Really good service and a genuine atmosphere

I was at this place together with a colleauge for a late lunch. We are not from Denmark - and certainly not very familiar with the smörebröd concept as they serve it. The food was superb along with a good service and some suggestions for beers etc. The price was ok - defientely not expensive.

Whilst walking around in the freezing cold in Copenhagen we stumbled upon Restaurant Amalie. The restaurant was busy but they found us a table within 5 minutes. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was good, we had a light lunch, I had brisket with grated horseradish and piccalilli and my wife had meatballs with beetroot and pickles.

Danishes sandwiches when they are best ! Restrict yourself to one ! Portions are big and filling. Try their beers from Fur and maybe try a small schnapps. In the summer you can sit outside. Otherwise the indoors will give you an idea of old times in Copenhagen. Service is friendly and quick

We loved everything about Amalie including the cosy interior, friendly service and first rate food. Excellent herring with one of a wide range of schnapps, and excellent pork tenderloin and roast beef too. Great beers as well. Highly recommended – be sure to reserve a table.

You need to reserve if you want to have lunch here, but its well worth it if you want to try really authentic Danish smorrebrod. There is a lunch menu for 259 DKK that inlcudes 5 couses: herring (2 kinds), gravad laks, fried plaice, pork loin fried with onions and 3 kinds of Danish cheese. I had a large beer... More

Excellent selection of danish sandwiches and the lunch menu for DKK 285 is just fantastic. The curry herring, mustard herring and the entrecote and the creme brule just fantastic - you dont need a dinner. The section of aquavit is the best in copenhagen. Ask for 3cl easy ones and yu get the best also of Swedish and Norwegian aquavit.... More

We went here around noon on a saturday and had a truly proper danish experince. Danish "sandwiches" are known to be amazing, and at Amalies they truly are. I had one with liver pate and one which I cannot remember, but it all tasted great. Be sure to have beer and aquavitt with your sandwich.

Becoming a rarity in trendy Copenhagen; this restaurant has changed management and ownership about two years ago but has retained its charm and dedication to high quality Danish food. The owner, the chef and the staff know their job well and are consistent in their offer. Ask to for their recommendation of schnapps with your food.
