Eat indoors or out, as either setting is fine. The food is genuine Danish and quite good: herring, fish cakes, salads, everything was fresh and tasty. Staff very helpful in offering choices and ideas for our non-danish party of six.

When I looked for restaurants in Copenhagen for our 'three generations' visit, Puk stood out as offering outstanding Danish food at a (relatively) reasonable price. Happily we were able to fit in an al fresco lunch here a few days ago. The food was staggeringly...More

You can enjoy all the traditional Danish courses crafted with a blend of respect for tradition and a pride in the art of cooking and the best products from Danish farmers.
