“Sunday brunch is to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I like the outdoor ambiance at Karen Blixen. I've been there a couple of times for Sunday brunch, and the food is delicious! Enjoying it outdoors with friends, in a cozy-silent environment makes it even better and more intimate.

You must check out the Friday evening live band - great music, great crowd - and you can get on stage and give it a shot - it's a feel-good Friday.

“Pleasant and peaceful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Love eating outdoors at this restaurant. So peaceful and attractive. The food is excellent too. If you are in a hurry you need to tell the staff. There are a number of old colonial buildings to look through and a couple of gift shops with some unusual items.
