A pit-stop for the afternoon-coffee in tremendous facilities and super cafelatte/irish coffee is recommended.

I think I had set my expectations a bit to high thinking this would be a slightly scaled down version of Ruth's Gourmet. It was good food, but not Michelin star food. That being said, the atmosphere was nice, very good acrostics, and good food for the price. Quality is that of copenhagen but not the prices. Of the four... More

I love moules ét frit and I love the sea. Ruth's Brasserie is the absolute best place to have amazing food and service. I have been there every year the last 3 years and I have had moules ét frit every single time and it is still the best moules ét frit you can get in the northern Denmark!!!!

Our meal was very delicious, but at a high cost. They had a few vegetarian options as well, though the best part was the creme brulee for dessert. I will say though, that while the service started very nicely, our waitress didn't come back for at least 20 minutes after leaving us to chose a dessert -- she instead was... More

Nice place, ate there many times as stayed at the hotel for the wedding. Tasty food but too many seafood options and not enough vegan, at all actually. They made me a simple green salad on request but not even avocado, legumes or any proper vegan invention at all :( really sad giving that this is such a wonderful hotel.... More

Well it's not that I can't afford to go to a place like this, nor would I ever show off my golden credit card, but I simply had the feeling that it's all just a bit overpriced in terms of value for money. - Talking High End Class here: I've felt I had a better value for Money in Zurich's... More

We always enjoy visiting this place, it's very good during summer on the terrace, but also very charming off season, and open all year round, which we appreciate as regular Skagen visitors. For special occasions also visit the excellent gourmet restaurant at Ruth's, but remember to bring plenty of cash or a well functioning credit card.

French Brasserie style and food, very busy during peak season but always friendly service. Having eaten here numerous times, we can state that almost all the dishes are really good, made with local products. However stay away from the fish soup. Not very good, and I doubt that the fish was fresh.

Food is good and portions plenty and a good selection of old school brasserie classics such as moules frites and seafood platter. Service is OK but our waitress was certainly not over attentive. Be basically saw her when we ordered, when the food was served and when we paid the bill. Which was more restaurant than brasserie style. You sit... More

Went for a bike ride to Gl Skagen and dropped in at Ruth's Brasserie. Sat outside and had a wonderful 2 course dinner. Very friendly service and nice to see the CEO of the whole establishment on the floor doing service!! #realleadership
