The Christmas menu was impressive. We chose one of the four appetizers and the main course. Both dishes were very good, although the main course tasted a little too salty. The service was very attentive and professional. Highly recommended.

Excellent food! All the dishes were delicious, made with fresh and good ingredients. Very nice presentation too. The waiters were very nice and polite, and showed knowledge of both food and wine, making a nice introduction of each dish when we were served.

This small restaurant is making fantastic food and having a fantastic atmosphere as well as very friendly and helpful staff. Only draw backs, no champagne on glass, only cremant and cava. The steaks were a bit to the dry side, even though they were medium and medium rare. Wine was at a very reasonable price. If you go for good... More

If Skagen than fish! We wanted to try some fish and went to the sea site and found this restaurant, Contrary to the other restaurants in the zone this was a very decent and elegant location. The fish was delicious, we found out they’re getting fresh fish on daily basis from a fish auction in the port. In terms of... More

We have told my sister and brother in law about Kokkenes and the food we eat here, and when we visited the Kokkenes they did not let us down. The soup was excellent as well as the rest of the dinner we had. As always, we got good service and, for us it is a tradition when we visit Skagen,... More

English: Excellent food with a menu that changes on a regular basis. The chef teams combination of excellent and fresh ingredients such as those from todays fish auction are superbly prepared. The dishes are tasting experiences with inspiration and combinations from new nordic kitchen combined with more traditional cooking. I have come here on and off for several years and... More

We dressed nicely and were looking forward to a nice dinner at Kokkenes, however: The fisk was over-cooked (2 persons experinced this, out of 2!) The menue listed an entrecote steak. The steak was NOT an entrecote, it was not only cut in the wrong direction (not perpendicular to the fibers), the tase of the meat was bland, no signs... More

This is a must restaurant in Skagen! It's elegant, has a good service, the food is prepared with attention to details both in terms of flavour combination and presentation. If you choose the menu, also the price is reasonable. Only the wine is quite expensive for a rather limited choice. But overall it's been an amazing experience

In (the new part of) Skagen this is one of the top restaurants. The service is very polite and efficient but not all knowing oracles (they will however offer to go and ask when they can not answer your questions). We had three or four different waiters serving us during the evening - a bit to many. The food was... More
