Very cozy situated in an old house that has a nice athmosphere this very Danish restaurant serves smørrebrød. Classic recipes - and some twists. All very good. 2 pieces will easily satisfy you for lunch. If the weather is good take a seat in the...small yard.More

We simply love them, the Danish smørrebrød. 2 times in 5 days we visited Den Bette Kro. One with Liver paté and one with pork ribs - beer an aqvavit. Perect lunch, very good service. We’ll be back.

Quirky and old fashioned decor: commemorative plates, lace curtains, a huge wall of akvavit! Really cosy and welcoming. If you like herring go for the silde tallerken, or if you like alllll the fish, the Stjerneskud (shooting star) is awesome! Service was warm and friendly.

We happened to be in Aalborg on a cold November night, where we came across this white restaurant standing in the corner. The abmience was very cozy, and old-fashioned in a nice way. They already had some christmas decorations on. We got a frokost platter,...which was a combination of the “julefrokost smørbrod” material. We were very happy with the food and the service. They had a wide variety of snaps, which we couldn’t try since we had a long drive in front of us. Highly recommended.More

This is a great place to enjoy genuine Danish open sandwiches. And the service is kind and efficient too! So authentic...

I read earlier reviews and decided to try this place. I was dissapointed. Nothing extra. The waitress was arrogant and denied me potatoes instead of bread to the fish. The smørrebrød did not impress. Expensive for what you get. Nothing to remember.

Authentic danish kro with a cozy backyard. We went for a quick after work meal. Most ordered generous danish open sandwiches and beer. Relaxed surroundings and friendly staff. Recommended.

We passed this qute place on the way to shopping. Looking interesting so on the way home we decided to have Saturday lunch. Not disappointed. Worth a visit. Out of the way, but by 13:00 if you don't have reservation, then forget about it. Fine...food at very reasonable prices. The four ladies looking after you do great job. The selection of snaps is incredible. First but not the last time for us.More

We had a delicious Danish meal at Den Bette Kro. I had the "Classic Roast Beef". It wasn't what I expected but it was very good, I cleaned my plate! The lady that served us was very helpful and patient!
