We had reservations for outside where the restaurant provides heaters and blankets. On arrival it was raining so we opted for inside which is cozy and charming.
The service was impeccable, and they were happy to provide an English menu and answer questions.
If you want red wine by the glass the only option is Cabernet Sauvignon; it was a generous pour, hearty, smooth and went well with our entrees.
We had the pork tenderloin (with boiled potatoes, onions and gravy) and the stew. Both were delicious, nice sized portions and served good and hot. A lovely aroma surrounded our table when the waiter set down our food.
For dessert we shared the pancakes, rolled up and served with ice cream and a milk chocolate sauce. A great ending to a wonderful dinner.
We learned from our hotel receptionist Danes rarely eat out in restaurants as they are indeed very expensive. We found this restaurant to be well-priced for the food.
It is worth a return visit the next time we are in Copenhagen. It is off the busy, beaten path and may be a bit difficult to find, but persevere and you will be happy you did.

This restaurant was next door to our hotel. It was very good. We had a chance to try different preparations of herring, I had a stew with pork and sausage. Everything was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to people who are a little adventurous with food. Sitting outside was nice too!

Ate here a few days ago. My wife had salmon and I had the stew. Both dishes were fantastic and the service was very good. It has a nice front seating area that is quiet and secluded enough for a private or romantic meal.

Food was reasonably priced (for Copenhagen).

Here in a discrete side street in an earlier "red light district", you will find this old lunch restaurant with well made typical Danish food for lunch.
There is a very cosy atmosphere indoor as outdoor, and the staff is professional.
It is located near Tivoli and the central station of Copenhagen.
