“Surprising”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I ate here twice and found that, despite there being no vegetarian options on the menu, the head waiter was au fait with what was required and negotiated a colourful and sustaining stir-fry from the kitchen. This came with a potato dish and mushroom sauce. The second time I ate there there was much less imagination and the sauce contained fish. I was not told about this until it was too late, so I was less than happy at the deception. Surroundings like an English pub and good local beer on sale but very expensive by Scottish standards. Try the delicious local tap water (economical Scottish money-saving tip...) Young waitresses very cheery and attentive. Head waiter looked tired? Vegetarians: try the pizza place round the corner - terrific value and filling.

“Big meals , pub type of atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I had shrimps, they were ok, not surprising but others had lamb which was a better choice here. Hamburgers are huge so are ribs plates. French fries are good!

“For beerlovers and a solid meal”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Godthaab Bryghus is not exactly located scenic, but has a wide range of food to chose from, and often vary their menu, although not according to seasons for some reason.

If you like beer, this is where you should taste Greenlandic beer in Nuuk, brewed in a micro-brewery locally - perhaps start you night of pubcraw or visiting clubs here.

The atmosphere's a bit dimmed lighting, yellow walls and a funny mix of maritim decor and something that looks a bit like what greenlanders might have thought a western saloon would look like . Also a bit run-down as the establishment is used for the bar-scene on evenings in the weekend where there's live-music and lots of action - but it's comfy and the waiters are usually attentive and sweet.

As a local I love coming here and chatting with the waiters, hanging out at the bar when aiting for my meal, and I recommend their seafood, their steaks and their plain, trustee nachos. ;)

Not the wildest thing to visit, but definitely one of the more cozy.
Unless you come late in the weekends, then the party starts at around twelve o'clock.

Also; no vegetarian options.

“Average, but good”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Local brewery's restaurant. The beer is nice and the menu diverse. Go for the beer-dishes that are heavy and suited for the large glases of beer. However, keep the beer prices in Greenland in mind:-)

“No vegetarian options”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

One of the worst heavy menus one could imagine in 2012. A s a vegetarian I asked to have chicken salad without the chicken, and they served a bowl of, basically, lettuce greens drowned in a white dressing. Knowing this in advance I have tried to ask for olive oil and vinegar on the side instead, only to find the waiter look utterly confounded. It is not 2012. It is 1950.
