My wife, daughter and I dined at Puk following a cruise from the port of Copenhagen. We had tried to eat here before our cruise but we were too late to get a reservation, so I booked this reservation online a few days in advance. We had read that Puk served an "Evening Platte" of Danish fare for a minimum... More

A classic restaurant by the square "Vandkunsten " in the central Copenhagen. Best in the summer in nice weather when you can sit outside. It was very crowded when we arrived so we had to wait for service. But when the staff had time for us everything was very nice. The fried fish with fresh prawns was fantastic.

A yummie dinner platter meal. We were served a fish plate and a pork plate. I particularly like the herring. Delicious

We arrived early on a Wednesday night and after waiting a bit for a host, eventually took a seat since there were plenty of tables. We were chastised for not having a reservation and when we asked to move tables since ours was broken, they denied it since the other tables were reserved. Food was alright but service ruined the...

Walked around in circles trying to find this place and very glad we continued. Took an 18 month with us and even with out high chairs she could sit on a bench right next to us and ate the best meal she has had this whole trip. Staff is really accommodating with kids. The pork and pickled cabbage was excellent,... More

This was absolutely worth it. We made reservations and were quickly seated. The service was very friendly. They originally made a mistake with the order but corrected it quickly and gave us drinks on the house to compensate. Would definitely recommend the food- we had the salmon and the Danish steak on a plank- really fantastic. Fun old Danish ambiance... More

Very friendly staff did their best to accommodate us despite not having more tables available. The food was amazing. Best salmon I have ever had. My boyfriend ordered the pork and he said it was just amazing. Well worth the price! Would go again for sure.

Really awful service here...the waiter was even joking about how slow the service was! Food was average - large simple meals (eg steak and mash; veal schnitzel, gravy, peas and potatoes) which tasted ok. Good selection of beer and wine. 500Kr for 2 main meals and 2 beers. Wouldn't bother!

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.
