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.

Just returned from a long weekend away to Copenhagen with my wife and had to post a comment about Puk which we visited on the 10th August.
The restaurant lived up to all the positive comments from other Trip Advisor posters and I can't praise or recommend it enough.
On arrival we were greeted by Soren with a warm welcome that we immediately felt at ease in a very busy restaurant (I advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment. I e-mailed Puk a few weeks before we came and received confirmation from Soren the very same day).The place was buzzing with a great atmosphere.
He helped us go through the various options on the menu and we opted for the Crown herring with Aquavit and sour cream followed by the roast pork, mash and red cabbage - both were excellently prepared and delicious. Yes the portions were great too - you won’t go away hungry.
To accompany our meal we had a really good selection of local beers to choose from (Soren went through the styles of each beer which made our choices easier) and we opted for the Refsvindinge draught red beer and Elephant which was surprisingly light in flavour considering it was over 7% in strength but went well with the herring.
The service from Soren from beginning to end was attentive and very helpful with added humour – he was a really great host and added to our evening.
To finish off we decided to have a glass of Aquavit (Danish schnapps) but there were numerous styles to choose from and having opted for a Danish style Soren brought us another style (Swedish) to try ‘on the house’ which was a really nice touch from him. We even ended up exchanging recipes – his deliciously tender pork for our Christmas turkey over white wine.
Of the three restaurants we dined at during our stay in Copenhagen(first two were in the Nyhaven) Puk was definitely the winner. Not only was the food far better and more plentiful but far cheaper (Puk was 600 kroner whereas the other two were between 880 and 950 which was a big difference) The two on the Nyhaven felt touristy whilst Puk had a more homely feel.
Puk is a lovely restaurant and really is great value for money in an expensive city.

We had a superb lunch here. Not sure why it isn't higher up in the ratings as it was excellent homely food in vast quantities. We had one huge platter, felt full, and then another arrived! Which we managed to squeeze in. All delicious and very much worth a visit! Very cosy atmosphere too.

We had booked a table for five, and that was probably needed as the restaurant was quite crowded even on a Monday night. The service was very friendly yet professional, and even though the restaurant was almost full for most of our meal we never had to wait for service. The menu is quite traditional, and the food both looked and tasted great. As mentioned by several others the portions are quite large so it might be a good idea to avoid or share the starters. Even though there are cheaper options, I will definately claim that this place gives excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

We were recommended to try Puk by the Marriott hotel in Copenhagen. It was a bit ore pricy than other restaurants in the area, but worth the experience. The food was beautifully prepared and professionally presented, and the portions are definitely large enough to fill you up. Be sure to take time to observe the habits of the locals and enjoy the cobblestone streets around the restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge. It has traditional Danish food, which sometimes reminds me of German food. We ate outside. My husband had salmon on an oak plank which he really enjoyed. I had sliced, roast pork with red cabbage and potatoes. The portions are huge so we didn't order an appitizer. We ordered an inexpensive bottle of chardonnay and the total was $126 for two. All the food in Denmark (and Sweden) is very expensive for what you get. The food was good but not anything special. Service was very good.
