Food & Dining in Luxembourg


For its size, Luxembourg has a large number of highly rated restaurants; but don't neglect the sidewalk cafes and bistros. Small village pubs may appear modest, but they usually serve tasty, reasonably priced meals.

A wide variety of food is available in Luxembourg, including Chinese, Italian, French and Belgian cuisines. Some of Luxembourg's own specialties include bouneschlupp (a soup with French beans), kachkeis (soft melted cheese eaten with bread), judd mat gaardebounen (smoked pork with broad beans) and quetschentaart (plum tart). Also try steak de cheval (horse steaks), trout and pike, and Ardennes ham served with French fries.

If you want to try some Luxembourgish fast food, most butchers carry ready-to-eat meals, such as pate riesling. This handful of meat in a pastry is tasty, affordable and easy to eat. For a sit-down meal, good restaurants serving Luxembourgish cuisine include Mousel's Cantine and Restaurant la Maison des Brasseurs in Luxembourg City, and Juegdschlass Cafe-Restaurant in the hills between Beggen and Muehlenbach.

Luxembourg's considerable Portuguese community also contributes to the culinary mix. For a Spanish and Portuguese experience, try Chez Bacano in Luxembourg City.

A point to note is that Luxembourg restaurants are generally dog-friendly.

Many restaurants require reservations for lunch and dinner, and observe strict lunch and dinner hours – usually noon-2 pm and 7-9:30 pm. The later you go for lunch or dinner, the more likely the daily special (and much of the rest of the food on the menu) could be gone. If you need to eat outside lunch or dinner hours, fast food may be the only choice, but even then, many fast-food establishments are closed by 11 pm most nights.

Luxembourg City

Home to a suprisingly high number of Michelin star establishments, the city houses many fine eateries. Luxembourg also has a very large population of Italians that came to the country in the late 19th century so Pizzerias in Luxembourg are always very reliable and frequent. For something cheap and quick the Place d'Armes is the best bet.

La Fontaine (25, Place de Paris) is one of a number of affordable bistros clustered around Place de Paris, conveniently located halfway between the station and the old city. The quadrilingual menus run the gamut from pizza and mussels to Luxembourgish classics like judd mat gaardebounen (smoked pork neck with broad beans), plus the daily specials.

Taj Mahal (2, Rue de Strasbourg) is a fantastic curry house serving rich and delicious Indian food. Very friendly staff too. Well worth making the short trip from the centre to this restaurant located near the Gare.

At Le Palais D'Asie (47, Avenue de la Liberté), marvel at the skill of the chefs as they prepare Japanese and Chinese style cuisine before your very eyes including ceiling-high flames and an "egg show". As entertaining as it is tasty. Arrive hungry as the portions are generous.

For local cuisine, head to Mousel Cantine (46, Montée de Clausen) where you can wash down huge portions of pork knee and broad beans with tankards of Mousel lager.
