My wife and I went last night and what a wonderful place it is. Great service, excellent food and nice and cozy atmosphere. We will definitely be coming back. The jerk chicken was the best chicken I have ever had in a restaurant. Spicy, savory, moist, tender, and wonderfully accompanied by the mango salsa. I can highly recommend it.

Starting from a warm welcome you really feel something special is in the air in this place. Sure, the place does not look like 5* fancy restaurant but there is the soul. This place is highly recommended for lovers of spiced food lovers but not only meaning hot hot. The restaurant cooks are able to do magic with whole array... More

Great wines for the different courses as well, and had no expectations to that, but it was spot on. The service was... More

We booked a table online for Sunday evening. When we arrived, we found out to be the only ones there. Food was excellent (tuna, beef) and service was very friendly. We weren't rushed at any point, even though their must have thought about getting to go home once we leave. I most certainly will go there again!

I first tried the restaurant four or five years ago when I travelled frequently to Copenhagen. I have come there infrequently since then when my travel brings me to Copenhagen. The menu has changed over time, but I tend to stick with the beef. Which is very, very good. Was there two weeks ago with some colleagues. The food was... More

Went to House of Souls with two good friends a Fridays evening. The food is very tasty New Orleans stylish. We all went for their local version of Surf'n'Turf - good stuff. What however takes it to a 4-star rating was the cosy, fresh waiter who handled/entertained us very well through out the evening.

Excellent food in West Indian-sized portions; jerk chicken was extremely spicy...make sure you factor in the service time: very much 'soon come'

In the fa north of Europe you would not expect spicy caribean food, but something that is customed to northern europeans. Nvertheless chef-cook in Souls dare to make dishes spicy, even hot all according to the original recipe from his own Barbados. Interestingly you think that you will taste sharpeness and nothing else, but all ingredients are wel tasteable and... More
