This classic from 1797 is a must when visiting Copenhagen. A cellar always filled with people and chatter, the smørrebrøds are just heavenly. They have a table full of samples in case you aren't able to order your preference with fluent Danish… They also have...More

OK - I am extremely biased ... I have been coming to Gitte Kik since I was 20 years old and am now introducing my children to the wonders of Danish smorrebrod, making them the 4th generation of patrons. I do so because Gitte Kik...More

An interesting traditional smorresbrod restaurant in a cozy cellar, which is inevitably pricey because of it's location, but seems well patronised by locals. I would have thought that the portions would have been a larger given the price - DK 140 = £18 for two...More

I have been a regular patron of Gitte Kik over the last twenty years and they are still my favorite Danish "frokostrestaurant". They have all the classics, their fried marinated herring is particularly memorable, so is their steak tartar, and don't forget their warm steak...More
