“Amazing meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

I don't understand the negative reviews. We had an amazing meal here - incredibly tender chicken and fish, everything fresh. The rhubarb desert was excellent. Friendly service - slightly quirky. An unexpected pleasure that beat some more well-known high-end restaurants in CPH.

“Hearty food with no, or little, frills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

They know how to cook and to serve food. The place is french inspired, but with a danish touch. The food is well presented and, if two or more order the same, is served in large serving bowls: it is a simple and familiar way of serving it and shifts your attention more on the food then the presentation.
And the food, after three visits to the restaurant, has always been nothing less then excellent.
The tables are simple but cozy, the restaurant also sells wines, vegetables and delis at the very entrance, even more highlighitng in this way the "ingredients" oriented business.
Friendly and smiling service adds the ultimate touch. Recommended also for families with children.

“A little out of the way, but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Decided to eat a little out of the way - out of the mainstream and had this placed recommended to us. We were not dissapointed. When we arrived the staff appointed an english speaking waiter that walked us through the options on the menu and helped us select a nice bottle of wine.

Food was a good helping, i had chosen the 3 course set meal and was not disspointed, but couldn't fit in the desert, although it was lovely.

Reasonably priced for Copenhagen and would recommend if you in this area.
