Lunch at Octave Market: Kessel Restaurant

On Sunday, inspired by the sunny morning, we decided to head to the city centre for a visit to the Octave Market.

Time to get to the city and the weather totally changed, so we opted for an “indoor” solution, in particular for the Kessel restaurant tent.
It seems to be pretty busy but a waitress came immediately to us and proposed a table next to the entrance.

We had few minutes to check the menu – jarret du porc, fried fish, Luxembourgish platters, hamburgers among the choices – and another nice waitress came to take our order. She asked the drinks first – we had water and some wine for hubby – and as for dish, I chose Fish & Chips and hubby a Kessel Schnitzel.

The drinks were pretty fast, while for the  food, as normal, we had to wait a good ten minutes.

Dishes were a bit deluding for the view, presentation in fact was not extremely nice and the portions didn’t look as big as we expected from the place. Taste was definitely better: both fries and hubby’s schnitzel were super good. My fish on the other side was very oily and a bit behind in the cooking in its central part.

What I liked about Kessel Restaurant:

  • Service was very nice and our waitress was very available and polite
  • Menu has some very typical dishes you cannot miss – and this is one of the reasons I adore these events!
  • Fries are to die for

What I liked a bit less about Kessel Restaurant:

  • For the fairs standards and in consideration of the price (22 Euro for fish&chips plat), I find the portions a bit too small, the one for hubby in particular. Hamburgers we have seen at other tables looked definitely better than our dishes, so probably just wrong choice on our side 🙂
  • Even if indoor, the location is very cold during cloudy days, so don’t expect to be too much warm.

As side note, as we were still hungry, after the meal we moved to the stand just in front, Churros Holidays Luxembourg, and we had the best churros with nutella and strawberries with chocolate. I am not a fan of sweets but I couldn’t stop eating 🙂 Best stand at the Octave so far for me 🙂

Have you been at the Octave yet? What was your favourite stand?
