“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I'm commenting on the restaurant, not the brasserie. The restaurant has a 50 page wine list (who wants to plough their way through that lot?) and a 2 page food menu (that should have set some bells ringing). Anyway, we had Carpaccio de Saint Jacques as a starter; the scallops were sliced so thin they looked like a pattern on the plate and were tasteless. For main course I had fillet steak which was very good with a nice sauce, accompanied by 8 carefully arranged chips (pommes frites) and nothing else. My wife had langoustines with asparagus (nothing else) and the portion was miniscule, barely enough for a starter. The meal was redeemed somewhat by a reasonaby-sized cheese plate and dessert. But for the 6 bread rolls, I would have gone home hungry.
Definitely off my list!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a really great restaurant but its also a really great place to have a drink.

The location is really nice. You can choose a table outside with stunning views or inside which is cozy and very well designed. It's cool and trendy with a very 'old Luxembourg' twist. I ate downstairs and the food was really very good. I had salmon tartar which was excellent and the steak tartar that my partner had was also very good. There was a lot of choice, it was very difficult to decide. It was presented very nicely too. We pre-booked our table which was ready when we arrived.

I was pleased to see so many teas/coffees, I will definitely return in the day for some cafe culture in the sunshine. I thought the service was very good. Plenty of staff and very attentive.

“Sunday brunch: could be better”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We decided to go for a sunday brunch.We' ve been disappointed before but decided to try it again.
Food offer was ok, nothing special but not bad.
What was more disappointing was the service, or rather the absence of it.
The buffet wasn t ready when people arrived,at 12:00. You have to ask for evey single thing and even than it s not sure it s ever going to happen.
Pricey for what you get.

“Good but expensive”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We arrived late at Luxembourg and at last we could find a restaurant opened at 3 pm... We had some dishes to share. The salmon tartar was good but scarce, a couple of tasty meat burgers and a fine cheese selection plate. But serving frozen french chips instead of fresh ones does not seem a good idea. The service is friendly but slow and expensive too.

“always a guaranteed good meal and wine”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

been going to chiggeri now for more than 15 years, on and off, i am more a fan of the brasserie than the restaurant on the top floor. in the brasserie you have a very nice selection of wine from around the world, they change the selection monthly... the food, is always good, i recommend the tartiflette... its far from being a light dish... but a must have... the service is always good... nice smiling cute waiters.
