Very pleasant visit

We had lunch after a visit to the museum. The degustation plates were very copious and very good! The patio has a really nice view. My only comment is that the owner should have staffed the place better for a Saturday. The poor waitresses were running around, the patio was full, and the kitchen... read more

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch after spending two hours of driving to the museum. While our food was good and a typical Danish lunch, our kids (Americans) were a bit finicky and took them to the food cart. We enjoyed the ambience and port side dining.

We where a pax of 2 for business dinner. We both had the breaded plaice with new potatoes and asparagus. The potatoes and asparagus was fine but the fish which by the way is my favorite dish was dry, breading was too thick and equally dry and boring. I actually think it have been reheated. The bread served was dark... More

Just had a drink at Snekken. The service is more than cold and it's very pricy. I asked for a lemonade and got water with faint syrup. And it was 7 euros...

It was a lovely setting and seemed like a nice interesting restaurant that would deliver good food and good service. Sadly, this was not the case. The menu was very limited and they were unwilling to “stray from it”. So instead of seafood, my husband and I had a pulled pork open face sandwich which was terrible and, under the... More

After checking most places in the centre we came to the conclusion that coffee time in Roskilde was after 11am when most cafes etc. opened. So we walked on towards the Viking Boat Museum and found that the Restaurant Snekken had been open for hours serving breakfast and drinks. The views from the balcony out onto the harbour were good..

We arrived at 8.50 pm which is crucial for the experience After ignoring us for a good 10 minutes on the terrace and serving tables left and right next to us, the staff finally came to us and said that the kitchen closed at 9 pm! We protested but in vain, one beer and that was it. Cold and bad... More

We happened to visit the restaurant on a day where the teenage staff was in charge - seemingly overwhelmed with their responsibilities. It took ages to be seated, even though many tables were open. The food was good, but we were increasingly irritated by the inattentive staff.

Have been here for lunch a couple of times. Small but delicious lunch card. Kind service. A little crowded during tourist season. Great view over the harbour and neighbour to the Viking Ship Museum and "vandrerhjemmet"/guesthouse.

If you want to try local fair or even viking inspired dishes this is a good spot. Big glass walls provide viewing of the area and the sea.
