If you're looking for heavy, hearty, meaty Danish food then this is the place for you. I have eaten here 3 times on visits to Copenhagen - it is great. The staff are friendly and funny and even made a special dinner for our vegetarian friend. Everything on the menu is delicious and they also do local beer and aquavits... More

We had a lovely meal at Restaurant Puk. Our waiter was friendly and we all enjoyed our meal. I had the tenderloin on the oak board which my waiter recommended. My husband had the rib-eye and the kids all enjoyed their meals as well.

To be fair we didn't have the multi course set menu with all of the traditional dishes but the table next to us did and they seemed to love it. We ordered from the al a carte menu and found it to be delicious. The service was very prompt and friendly, however we were pretty early in the night.

Just a great location for traditional danish fare, plus welcoming warm surroundings and service. Would definitely recommend. Table had the Pork roast, Filet and FIsh. Everything was outstanding, authentic and home made. Just a great place, reasonable and great value. GO!

In a five day trip to Copenhagen we visited Puk twice, once for lunch and once for dinner when two of us were celebrating a birthday. Lunchtime is just as busy as evening so would recommend booking, we got the very last table on our lunch visit. For lunch everyone had typical Danish fare, lots of sild, meatballs, fried fillet...

We had no reserved table, and entered for dinner for two just past 8pm. We had to wait several minutes before we got helped, or even, got attention from a waitress just next to the entrance. We got the feeling of having been ignored. Then we were told that the resto was full, although it was not full at all.... More

An excellent restaurant, staff absolutely brilliant, friendly, informative and welcoming. Even lucky enough to meet the owner and have a incredibly enjoyable evening. Food is superb, best steak I have ever eaten, and the best biscuits with coffee! So so glad our hotel restaurant was fully booked and we ended up finding this gem

Visited on a Tuesday evening with my husband while on holiday in Copenhagen. I would recommend booking a reservation as it is quite small with limited tables and the staff had to turn customers away. The waiter and the waitress were very friendly, polite and attentive without overcrowding. The service and food were both excellent. There were a decent number... More
