In town to celebrate my parents' respecive birthdays, we were invited to this 9th story restaurant with a superb view over the sea as well as the town. Three years prior, we had dinner here when the place had a different name - and were not disappointed. Now it has been recast under the name of Snerlen (which is also a fish restaurant under the same owners at Strandby). In short: we were not disappointed. The setting is very elegant and discreet and the view is A1. We were started off with an 'apple champagne' from The Randers area approx 100 km south of Frederikshavn - a surprisingly refreshing and worthy apéritif. Once seated, we had an appetizer of a clam in its own shell, served with a citrussy beurre blanc - inticing and fresh! Then in a delightfully slow succession we had caviar, witch, skate with Norway lobster, weever and monkfish in creative arrangements - grilled, steamed, baked. I believe we had ordered the 'Dagens fangst' menu ('Today's catch') - and all the fish were indeed very fresh. All servings were generous and creative with the personal touch of chefs who care. The menu was rounded off with a creative dessert of cocolate ice cream with pear and small macarones as well as a rich caramel 'sauce'. The evening started and ended in the sofa arrangement in one corner of the restaurant. The service was competent, politely casual and friendly. A small deduction was that due to a busy evening attention was sometimes limited, resulting in periods with empty glasses and bread basket. This does not erase a memory of a perfect seafood evening in a friendly setting with a magnificent view - an evening here is highly recommendable.
