Gastronomy

Restaurants in the Grand Duchy, whether they are relaxed family restaurants or gastronomic palaces, reflect the country itself: they offer a fabulous mix of cultures and flavours. The cuisines of the world's cultures mingle with local produce to create a rich and varied culinary offer.

Indeed, Luxembourg is the country with the highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in proportion to its population. There are ten Michelin-starred chefs in the country, including Léa Linster, the only woman ever to have won the coveted 'Bocuse d'Or' award.

With an increasing number of foreign residents, Luxembourg City, the capital, offers an extremely varied offer of international gastronomic delights.

In the area surrounding Luxembourg City, a number of noteworthy restaurants, including rustic inns in the middle of the woods, offer cuisine that is often more traditional but just as high-quality and flavoursome, with new takes on typical dishes.

With its many gastronomic specialities and delicious local wines, the valley of the Moselle is a must for visiting gourmets.

'Luxembourg à la carte' or 'Sou schmaacht Lëtzebuerg' is the name of a campaign to promote healthy cuisine, based on local produce, that has attracted a number of restaurateurs.
