We were staying in Luxembourg for a weekend and were looking for a nice place to have dinner on Easter Sunday, so after some wondering around in the streets of Luxembourg, we ended up in fish restaurant La Lorraine.
We were early for dinner (17.30u) and it was clear that the staff wasn’t complete yet. Only one waiter had to do everything and he got a little bit agitated when some other clients ordered extra fries and he couldn’t get through to the kitchen.
The interior of the restaurant is decorated with lots of wood an stone pillars. Classic, but very cozy. It was a little bit chilly though.
Our waiter was very friendly and we got to order quickly (to be fair, the restaurant at that time was almost empty, later on more people started to come in). We went for the express menu and started our meal with Breton cupped oysters. The oysters were presented beautifully and very good. A great start. My boyfriend ordered a beer an I went for the aperitif La Lorraine: crèmant de Luxembourg with liqueur from prunes. Very nice.
As the main course I got pollack and shrimps soufflé with vegetable tagliatelle. Wasn’t quite sure how the dish would look, but I wanted to try it anyway. My boyfriend stayed true to the classics and chose the chicken vol-au-vent with mushrooms.
Both dishes were fine, but not exceptional. I enjoyed the vegetable tagliatelle, but was hoping for more shrimps in the soufflé.
We skipped dessert, but got some cake and easter eggs on the house. In total we paid 78,60 euro’s, drinks included. A little bit pricy, but we had a nice dinner nonetheless.
