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

Before going to the Gamle Scene we went in for dinner and were the first ones there around 6:00 pm. The owner was very friendly and nice and was in the mood for fun because there was a soccer game against Sweden and he was all dressed in Red :-) I read about being a very old Restaurant and the...

Located in a 1728 building off Kongens Nytorv this restaurant specialises in local food. We had a shared Danish Platter which included pickled herring, chicken, pork, fish, cheese, capers and rye bread. A good introduction to local dishes.

We stumbled upon this place soon after arriving in Copenhagen. We were avoiding the rain and decided to pop in for a feed. My partner ordered a burger and I ordered the liver. When the food came out, we were shocked at how big the servings were. It looked great and more importantly it tasted great. The service was good... More

We went on recommendation from friendly locals, and were not disappointed. The food is honest-to-goodness rather than spectacular, but in an expensive city it stands out as a half-decent place to go for value. The staff were friendly as was the atmosphere, chock full of happy locals.

We where recommended this restaurant by friends. The restaurant is in the same building as Hvits Vinstue, a favourite pub in Copenhagen when visiting this lovely town. Skindbuksen is full of atmosphere and you don’t expect a gourmet meal. Our food was average, nothing to brag about. The waiters was in good spirit and had a good time with the... More

This place has been a pleasant surprise. Food was very good: i had soup of the day which was cream of asparagus and a steak as a main course. Both were very tasty and reasonable in size. The great thing of this place is that during your meal you can socialize with the owners and other guests. Be ready that... More

Having lived in Denmark in the past we were seeking a good down to earth smørrebrød lunch and were not disappointed. Located behind the bar Hviids Vinstue on Kongens Nytorv, we were concerned it may be a tourist trap, however apart from one Swede, we appeared to be the only tourists! Thursday lunchtime and lucky we had a reservation. The... More

We ate traditional Danish dishes which were rich and plenty. The ambiance was homely and the staff were really friendly. The pricing is fair. Recommended restaurant!
