Description: Restaurant PUK is a classic and historic Danish restaurant in the very heart of Copenhagen. It is one of the oldest restaurants in Copenhagen with a history dating back to 1750. Here came the Danish King Christian VII along with his mistress in the late 19th century when they were in town together. You can enjoy all the traditional Danish courses crafted with a blend of respect for tradition and a pride in the art of cooking and the best products from Danish farmers.

“Great meal, good location, but a little on the pricy side”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The food here was just excellent. I had the breaded veal and my husband had the a steak that was surrounded by mashed potatoes that was baked and had an herb butter sauce. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. One note, DO NOT ask for other sauces! Take the food as it comes. Trust me, it is just wonderful.

My one warning is this, it is on the pricy side. The meals start from about $26 USD. It was worth it though. They serve LARGE portions.

“Good place for Danish food”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We took a chance in this one, and were very happy. We had the open sandwiches with herring. Very good. Maybe a bit more brea would have been nice - and probably the waitress would have brought some if we'd asked. I wouldn't bother with the desserts - pretty disappointing for the price. Good value wine.

Other diners had main courses and they looked pretty good (the courses, not the other diners).

We sat outside, but I imagine indoors would be really cosy in he winter.

I would go back.

“Soeren was the bomb "Excellent waiter" and Fantastic Food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Puk is a great place in Copenhagen. We travel for a living and think that a good meal is worth the price, especially if it comes with great service. Soeren is professional, friendly, accommodating, and most importantly customer focused. Copenhagen is expensive and sometimes the meals are not worth the price, but Puk always delivers great food in a nice setting. In the summer, we sat outdoors in 3 different occasions and sampled the breaded veal cutlet, the Filet of beef baked with mashed potatoes on a piece of solid oak served with herb-butter, the salmon prepared the same way, Steak served with salad, fries and bearnaise sauce, the pork and everything was consistently great. For beer, Soeren recommended the Danish Red no. 16 and we love it. Sorry, we will not be able to return until next Spring.

“Authentic Danish and delicious”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Tried here having read previous reviews., we weren't disappointed. Choose the evening platter for the whole table. great value at £20 a head. It gave us the chance to try dishes which we wouldn't normally have chosen.
The herring in particular was marvellous, in fact all the fish dishes were divine.
Service was prompt and friendly. No hesitation in recommending to other visitors.
