“Terrible food and service this time”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We were nine people. Tree kids ordered child meny and the rest ordering the fishdishes of today. Soup as a starter and witch flounderas as a main dish. I asked if one wine was good and what it was like and the waiter answered of course it is good. Seemed like he knew nothing about the wines they served.
It took some time and we got the starter which was ok. Then we sat and sat for nearly two hours. We asked the waiter where is the food. We have been her for two hours and bring three small kids which still has got no food. He went to the kitchen and said that food was about ten minutes from now. It was quite clear that they still had not started on our food. When the food arrived the food for all of us was served randomly on one plate on top of some poor vegetables.
This was extremely disappointing because we have been her five years ago and then the food was good and the waiters were nice.
We got one excuse from another waitress when we left that one chef was sick and therefore it was to many customers. This is to late. If our waiter told us this earlier we could have been prepared or we could have gone elsewhere to eat.

sorry Bodille. Never again.

“A great find in a very interesting place”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We were delighted to stumble across this restaurant, tucked away in the backstreets of Skagen away from the harbour and much quieter, even at Sunday lunchtime. The lunchtime platter for 2 was exceptional value for money given the quality - course after course consisting of herring, plaice, roast beef and cheese (I know there was another course but I have forgotten it). All served with fabulous rye bread and washed down with excellent beer. The waiter was charming and we enjoyed conversing with him about various aspects of Danish life. With coffee the bill came to 520 DKK, a real bargain compared to some of our other meals out in Denmark. Highly recommended.

“Real food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Just perfect traditional Danish food /perfect service and wonderful atmosphere. And you are served from a silver plate, and not just a plate placed in front of you...

I have been a Bodilles 10 years ago, which was the reason for coming back with the family. We went for the buffet. While ordering drinks, bread and tuna Mousse was served. tasted good. The buffet had changed to 4-6 fish variations and pasta, meatballs for those not wanting fish. Some of the portions were Ok and others were either dry, from standing too long, but a general trend showed there was no real taste and flavour in any of the meals! Has the cook lost his pride or is Bodilles slowly turning into tourist trap? Recommend to go elsewhere if you are on the look for eating fresh and tasty seafood in Skagen - there are plenty of other places.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

This is a charmingly rustique restaurant near the harbour in Skagen. We visited the restaurant in the evening with two children and a stroller and were warmly welcomed. The service was friendly and attentive. The waiter recommended a steak that turned out to be absolutely delicious. The oldest child had a dish of plaice and chips that was also tasty. An absolutely recommendable restaurant!
