“Deserve five star despite sulky waitress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The restaurant is located ideally with excellent views to the harbour which sets the atmosphere.
The fish menu is excellent with lots of attention to detail to every dish. This is explained by the waiter - a friendly and charming gentlemen who knows his way around wines in intricate details. All worth five stars and I would come back despite the sulky waitress.She was called Sarah, I think. Sje uttered one remark about me behind my back plus looked sulky and really looked like she could not be bothered. At one point I had not heard what she had explained about the ingredients in the sauce and she arrogantly retorted "as I just said this court bouillon is based on white wine and butter and not cod...". Actually quite a rude attitude. I am wondering why she does not feel honoured to be able to work in a restaurant of this calibre. Maybe unemployment is just not high enough in Denmark.

“Best meal we have had in Denmark this trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Excellent food, wine and service. If I should have any complaints, it would be the wine prices, but that is normal in Denmak. The wine list however was very good and interesting.

“Excellent in every aspect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Ate here for the third time in September. As the previous two times, food, wine and service was perfect. The fish and seafood is treated with respect for the natural flavors and every combination that arrives on the plate is a sensation for the tastebuds.
If you are anywhere near Kerteminde it is worth the trip

This is one of the absolute top Danish restaurants and proven during years after years of extremely high quality of food and wines. You must love fish dishes - and if so - you will love Rudolf Mathis

“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

This is a restaurant where finding fault is impossible. The cuisine is sublime with an emphasis on fish and seafood. The many courses were combined like the most elaborate and exotic symphony to excite all the taste buds. Taking the sensible option of the matched wines was wise. They blended the choice of wines exquitely to the courses presented.

The service was beyond exceptional. Each and every course, each and every wine were explained in clear and concise English (not their native language) and added to the enjoyment of the evening.

Whilst there are other reasons why I am glad to be involved in Denmark, Restaurant Rudolf Mathis is a half yearly bonus.

NO ONE can be disappointed here.
