“Great steak - service should be more international”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Go here if you really want to eat a good steak in Denmark. They cook them just the way you order them and are served on a hot cast iron plate. The salad bar is not very exciting, some boring stuff, like the ready-made pickled stuff you see on the shelves of larger supermarkets.
I been here quite a number of times, mainly with customers. Just ensure they like steak. Unfortunately, the service is not very international. If you are used to the service level outside Northwest Europe, you will be disappointed at the Charolais Kro. When we came in last week, it took some time before they noticed our party of four and gave us a table, it took a long time before they offered us a drink and the menu and I never got a refill during the whole evening. When I wanted to ask for the check, it took some time to get their attentention, as the waitresses were talking privately together behind the counter.
Prices are reasonable, as the meat is a good quality. The restaurant is pretty small, so it can feel crowded, if there are many people or your party is bigger than four.
But the steaks are excellent here, so if you do not mind the informel Danish service, this is an OK restaurant.

“If you like steak, eat here. Preferably when someone else is paying.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2010

This restaurant is just across the road from the Scandic Hotel and I believe the building used to be a church. The exterior isn't particularly spectacular but the restaurant itself is very welcoming once you're through the porch area.

We didn't make a reservation on any evening we went there, but we always managed to get a table without having to wait. I think that might have been more to do with our dining habits since we seem to eat a bit later than our Danish counterparts - most restaurants close at 10pm.

When you're seated you'll receive a menu and a card to fill in where you tick the type of steak you want, how you want it cooked, what sauce you want it served with and how you want your accompanying potatoes done. All steaks come with a salad which you help yourself to from the salad buffet - try the house dressing, it's amazing!

The steak itself (I ordered the tenderloin) was cooked to perfection and just the way I ordered it. It was absolutely delicious and served on a very hot cast iron serving plate which ensured that it warm until I was finished.

The restaurant offers a selection of wines to choose from and there's beer or soft drinks too.

It's not cheap. 270DKK for a medium sized tenderloin and a bottle of wine will be more than that. Is it worth it? Absolutely - they really know what they are doing!
