“Lovely lunch on a rainy day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

You really need reservations for this elegant traditional restaurant. We were lucky to get a table for lunch on a rainy Tuesday in May. The restaurant is small, a few steps down from the street level, with tables close together, and has a very cosy old-fashioned feel. We are not big eaters and ordered one sandwich plate each but most of the regular business crowd ordered a number of plates, one after another. I ordered a plate with three types of fish, with crayfish salad, salmon and a wonderful cured fish I can't remember the name of. My husband got the straight pickled herring plate and it was not as interesting. We enjoyed talking to the Norwegians sitting next to us who ordered a delicious looking fried flatfish which came with a wonderful sauce. They also let us try a fried bread appetizer that was wonderful. Of course we had a glass with aquavit with the meal! In the end we did not spend too much because we did not order so much food, but the wait staff was so nice to us anyway. Really a wonderful feeling in this place.

“Best smørrebrød in Copenhagen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Superb quality in food. Really the best place for smørrebrød in Copenhagen. Only problem is it is hard to get a table there, so book in advance.

“Best "smorre-brod" / open-sandwich in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Book table in advance! This place is packed, booked well in advanced - for the simple reason, this could be the best open-sandwich restaurant in the world! Yes, the whole world.

Step into a world that was 100 of years ago in Copenhagen. You will instantly feel the atmosphere. This place has history and charm. Spent 5 minutes reading the history on the menu, to get yourself in the right mood.

The food is no less than fantastic, if you want to try a piece of danish food culture. All ingredients are fresh and the best available. Everything is home made - and you can taste the difference.

This is NOMA of Smorrebrod! Also a bit on the high side, when it comes to price - but don't let such detail keep you away. It is worth every penny.

“The best lunch ever in CPH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

The finest Danish traditional lunch I've ever had. Acclaimed to be one of the oldest lunch spots and best, and it didn't disappoint. The service was fantastic, the food fresh, hit and delicious. The Carlsberg cold and the Snaps divine. A must go if you are visiting Copenhagen. Bon Apetit!

“Great Danish Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

This place serves traditional Danish lunch. Definitely worth a visit. Be aware that the price is not in the low end. TRy the Danish speciality "Stjerneskud".
