Went here for lunch with a friend. Tried the fried plaice, something that usually is really good in all restaurants in Copenhagen. This one though, was nothing special. It was a bit overpriced. Also, service was kind of slow on the out-door al fresco seating....More

I came here for a late lunch earlier this week with family and overall I would say that the experience was good, nothing spectacular but good. The food itself was somewhere between 3 and 4 stars but what really sets this place apart is the...More

I had read that the view here was good as it is on the top floor. We were not disappointed. The food was also good, a very Danish mix of fish balls, meatballs, bread, fruit, salad, chutneys, potatoes. Lovely.

Replacements were continuously delivered from the...More

Just opposite the famous Rundetaarn is a rather unusual post office museum. This is worthy of a short visit but take the elevator to the roof and you'll encounter a surprising treat. Suddenly the traditional floors of the museum make-way for Roald-Dahlesque experience as a...More

We had booked a table in advance. They had not registered our reservation. They did have plenty of tables, however, so we got a table but no apology. We had the brunch buffet and we were the very first guests this morning (7 June 2015)....More

This is on the 5th floor of the museum and consists of a glassed area and a rooftop terrace. Great views particularly of Rundetaarn. We just wanted a snack so ordered two sandwiches which were lovely but huge - the name sandwich doesn't really do...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
