We were not over impressed by the restaurant offerings at Dagmaars Hotel, so booked a table at Kolvig. This was a very good move. We had a local tapas dish to start with [5 different dishes of local specialities] which was superb, followed by breast of goose. The service was excellent and the knowledgeable waiter explained everything very well -... More

I was pleasantly surprised by Kolvig. I had the local tapas and everything was really fresh. The flavors ranged from delicate to bold and the combinations were very appealing. It was great to see so many local items in the plate. My wife had the potato and leek soup, which was divine. Before we went in I thought it was... More

Stopped off for lunch here after wandering around Ribe. The location is wonderful, overlooking the river with blankets supplied in case it gets a little chilly. I had shrimps - excellent. Amazing flavour, lots of them and locally caught. My partner had soup, it was creamy and hearty. The service was efficient with diners being served in strict rotation, so... More

Gourmet food at reasonable prices, and Ribe is beautyful. We had two courses, four persons at 1400 D. Kr. Around 200 dollars all together. Not much in DK when it is gourmet food.

This restaurant has a fantastic location with friendly staff and the meal started out well. The bread, wine and vegetables were all excellent but the main course of local lamb was a disaster. There were 2 very small pieces each about 50mm dia and 5mm thick and both all were so tough they were hard to cut even with a... More

The food was tasty, although not too memorable. However, our experience was marred by staff who clearly did not appreciate children in their establishment, even when the restaurant was almost empty at 5 pm. For a place that wishes to be the best in Ribe, I found their attention to the children's menu lacking, much different from the great children's... More

Went to this restaurant in July 2012 and had an excellent meal in a very smart restaurant with fabulous english speaking staff. All the drinks were local and the food is also locally sourced. It is on the side of the river in the centre of Ribe which itself is beautifull. Give this restaurant a try,you won't be disappointed.

Kolvig is a nice cosy restaurant located a short walk from the old Cathedral and next to the main channel connecting Ribe to the sea. It it recommended to eat outside if possible. The service at Kolvig is a bit special as you have to go to the main counter to place your order. However it seems that the saved... More
