I am not gonna recommend this place. We wanted to eat some good food and what we got was a soup after 1 hour of waiting, which was average. Main dish? I can eat better food in the hospital cantine. Seriously, I have never ate that expensive food which didnt even have a taste. Agreed that we payed 200 dkk... More

We came 4 persons and ordered first the soup as starter. For the soup we waited 1 hour. We were not told about the waiting at all. After that we ordered two different kind of fishes, which were too high in price and too low in taste. For the fish we waited additionally half an hour more. We had water... More

If you want to experience typical Danish food ,I would recommend 100%. Good friendly service, very reasonably priced. Within walking distance of the town center. We visit Sand's at least once a week.

We have been coming here for two generations and were friends with the original family. So decided to come back after several years abroad. Sorry to say it was a letdown. The interior was stuffy and not well ventilated so we got an outside table, which was pleasant enough but the chairs and table were dirty. After a long wait... More

I was on a business trip; it was late, at 21.00H. Several restaurants were closed. One was even ignoring me outside, Went to Sands, the restaurant was empty, due to the late time. Very friendly staff welcomed me and had a great meal. By far better than all others in Esbjerg. This staff knows what hospitality is. Next time, Sands... More

Heard a lot of great story's about Sand's. So we went there for lunch. Restaurant has an old fashion / "strange" / "different" interior. To say it's Ugly is a bit harsh... so decide for yourself... according the them it's "art"... Personally i thought it was not perticerly clean restaurant, dust and smudges everywhere.... Menu is the same as all... More

A lovely old restaurant inside. We choose to sit outside which is not so nice , but that was our choice. Food was ok , nothing wrong with it but not memorable , staff very pleasant and helpful.
