Very nice restaurant in the koldinghus castle. The lunch buffet was extraordinary high quality. Everything was hand made, nothing industrialized. Dinner was also very good, but I found the portions a tiny bit small.

The restaurant is located in Kolding Castle. It is a buffet, nothing expensive to be located in a castle. Good attention.

The cellars of the Koldinghus castle offer an excellent restaurant. Nicely restored with fitting ambience. Visited for luncheon. Three types of herring, a good piece of steak, two cheeses and a savory. Very well prepared and presented. Good local beer to accompany the meal.

Our menu is a modern interpretation of classic Danish dishes cooked and prepared by using locally sourced produce. Madkælderen Koldinghus is open for lunch every day from 11:30 - 15:00. Here we serve our popular lunch buffet with Danish classics like herring, prawns, smoked salmon, liver paté, meatballs (frikadeller), potato salad, rib roast and much more. We are open for evening dining Thursday, Friday and Saturday (reservation required). Each month features a new fixed menu of 6 servings based on seasonal ingredients. The evening starts with an aperitif and snacks, followed by a 4-course gourmet menu. The evening is rounded off with coffee, liqueurs and sweets. Through the evening you can retrieve wines from our wine buffet.
