New Covid19 Health Guidelines for Restaurants and Cafés
We were all waiting for the cafés and restaurants to reopen! It’s official, our favorite restaurants can reopen from Wednesday, May 27th if they have a terrace and from Friday, May 29th 2020 for the others.
In order to be able to serve their customers in the best sanitary conditions, the Horesca sector (Fédération Nationale des Hôteliers, Restaurateurs et Cafetiers du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg) has drawn up a quality charter validated by the label “Safe to serve” guaranteeing the respect of sanitary measures related to Covid19.
Here below are the sanitary measures to be respected by catering establishments for reopening and the obligations of customers:
- entering and moving around the restaurant with a mask is mandatory for customers, as well as when taking an order
customers must wait until they are placed at their table
- staff must wear masks in the resturant room
- a minimum distance of 1.5 m between each table, or if not possible, a Plexiglas type separation between tables
- a maximum of 4 people at one table, except for families living under the same roof
- counter service is prohibited except for a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between customers who must be seated. A plexiglass partition must also separate the service from the room
- restaurant establishments must close at midnight maximum.
This should change our habits! And don’t forget to reserve in advance or you will be refused access.

Ecobox – Mei lang geneissen
One of the particularities of many restaurants in Luxembourg is to serve very large portions. Feel free to ask for a half-serving for your children, this is common practice, and some restaurants even offer it right from the start.
And if, despite everything, the plates are not finished, ask for an Ecobox! Participating restaurants are recognizable by the logo. You will pay 5 euros deposit and can take your meal or leftovers home, in a pretty green box, to finish them at home or the next day at the office. Once cleaned, you can return the Ecobox to a participating restaurant for your 5 euros deposit or exchange it for a new Ecobox, professionally cleaned, with rests of your ordered meal.
No more food waste and long live recycling: used Ecobox boxes are returned to the producer and used to produce new ones
