Location and contact

We're located in the heart of Copenhagen, close to Tivoli and the iconic cinema, Palads. The menu changes regularly as we rely on small local farmers who focus on good quality organic produce. We don´t f**k around with our vegetables and we treat our meat with respect #oldschool. - born as bastards, raised as gentlemen

I just love their well prepared and appetizing Tartar that I will keep coming back to for more. Also one hell of a greasy burger and a nice creme brulee.

I'm very sad about this review but I can't do differently. I can't accept that tap water is considered a soft drink. I spent 50kr each pitcher of tap water. This make the price growing making the meal's cost higher than it's value. Unfortunately this...More

The menù is poor, food is ok but the price is too high for the quality. The unbelievable thing is that we paid 100 dkk (15€) for 2 TAP WATER. I won't definitely come back.More

We plumped for this restaurant because we found the name and restaurant ethos amusing. We sat outside and had great service. The meal was enjoyable and the ingredients were fresh. Fab steak, great/reasonably priced wine. I would thoroughly recommend visiting if you’re in the area!

Recently in Copenhagen and stumbled across this restaurant, not far from the Square Hotel. Everything is made from scratch in site with fresh ingredients. Had a classic burger with caramelised onions and homemade mustard sauce. Side dish included an interesting version of "fries". Waiter services...More
