Located in a pretty old building in the city center of Luxembourg, the restaurant is located on the first floor, the ground dolor has the bar with DJ. The first thing that hits you is a very funky smell, a combination of sewage that one has tried to mask with loads of air freshener, not nice. The menu is a... More

Friday night, October. Really, really slow service - so much so that we wondered if they'd had a big problem in the kitchen. Then when the food arrived, the salads were ok but boring; the tapas deeply disappointing and unappetising; the tortillas tasty. For mains, I had the kangaroo steak - delicious! - and there was a full bowl of... More

* took 45 minutes to get the dishes and they were not cooked as expected. * no one came to apologies, only once we started to get a bit angry about it. * no compensation offered and simply said sorry but it happens

Great place for a drink on the patio. Interesting tapas on the menu and even a small selection of Cigars on hand.

We stumbled on this place and were so excited by the prospect of Cuban food!we ordered zucchini fritters, chicken wings, calamari and patatas bravas. The only thing worth mentioning was the chicken wings, as the fritters and calamari had no flavor and the bravas were way too expensive, considering they basically just poured salsa on potatoes and charged you €6,50...

Average place for lunch in Luxembourg. Nothing particular about it apart from service that half the time is almost rude....

You can go there to have a few drinks with your friends, and to spend just a casual evening with tapas. However, all their tapas are fried, and get very heavy. I found them a bit too rich, and would not order them for a second time. The drinks are fine, and the scenery is lovely, with something latin in... More

Just a short walk from the Casemates du Bock, up the hill from St Michael's Church is this delightful little café. The service was friendly and the food offerings were tasty and reasonably priced. The selection of cold beverages were perfect for enjoying while sitting outside on a warm sunny day. I liked it.
