Service extremely slow and arrogant. Unfortunately that is the lasting impression, despite the food being nice. If you speak the local language you get much better service.... Very disappointing.

A lot of restaurants offer set menus and this one offers a variety of set menus. I picked one with pork chop as the entrée. The pork chop was so hard that I need my body strength to cut it!

We had dinner on a monday, the wheather was nice so we sat on the big terrace in the middel of the town. The food is good, schnitzel, gamba-salad. Big portions, nice people and the price is very good for Lucembourg standards.

A good place for food if zou visit Echternach. Delicious food, big portions and a bit lower prices from Luxembourg city. All dishes were tasty and the igredients seemed to be fresh. I'd recommend it if you find yourself in Echternach.

The steak wasn't cooked as ordered. The meat wasn't really tasty. Probably not well aged. The steak got its taste from the the delicious garlic butter. The Brussels sprouts and the carrots that came with the dish were excellent. The wine that was recommended was more expensive than the wine I had picked and my wife and I were not... More

Good enough for a short stop. Friendly host. Pricing is very fair. The furniture looks a little old fashioned but it has its charmes. We enjoyed local beers and local wine.

We went with a group of 13 people and we enjoyed every minute of our stay in the restaurant. The food was good and very affordable (goulash soup was €4,50 instead of €9,50 in our hotel). The service was also very friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We had dinner here. The both of us had cordon blue. The dish was very good. Nice and juicy but not greasy. I even liked the veggies. It was nicely done. The potatoes were crisp. Very good. The staff was having a busy evening but despite that all went well. Service was very good. This place is definitely recommended.

The meal looked really good, but the meat wasn't cooked perfectly... It was a bit "hard to eat". The terrace and the view is magical, especially when there is a orchesta performance on the sqare. The service was kind and quick.

Thank Krisztián F
