A good restaurant with the best wienerschnitzel I have ever had. For such a simple dish, it is amazing how many restaurants manage to get it wrong, but here at the Cafe du Pont, it was spot on. The price of it is the same as everywhere else in town but I would highly recommend here for it. The inside... More

Had a quick drink in here one afternoon. Very picturesque views and lovely olde decor. The bar lady was extremely welcoming and nice to chat too. Prices good for the area.

My wife and I passed through Vianden on a whim. Once we got there we were looking for a bit and stumbled across Du Pont. Simply put, it was amazing food. I myself had a pork dish and my wife had chicken with a curry sauce. She said it was one of the best she has ever had, (it is... More

This place looks like a great, quant Swiss style restraint all warm and cozy so we booked it for our wedding anniversary while in Zermatt. The menu is fine if you want fondue or a Rosti but outside of this there is very little. We ordered two chicken schnitzels and fries. The fries were tasteless and the chicken wasn't much... More

We came here after visiting Vianden Castle for a light lunch and both ordered the onion soup. It was very good, classic French soup with an unexpected twist - a layer of bread and melted cheese covering the top of the bowl. Great views over the river and very reasonable prices. A good place to come for lunch during a... More

It offers a lovely view of the river and I liked that they have many tables available even though it had many clients. The food was really good, although I must give it a 4 out of 5 because it had poor vegetarian/vegan choices (being a vegan myself).

To start with, I find it difficult to understand how a café/restaurant receives the wide variety of reviews that they received up to now. Some visitors claiming it being really horrible and others saying how excellent the place is. I guess you either like it or you don't. I am on the side of guests that found this place great... More

Bad food and awful service. We stopped there on our way back from visiting the lovely Vianden castel. We hoped to have a quick lunch and a nice rest next to the river. Up to this point our dining experiance in Luxemburg was marvellous so we didn't really expect such a bed service. We felt we just wanted to pay... More

Food was of good quality and solid portions and the service was very hospitable. Informative and attentive. Very Dutch which is not a bad thing!

A great place in a beautiful town. The owners & staff were extremely friendly, the food was very good and the beer was cheap - pair that with a sidewalk view of the Our River and the Chateau Vianden and it's really not to be missed. If you add it to your listings I will post a more complete review. Thanks!
