This very cozy restaurant serves an exellent classic Julefrokost. The ingrediences are very good, and they are made into high quality food. Their aquavit (snaps) selection is just awesome, and for almost everyones taste. It is good for both one-two persons and for parties. If you want a truly danish experience with quality you will not be dissapointed. It is... More

Really good Danish food. Great service. The restaurant is situated in a quiet street, close to Amalienborg.

Check opening times. We went around 7.30pm last week, in December, to find it closed at 7. More of a lunchtime restaurant. On last evening of our holiday however we wanted to eat early & went for dinner around 5.45pm. Had the most amazing, beautifully cooked meal of traditional Danish cuisine with delicious craft beers (I loved the steam beer)... More

Food was really good, with good service too. We had the 2 person menu (very Danish) and it did not disappoint. I highlight the first two courses (herring and salmon was very nice). Good selection of beers as well.

This restaurant is a great little gem, just off Nyhavn in central Copenhagen. The food is very traditionally Danish, and the place was full of locals when we arrived (which is always a good sign). There were also pictures of the Danish Royal family everywhere, and things like commemorative plates stuck on the walls, which was cute. We had some... More

There are many good restaurants for Smørrebrød in Copenhagen and this one is definitely in the top end. It’s a small restaurant that makes you feel like you step back in time conveniently located close to the Royal Palace. There are also a few tables outside weather permitting but if you want to sit inside it’s best to book in... More

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times, and it always delivers. The service is relaxed but good. And the food is very classic danish "Smørrebrød" When you step in you get a feeling of visiting your grand parents. Its quite cosy and you have a cosy feeling here. I would recommend to book a table, but its not... 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.
