it just really oozes of 'Danish'. Aside from the obvious lunch, you should for example also look at the cutlery and plates. They are from a special Danish cultural place that almost has been forgotten. Cliff-hanger enough? Go for it.

It had been a while since I last visited, but fortunately nothing has changed. Food is still of great quality and the service is very good as well as fast. Highly recommendable if you want some traditional danish food for lunch.

Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and placed at a beautiful window-side table in the corner. The decor was very warm and welcoming. We were told it used to be an old sailors' bar so there were old photos of ships accompanied with other old...More
