“Go Danish in Corralejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

This is definitely worth a visit (we did - three times!!). From the chilled swing music playing discreetly in the background to the relaxed yet attentive service, the whole atmosphere was perfect for an enjoyable meal & enjoyable it was. On all three occasions one of us had the dish of the day - and each proved to be delicious. The Chicken & Asparagus stew was the family favourite for us, but the pork tenderloin & beef were extremely tasty too. The steak & chicken we ordered were superbly cooked & the home-made chips were crunchy on the outside & fluffy in the middle just the way I like them! There was a small but perfectly formed selection of deserts which couldn't be faulted. The service was perfect and Henrik went out of his way to make it special (Cava for us on arrival & Mango & Orange for the kids) & is so keen to provide personal service that he turned us away the first time we tried to get in - I would recommend making a reservation. You'll probably find many cheaper meals in Corralejo but none with such fab food & service, which for us were the best value for money. We can't recommend it highly enough.

“More than worth a try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

We have twice been on holidays to Corralejo since the lads opened earlier this year and it was so good the first time we went back. We were delighted to see the high standard of cooking had been maintained and the Menu varied with a spattering of their own Danish dishes. Henrik will take all the time in the world to go through the finesse of the food and wine, so you are not rushed, yet the service is timed to perfection. Don't be sorry you didn't try it

“Fine Danish Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

I cannot really add to what is really already written here. Lovely Danish! Restaurant. Price is 25 Euros / head and half price for kids. Worth every penny for great food and service. Thanks Henrik - Loved it!

“Safe the best for the last....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I was our last day in Corralejo and more by chance we have found that little sweet highlight of cooking.
We just enjoyed the absolutely exeptional food and the very warm welcome.
After having one round of starters we decided to have another one just before the very jucy sirloin.

Simply the best in Corralejo.

“excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Yes it is the right place to eat with quality. We have been yesterday (me, my wife and my two little sons). Everything was perfect, the dinner, the place and the food. As typical Scandinavian restaurant the place looks warm and very well furnished and with northic design. I personally ate a delicious meat carpaccio as appetiser and a Danish steak very rear cooked. As dessert please try the local cheese cake. The restaurant is very romantic and peaceful, ideal for a first date dinner!
