Loved sitting by the canal and watching the whole town get ice cream on the other side. The waiter's beer recommendations were spot on.

Restaurant with focus on local food supply, situated in the center of the city, next to Ribe å. Service was kind and smiling and food well prepared.

Look no further for a restaurant serving Danish cuisine. All ingredients are locally sourced which the servers are more than happy to talk about. The ability to sit outside beside the river is a bonus. A memorable experience for all the right reasons.

It would have been nice to see outside overlooking the river but although it was July it felt like April. As we passed by the menu board outside in the afternoon it convinced us to go in a reserve a table just to ensure we got a table. We both had Brown Shrimps with Avocado Creme Brulee with mild Chilli... More

We were there relatively early, so not crowded. Began with the tapas, which represented the food of the local area and was delicious: lamb, chicken, shrimps, ham and cheese - definitely recommended. Main course was two pieces of the freshest fish of the day. The cooking relies on very fresh, high-quality ingredients as so often in Scandinavia. Around £35 for... More

According to the locals, this is one of the best places to eat in Ribe. The food is very good and the waiters are very attentive. The restaurant uses primarily locally-made products.

This restaurant was suggested to us by the staff at Saelhunden, as their kitchen was closed. It was late evening, but the staff at Kolvig couldn't have been more welcoming to us. They didn't hurry us at all and let us sit over a couple of glasses of wine long after they had actually stopped serving food. I had the... More

While my wife absolutely loved her potato and leek soup, I have not been as fortunate. The shrimp dish I had was good, until about three hours ago. It has now been revisited. Apparently, food poisoning is not immune to Danish cuisine. Five stars from my wife, zero from me. Average up to a three. However, the service was pretty... More
