We came here for lunch and absolutely loved it. It had very good traditional local dishes. I would recommend the fried herring. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxing. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a local restaurant with good food and decent prices in the vicinity of Nyhaven.

Lying in a basement with small rooms this place is really tight and tou have good times with other guests. Tasty smörrebröd, herring and other fish dishes with a fantastic variety of schnaps to choose from! A true scandinavian lunch for great value!

This is "the classics done right" - i.e. good Danish "smørrebrød" (open sandwiches on rye-bread). Highly recommended to each classic Danish food.

This is a cosy restaurant with lots of ambience and is well worth seeking out. It is situated on a fairly quiet street between the Amalienborg Palace and Nyhavn and provides a welcome relief from the bustling and pricey tourist traps of Nyhavn harbour. It just does lunches and opened from 11.30 to 16.00 when we were there. The food... More

Very quaint and cosy little restaurant very close to Amalienborg. The waitress was very friendly taking our soppy raincoats and putting them somewhere to dry. We reserved ahead by sending them an email and were glad we did as it did fill up. The food was very tasty, although quite rich and filling - it tasted like proper home cooking.... More

Great place for lunch after watching the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace, one block away. Wonderful selection of authentic Danish food at very fair prices.

A charming old place, where we had a nice little lunch. Quiet and filled with old Danish pieces, a sense of history. Very attentive folks. Danish tidbits and aquavit, and a great beer. Our little lunch, away from the bustle of Nyhaven.

Came across this place by accident while walking towards the areas with more restaurants. This place only does the open sandwiches which were really tasty. The bread was really filling and the topping choices were very vast. Also a reasonable price. Overall a very good experience.
