Precision is the order of the day here. We were surprised to arrive for the second lunchtime sitting (at 14.14), only to find other diners waiting outside...strange? Then the doors opened and we all walked in to find a perfectly set-up restaurant, with fresh white linen and sparkling cutlery and glasses. You would not have thought that they had already served a restaurant full of people that afternoon. The menu is dizzying! Traditional Danish lunch dishes sit alongside updated versions. The selection of schnapps is huge! We ate two dishes each and could not move afterwards. I suggest you skip breakfast and indulge to the fullest. Plan on sleeping it off in the afternoon. Staff are upbeat, friendly and very professional, and the atmosphere promotes conversation between tables. Altogether the very best lunch restaurant in the capital.

The food is excellent here. If you are in Copenhagen and looking to try traditional danish lunch this is the place to go! Rather expensive though, but worth it! If you´re not driving and are over 18, you should order a snaps and a Carlsberg with you´r meal... just like the danes do :)

Schonneman serves only lunch in a beautifully preserved barroom with large windows that make it bright and pleasant. They serve traditional smorrebrod enjoyed with beer and aquavit, of which they have many including their own. Go VERY hungry; you will not need dinner that evening.
Fantastic bread and even better service. There are two prix-fixe luncheon plates - large and larger - or you can have a variety of sandwiches like herring with curried hard-boiled egg, capers and onion; smoked eel with scrambled eggs and chives; and also non sandwich dishes. The two of us had the smaller of the two luncheon menus (cost: DKK 248) which included herring three ways; pork roast (amazing); and cheese course. We added the dessert of Grandma's Apple Cake (not anything like my Grandma's) which pushed us over the edge. Book in advance as it is a small restaurant.

We went with our Danish Rotary Exchange Student from 18 years ago and his new wife. We ordered the Special Sampler at 375 DKK each. I was initially reluctant as I didn't think I would like Herring. Not only was the Herring outstanding but so was absolutely everything else. Make sure you're hungry when you go, so you will have room for this amazing spread. And you also won't need to worry about having dinner later the same day as you will find yourself satisfied for some time. Add a glass of their Schonneman's ale and some schnapps and this is indeed a very special dining experience; one of the best meals I have ever had. Although it seems pricy, it is not extraordinarily so for Copenhagen. In fact, considering the quality and quantity of the food, the atmosphere of the restaurant, the excellent service, the overall experience, and the memories created, it is a bargain!

Schønnemann's is the top of the pop when it comes to lunch in Copenhagen ( danish traditional lunch that is ). There are some very good options when it comes to traditional danish food in Copenhagen ( such as Told & Snaps and Restaurant Sankt Annæ ) but Schønnemanns just seem to have that little extra. The restaurant was also awarded best lunch restaurant in Denmark 2010 and 2013 so it goes without saying you really need to book ahead ( I would recommend 2-3 weeks ahead ) Would I go again? Yes as soon as possible.
