Restaurant of the Month, Denmark

Traditional food in beautiful surroundings Restaurant Den Gyldne Hane in Kolding boasts a magnificent location and makes a virtue out of serving good, traditional Danish food – and plenty of it. By Nicolai Lisberg  |  Photos: Restaurant Den Gyldne Hane

With a half-timbered house, a big outdoor terrace and green areas surrounding it, Restaurant Den Gyldne Hane is idyllic. The owners, Liselotte and Jan Kirkely, took over the place 20 years ago and have made it their mission to maintain that idyllic atmosphere ever since. “We serve traditional Danish food, with everything made from scratch. The bread, the sauce, the beetroots – everything is made from scratch. Of course, we also have other things on the menu, but it is our traditional food and the fact that we always serve plenty of it that has made us well known. No matter if it’s tenderloin or fried pork you can always be sure that 122  |  Issue 94  |  November 2016

there will be more than enough,” says Liselotte Kirkely with a smile. The restaurant is relatively close to the city centre but surrounded by green areas, which makes it a perfect place to celebrate your next event. “We have a big botanic garden right next to our restaurant where our guests can enjoy a walk. There are no cars driving around, so the parents don’t have to worry about their children running around and playing outside,” she says.

A friendly and familiar face Restaurant Den Gyldne Hane is open all year round, except for the holidays be-

tween Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and people of all ages visit the restaurant. “We have a lot of regulars, which is terrific. Some restaurants and hotels talk about how many clients they have, but we would never consider referring to them as clients. They are guests. We know a lot of them and we have a good relationship with them and want them to feel welcome and at home when they come here to eat,” says Kirkely.
