Do you love seeing castle???? I do…… I always get excited when I heard the word of castle and my mine straight take me into the imaginary of the big building which I can wonder around freely and hide from the crowd if I have to.
During our isolation time due to the corona virus pandemic where we try to stay safe and distancing from other people, we were lucky to be able to dine at this place which originally part of the castle in the South of Jutland. The restaurant is part of the castle and it is also a hotel if the guest want to stay there. The place just open as the government restriction lifted and it was only the two of us in the restaurant one week after the place opening its door to the public and only one staff looking after us.
The city is very small and tranquil with many old houses with thatches roof and not far from the summer house we were staying.
We got our drinks immediately and the bread follow. However, it took a while for the food to arrive but we were not in a hurry, so we just enjoy the solitude and the music.
The first dish of fried scallops with celery pure, butter and green herbs was defined. I really love the taste and it presented nicely.
The green asparagus in hollandaise sauce with the mashed potatoes and bacon was okay but quite bland in taste.
The smoked salmon from Faroe Islands with cream cheese, radish and greenery was the highlight. The portion was huge, and the food was really tasty.
The lamb with the carrot and timian sauce was really good and tender. The beef with mushroom sauce was cook to perfection.
Lastly the crème brulee dessert and rhubarb ice cream with chocolate cake was to die for.
Really love the food and it was good to be out and dine without cooking at home. Price was very reasonable for such a good food.
If you love solitude with beautiful view and good food, do visit this place.
