What 2 do on a lazy Saturday around Luxembourg – Victor’s Gourmet Restaurant

A visit to Victor’s Gourmet Restaurant a@ Schloss Berg in Nennig, Germany has been long overdue…


and increasingly recommended from different sources.

That aside, I booked a table for 2, pulled out Mr. Brown and here We go:

As usual and with less restraint than normal, We are a configured with no lobster, salmon for Anne and I am trying to avoid lactose for my comforts.

Well arrived and seated, we start on an aperitif, rosé for A and the local Molitor Brut for me.

Dining experiences, is about details and a very few items were marked as not optimal (all subjective)

  • Red Burgundy was overpowered by the meat
  • Steak knives were sharp but seemed gimmicky
  • Gold – Waste or not a fancy of mine

Conclusion to festivities, 3 stars fame and all is well deserved… and this little visit were fantastic – even competing with Quique Dacosta

 Lessons learned
  • Victor’s Gourmet Restaurant @ Schloss Berg is a destination – book now.
    •  Some Style resemblance to La Vie and Martin Berasategui (More fish & Asia)
  • Fish was delicious
  • We need to learn more about our wine region
  • I need to take more pic’s of host and chefs
  • And to shake the camera less… new lens?
  • Life is good & we must travel more
