If you are looking for an authentic Copenhagen restaurant this is the place. Not hard to find but out of the way. The food was delicious, but don't ask for a salad. They don't have them and don't like being asked. Waitstaff was fun and attentive. Established in 1787 this is a don't miss restaurant... read more

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

The place is nice, but it seems that unless you are a Movie Star or a very well known entertainer, the service realy sucks. Had a business dinner and the waitress could not really care if we wanted anything. Behind us was a group of actors and they got all the attention. We got out meal, which was OK, not... More

We tried twice to have dinner here and finally we decided to book (in any case booking is recommended only during the weekend). The place is very characteristic and makes you feel immediately at ease. We had the shrimps from Greenland and the smoked salmon as started and then the todbodean fish as main course. All was absolutely fresh and... More

Great and unique decor. Staff very friendly and helped us select typical copenhagen sandwiches. Food itself was tasty and just outstanding. Perfect place to visit and have a beer as well after a long walk

Visited early Feb 2015 with clients and colleagues. Far from Michelin type experimental food in a sterile environment, Toldbod Bodega offers healthy, traditional and amazingly well prepared food! Taste wise worthy of Michelin stars. The restaurant is cluttered with tiffany lamps, pictures of former kings and royalties and misc riff raff creating a very cosy atmosphere. The waiters are not...
