On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, MADKÆLDEREN offers a unique dinner experience, where seasonal ingredients from local suppliers are turned into tasty and creative dishes. The evening begins with an aperitif and a snack, followed by a four-course gourmet dinner, rounded off with coffee, brandy and a sweet bite. Unlimited wine is served throughout the evening.
