“Cozy pub with average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

The food here is not worth travelling for especially not as Skovshoved Hotel Restaurant next door serves gourmet food ( slightly more formal though ). But what Skovshoved Kro lacks in the kitchen it makes up for in atmosphere. The place is normally packed with locals and the place it self is really quite charming but go there for a drink rather than a meal. The service is very friendly but quite slow, dont think its the friendly waiters fault but more so that they are quite understaffed..

“Nice lunch menu, no problems to bring a dog”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Chose the place as we wanted to bring a dog that day and it was no problem at all. Nice choice of traditional Danish lunch items and the food was prepared and arranged very well. Price level high, but that is the case almost everywhere in Denmark. Earlier we tried the restaurant to the right of the lunch restaurant and it also is very good, nice atmosphere and yummy food.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

This was not an unforgettable place, but we had a good time. We loved the atmosphere of this neighborhood(that's why we moved to Skovshoved) so take a walk before you eat. This is also a hotel. The food was nothing special, but not bad either. Good for groups.

“Cozy and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

The Danes are good at making things cozy. (Given that they have long dark winters, they should be!) Skovshoved Hotel's restaurant is perfect at this: the main dining room has a view of the garden but is warm inside during the winter. The food is superb. It's definitely Danish but also inventive; I'd say it's Michelin-quality. Service is very friendly but a bit slow. If you happen to be in the nice neighbourhood of Charlottenlund, you should plan to try this restaurant.

“Excellent traditional Danish food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

This restaurant is a great place to visit if you want to taste traditional Danish food. The place has a very nice atmosphere and is great if you want to experience the Danish "hygge" (cozy).
I ordered roast pork with parsley sauce and potatoes which is a very traditional Danish meal. It was very tasty and the price of it was also decent.
I also had very nice dessert with rhubarbs.
The staff was very friendly and service minded.
I can recommend this place to people who want to taste traditional Danish food plus this place is great to visit if want to meet local people.
