Two floors of tables. Cosy setting with great atmosphere. We chose set menu and were not disappointed. As a GF person I was given a separate cold selection board which was great, but unfortunately no bread. Howeverever if you know this you could take your own. The hot selection was fab, battered courgette, sliced beef, garlic prawns and the surprise... More

Very cozy and small tapas restaurant, kind service and little tables on the sidewalk. Very good sandwiches and relaxing atmosphere for a fast snack.

Lovely pear and walnut salad, superb charcuterie, lovely chorizo and warm bread served with olive oil. We spoke to the chef and the manager -... More

Went on a Saturday night at 9pm. Weren't offers a wine menu before ordering our food. Food arrived cold and clearly had been sitting around under a hot lamp for much of the evening. Waitress stated it was 'freshly cooked' but clearly that meant it had been freshly cooked a couple of hours before. We were taken there by our... More

This little gem is located in a small street about 5-10 minute walk from the norreport station precinct and we came on it by accident on a short stroll from our apartment. On a busy Saturday night they found us a table and it took about 15 minutes to rake our order and another half hour for the food to... More

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.
