Restaurant Review: Becher Gare Luxembourg


Located in Bech, about 40 minutes drive from Luxembourg City this popular lunch spot is somewhere to try. Right across from the restaurant is a small brewery as well as a well-mapped out hiking and cycle path. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than to enjoy a delicious meal and burn off the calories with a hike through the countryside.

What is it?
The Becher station was the only station in the 50s, in Luxembourg to have a woman in charge of a CFL station. The woman in charge, Mrs Catherine “Ketty” Stoos was in charge of a train called “Charly” from 1939 until 1954. She was also the owner of the Becher Gare restaurant until 2005. Known for placing great importance in great hospitality and friendly service, this restaurant ethic is one of the reasons why the Becher Gare is still a favourite with locals today. The restaurant features huge windows with a beautiful view overlooking the fields. The perfect setting for a relaxing Sunday.

The Menu
On Sundays they offer a set menu for 49 Euros per person which includes 3 courses and a light amuse-bouche. The cuisine is traditional European with modern twists and adaptations. For example, my starter was a scallop carpaccio with a spicy wasabi dressing. There are also a small number of a la carte menus for those who do not wish to take the set menu.

A quaint, lovely place for a Sunday afternoon, delicious dishes and friendly ambience, worth a trip.
