When I entered the Aalborg Park Hotel and asked the receptionist if it were possible to get a coffee, she agreeably seated me next to a window in the posh dining room. The kitchen was closed, she said, then kindly offered to have toast made for me.
Alone in luxury. That's how I felt. The accommodating service and attention set the mood and the view out the window, of Danes going about their business, punctuated my sense of leisure. The lovely decor and art work helped also.
This restaurant offer's food to go! Or, it offers room service. You'll understand what I mean if you know what Diner Transportable means in Danish. :-)
Favorite Dish: Coffee and Toast.
However, I'm sure the dinner fare would be exceptional.
Tourists to Aalborg might consider "budgeting-in" at least one night's dinner at the Restaurant Christian X as a treat or to celebrate a special event.
We popped in here for a coffee and ended up with an apple pie as well. This is a cosy little place to mix in with the locals.
Some of the tables could be reserved, but the place is quite relaxed.
Favorite Dish: We did see others who had what looked like very decent food. One dish seemed to be a good size burger and chips, where the burger was covered in a delicious gravy.
We popped in here for lunch and had a great steak. The staff were friendly and the lunch menu is half the price of the evening but the dishes are the same. Excellent!
Favorite Dish: I had the steak medium rare and it was really tasty. We even went for eat as much as you can ice cream, but only managed one bowl full. I did spot some of the local youths who were just coming in for the ice cream and kept going all afternoon. Great fun!
We popped in for a spot of lunch and a beer or two. Decent food, decent beer, for those non lager drinkers. The prices were too bad either.
Favorite Dish: I had the minced beef with horseradish and raw egg...tasty with a beer! They also did a nice dish of goodies and a chilli concarne, but without the rice.
This is a very cosy restaurant with Chinese decoration. They have an open buffet with 25 kinds of food you can chose between (103 DKK per person). They also have a reasonable wine selection (we chose an inexpensive Chilean Merlot). The food was very delicious. If you would like to have a real Peking Duck menu, you should inform them 2 days before (3 persons minimum, 250 DKK each).
Favorite Dish: We started with a kind of chicken and corn soup and went on with all kinds of chinese food - all very delicious.
Booked 3 months in advance via the internet and made this the centrepiece of our visit to Aalborg.
When we arrived we found a private wedding party in full swing and were refused entry. Attempts to speak to the manager were denied and the pathetic front door staff tried to claim that an Email had been sent to us (none had been received). We decided to leave without causing a commotion and risk ruining the wedding.
This restaurant is a cellar in a famous historical building which was build in 1624 by the famous merchant Jens Bang. He had 17 ships and trade with Norway and Sweden and bartered it for wine and spices on the coast of France and Spain. He was not popular among aristocracy of Jutland but he was a great friend of King Christian IV. In order to demonstrate both his power and his wealth he built this grand house, which soared like a skyscraper above all the other buildings of the time. The original articles state that "this building is to be a sanctuary for Danes of good spirit while the enemy is in our country". It was the only place those days ladies were also allowed to come.
To be there is like to be in a time machine and go to those days.
Favorite Dish: They mainly serve Danish food. We tried Stjerneskud and the fish of the day. The first one was a big plate full of sea food like baby shrimp, caviar, marinated fish, salmon fumeé and fried "rødspætte" (plaice). The second plate was a plaice again but grilled and served with potato and parsley souse on top. Of course we drank the house's wine which was white and fruity.
We went there for dinner for my birthday with my Danish family.
I have heard that the “Mortens Kro” restaurant is the most respected gourmet restaurant in Aalborg.
The owner and head chef, Morten Nielsen, won the “Chef of the Year” award in 1996. It has a very modern ambiance with furniture and lights.
The service was good and you can see what they are doing in the kitchen because it is half open.
Favorite Dish: They have special menus for winter and summer time. You can chooce among 3-4 courses. I had chosen a starter with salmon and a main course with chicken and dessert with berries. I don't remember the name of it but you can see on the picture. All were excellent.
In a converted dock house by the fjord you'll find "Rosdahls". The food is great, the wine is even better. The menu is international with a French and Italian bias.
Of course they make their own bread, smoke their own salmon, hams and so on.
Wooden beams and staircases and an open kitchen adds to the atmosphere.
The staff is friendly and knows a lot about the food and wine they serve.
Closed on Sundays - it's a good idea to book in advance (or you'll be waiting in the wine bar, sipping lovely wine and maybe a little too much...)
Favorite Dish: The menu changes all the time - I've never had anything I didn't like.
All around the 'Jomfru Ane Gade' you find restaurants of all kinds at reasonable prices. Most of them have different offers to attract customers. And the food is GREAT!
Favorite Dish: Pizza lookes nice, eh? It seems like Ole_b (VT Friend) enjoyed it!
