“Interesting to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2015 NEW

As many had recommended, we watched the film and read the book first. The house and grounds were brought to life by an informative tour. The experience really made the film come alive.

“Best Burger Ever and the dessert was great too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2015

Had a delicious cheeseburger with home fries. I eat maybe 2 burgers a year and it will be hard to top this one. My friend and I split a sinful, chocolate dessert.

“Wrongly Listed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2015 via mobile


The Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages should not be listed as an attraction since it is already listed as Tamambo Karen Blixen in the restaurant category. This same place being managed by the Tamarind Group and added Tamambo in front of Karen Blixen Coffee Garden Restaurant. Therefore I shall give my review in the Tamambo Karen Blixen Restaurant category.
