my wife & I were staying the neighbourhhood and discovered this little restaurant. It's fairly small and is a bit of a mix between restaurant & wine bar, in that the lighting is dim. It's obviously very popular with the locals, as all the tables were fully booked (take note - get in touch if there's a few of you) - but they do have a tapas type bar service, so they can take about 15 people sitting on bar stools.

Menu is simple, I think maybe 3 or 4 choices. Dish of the day was a seafood tapas selection, with the other main course veal. There's a fantastic selection of wines, & the waiters certainly seemed to know their stuff - and extremely friendly.

Copenhagen is expensive to eat out, but I think this restaurant is fairly good. Meals for 2 came to DK275 (EUR38) with drinks around DK50 each (beer, G&T)

My husband found this eatery in the Vesterbro neighborhood, which was a 15 minute walk from our hotel near Tivoli. I'm so happy we stopped here for our first meal in Copenhagen! The restaurant's aesthetic and atmosphere is right up our alley, plus the food was tasty, presented in fresh combinations. Falernum's menu changes daily, the specials written on a chalk board. We opted for the tapas platter (generous portions!), Ostetallerken (cheese plate) and a bottle of white wine. The bottomless bread basket of homemade bread was a nice bonus. Friendly, hospitable service and a wonderful place to mix in with the locals.
