The food was reasonably good but service was horrible. They failed to bring one of the entrees and no one bothered to check on us. Then the waiter argued about the bill.

We've been coming here every couple of years with close friends. It is tradition and we always have the same meal: an excellent smoked salmon lunch. Service is good, the dining room is small and cosy, and since the restaurant is also a bakery you can buy 'rugbrod' bread mix so you can make it at home. Good fun. Always... More

A most relaxing lunch. Good service and pleasant food. Location looking out over the inner harbour is pleasant if you can detract from all the fishing paraphernalia that litters the area at the end of the grassed area previously used for drying fishing nets. Some dishes are better value than others so a careful assessment before ordering is essential. The... More

We were disappointed in our meals. The meals looked promising when presented but it was bland and lacked flavor. Our table ordered a variety of dishes and we were all dissatisfied. I felt bad for the waiter. The restaurant was full and it appeared that there were only two servers. As a result, service was slow. Overpriced, poor food and... More

Very nice restaurant with great seafood. Lovely home made bread. Service was pleasant, but somewhat overly efficient, as it was a busy night. Their moules frittes comes highly recommended, as does the creyfish!

We had dinner at this restaurant upon arrival in Denmark after having driven from Norway. We had no reservation but had no trouble getting a table inside. The restaurant was clean with traditional interiour and an open kitchen, wich to me is a plus and means that they have nothing to hide hygienic wise. We had fish n'chips and it... More

This is where you will find fantastic views over the harbor and the sea as well as lovely food and super friendly service in an almost historic setting. The restaurant was designed in 1976 by the late renowned Danish architect Mogens Lassen, and it remains almost unchanged to this day. Well worth a visit.
