Restaurant

“En lille familieejet restaurant beliggende i Gammel Rye, tæt på Ry i hjertet af Midtjylland. Vores passion er god mad lavet fra bunden og tilberedt af de bedste råvarer, vi sætter kreativitet med stor respekt for det klassiske danske køkken i højsædet. Vinens verden er fantastisk og vi elsker at komponere retter, således at sammensætningen mellem vin og mad fremmer helhedsoplevelsen.”

Italian Restaurant
“A classic Italian place with pizza, pasta and "dish of the day". The food and the restaurant is very classy. You can also get pizzas as take away - they are by far the best in town.”
