We went with the family for a Sunday lunch. The service was very friendly and very quick. The Garden is beautiful and makes it great surroundings for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Lots of families with children. The food, a buffet, was wonderful for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here. Food was very nice and fairly big portions too. You get to meet everyone here! Nice place to relax and enjoy your food and drink. Staff is very friendly too. Take time to walk around and breath that fresh air!

We ate here before visiting the Karen Blixen Museum, and it was a lovely, green location, with shady tables to shelter from the sun. The food was delicious, and the portions were more than enough to satisfy the hungriest appetites. The local take on nachos (kachos? Or something like that) were especially delicious. There were also several vegetarian options so all of us could eat happily.

The setting is wonderful. There were a group of 8 and the reaction as far as food was concerned ranged from bland to ok. The service although pleasant was very slow and it is no wonder they add the 10% service charge as I am sure they would have struggled to get anything had I had the choice.
