For those who want a very cosy and in the same time premium dinner experience, this restaurant is the perfect choice. Very elegant atmosphere while the stuff is friendly and accompany the high quality of the cooking. Surely, a must do in this beautiful and...romantic city!More

Well, I feel like I have to write a review, because my experience wasn’t like all the pretty stars. Yeah, it’s a decorative place and the waiters were truly nice, but the food... *fine* carpaccio starter, nothing special. I only ate half of the risotto,...it was just boring. Dessert, nothing special. I’m confused how all the other reviews can be so positive, 3 stars for good service, the food wasn’t at all impressive, sorry.More

I dont know why i didnt write a review earlier. I visited this restaurant alone when I wad traveling there last year this time. Reserved online and the waiters gave me a warm welcome. The darkness made me comfortable to dine alone. And I got...a window seat! The duck confit of this restuarant is still the best of any I have had , including one in Paris which made me queue outside in the cold for over 2 hours! I am still missing the duck confit of this restaurant so much after having it a year later.... The meat was tender and the skin was crispy and easy to break that took me no effort to eat but to appreciate all the flavour, the texture. Oomuoi ~ perfection~More

What a revelation this place is. Great service. Great food. Great ambiance. I had the steak and my partner had the risotto. Both were amazing. The waiting staff were very attentive, and not expensive.

After failing to get a table, when walking in without a reservation on a Friday evening, we made reservation for our last evening in Copenhagen and thank god it worked. What a shame it would have been, if we had missed the oppurtunity to visit...this place. Sharing mussels and goat cheese as starters really were a total joy, and don't miss the flank steak. Also the portions were way bigger than we expected at that price. On top of all that the service was very friendly.More

It's quite a casual place, so don't think there'll be an issue with well-behaved kids :)
