We got there by accident, and were absolutely struck with the interior (semi-basement room), everything is old and dark. Despite this, I found an outlet in the hall for charging the phone. We ate delicious food and relatively not expensive.

I liked the place very much, including its cosy and traditional atmosphere, however, if you are a vegetarian you should definitely avoid this place. Apparently Danish traditional cousine is not for vegetarians and for an omelette, one ice cream, and an apple juice you pay...More

If you want the traditional open faced Danish sandwiches, this is authentic. The service is superb and the charm and ambience is great.

45 minutes for the appetizer to arrive; another 20 for the mains. This does not make for a nice dinner out no matter how good the food. Moreover, the wait staff hurried us into ordering everything as soon as possible, even though the restaurant was...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
