Fish restaurant in the best way 

Skagen Fish Restaurant

At the harbor in the city at the top of Denmark, Skagen Fiskerestaurant is located in one of the iconic fish warehouses, and here the restaurant has been located for the last 50 years. 

The restaurant offers fresh seafood, which is almost lifted out of the water in front of the restaurant the same morning - so it does not get fresher. So if you are in for a wonderful meal with fish in beautiful surroundings, then it is almost a must to make your way past Skagen Fiskerestaurant next time you visit the holiday town.
