“Small exquisite plates”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

A friend recommended this place in the old (and still operating) meat packing district. Happy, hip staff and really good smells coming from the kitchen. We chose the dishes for the seafood--which we recognized--and trusted the mysterious ingredients--which we did not recognize--would work out.

They all did--cocktails, appetizers and desserts all fab. A rhubarb and spanish chervil cocktail was mouth-watering. No complaints about the G&Ts. Appetizers of scallops, king crab, and langostine as we've never had them but would gladly have again. Strawberries with smoked buttermilk for dessert. The big guy groused about the small portions relative to the prices, and we got another sphere of home-made bread to sop up the remainder of his smoked egg (which was accompanying the crab legs).

The waiter assured us that the main courses were larger. The rest of us were pleased with the quality/quantity/value ratio, and will go back again if we get the chance!

“Superb meal in a cool location”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Every dish we ordered was superb. Some involved unusual ingredients, and there were interesting manners of preparation. The location is a lot of fun: it is a sort of warehouse-y area which I think may have been the meat-packing district. No evidence of that kind of activity now, but it was fun to walk around. I felt as though I'd stepped out of "regular" Copenhagen.

“Way under expectation”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Location shocking. This was our wedding anniversary and it certainly was a huge mistake. Food was mediocre. How it made top ten places to eat in Copenhagen I will never know. The exterior is like being on an industrial estate, the interior ready for demolition. Food was very average and very expensive. Staff very good, welcoming and professional. Sit outside on deck chairs with a tyre for a table.

“Trendy and Cool with great food”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is a casula hipster location in the new trendy area of meatpacking district. In summertime you can enjoy sunset basking in the sun till you get seated. Food is of high quality and cocktails, rock! Great service too!
