Restaurant L'Académie Sàrl: A lunch stop away from the rain!
It seemed to be an age since I had breakfast - and of course that was many hours ago in Brussels. So after looking around and even entering some other restaurants, I decided to eat here!
It was a good choice and I had an enjoyable meal.
Sadly during my visit, some loud Americans came in, disrupted everyone and then left due the cost being a little to high for them or so they said.
Favorite Dish: try the local dishes!
L'Entracte: Don't go here when dining alone
Had dinner here (solo) on Thursday 29 Oct, passing by with no prior reservation but attracted by the excellent-looking ambiance inside. Was cordially received and seated within 5 minutes. The place looked mainly like a fondue and raclette restaurant and was pretty full with families and groups apparently enjoying that.
Alas, my food was less than good-- my appetizer ("Trio de foie gras", €18!) looked, literally, like it had been dropped on the way and then hastily and messily rearranged on the plate. Hmmm. Luckily the glass of accompanying Gewürztraminer Premier Cru (€6.50!) was excellent and left me temporarily mollified. My main dish was simple steak, ordered medium rare (saignant) but delivered (very) well done (bien cuit) accompanied by pommes frites that looked and tasted like they had been fried three or four times, some time earlier --when I remarked on this, the waiter said "oops, trop bronzées?" and returned 3 minutes later with a fresh bowl of ...identically mistreated frites... The glass of wine was an absurdly cold pinot noir, anonymous and thin but also €6.50!... so I left it sitting there. Bah. Total bill, 68 euro.
Favorite Dish: none
Brasserie Restaurant La Fontaine: Brasserie Restaurant La Fontaine
Brasserie Restaurant La Fontaine is located in Place de Paris and here you can taste delicious French and international food. The ambience is very nice and it is seems an old inn, the staff is very friendly. During the summer season you can eat outside on the big terrace!
Favorite Dish: My experience in this restaurant was very positive. Here you can taste some fantastic International and local food served by a friendly staff. I can suggest to taste a delicious Cote de boeuf a l'os: beefsteak with bone served with chips and salad; another fantastic dish is Steck Veau Creme Champignon (Lambsteak served on a bed of Champignon sauce); or you must taste Spare ribs geants. Enjoy your meal!
L'Entracte: stylish surroundings, great simple food
I went to this restaurant when I found myself in Luxembourg on a wintery (make that thick with snow) Sunday in February (traveling on business ain't glamorous!)
avenue de Monterey had a string of restaurants along it, but to me, travelling on my own, L'Entracte looked the most welcoming and inviting,
It was open and brightly lit (but not glaringly!).
I asked for a table for one, and the owners/waiters looked after me fantastically all night.
The service was great which was particularly appreciated because I was on my own. The restaurant, on a freezing cold Sunday evening was almost full too.
You could order traditional Luxembourg dishes and also, salads and pasta
Favorite Dish: I ordered a lovely vegetable soup (it was freezing outside) and then a lovely traditional dish of bacon and melted cheese called Tartiflette. It was gorgeous.
Areas full of restaurants: From junkfood too haute cuisine
If you want to eat in Luxembourg City, do not forget the place d'armes. I admit, that it is a little more expensive (some places) but you may find a wide variety there. Mc donalds and Quick, but also Pizza Hut, Chi Chis, one or two French Restaurants, as well as "la fourchette a droite", which is a very good and exquisite restaurant.
just around the corner of the Place d'armes: for a quick bite!
if you want a quick bit that is not too expensive then don't stay at the Place d'armes but go around the corner in the pedestrian streets.
You will find here small snackbars where you can have a nice ciabatta.
Do bear in mind that these snackbars don't stay open as late as the regular resto's
Favorite Dish: I think it must be ciabatta?
or maybe that was because all the rest was sold out!
