“Delicious dinner – slightly messy service”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

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.

The food in the restaurant of Hotel Saxkjøbing is fantastic. Made from fresh and local produce it is very tasteful. And the prices are attractive. The wines are fine too. the service is very helpful and kind but young.

“Best restaurant in area”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Recommendable kitchen in the region around Nykøbing. I had a delicious hare with dried and baked vegetables. Excellent varieties of brown and rye bread. Meat and vegetables top delicious! Plate was a small bowl, knife not sharp enough for meat cutting, resulted in difficulties in eating. Restaurant a charming mixture of country side romantic and touch of modern style.

“Very good dinner, with focus on local produce”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We were dining inside, in a cosy and quiet restaurant room with a capacity of max 30 people. The service was quick and competent, with a good introduction to every course.

My wife and I each had a 3-course dinner, choosen from the a la carte menue. I had Beuf tatare (with beef from limousin cattle), venison (danish - sommerbuk) with chanterelles, scorzonera, potatoes and a reduced sauce, and a selection of berries (freeze dried) with merringe and mousse. The restaurant has focus on local produce, and in the 3-course dinner I had, the only ingredient not from Lolland-Falster was the chanterelles that came with my venison. This is quite understandable, since the 2013 summer has so far been very dry, and very little (if any) chanterelles could be found locally.

The food was excellent, and I would rate the restaurant (at least) on par with Cofoco (Copenhagen), and just a tad below Le Sommelier (also in Copenhagen).

With two persons dining, three courses each, drinking the local (and excellent) Krenkerup beer + sweet wine to go with the desserts, the bill ended up at 940 DKK (approx 125 EUR), which is very reasonable.

I would visit the restaurant again, if I came to Sakskøbing.
