I really do think that good eating starts in Paris, going south, getting the top in Portugal.
(No, I'm not chauvinist, I know that until twenty years ago, Portugal was one of the worst countries in Europe to eat. But when we started to understand the potential of the Mediterranean food, the progress was fabulous. In taste, variety and healthiness, we are in the top, only presentation needing evolution.)
Another problem that we feel in northern countries is... time. The day ends later in the south, and dinner is usually around eight, sometimes later (in Spain 10 or 11 is normal). I had big problems managing meals time in Denmark.
The first of them right upon my arrival - the plane arrived past eight, and getting to my hotel, restaurant was closed. They suggested me to try Radisson, hundred meters apart, that used to close later, at 9 PM(!).
I rushed there, arriving almost at closing time, decided to eat... something.
Well, I had a very good stake, a good wine, served with gentleness, in what has been my best meal in Denmark.
The price... well, who cares?

Danes produce a number of beer brands, the more renown are Tuborg and Carlsberg. In Danish if you order a beer you would order an Øl – not to be confused with oil. Though make sure you have enough change with you. I paid EUR 10 for a small beer during my stay in Rønne – alcohol is not cheap in Scandinavia!

The centre of the city is, as usual, dominated by commerce. I noticed no many restaurants, nor big malls.
Things seem to rely in local commerce, though China is already there, as expected...

If you come from the south be careful about your meals' time.
I arrived at Ronne's airport about 8.30 PM and almost lost dinner. My hotel's restaurant closed at 8.00 PM(?) and I had to run to Marriot, closing one hour later - I arrive 5 minutes before closing time and had a good expensive dinner.
A few days later, in Nexo, I had trouble finding a restaurant at... 7.00PM.
It's important to go up north to really appreciate our lively south, where you may eat almost 24 over 24 hours.
