“Charm, self-confidence and culinary art that is almost world-class.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

Often, it is often the simple things that are the most difficult, particularly because you have so many competitors that can make almost the same. The competitors that I am speaking of are us, common men and women. We can all make our own rolled seasoned meat, grill a steak, buy a piece of cheese, put it on a plate and decorate with some greens, but can we make the easy and simple look good while making it taste fantastic? Obviously, I can’t speak for you readers, but I cannot do it as well as here at Skovshoved Hotel Restaurant, which is the reason that I keep coming back.

The place is perfect for a business dinner/lunch, a romantic evening with the one or simply a cosy evening with your friends.

In February of 2010, there was a new lunch menu, including traditional Danish open face sandwiches, for example with homemade liver paste, homemade rolled seasoned meat, herring with homemade garnish, tartare and lots of other dishes, all served with the special twist of the chef Rasmus Kjær, which means that the traditional is combined with the untraditional and becomes a great culinary experience.

In an earlier review, I wrote a brief remark about the service being a bit slow sometimes, but now I have visited Skovshoved Hotel Restaurant 7 times in January and February alone, and I must admit that the four waiters that have served me have been anything but slowpokes, so I actually only have great praise for the restaurant in all areas.

“A little gem just outside Copenhagen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

Have now been to this excellent restaurant a couple of times both with friends and colleagues and have had a great experience every time. It is a lovely setting in a characterful smallish boutique hotel in the former fishing village of Skovshoved and without being outstanding the food is really good and the service is attentive in a Danish kind of way, helpful, considerate and direct but not too pushy or self-indulgent. Those nights I have been, the place has been rather full of people which makes for a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. This is not a high flying vibrant venue but a honest, straightforward and what seems like quality minded restaurant. I suppose the fact that the patrons is a mix of local, well-heeled suburbians and business people (who probably live around the corner in leafy Charlottenlund, Hellerup or Klampenborg) underlines that this is a good place to spend an evening.

“Really good food, but.... strange service and tiny portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Imagine arriving and waiting for anyone to welcome you- it was just not happening.
So we try to hang up our coats- bur there was no room left, we struggle but again... nobody shows up. Finally we walked all over the restaurant and surprise! someone showed us to our table. Excellent wine, nice home-made bread and excellent first course. We took a 3 course menu and the second dish was served without patatoes, rice- without anything. Tiny portions, but very rich in taste. I noticed that a la carte dishes were normal sized, still I simply hate this so--called chic large plates with nothing on in. That images crashed many years ago. Waiting for our bill was the same as arrival, simply not happening. Obviously good chefs in the kitchen, how hard can it be????
