“Love the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014

The place is peaceful and the service brilliant. The food is delicious and not over priced. You can imagine what it must have been like in the past to live here.

“Loved seeing another part of Karen glisten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014

We had lunch here following our visit to the Karen blixen museum. Loved place and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Tip- shop the gift shops here!!! Full of locally made items and an excellent price. Faith and Carolyn who work there are so helpful. We went back a second time to shop more because the selection was so good and the prices so fair.

“VISITING KAREN”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

Well, we didn't actually see Karen, (as you know) but it was a good experience to visit the actual house where she lived and share in the life she had then. We were given a talk about the house and Karen, seated in chairs on the large lawn in front of the house and then wandered around the grounds and visited the small shop there. If you remember the film "Out of Africa" it is good to visit the house and remember the romanticism of the past.

“Don't go for the history, foods not bad,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

It's easy to think this would be a significant historical place relaed to the beloved Out of Africa movie, but it's not. However, the food is good. Just don't buy the over priced coffee in the shop, it's the same thing you would get at the grocery store.
