Dinner at Oro e Argento | Luxembourg

K, AM and I hadn't hung out together since March last year and it was about time that we had a catch up. So on Tuesday we had dinner at a place that I had been eyeing for a while: Oro e Argento, a sophisticated Italian restaurant at the Hotel Sofitel Luxembourg Europe.

After a martini bianco / champagne aperitif, we received a mackerel hors d'oeuvre (on the house). When it came to the main course, I picked the Gnocchi flavoured with hazelnut, castelmagno dei Signori Amedeo fonduta and truffle. It turned out to be the perfect choice. I rarely eat gnocchi because I find them bland but in this case they weren't. The cheese and the nuts added a hearty taste to it all and I loved it. 

AM had picked half-cooked tuna cubes in almond crust with vegetables. It looked quite like the polar opposite of the gnocchi carb bombs that K and I were having. All along our meals were accompanied by delicious bread rolls; I tried gorgonzola and tomato. 

We didn't order dessert but we had tea and espressos to end the evening. A small complimentary selection of sweets was served along. 

All in all it was a very pleasant dinner with top service and great food.

  2. The restaurant looks wonderful and classy! Those plating's are made very artistic, but I always think that by such an amount of food I would live the restaurant with an empty stomach, but I totally know that this is the healthy way :))

  16. I have never had tuna cube before, they looked semi cooked but delicious of course! I always want to have expression cake or something coffee related but we always go out for dinner and I can't have anything coffee at night (won't be able to sleep otherwise).

  42. How gorgeous is this place. Personally I love gnocchi, never thought of them being bland but I hate when they're over cooked.
