“great local food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

For a small town in a remote corner of summer-time Denmark, this restaurant is a pleasant surprise. There are your typical touristy pizza and sandwich venues. For the same cost, you can eat tasty fresh food, thoughtfully prepared and creatively presented. The salads and sandwiches are huge. No one will go hungry. We ordered: "mouldy cheese sandwich" = brie/camembert type cheese with pear and salad, a mountain of yum; warm goat cheese pie with marinated onions; a vegan salad. It all tasted as if it was picked fresh that morning. The kids breakfast - waffles, fruit, cheese, looked amazing. Wished I was 5 and there for breakfast.

The charming looking garden was full, as were the six or so tables inside. The full restaurant is not the fastest dining experience, but this is Denmark's vacationland, not New York City. Service was of a pace to be expected, but you wouldn't want to stop in if you were in a rush.

“Breakfast jewel in Stege”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had breakfast at David’s. This place is a jewel. Great atmosphere with very friendly staff. Food is delicious and coffees fantastic. We had the small breakfast plate and the cheese and onion was sensational - great combination. Nothing to fault. We would love to return for lunch or dinner. Can highly recommend a visit.

“Excellent”

You'll enjoy your lunch, appreciating the sun in the outside garden of the restaurant. Staff is very kind. All the dishes are well presented and the food is great.

“fine facade, less satisfactory content”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

David's is relatively new. The interior decor and the reception speaks of a kind of upmarket, ambitious modern brasserie. It is small and the back-garden tables are even smaller - so this is really a place for a quick bite, or a cafe and cake, rather then for a full meal. There is a lack of balance between the number of tables and size of the kitchen - resulting in longer than pleasant waiting times if you are four and order something that has to be cooked.
The dishes are served in a way that wants to look attractive but this is not always practical: for example, a side salad arriving in a narrow cup reminded me of the fable where the stork invites the fox for lunch... The plate presentation is made using industrial ingredients, and the food is adequate but no more. The interior promised more and different. The place - at least in summer - is busy, but this does not mean that all is well there - not for the visitor after quality.
BTW Stege as the biggest "town" on the holiday island of Møn is not a testament to Denmark's merchant spirit. Given the number of people passing through, there has been pretty little in terms of shops, cafes, restaurants, etc. This has started to change... slowly. I hope it will keep changing, maybe a bit faster, please?
