Very close to Martyr statue. The entry is from the door at the rear. Ambience is very nice. We were 3 of us and ordered a a Tapas as starter and respective main courses. Tapas was very elaborate and quite a decent quantity. It was polished soon. Then came the main dishes. I had ordered a salmon Brazilian style with... More

- Almost all the staff catching flies rather than looking at the tables. Not caring as it took 4 times asking to have another bottle of water (served in the end by the only good waiter) - Average food. It is not too hard to cook grilles meat and... well done does not mean pink. Meat over fatty (said from... More

Important things first: I had a passion fruit caipirinha that was outstanding. Do it. The atmosphere was a bit gothic - I am not sure if that was to keep it romantic or maybe to keep you from seeing what may be happening around for feet. Add to that the closeness of the tables and you felt like the people... More

Have been there a few times. The sea food is really good - especially the fish and scampi grilled dishes. The grilled chicken skewers are a bit dry and good do with more seasoning. Haven't tried the beef dishes yet, which look very appetising.

I visited twice with colleagues for dinner. Batucada is branded as a brazilian restaurant, but there's not much typical brazilian food on the menu. If you want to discover brazilian food, there are probably better places. On the plus side, for most dishes, the portions are indeed huge. The size of the salad bowls for example is what you would...

Good choice for dinner or lunch. Generous portions of a good food. Served nicely. I still prefer Manso out of this chain when it comes for salads but they were alright here as well. Nice venue too, creates a nice, relaxed atmosphere!

This is one of the few restaurants open on a Sunday night in the centre of Luxembourg. The service was good. Food portions are generous- make sure you are hungry or else consider sharing a plate with a fellow diner. We were a group of six. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the desserts.

Fancied a steak and thought this restaurant should do it well, based on reviews. First the positives - the staff were really friendly and the ambience was good. However, I went on a Wednesday evening - not a particularly busy night - but the 2 waitresses could not handle the restaurant between them. Arrive - wait for table. Sit down... More
