Dined at Hotel Saxkjobing Sunday the 22/6/2014 with 3 girlfriends from the UK. The restaurant had confirmed 5 days before that it was possible to cater for a vegetarian for the tasting menu. I had informed my friends about Claus Meyer and his impact on Danish cooking so they had high expectations.
When we arrived we reminded the staff about the vegetarian but it had never been mentioned to the chef so nothing had been prepared. The waiter was hugely apologetic. It was not a big issue and we opted for the ala carte instead. The chef kindly cooked a special main for the vegetarian which was slightly disappointing. They very kindly did not charge for it.
The rest of us were very happy with our food which was tasty and beautifully presented. We loved the fact that the focus was on sourcing local food from the islands.
The restaurant is in an old charming building in the main square. The dining room is lovely and simply decorated with a nice Scandinavian feel. The prices are very reasonable however the service needs to be improved. The girl was extremely sweet and polite but seemed inexperienced and overworked which affected the service. The restaurant was full which is fantastic for a Sunday night.
Ordered a Lolland Kir Royal and received a sherry looking drink which was not very nice. When queried, it turned out to be an error and we received the correct Kir Royal for free as compensation.
When back in Denmark, I would definitely give the restaurant a second try. –and hopefully by then the service has improved and staff will be more confident.
