Best meal of our trip

After visiting Ribe, we wanted to go to a gourmet restaurant for lunch . We weren't disappointed. We had the danish tapas from the north sea and a danish speciality platter. All very fresh and gourmet food. With it we drank an italian Colli Orientali del Friuli - very aromatic and nice wine.

We sat outdoors overlooking the river. Service was excellent, as was the food. One of our friends said the lamb he ordered was the best he had ever had. The local beers were wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their food. It was easy to sit for two hours and talk and eat. Make sure to look inside restaurant's building - which is... More

While on a cruise, the ship stopped in Fredericia. There really wasn't much to see or do in this small town so we rented a car and on the advice of others, we made our way to Ribe and we were glad we did. Since it was a national holiday, most of the shops and restaurants were closed but there... More

We were pleased to be able to book a table at this busy restaurant down by the river in Ribe. The building is old, but the restaurant is modern and stylish. We were there for dinner and had a lovely time, the service was a good mixture of informality and care. The food was excellent: our starter was a hot... More

Most restaurants in Ribe are very traditional. Kolvig is, in my view, the only one that have success in creating a modern danish kitchen, making use of mainly locally produced food.
