The Ugly Duckling. Modern Scandinavian cuisine

3.9/5 rating (15 votes)

This week we revisited one of our favorite restaurants on the Island! The always fantastic “Ugly Duck”

The new location has been open a few months now and is just as popular as ever – booking is essential.

It is just a 5 min taxi ride up toward Topkapi – we would always recommend a taxi as the wine list is lovely and the Home made Liquorice Liquor is fantastic ending to the meal.

 

Sitting outside you have fantastic views over the landscape and right down to the sea.

Henrik, works the front of house and always offers an outstanding service and superb experience - he is extremely knowledgeable about his menu, the ingredients and the different wines that he offers.

On this occasion we started with the thinly sliced tenderloin and the special prawn starters. Both were lovely and presented superbly.

For the main course we had the crispy slow cooked pork served with a sour cream dressing and fresh spinach and the duck breast served with bacon mash and red wine sauce. Both dishes were so fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed both of them.

The menu has some amazing choices, there is a 28 euro a head for a 3 course meal option, which is extremely good value for the quality of the food. There is always a glass of prosecco on offer to start with and his famous Scandinavian liquor to finish.

This restaurant is highly recommended.

Booking essential.
