We had diner at ekenstein. A very nice location radiating the old atmosphere of the building. The food was simple and ok-ish on taste. Limited wine selection, but the bottle we had was good

The lunch menu here is not extensive but the food delicious, well prepared and presented. The soup was smooth and tasty and the rolls generously filled. The room was sumptuous with high ceilings, a warm cosy log fire, interesting architecture and stained glass windows. The service was friendly and efficient. All in all an excellent lunch.

Dinner in this country estate proved to be a flexible affaire. The waiter showed infinite patience, while we chose different combinations from a 3 course menu. Some chose to have just the first and last course, others had all three courses, and the rest opted for the main course and the dessert. The smoked salmon first course was fairly ordinary... More
