Hate giving bad reviews but wanted to warn others. Extremely poor service, terrible food, and an uncomfortable atmosphere, yet expensive.

Fortunate to have visited on a Thursday and it was barely filled. Due to a smaller crowd, the attention was superb. Good feedback on a 'lobster starter' and i enjoyed the steak dish which was recommended to be medium rare. Had seen negative reviews which i hope wont deter you for your 1st visit. Enjoy!

My colleague had here a great eat experience 7 years ago and decided to have our company dinner here. Now I share his experience, the Cajun style signature steak is on the menu for 27 years.. And I'm sure I can share it with my grandchildren in 10 year time!

Went here on friday night without reservation on a date - no problem with many tables free. The place is right in the middle of Copenhagens "mind field" of entertainment and the restaurant also owns the beer-bar below which shines through somehow at the place is fairly noisy. The decor/ambience is....ok but with many flaws and not as cozy for... More

I was here for dinner on February 23rd. The restaurant is located right in the city center. Really enjoyed the grilled tuna and the blackened cat fish dishes. As starters we shared a crab cake and a nice plate of carpaccio. We were very happy of this place and food...hope to go back again next time in the area.

Eating here makes for a fantastic night out whilst in Copenhagen. The food is delicious, plentiful, and has a decent vegetarian choice- something I often struggle with in Copenhagen. Staff are friendly and helpful, we had great advice regarding which wine to choose and we were not disappointed. The only thing to be mindful is- make sure you arrive suitably... More

The restauarant only had a few guests on that workday evening. The service was attentive and friendly. The main course the jambalaya was big, so no need to starter, and very tasteful. Highly recommend that. The beef main dish was a bit on the small size and with a starter and dessert. It would be perfect.

A small menu card, a cosy room, and always good food. What else do you ask for. I love the steaks, but the rest is good, too.

We really enjoyed having a menu with different flavors and ingredients-most reflecting a Cajun/ creole influence. Dishes were well prepared and service was pleasant and helpful. The dining room is attractive with a fairly relaxed atmosphere. Good quality all around.

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.
