Restaurants

Luxembourg boasts an impressive and varied range of restaurants, which is not surprising, given its multiculturalism and location in Europe. You will discover all types, ranging from those serving local, Italian, French and Portuguese cuisine, to haute cuisine restaurants.

11 Luxembourgish restaurants received Michelin stars in 2016.

Otherwise you can eat in one of the numerous international restaurants, serving dishes from all over the world, including (non-exhaustively) Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Thai, Mexican, etc.

Tip is included in the bill. However, as in other European countries, it is customary to leave an additional amount (between 5% and 10%).
