This restaurant serves typical Danish food. The service is home made and the meal is very good. Price also good. Very recommendable.

The food was Ok, I ate a chicken sandwich and my husband a steak. But I thought the price was unfair.

Great service. Ate inside due to rainy weather, although there is outside seating under large umbrellas. Friendly service with English spoken. Lobster soup was terrific. Several beers on tap.

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant. I ordered the entrecôte which was decent (3/5) and my husband ordered the lobster soup, which I sampled and give a 4/5, because it was delicious but it did not have any actual pieces of lobster in it. It isn't very pricey and the atmosphere is nice. The service was quick... More

Stopped by Hereford House with my girl during our walk through Nyhavn with the reason that it looked like a fresh alternative. The tables are pretty tight together but even though that wasn't a problem for us, it seemed to be for the waiters. It took a while to get service and after we'd ordered they were too busy to...

This seemed to be the best value restaurant with a set menu on the tourist strip alongside the canal. It was a great place to sit and watch the world go by but as you would expect it was expensive and service was not good. The lobster soup was tasty and so was the steak and chips but as the... More

We had dinner here in the outdoor section of this restaurant. They cater to tourists and locals alike. Our waiter was actually from Ireland! The food is average, but, like all food in Denmark, expensive.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
