Nice pub in nice neighborhood

Really nice place and mellow atmosphere. The meal didn't blow me away but it was not bad. I had the white fish and a beer, but the menu looked really good. I would definitely want to come back and try more here. The bartender was the waiter. The bar up front feels like a pub, but the table area... read more

We wondered in here to find something to eat during the lunch period. We found that many of Copenhagen's restaurants were steak houses or burger bars so this was a welcome found. My husband had the three types of herrings and thoroughly enjoyed. I had traditional pork and the crackling was superb.

Lots of traditional Danish dishes, with a huge variety of ways of serving herring. If you're not a fish fan, don't worry - there's more than that on offer. I had the frikadeller - Danish meat balls which are served with rye bread and gherkins. Very nice.

When visiting my grandmother living on gronningen, we walked over to this old world bodega which she explained as 'her little favorite'. Walked into a full but not overcrowded restaurant with old world decor and tons of locals. All i could hear was danish, not a lick of english and I loved it. For those who don't have a danish...

Am a fan of Danish Herring, with some good Snaps on the side. Well, thats the right place. Very nice herring plate, and very nice snaps. Will be back to try some other preparations. Although the waiter looked grumpy, we still enjoyed good efficient service. Yes, relax and take time to respect Danish eating culture. Enjoy.

I ordered Danish's popular herring fish, prepared in three delicious ways; it was served beautifully and ate with bread. My husband ordered another delicious meal as well. The ambiance is perfect!

Waitress was very unhelpful and reluctantly showed us to a table, after first directing us to the bar, saying all the restaurant tables were booked which clearly wasn't true. We waited over 20 minutes and then walked out after being ignored. As we walked down the street the waitress shouted out (in front of customers sitting outside) "You'd be better... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a longtime friend with whom we were getting together. It was the perfect place for a nice dinner and talking over old times. The tables are on various levels which allows privacy for conversations. The food was very good and the staff (most of whom, according to our friend, have been there forever)... More

the restaurant is small, so reservations are recommended. It had an extensive menu with a number of nightly specials. The Danish specialties are close to German. The portions are quite generous. I had delicious roast pork, served with many vegetables and so many potatoes. apparently they do not take

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood 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.
