Was taken to this fine establishment by a close friend on a visit to Copenhagen. Skovshoved Kro is situated in the very rich and posh area of Strandvejen just outside Copenhagen city. As you would expect this would make this a very expensive fine dining experience. As it were it was fine indeed and also very inexpensive and totally traditionally... More

Cozy, real old school bodega. Basic service, good typical danish food. We had a pan fried rodspætter ( plaice ) and ribeye with bernaise sauce. Obviously plenty of fresh Tuborg and Classic. I don't think the kegs last more than a day or two! So if you are not Danish and want to get a vibe give them a call... More

Today we were invited out for lunch by some friends at Skovshoved Kro as part of a bi-annual event called Dining Week in Copenhagen. The event consists of a large number of fine restaurants in Copenhagen proposing a 3 course lunch or dinner at a reasonable price (of 215 dkr. incl. a bottle of fizzy water). The place itself and...

Based a little North of Copenhagen, it's not a tourist spot but Skovshoved (forests head is the English translation) the small village it is in is very charming and quaint - on the sea front. The atmosphere is nice and cosy (it gets busy) but also quite loud. The service is good table service but you have to go and... More

set north of Copenhagen it is out of the way but serves very good pub food with authentic traditional Danish fare with outside eating or hyggelig atmosphere inside.

I recently stayed at the hotel on business. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the hotel has a nice feel to it. I would say it is more of a boutique hotel and it is a pleasant change from the normal chain hotels. The hotel is in a great location and only a short stroll away from the... More

Super charming, good food at decent prices. There is a pool table that dominates one of the dining rooms, and I can't really see how that works with eating patrons around, but no one was playing the night we were there. Some acoustic issues when it gets crowded but not too bad. Parking near by next to the hotel -... More

Our family visited during holidays. Being 4 adults interested in good food we were pleasantly surprised. The portions were big, but well done. All the food was well-presented and tasty. Prices were good for quality and Denmark. Big portions, so starter and dessert not neccessary.

Located next to the famous Strandvejen, north of Copenhagen, this restaurant is worth a visit. Cosy surroundings, great food, very friendly and knowledgeable staff explaining the ingredients. Nice experience.

A Kro is like a tavern, inn or bistro - low key - not pretentious but honest food and great service. I have been here on numerous occasions and the food is always prepared excellently. You will not find fancy little dishes but well made dishes often with game, fish or traditional danish cuisine.

Thank Greatdane07
