“Wonderful Danish lunch”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Having lived in Denmark in the past we were seeking a good down to earth smørrebrød lunch and were not disappointed. Located behind the bar Hviids Vinstue on Kongens Nytorv, we were concerned it may be a tourist trap, however apart from one Swede, we appeared to be the only tourists! Thursday lunchtime and lucky we had a reservation. The portions were large, more herring than would fit on the bread, a large cholestrol-threatening slab of leverpostej for the Dyrlægens natmad, the fish fillet and roast beef sandwiches were also very good sizes. A couple of beers and aquavits and the whole lot came out less than dkk500. Great ambience and great service in the restaurant which is a couple of hundred years old. Will visit next time in town

“Excellent traditional restaurant!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We ate traditional Danish dishes which were rich and plenty. The ambiance was homely and the staff were really friendly. The pricing is fair.
Recommended restaurant!

I was recently Nyhavn area and I chosed this very nice and typical restaurant.

The food and drinks were excellent. the people very friendly, taking into consideration also the good location in the centre of the beautiful Copenhagen, Skindbuksen restaurant it is a real point of reference.

“Tasty Danish Smørrebrød!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

My husband and I found this place wandering around the streets behind Stroget. The yellow exterior caught my eye then the fact the restaurant was full caught my eye.

We went in and were seated straight away at the last table they had available. We ordered the Smørrebrød. I ordered the roast pork one and my husband ordered the smoked salmon one. Both were absolutely delicious and incredibly fresh tasting, and the crackling that came with my pork was to die for. Very reasonable for Copenhagen prices too.

The interior is old and very cozy with ample character. Will definitely re-visit next time I'm in Copenhagen.
