“Beautiful Lush Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Karen Blixen coffee garden was simply charming! Our group of 8 women had a lovely lunch and stroll through the gardens with photo ops every step of the way. Good food, good drinks, good service.

Very exciting to see how Karen Blixen lived, the style and feel of her residence. The coffee garden was lovely.

“Tranquility with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The garden was an absolutely gorgeous setting to have a deliciously prepared lunch. The best part for me though is the fact that the waiter noticed I had a head cold, and recommended a ginger honey tea. It was perfection since not only did it taste great, but it also cleared my sniffles for the rest of the day. I don't normally give 5 stars, even for excellent reviews, but the attentiveness of the waiter kicked this restaurant up a notch.
