They served us a Ribeye that barely looked like one and we were hardly able to cut it with a knife. When we complained we were offered Coffee. But that hardly made up for the bad experience. Only good part was the wine. I will...More

Dear Jens I'am very sad to hear about your bad experience at the restaurant. It surprises me, that you weren't offered a new ribeye? I hope you have a great day. Marianne

Tried this cozy and classy restaurant for lunch for our family lunch. The goal of eating a very good traditional Danish lunch was met with our meal here. Their classic “frokost tallrik” hit all the marks with a plentiful and delicious selection of pickled herring,...More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It was recommended by reception at my hotel for traditional Danish food. They have traditional fare but I asked what they were famous for and got their Danish Beef Sandwich. They have a good selection of beers on tap. I...More

Very bad. We ordered 2 Danish favorites, the dish consists of 4 courses but after more than an hour we were able to eat only two courses and had to leave. The restaurant was practically empty so all this waiting was not justified. At the...More
