A small menu card, a cosy room, and always good food. What else do you ask for. I love the steaks, but the rest is good, too.

We really enjoyed having a menu with different flavors and ingredients-most reflecting a Cajun/ creole influence. Dishes were well prepared and service was pleasant and helpful. The dining room is attractive with a fairly relaxed atmosphere. Good quality all around.

After a lovely weekend in Copenhagen we decided to go to this restaurant on our last night after a good recommendation from friends we were visiting. What a mistake, this is the worst carribean food I have every had the displeasure of tasting, this food is not a true example of carribean food. The food needs more seasoning to give... More

Got the menu with salmon tatar, a garlic steak and a small brulle-ish thing. It was all both very tasty, well seasoned and well prepared. I'd lov to come back

I went there twice over 8 years ago and loved it. This time I suggested it to 5 colleges and was a bit nervous when the place was empty on arrival (Wednesday night). The menu looked similar to what I remembered and the food was GOOD again. I like this creole mix,,,, with extra chilly for me. Since we where... More

We had the 3 course special and it was excellent. (Try the chorizo prawn salad as a starter). The combination beef and seafood for main course was also lovely. The price was also reasonable

My wife and accidentally went to the House of souls Friday night two weeks ago. It was crowded and for a good reason. We rarely go to the same restaurant twice, but we decided to come back the following Friday. Once again we were not let down. Both the food and the service was superb. We will have to come... More

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.
