Reviewing Restaurants

We love a well prepared meal, where the chef has picked the best ingredients and made an effort in order to surprise our taste buds. The latter years, we have visited various Michelin-star awarded restaurants with different cuisines.

Here, we review our restaurant experiences. We began blogging in November 2018, and before that you’ll have to settle with our general impression of various Michelin star restaurants.

We only have one challenge: Shellfish allergy. Therefore, none of our reviews contain descriptions of that kind of seafood.

By the way, we don’t take pictures of the food. We enjoy it.

 

 

 

 Where We Went

 

WHEN MICHELIN WHERE HOW WAS IT
2021 Ti Trin Ned, Fredericia, Denmark New Nordic. Absolutely worth a visit. A very solid 1-star restaurant focusing on the produce and clear, delicate flavours with excellent wine pairings. Read our review.
2016
Revisited: 2020
Frederikshøj, Aarhus, Denmark New Nordic. In 2016 we got intelligent food, well thought out wine pairings, and a staff that really impressed. A very good, wholesome experience. I 2020 it was even better – still a very solid 1-star restaurant with attention to details and surprises. Absolutely worth a visit. Read our review.
2020 Kadeau, Bornholm, Denmark

New Nordic. Some good courses, but all in all a bit of a disappointment. Excellent view, high expectations, but failing two main courses is a huge faux pas. Read our review.

2017
Revisited: 2020

Domestic, Aarhus, Denmark

New Nordic. We visited this reastaurant in 2017, where we had a fantastic evening; everything worked, cosy settings, pleasant waiters and chefs. We decided to revisit in 2020, and once again we had wonderful evening at a very solid 1-star restaurant. Excellent service and food. Read our review.

 

2017

2019

Dragsholm Slot, Dragsholm, Denmark New Nordic. In 2017, we celebrated New Year’s Eve at this castle and got an amazing and beautifully plated dinner. Impressive, since this was an evening with several hundred guests all over the castle. In 2019, we returned for a more quiet dinner, and there is no doubt about the chef’s high culinary ambitions.

2018
Revisited: 2019

Me|Mu, Vejle, Denmark New Nordic. First visit: Well-balanced experience. Beautifully plated dishes. Revisit: Underwhelming. Timing issues. Lack of hospitality and atmosphere. We left halfway through the dinner. Read our review.

2018

Frederiksminde Hotel, Præstø, Denmark New Nordic. Beautiful settings. Solid and elegant servings with many local ingredients. At our first visit, sadly, they failed the main courses; however, we were impressed with the starters. At our second visit, everything was perfect.
2016

Gastromé, Aarhus, Denmark New Nordic. Relaxed atmosphere, well-balanced menu with good pairings of wine and beer. We had one of the best broths ever.
2015

La Truffe Noire, Brussels, Belgium Italian. Best truffel experience ever. Charming chef and host. We will forever remember Luigi Ciciriello.
2015

Vau, Berlin, Germany Modern French. Chaos in the kitchen. Late servings. Sand in the asparagus. Nothing worked that evening; many tables waited hours for their food, and we left halfway through the tasting dinner. Now – understandably – closed.
2014
Revisited:
2015

★★

Lorenz Adlon, Berlin, Germany Classic French. Been there twice, will absolutely revisit a third time. Both evenings were perfect, and in our opinion, this is Berlin’s best restaurant.
2014

★★

Fischers Fritz, Berlin, Germany Classic French. Surprised that they have two Michelin stars. The food didn’t impress, and the wine pairings were off. They didn’t have a sommelier.
2014

Amaya, London, England Indian. Disappointed about the settings, which felt like a cafeteria. The food was bland.
2014

★★

Le Gavroche, London, England Classic French. Deemed one of the best restaurants in London, but this evening they failed. We are considering a revisit in order to get a second opinion.
