“...not bad for a club sandwich!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

It was our last afternoon in Copenhagen and we wanted to eat bacon! =)

We passed this place and the club sandwich was cheaper than the other restaurants so we sat down.

It wasn't too busy being a Monday afternoon and not too many tourists around - but it took a while for the waitress to bring a menu/take our order.

We braved the cold to sit outside - I love the blankets they provide here! Great view of the canal and a brilliant opportunity to people watch!

The club sandwich was very good and came with chips, salad and Danish remoulade.

The place overall isn't bad and if you're passing - give it a try!

“OK for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were hungy and came in for a late lunch. The herring buffet was finished, but I was still offered a selection of herring on a plate. My girlfriend seemed to be enjoying a chicken sandwich. The atmosphere was good.

“Absolute disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Went there for dinner with a group of friends and will never go again. Our food came at random times (within a range of 20min) and half of it came in cold. Actual quality of the food was ok but the cooking was terrible. Waiters were very inattentive in fact to such an extent that we had to go into the kitchen at the end just to pay the bill. Awful place and obviously overpriced given the location but I could accept that had the food and service just been average but iut wasn't. Shocking you can run a place like this.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

During our stay in Copenhagen we enjoyede two times the buffet. Everytime again small portions. When the manager herad about the reson from our stay he presented us free coffee (he even went to a collegue nearbij for the cappucino my wife wanted to drink) and free dessert with creme brulle and different cakes. A very enjouwable place we like to recommend to you!!

“Pretty Good Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I was in Copenhagen with a colleague who was staying near restaurant row on Nyhavn. When walking to his hotel to meet him, I passed this place and it looked pretty good on a rather cold, rainy early summer evening. We did not know it on entering but it turned out to be a buffet with some salad items and grilled meats. The food was actually pretty good. The restaurant itself was a little small but the atmosphere was not bad. We were able to carry on a good business conversation. The prices were a bit expensive but typical of Copenhagen. I would not hesitate to recommend this place for someone interested in grilled meats.
