“Unique atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

A friend who lives in Copenhagen took us to Bankerat, assuring us the prices were reasonable and the food was great. He was right! I don't think he warned us about the decor though, which was off the wall, Goth and surreal. There are stuffed animal sculptures, they're wearing people clothes. There are gargoyle type statues on the window ledges and dolls' heads with lightbulbs in them hanging over the tables in the back room which has a "cracked" mirror wall. It's a bit surreal but very cool, too! (Gents, apparently the facilities are um... unique, so i'm told!).

The staff is friendly, there is an English menu, The menu isn't large but there are some interesting varieties on it. They also do brunch/breakfast from 9:30 a.m. which we had on Sunday morning to rave reviews. The prices are reasonable for Copenhagen standards and the place seems to be popular with locals. We made it there twice, one evening and for one brunch and the only reason we didn't get in the next time we tried is that it was very busy on a Friday evening and the place was full! Definitely recommended!

It's only a couple of blocks from Norreport station towards the Lakes,on the corner of Nansensgade. Go down Vendersgade from the station and turn left for a block.
