RECOMMENDATIONS

Recommendation from Ditte-Marie, member of the city council

Ditte-Marie is a member of the city council and member of the Culture Committee. Environment and ecology are some of her brand issues.

In the municipality of Odder there is a small island called Tunø. I visit the Island every summer. Tunø is generally a nice place for visitors, and there are three small eateries, all good. The place I know the best, and that I want to highlight, is a great place called Thunø Kro (Tunø Inn). Thunø Kro is a hidden place, you must know to know it to find it. They are only open a few months a year and they advertiser not so much. At Thunø Kro it feels like eating at home, and you can't help but feel close to those who work there. Because I have been there every summer for many years, I have come to know those who run the inn well. For May, we will celebrate my son’s non-firmation party at the inn because that's what he wants.  He feels right at home there.

At Thunø Kro, they are very much into local commodities and ecology. They have one serving every day, but they do also listen to the guests and are flexible. I, who don’t eat meat, can also get something to eat, they listen to my wishes.

What makes the place special to me is the very high quality of the food and ingredients, and there is a very relaxed and familiar atmosphere. Often you sit at long tables. There are many guests coming repeatedly, and there are many sailors coming during the summer.

Since there is no menu card and one serving is served a day (and a vegetarian dish, if requested), is difficult to recommended one thing to try. They cook the best hake with summer vegetables, it just tastes great! You must try it if you get the opportunity.
