Decent Spanish cuisine

Yeah...it's okay but nothing spectacular. I have eaten there once and had take out once. It was what I expected for the price. Lots of little tapas dishes.

Went on a Saturday night at 9pm. Weren't offers a wine menu before ordering our food. Food arrived cold and clearly had been sitting around under a hot lamp for much of the evening. Waitress stated it was 'freshly cooked' but clearly that meant it had been freshly cooked a couple of hours before. We were taken there by our... More

This little gem is located in a small street about 5-10 minute walk from the norreport station precinct and we came on it by accident on a short stroll from our apartment. On a busy Saturday night they found us a table and it took about 15 minutes to rake our order and another half hour for the food to... More

We were hungry and cold and they were advertising soup. It was a small bowl of fresh spicy pumpkin soup. Gorgeous. Just what I needed.

El Tapeo is located in one of the small streets near Kultorvet. The place has all the ingredients to become a cosy Spanish haven. The interior is quite cosy and Spanish food can be a dream and yet they let you a little bit down. We were there a late afternoon and having walked by many times we decided to... More

This place has some good and some bad points. The good ones; nice atmosphere, nice wine and some delicious tapas. But the service is very slow and it's expensive for what it offers. Also the tapas were very salty.

Mind you, we ordered a pretty standard combination platter so I can't say anything about the menu besides that, but what we got was very good. The chorizo was especially excellent, and a great atmosphere all around. A little on the expensive side, but not the worst by far.

This little restaurant is tucked away in a small street close to Norreport train/metro station and the Round Tower. We went because it was just down the road from our apartment. What a little find! We had the chef's selection because it seemed to be the best value (food and meals in Copenhagen are generally very expensive and this was... More

Can't even describe what they served us. The Paella (the smallest portion I have ever seen) had a weird color, weird taste, watery... First time in my life I sent a dish back saying I can't eat this ! The tapas were also difficult to eat, burnt and weird combinations. Nothing spanish in these dishes and nothing good !

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.
