With less than 500 people living in Foetz you wouldn’t expect much, but the food scene here might surprise you. This small chic city should definitely be a stop on one of your Benelux tours, as there are some really cool places to sit down and enjoy a nice meal. Read on to learn more about the best places to eat in the area!
1. La Mia Terra
Editor's Note: Photo taken from the establishment's official social account
Right in the city centre, this is a perfect choice for both vegetarians and meat lovers. You can go for the Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni or the Beef Filet with 4 Cheeses, but make sure to order a glass of Italian wine next to it – the perfect recipe for great dinners. The prices are not that steep but the dishes are not cheap either; you are in Luxembourg after all. Friendly staff and short waiting time will make your time here even more enjoyable.
