Great food, but overprized!

Very nice setting, very nice food, but you certainly pay for it! Especially the prices for dinners are :fear:

On a warm August evening, there is no lovelier spot in all of Ribe than this restaurant terrace overlooking the river. The service is also friendly and the food is very good indeed. A bit expensive, but this is Denmark after all.

It was a great day and sitting outside overlooking the river just made it better. The service was great, fast but not too fast. We ordered the beer inside and our server brought it to us. We ordered herring which was fantastic, it melted in your mouth. We all enjoyed our meals and this charming restaurant.

The guy who owns this place is so welcoming and accommodating, a really nice man. The view is of Ribe harbour and it is stunning. The food is modern Danish and it's not really to my taste but it is very luxurious food made with love. Such a great experience.

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

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.

Had the 5 course gourmet dinner with wine menu. Well prepared and tasteful food with local ingredients. Wines matched the food really well even some selections was surprising. Friendly waiters.
