My friends and I had a dinner here last week. When we entered the restaurant no table was free but in no more than five minutes we have had our seat. We ordered 3 dishes of salmons and vegetables. The servings were big and the fish soft. We have been satisfied of the meal. The waiters have been really really... More

We sat outside and they provided blankets to take the chill of autumn once the sun had set. The food was good, the beer was good, the price average for Copenhagen. The service was fine and we enjoyed it.

Friendly welcome and good food. Seating inside and out but popular so may not get a choice. Food served hot and quickly with friendly waiters who will tell you of local history

Great gastropub serving Danish food. We opted for the good value tasting menu. Stand out dishes were the herring and the pork belly pate with Danish bacon. The service was friendly and efficient. We dined inside but there are just as many tables outside.

I had the steak ; nicely cooked ( med rare ). My wife had Salmon which was perfect. Price was reasonable..... The inside table was perfect and service... More

We booked for our team meal at the World Masters Rowing. We all really enjoyed the food, most had the sharing platter. A great mixture of fish and meat, with cheese to finish. The service was excellent and the restaurant inside is nice and quiet. Tables outside can be noisier and of course they are for smokers.

Expect a wait especially if you are going during dinner hours. From what I could tell there were only 2 servers with roughly 40-50 customers. Definitely be ready to sit and enjoy the scenery. [:

We came here for dinner, the service was nice and relatively quick, portions were big and the food of high quality, but we were a bit disappointed by the fact that they didn't have any salmon left at 8.00 in the evening.

Popped in here after a trip to the National Museum as it is only a short distance. Some Danish colleagues had recommended it. We had had a lovely breakfast round the corner so shared a prawn open sandwich. It was quite delicious and the Puk beer was also good. Prompt service, gets a 4 for the chap at the next... More

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.
