What’s Special about Restaurant Kronborg?
“Restaurant Kronborg is like a well-kept vintage car, which has had the engine renovated and is kept in prime condition and nicely polished,” writes Ole Troelsø in “Danmarks bedste smørrebrød”.
“The food is geared towards the classic style but upgraded here and there with inspiration from modern gastronomy, always in a pleasant and natural way. The wait staff are polite and experienced, making you feel welcome and cared for.
