Truly one of the best meals I've had! We both had the 'surprise' menu, where we got a selection of dishes. Each was perfectly balanced in flavours with Vietnamese influences and all was cooked to perfection. The slow cooked pork in huge rice crackers was to die for!

Given Scandinavian prices, it was all very reasonable too - around £100 for two, including drinks.

The staff were attentive and kind, without being overbearing.

We sat at the food bar, and got talking to the lovely owner/head chef. A very nice guy, who clearly loves his restaurant and the food that he makes, and wants to make people happy - which is all you need to know.

A friend and I (2 of us, in total) were in Roskilde, seeing sites for the day. While walking in the beautiful downtown area, we decided to re-read the restaurant reviews that I had set aside before leaving on our vacation. Having chosen Why Food and Cocktails, we had a bit of difficulty finding the restaurant (based on our local map and cell phone, WAZE, which sent us around in a circle). FYI, the building is stepped back in a courtyard, behind those fronting on the street. The restaurant is wide-open inside, with light wood and high ceilings. On the day we visited (a slightly late luncheon time-frame), the restaurant was nearly empty. It was a somewhat humid/uncomfortable day for September. The temperature inside felt uncomfortably too warm inside, initially (we've come to the conclusion from our week-long visit to Denmark, that local residents feel physically colder than we New Englanders do based on the fact that we were walking around outside in mid-high 60 degree temperatures with no jackets, while the locals had scarves and heavy coats). Regardless, Nanna gave us the choice to sit at any table in the restaurant. We chose the coolest spot we could find, which I eventually adjusted to. Nanna was very personable. We exchanged conversation a bit (particularly concerning where we were from, and what types of food needs we had). She offered to make a custom, multi-course meal for us, explaining the cost ($81.00+ US) upfront. Having read about Nanna preparing their meals custom for others, we welcomed her recommendations. She made some delicious (alcoholic) cocktails for each of us. Each and every one of the courses was unique, and very fresh- tasting (without any preservatives or GMO foods). We actually felt the smaller portions combined with the number of courses made us feel reasonably full (not the case in most Danish restaurants we ate in). This was one of the best Asian-fusion meals either of us has ever experienced. I rated the value as "good", only because the cost of eating out in Denmark is higher than we are used to in the US. I would highly recommend Why Foods, if you have the opportunity to visit Roskilde.

Every year our family chooses a new restaurant for birthday dinners and other family gatherings. In 2016 it was Why Food & Coctails ... and in 2017 they won the family vote once again! The food is great. The atmosphere spot on. The staff is nice and professional. It's a little bit like Brooklyn ... it's all about Roskilde
