Le Phare Gourmet

20, Feb 2016

Every so often I fancy a change from the usual Italian, French and Asian fare that I get stuck into on a regular basis. My friend had been raving about the Breton restaurant Le Phare Gourmet for a while and when she suggested we go, I jumped at the chance to try something a little […]

Restaurant Jolly

6, Feb 2016

Is Thursday night €15 unlimited pizza and beer deal at Restaurant Jolly too good to be true? You might think the quality of the food would suffer or there’s some catch. I certainly did. So purely for your enlightenment, dear reader, the Silver Fox and I gave it a try. Certainly not because we both think pizzas […]

Restaurant Athena

31, Jan 2016

When a Greek colleague sung the praises of Restaurant Athena I knew I had to visit. (A Luxembourg truism: if an ex-pat recommends a restaurant of their country’s cuisine, go there.) Also we love Greek food and it’s walking distance from our place…with all of these signs aligning, how could we resist? The restaurant is on a quiet […]

Cha Dim Sum

15, May 2012

It was the Silver Fox’s birthday yesterday – we’d already had a fantastically cheesy night out with mates in the Big Beer Company on Friday, so we were craving something light like dim sum and sushi. After finding out Cha Dim Sum in Strassen does both, we headed off there. The restaurant is actually one of three eateries […]

Cafe Bei Der Giedel

7, May 2012

An old building in the middle of the forest…built above some abandoned mines and disused railtrack…cut off from facilities that civilisation takes for granted…no, it’s not the start of a horror film but the location of the unique and charming Cafe Bei Der Giedel restaurant. The Silver Fox and I are lucky to have befriended a couple who […]

Fonzie’s Diner

13, Apr 2012

On paper, it couldn’t be in a better area – Limpertsberg, home of a multitude of secondary schools, a university campus, and young families that seemingly wouldn’t get enough of a 50s-style diner with a cheap and varied burger n’ chips menu. However, I’ve heard whispers that Fonzie’s Diner has been a little slow to get off the ground. So, when recently in Limpertsberg after […]

Everest Restaurant

22, Nov 2010

Only I would book a table at 6:30pm. True to form, when I and two mates rocked up to the Everest restaurant we were the only souls in there. We mumbled amongst each other for five minutes, conscious of our voices echoing around the bare room, but a drink helped restore our usual bolshie selves. […]

Eating out in Luxembourg is a huge part of its culture – restaurants have one lunch and one evening sitting so you can really savour your meal and enjoy your company. Having sandwiches at the desk for lunch may be gaining in popularity but one or more hour lunches is still the done thing. In […]
