Had a great meal at Restaurant 5 last night, being pampered by Jeff all evening. Selecting dishes from the various menu options was not a problem, and Jeff devised a wine selection that perfectly matched the menu of Gumbo & Crab Cakes, Steak, Cheese and Dessert. I'd happily go back when I get a chance to get back to Svendborg!

Food was good and tasty. Service ok but, as in many restaurants in DK, disappointing and unprofessional (unless you choose the most expensive menu). Patchy knowledge of and attention to the wine card.

A plesant surprise with food exceeding expectations: For starters I enjoyed crabcakes with lobster foam. It was very good but the main course was even better and I seriously enjoyed something I haven't eaten for years, namely Beef Wellington with sauce bordelaise and fresh potatoes. It was simply divine. The dessert was incredible too: Two servings of crème brûlée: One... More

A nice view and friendly service. Very sound menu based around steak with no surprises. But the quality was high.

We saw the good reviews on TripAdvisor and stopped in here for lunch, without much time--it's directly across the dock from where the ferry leaves for Aero and we only had about 45 minutes. Our waitress was very kind and very good. They don't have English menus but she quickly went through the Danish one with us, including telling us... More

My Danish partner booked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and, at the time, asked if they would put a birthday cake candle on a desert for me as a surprise. They said yes! :-) There are no English language menus, but there is a charming English speaking waiter (well, he is actually English, so speaks it very well :-)... More
