This was the restaurant we chose our first night in Copenhagen and just ended up here as we wandered about the city looking for somewhere to eat dinner. The restaurant was very cute and had plenty of hygge but the price didn't quite line up to the overall food. Though the service was very good and friendly. We ordered four... More

I like this place very much. We ordered only the fish tapas dishes and they were uniformly good. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is cosy. The wine was also very nice and we paid about DKK 500 a head for 3 and had plenty to eat and drink.

El Tapeo is a small cute charming restaurant located close to the Nørreport metro station. The food is actually Spanish (I think the cook is Spanish) so that was a pleasant surprise. The service is pretty relaxed (which is nice but maybe not if you are in a hurry) but unfortunately not super professional. I ordered a tapas mix for... More

Fancied tapas - so a quick google lead us to El Tapeo. Really nice - small and intimate with good background music without being overbearing. Food was great (veggie and non veggie tapas) along with nice wine. Special thanks for the loan of the phone charger as my airline boarding pass was on it!

Two floors of tables. Cosy setting with great atmosphere. We chose set menu and were not disappointed. As a GF person I was given a separate cold selection board which was great, but unfortunately no bread. Howeverever if you know this you could take your own. The hot selection was fab, battered courgette, sliced beef, garlic prawns and the surprise... More

Very cozy and small tapas restaurant, kind service and little tables on the sidewalk. Very good sandwiches and relaxing atmosphere for a fast snack.

We had lunch for two here on Sunday 1 May - Workers Day. We were the only people in the restaurant which was such a shame as this was a real treat for a foodie. Lovely pear and walnut salad, superb charcuterie, lovely chorizo and warm bread served with olive oil. We spoke to the chef and the manager -... More

I had chorizo cooked in red wine that was delicious -- I still... 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.
