Reviewed January 2, 2019

Having read the reviews were lucky enough to get a 6.15 slot for the two us on Friday 21st December. We walked from our hotel to build up an appetite and then Hendrik organised a taxi back for us. What a extraordinary restaurant - small, intimate and simply spotless. It is incredibly well run and they should both be extremely proud of their product. We had the Danish Stew which was wonderful - piping hot and very, very tasty.Had an excellent bottle of red and this meal was the perfect start to what was a superb holiday. THank you so much!

Firstly this restaurant has moved a while back from it's old location in the town and is now located out of town close to the Bahiazul Villas and Club Hotel so good news for anyone staying there or in the locality. Secondly, due to the high ratings this restaurant is almost certainly booked up in advance so if you are thinking of booking do so well in advance of your trip. We managed to get an early table at 5.45pm on the 2nd night of our trip but were disappointed not to be able to get a second booking - our fault for not booking earlier.
We had the lovely welcome from Henrick with Cava as others have confirmed and enjoyed the incredible stew (it really is amazing with such flavour) Finished with the incredible Vodka sorbet.
Really great service and quality. Definitely recommended and if you are staying in town well worth the €5 or €6 euros taxi fare and of course Henrick is more than happy to book a taxi for you for your return trip.
Excellent!

such an intimate atmosphere with attentive service
food portions so big that when we finished they offered to bag it up so we could take away!
the scandinavian twist on the food was second to none....highly recommend a visit!

We first ate at the Ugly Duckling 5 years ago when it was located down by the harbour and still recall our first superb meal there. The restaurant was a 50 minute walk for us, however well worth it, luckily 2 years ago the owners Hendrik & partner Christian moved to another premises just 7 minutes walk from our house.
We managed to book a table for tonight at 5.45 and on arrival greeted as normal by the charming Hendrik and the glass of Cava, for drinks we choose water and a bottle of Rioja followed by freshly baked bread and lovely olives marinated by them to bring a gorgeous flavour to your palate.
For starters we choose the garlic bread and prawns with delicious sour cream.
For mains tonight we choose the Beef stew with roast potatoes and pickled cucumbers.
With no room left for a dessert Hendrik brought us our bill together with lacquers, The Bill : € 52.50 !!
Looking forward already to seeing you again Next Year !
Best regards,
Pam & Kev West Wales.

From the moment you enter The Ugly Duckling you feel relaxed, it’s like dining with friends. Beautiful decor, great atmosphere and amazing host in Henrik! Food was simple yet delicious - couldn’t fault it. Much thought has gone into the experience in dining at The Ugly Duckling, I would thoroughly recommend it. Booking is a must.
