“"A jewel in the heart of Karen"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I have been to Karen Blixen many times but each time, its a new experience, l find the service welcoming, warm and friendly. The food is delicious too, well served and the ambiance is great! What makes this place great is that it is constantly evolving with new additions @the bar while at the same time maintaining consistency in service and food quality.

“Sunday Garden Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Great ambiance in the garden beside the waterlily pond. Sunday buffet served which friends enjoyed. I had the grilled Norwegian salmon which was well prepared and for those with a sweet tooth, should try the Chocolate Vanilla fudge desert. Service was good. A definite must for an afternoon meal in Karen.
