It is no wonder Fyn was the native island of Hans Christian Andersen... staying at Falsled Kro is nothing short of a fairy tale. Many of the "Inn's" buildings date back to the seventeenth century, and are white with characteristic thatched roofs. Falsled Kro is situated in a lush and green part of the Danish countryside. It lies across from a charming port- during the summer it stays light until after 11 pm and from the amazing restaurant you can see the sea, sailboats, and a small unpopulated island. Per Hallundbaek is a world-class chef and we were spoiled by his inventive and delicious dishes (the menus change 8-10 times per year). He is also extremely kind and accommodating. We were lucky enough to stay at Falsled Kro for many days during a combined business/family/pleasure trip (we have stayed there many times before) and they even cooked a range of special dishes off the menu, supplemented by herbs and vegetables grown in their large vegetable garden. The kitchen excels at classic Northern fine cuisine such as (home) smoked salmon and caviar, but more experimental dishes (pigeon with foie gras, oysters with bone marrow and roasted croutons, fried poached egg with local smoked eel etc) were similarly memorable and delicate. The rib-eye we tried was second to none, and so was our specially ordered sole! The French trained sous-chef who cared for us when Per was off is a talented and rising star. His innovative Steak Frites (he made a selection of freshly made chips, fries, and mashed potatoes) and the accompanying sauce Bearnaise with a twist were some of the best we've ever had. The cheese selection is excellent and diverse, featuring a wide array of French and Danish cheeses that even my French stepfather was impressed by. Creme brulee was excellent, and so are the small chocolate truffles and eggs served with coffee/tea from their nearby chocolate factory. The wait staff (many chefs in their own right) are very kind and professional. Christian went out of his way to help when my fiancé and I wanted to visit nearby Faaborg (he drove us and picked us up) and offered to help us arrange sightseeing and kayaks. People at the front desk are nice and helpful, too. The rooms are spacious and light, many with small patios where it is possible to eat breakfast (which includes very delicious fried quail eggs and local organic specialities). The attention to detail is also great- along with chocolates on your pillow you get poetry and Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales. Bathrooms feature a line of high quality (and organic!) products. Some other reviewers have commented on the prices but I think you get a lot for what you pay for (and Scandinavian countries are more expensive than most other countries in Europe.) This is currently the only Relais and Chateau hotel in all of Scandinavia. Sadly, the hotel world in Denmark seems to be trending towards anonymous conference hotels, so charming gems like Falsled Kro are increasingly difficult to find. The only thing the place is lacking is a Michelin star or two.
