“Best smørrebrød in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

This is an oldfashioned Danish pub/bar (hence the name Værtshuset). When you enter, there is a bar desk, and a few tables only for the regular beer drinkers. The next room (and upstairs) is the seating area for dining guests. In the summer time, you can dine outside. There is a private dining room upstairs for groups. Reservations recommended.
This place is very informal, and service is polite but, again, informal.
I have had lunch here many times, and dinner a few. They serve all the traditional Danish dishes for lunch, such as herring (various styles), plaice with remoulade, steak a la parisienne, pork roast with crispy rind and red cabbage, roastbeef, all on rye bread, but also dishes such as shrimps on white bread, cheese etc.
Everything is homemade, the plaice is fresh, the remoulade is made in the kitchen, and so on.
I had a signature dish called "Angel's Kiss", which is butterfried and breaded plaice, served with trout eggs ("caviar"), asparagus, shrimps and mayo, on rye bread, while my co-diner had the steak a la parisienne with the traditional garnish. Both excellent.
Neighbor table (two retired doctors), had the plaice with remoulade, and the pork roast, which also looked very good!
Dishes go for DKK75-95, and you can easily have two each for lunch.

This restaurant is located in a posh area just north of Copenhagen (in Hellerup). Many embassies in the area.
