If this place was in London it would be a proper ole knees up. Cute little bar come restaurant with the oddest art all over the place. Welcoming and the food is danish fayre. Hearty meat, potatoes, beetroot and pickles washed down with beer. What's not to like.

After reading the reviews on this place I was excited and decided to eat here. When I got seated it started already with the lady saying I couldn't get tapwater because she wasn't allowed.. When she noticed that people around me had it too she gave it to me anyway... I ordered a soup (10 euros, must be really good... More

I must admit that the atmosphere of this pub is what draws you in. The place is decorated with paintings and frames of famous Danes and artists and musicians. There's live music in the form of a pianist and an outrageous opera singer who was quite entertaining at times and laughable at other times. The food was overpriced, cold and... More

The salmon was amazing. The ice cream dessert was even better. The resturaunt had a wonderful, old ambiance and the live piano player added heaps to the positive experience. We would love to go back again! It was also very close to the metro station.

When you hear sandwich you think of something small on a piece of bread; but here the toppings cover a whole plate and taste delicious.

Small restaurant but popular serving good hearty food at reasonable prices. Artwork is by various artists who used to live locally or who frequented the restaurant. If you want to eat local dishes supporting a small business rather than a chain this is the place to come. Service is good so long as you get in before a large crowd!

We went here on a Friday and were lucky enough to get the last table. From a short menu we chose Danish style hamburger and liver. They were excellent, good sized helpings and brought out quickly. The interior of the pub is amazing, the walls and even the ceilings covered with art and pictures of - I presume - Danish... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
