starter was a small appetizer and main course was maybe 50 g of fish ..without any side dishes .
The wait time was far too long , although there was only 1 menu : 1 hour to take the order ! 3/4 hour before serving the first dish : 1 cold ! soup .
All in all the experience was a great deception and the price far too high (115 per menu) .
Hope this comment is useful to bring improvement .

“must try once in your live if living close to luxembourg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Lea is a wonderful simple person. The food and service is top class. The terasse in summer or hot days is very nice. Luxembourg could be proud to have Lea Linster as top chef. Love the style of the restaurant ..all is excellent. I have no words .. 6 STARS

“For a very special occasion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went there for my birthday dinner, ordered the Bocuse d'Or menu with various wines. A sommelier chose appropriate wine for each dish. It was a Sunday evening at 19:00, not crowded at first but all the tables were full at the end. Each table is far from each other for privacy. Staff are all friendly and Lea herself walked around the table and took pictures together with clients if wanted. Lea is lovely and very natural. We can see that she loves her work.

The appetiser, soup, fish, meat, several desserts and cheese - 9 or more small dishes to amuse you. This is an authentic French menu, with good butter and creme. At the end, she brought her famous madeleine to bring, which she told us we can also buy in town (a shop in front of grand ducal palace). Each plate is beautifully presented. Fantastic atmosphere and delicious food for special occasion. Not cheap, 150Euro+ per person but you enjoy no ordinary moment and it is a good value. It's also worth to meet Lea, the only woman chef who received Bocuse d'Or so far since 1989!

“great for special occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We were here for my girlfriend's anniversary and the food was delicious.
The menu is well calibrated for a leisure evening.
Decoration is clean and stylish.
Personal advice: take the full-course menu.

Lea Linster confirms her fame in Luxembourg.
Enjoy your time and the atmosphere!
For this level of restaurant the value for the money is good; count 200 to 300€ per couple.

Bon appétit!

“real good food but venue too clinical, service also lacking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

food is real good, however the service and atmosphere is not welcoming. when the owner is on the premises, service is certainly better. Maybe they became too involved in the media and do not deliver the same dedication to the restaurant anymore. this is sad
