As many had recommended, we watched the film and read the book first. The house and grounds were brought to life by an informative tour. The experience really made the film come alive.

Had a delicious cheeseburger with home fries. I eat maybe 2 burgers a year and it will be hard to top this one. My friend and I split a sinful, chocolate dessert.

The Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages should not be listed as an attraction since it is already listed as Tamambo Karen Blixen in the restaurant category.

Therefore I shall give my review in the Tamambo Karen Blixen Restaurant category.

This is a beautiful spot for a meal. I ate lunch in the garden here and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is so beautiful, the meals were good and the staff friendly. The inside of the restaurant also looked very nice.
