In the corner of McAuliffe square: Can't tell you the name
We had dinner at the restaurant in the corner. There were any number to chose from, and I really can't say why we chose this one. The food was good, the service passable. What I remember most is the other family sitting next to us, amazingly also from Utah, ordered escargot and frog legs. It was entertaining to watch their children take a hold of the occasion and try them both.
Bistro Leo: Mediocre bistro fare
All I wanted to eat was a sandwich and some soup so we picked the more casual Bistro Leo over the Restaurant Leo next door but I think we made a mistake. The guide book said that Restaurant Leo was the most popular eatery in town and owned by the same people but I thought the food at Bistro Leo was pretty mediocre.
Favorite Dish: I ordered a Croque Monsieur which translates into Mister Crunchy, a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. The Croque Monsieur is one of my favorite sandwiches when done properly but here instead of being grilled, it instead came with toasted bread and was a little dry. We also split some French onion soup which was OK and David ordered croquettes which were good but expensive for the portion size. The bill for this small dinner was 21E.
Pizza Taxi: Eating out...in a bus!
Heading south from Place McAuliffe, you'll find a bus/restaurant on your right. Looks fishy but has good food at fair prices. I had the plate with 7 different Ardenne meats with frites and of course, beer! Délicieux!
Wagon-restaurant Leo found...
Wagon-restaurant Leo found it's origin in 1946.
In summer you could see it at fairs and in winter it has its place in Bastogne.
Today the restaurant has its permanent place in the centre from Bastogne.
This was a nice little restaurant right in the middle of McAuliffe Square where we had a nice pastry, and a cold beer at 10am.
