Osteria del Bivio, Schuttrange, Luxemburg


Osteria del Bivio is an Italian restaurant in Schuttrange, close to Luxemburg airport. While visiting a friend in a nearby village, we went there for dinner. The restaurant itself is very cute, really nice stone walls. Service is good, friendly staff, we felt warmly welcomed.
My friend told me their cordons bleus are amazing but we all had pizzas. And they were great, this is real Italian pizza, good ingredients, thin crust, loved it. For dessert I had the moelleux au chocolat with melty heart and really tasty vanilla icecream, wonderful. Prices are ok. Would definetely be up to go back on my next visit in Luxemburg.

French delights at Diderot


I read about Diderot, a cosy place for French food and also organising cultural events in Prenzlauer Berg, and the next day I had to do a painful and very early medical test so I decided to treat myself with a nice breakfast and went there. The big breakfast for 1 person could be enough for 2, the brioche is amazing, tasty cheese, nice ham and bread and fruit salad and so. A French pastry chef organizes French brunches (buffet) every Sunday, from the photos she posted on Facebook, it looks amazing, I have to try this soon!

Cocktails at Salut! bar


I had heard so many good stuffs about Salut! in Schöneberg that I had to go see it for myself. The place is really nice, very original and cozy decoration, very friendly staff. The menu is really original, I had the March cocktail without the chick peas and it was delicious! Very refreshing. They also can make about anything you might want, I had a Cosmopolitan after that, they nailed it of course. The only bad thing is that it’s a smoking bar and you tend to smell it a lot.

Tapas @ Pan Amb Oli


Pan Amb Oli is a nice Mallorcan tapas place in Prenzlauer Berg. I went there on the recommandations of a friend. It’s a nice cosy place, very friendly staff and relatevely quick service. The menu is very appealling and hard to choose from. I had some serrano ham, potatoe gratin with manchego, salami cooked in whine and patatas bravas. All was very tasty, but very small portion (yes I know it’s tapas it’s supposed to be small) for the price. But still a very nice experience.

Le Chalet, Amnéville, France


20170103_122511I recently went to visit my family in Eastern France and we spent one morning in the thermal and leisure center in Amnéville, quite close to Metz. After some time in the thermal pool, I went for lunch with my parents at Le Chalet, the rustical restaurant of the snowhall, an indoor ski piste. They specialize in cheese and mountain food. Raclette and fondues look good but I had a tartiflette (potatoe gratin with tasty mountain cheese) which was quite good and comes with nice cold cuts. My mum had the morteau sausage on a crozet gratin (savoy pastas with reblochon cheese), the sausage was a bit dry on the outside but otherwise all was good. My dad had the piece of pork leg with munster sauce and enjoyed it a lot.
Service was good. Very friendly staff. Good prices. A nice option in this touristic area.

Street Angels


angelShortly before Christmas, I discovered a new burger place in Berlin, Street Angels, close to Helmholplatz in P-Berg, well they don’t specialize only in burgers but that was the main reason of our visit.

A friend of mine had a Groupon for this place and we went to try their burger. Service is good, very friendly staff. Food is good, burger meat was a bit too cooked to my taste, I like it more medium rare and it was a bit over medium, so next time I’ll have to ask extra I guess. The cheese was very tasty in the burger, good fries.

I’ll probably go back to try their breakfast.

Georgian food at Restaurani Tbilisi


tblisi2Restaurani Tbilisi is a Georgian restaurant in Prenzlauer Berg that I discovered a couple of weeks ago.

This was my very first time in a Georgian restaurant, so it was a very nice discovery.
The staff is super friendly but unfortunately the service was really chaotic, barely profesional. First, they had forgotten about our reservation, they still managed to find us a table and extra chairs, so we could all seat and enjoy.
There were lots of mix-ups with the orders, some plates got put on the table without any word, some dishes we did not order were brought to the table and the time some got their food, some of us had already finished. But at least it was entertaining.

About the food, this was to the contrary very professionnal, the cooks do know what they’re doing. I first had the small chachapuris, crispy dumplings with Georgian cheese, simple but very tasty. Everyone liked their starters, the other kind of chachapuri with tblisi3cheese and egg, the soup, the chicken salat, the aubergines,… For main, I had the mzwadi, marinated meat cooked on a spike, I got the chicken and it was excellent, the chicken was tasty, tender, barely needed a knife to cut it and it was not dry, I was really deligthed. Others got the same with salmon or lamb and all liked it.

I would def go back, mainly for the food, the staff was still very friendly, just a chaotic service, no rudeness or such, so it’s still a positive experience for me.
