My wife was enchanted. She had the braised mallard, which in her estimation was great. I had beer-simmered beef valiant, and I found it tasteful, but not all the easy to chew. My mistake, I guess, as I hardly knew what I ordered and had expected something else. The service was fine, the surroundings picturesque; all in all a pleasant... More

This high end restaurant is housed in a 300 year old inn so the ambiance is excellent. We were seated in the main area (courtyard) but there are many smaller intimate rooms.

The first reaction after I asked for a table for one was "NO"... Instead of saying sorry we are fully booked tonight... I even told the manager and he could care less either... If you don't have a reservation don't even dare to show up there specially if you are a solo traveler...

The house is more than 300 years, and the restaurant reflect the history very nicely. The kitchen has, and deserve, a good reputation - serving several traditional dishes. My meet was just as requested, and I look forward to another visit.

Half of pleasure of visiting this restaurant is the setting - amazing old building that the owners have made the absolutely most of. The food is traditional Danish and always worth the trip.If you are looking for good Danish food in a extraordinary setting, this is it.
