Located close to the walking street, inside it looked somehow cheap. Yet, the food is traditional, and the quality is not bad at all. Besides, it serves a variety of herring which is difficult to find in Copenhagen. Both fish and meat were rather good. Do not expect haute cuisine, you'll find a simple nourishing meal. Adding photos to prove.

We went there with our two teenage grandchildren for a Christmas lunch. The food was good but maybe the room less attractive. The service was fine and we enjoyed a happy lunch together.

Went with a bunch of friends for a traditional Danish Christmas Lunch. We had a few years back tried this place for the same occassion and had enjoyed it. This time however was quite different. When we arrived they had misplaced our reservation, this was fortunately solved rather quickly as another party was about to leave. We all ordered the... More

This has to be the worst restaurant experience i have ever had in Denmark. We booked a table for 10 persons after calling 14 other restaurant for a Saturday evening. We were told we were in luck as this was the last table available. Turns out the place was almost empty. And with good reason. We barely saw the grumpy... More

This place tries to be a good old fashion Danish inn, in the middle of town. Inside it looks like one, cozy and not very modern. But not like a real inn in the countryside.We had good meal of beef and Danish Bøf (minced meat). Tasteful! Our table was a bit wobbely and on the move as soon as we... More

A lot of the reviews for this place are pretty critical. They do have a prime downtown location that would be perfect for a tourist trap. And during the summer months, they set up a lot of tables outside, and probably get overwhelmed by crowds, and have trouble. Seems to me, though, like a classic old Danish place, the kind... More

Though the outside tables are nice the food, however, was both bad and expensive. You'll get a much value for the money elsewhere in Copenhagen.

Apparently renovated recently. We ordered a menu: lobster soup (did not taste like lobster but more like shrimp), medium fried steak (served well done for all three of us) and an apple crumple (was fine). There were approx 6 different red wines in offer, but 5 of those were sold out......and what we got, was not really very good.... We... More

My better half and I ordered a milkshake to share. We waited 40 min! And no one came with it. We left after waiting an hour. The waiter who waited us was just standing, staring. We tried to get a hold of them, but none responded. There are so many competitive restaurant just besides. Go there instead. Not this place.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
