I'll admit that we really wanted to go to Schonnemann's across the square, but it closes early and we were too late. Still, we were hungry and thought it would be funny to go for "Danish tapas". We were pleasantly surprised: the interior was quaint...More

Cozy restaurant with flavors of Spain located in a very nice and quite place. Delicious food, excellent service and reasonable prices. I'll definitely suggest it to everybody that likes good food, good wine and wants to have a good time.

An overpriced tourist trap with inconsiderate service and an incoherent menu. The food was ok but hardly anything to write home about. Not recommended.

situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and

El Meson is the oldest spanish restaurant in Scandinavia. It opened in 1976 and since these day it had been an Spanish restaurant with tapas and typical spanish food. In addition to sampling the flavors of Spanish cuisine, our costumers can be served in several languages: Danish, Spanish, English, Italian, Polish ... enjoying the kindness and friendliness of our waitress..
