Lovely Food in Silkeborg

I dined here this week with some visitors from Oman and found the food to be absolutely first class and would recommend this to anyone. Booking is really essential as it is very popular. The service was to be honest slow BUT good food professionally prepared and presented takes time and care so... read more

We asked Gastromisk Institut to deliver the dinner for my birthday. Big succes. Everything was very good, there was enough and it was easy to arrange and to serve. Delicious combinatiobs for both first fish, a tapas plate and the main course: Meat so tender that you didn't need a knife and the vegetables served with it were excellent and... More

First thought - if I'd been warned that this was a 3.5 hour experience, I wouldn't have come - and I would've missed out on an amazing experience. They called it a 5 course meal, it felt like a 7 or 8 course meal. The food just kept coming. You were never quite stuffed, but you bordered on it, simply... More

Silkeborg is a small town but this restaurant is comparable to the best in larger cities. The waiters were top professional and the menu excellent.

I have been eating here quite a few times now and I have never been disappointed. The food and the way it is served is absolutely outstanding. If you have special orders like, no gluten or vegetarian only, the friendly staff will always try to help you. If possible it's a good idea to preorder specials in advance. And also... More

I ate a duck breast starter that was served with finely sliced green beans and pea sprouts, followed by a perfectly cooked butter-fried plaice fillet, served with excellent lightly cooked fresh vegetables. We will definitely eat there again on our next trip to Silkeborg.

Very delicious food with fresh ingredients. Shellfish specialities. Good service with a smile. Lovely restaurant inside but not so interesting outdoor view.

We ate lunch and dinner at this restaurant on different days and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. We were served by the same charming waitress on both days and she could not have been more helpful. The smorrebrod lunch we had was lovely but the portion was so large we were unable to eat dinner that evening! With this in mind... More
