This restaurant is in what I can only call a truly idyllic location. The outside tables are by a lake with boats passing by, and a felling of being close to nature. I've been here once before, and on this return visit I wasn't disappointed....More

We were there on a rainy day so indoors eating was the order of the day. Their specialty is eels but unfortunately they are rather expensive these days, but their other offerings was wonderful. Very traditional Danish food. They also had an amazing dessert selection.

There is a new owner and cook who claims to cook quality Danish kro food..... No way, it is less than average, tasteless and the staff is very unprofessional. Too expensive for worse than snack bar quality food. Don't go there!

Great spot right next to the Gudenå-river. The food is good/average and there is room for improvement. Overall a fairly good place to eat.
