Perfect lunch stop situated as central as can be and next door to Magasin Department Store and Hotel D'Angleterre in a small quiet street. Cosy, intimate, few tables and fast happy service and staff and most evenings a piano player to entertain. Open faced sandwiches is a must and this place is famous for it. Just wish they would fry...

We stumbled across this place which from the outside looks like a lovely old traditional pub. The decor inside is fantastic - lots of old paintings: it has a friendly old pub feel about it. We ordered a Smørrebrød 'sharer' dish which was great - a good selection to sample local dishes. There was also a good beer selection and... More

Liked the burger that was highly recommended, food was fine. We (2) got a table on the top of the stairs which was a bit crampy with the neighboring table and small. Wine that I ordered from the map was not available, more expensive wine that I got was good. Service was good, nice guys. Liked the initiative they have... More

We passed by this restaurant and I was intrigued as it looked very authentic. It is run by great, warm and friendly people. The atmosphere inside is great and a lot to look at on the walls which I loved. The food was superb. I would highly recommend visiting them when in Copenhagen. Very fairly priced too.

We stopped by for an early dinner, wanted to try local cheese and they prepare a plate of cheese for us as appetizer. Then we had two great main courses, local dishes, excellent food at reasonable prices! We sat at the bar around 5:30pm and by 7pm the place was getting crowded! The place is very cozy, great old tavern... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at the Skindbuksen on October 5, 2014. We found the prices very reasonable in such an expensive city. The service was excellent and the ambiance superb. There aren't many places where you can eat lunch in a restaurant that opened the same year George Washington was born (1732). We each had a traditional... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed our meal. We had four kinds of smørrebrød- all were delicious. The service was very friendly, kind and patient (older gentleman). The atmosphere of the restaurant was great- intimate with cool artworks. The prices were very reasonable.

The restaurant is full of character and appears not to have changed in decades. The food is from a time before "international" cuisine or fast food (or salad as anything but a garnish) - robust, simple "everyday" dishes. Not for vegetarians. Friendly staff. The place is relatively small and very popular so booking is advised even mid-week.

We came upon this restaurant by chance while walking around Copenhagen. Four of us ate here choosing a variety of main courses from the menu. All of them were excellent and the staff (owners?) were attentive and helpful. A very pleasant surprise for a city centre restaurant.

We didn't set out to go here but as a group of 11 it's very difficult for establishments to accommodate and so we landed on this 'gem' by mistake. The food was just excellent and there was not one bit of it that I found anything short of perfection. The service was also brilliant, we were seen to fast, the... More
