Good relaxed atmosphere

We were 6 persons who like to enjoy a meal here at the end of our yearly Copenhagen excursion. The food is excellent and typically Danish. The waiters are serviceminded in a relaxed atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this sort of olde worlde bar restaurant by chance, but what a find! The landlord is a real character and not long after we arrived some guy turns up to play the honky tonk piano. A real sing along evening. Great food, beer and fun. A little hidden gem.

This is a small but excellent restaurant located just close to Kongens Nytorv Square. The owners are extremely friendly and kind people. Some nights you can have the chance to listen to piano while dining in a very relaxed atmosphere. Cuisine is excellent for quality and taste. One night I had a delicious Gravad Laks ( Salmon with dill) plus... More

It a nice place with a good food. The people is kind and courtesy. You can breath in a touristic place a lively danish atmosphere. The music accompanied our lovely dinner. I suggest to everyone. The price is fair

Located in a building from the 1700s, this is a traditional Danish tavern which serves solid Danish fare. Let's face it -- eating in Copenhagen is expensive -- paying 200 KR per person is considered moderate. For 139 KR per person, we enjoyed a platter of herring, Flæskesteg, Leverpostej, salads, bread, and other delights. It was more than enough, and... More

A place that charges 29 DKK for half a liter of water and has only bottled water in a land with drinkable tap water doesn't deserve more than one star. Plastic waste and greed. The food was nothing special. Maybe if it was half the price, and free water, I'd give it another try, but probably not.

Skindbuksen is on a little side street off of Kongens Nytorv. We stumbled across it while trying to get clear of construction in the area. All the temporary plywood walls made it a bit tricky to find, and since it's a small place slightly below street level, it might not be much more noticeable without the construction chaos. So if...

Not quite Toldbolden but very, very good. Great food, good staff, reasonable prices. If you are in the neighborhood at Lille Kogensgade 4, by all means stop in.

If you want some traditional Danish pub food, then this is the place to come. They offer fish, pork and other danish meals. Very fast service.
