I recently stayed at the hotel on business. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the hotel has a nice feel to it. I would say it is more of a boutique hotel and it is a pleasant change from the normal chain hotels. The hotel is in a great location and only a short stroll away from the... More

Super charming, good food at decent prices. There is a pool table that dominates one of the dining rooms, and I can't really see how that works with eating patrons around, but no one was playing the night we were there. Some acoustic issues when it gets crowded but not too bad. Parking near by next to the hotel -... More

Our family visited during holidays. Being 4 adults interested in good food we were pleasantly surprised. The portions were big, but well done. All the food was well-presented and tasty. Prices were good for quality and Denmark. Big portions, so starter and dessert not neccessary.

Located next to the famous Strandvejen, north of Copenhagen, this restaurant is worth a visit. Cosy surroundings, great food, very friendly and knowledgeable staff explaining the ingredients. Nice experience.

A Kro is like a tavern, inn or bistro - low key - not pretentious but honest food and great service. I have been here on numerous occasions and the food is always prepared excellently. You will not find fancy little dishes but well made dishes often with game, fish or traditional danish cuisine.

You have to know a thing or two about Danish restaurant culture to appreciate this place 100% Danish food is simple, consists of fresh raw materials, and is a combination of bread, vegetables, fish, cheese, etc. - at least for lunch. At this inn you are in a historic setting - af few hundred years older than the United States... More

We go to the kro often and usually have a good time but our recent visit last Friday promoted this review. The Christmas buffet at 315kr Per person was very expensive for what we got. We knew it would be crowded but the tables and chairs were so tightly packed that we had difficulty moving around. I will go back... More

The food here is not worth travelling for especially not as Skovshoved Hotel Restaurant next door serves gourmet food ( slightly more formal though ). But what Skovshoved Kro lacks in the kitchen it makes up for in atmosphere. The place is normally packed with locals and the place it self is really quite charming but go there for a... More

Chose the place as we wanted to bring a dog that day and it was no problem at all. Nice choice of traditional Danish lunch items and the food was prepared and arranged very well. Price level high, but that is the case almost everywhere in Denmark. Earlier we tried the restaurant to the right of the lunch restaurant and... More
