This restaurant was extremely packed when we visited it on our final day in Copenhagen (cold day in January!). The restaurant has won many awards and is highly recommended commended in guidebooks however we were slightly disappointed. We had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs as well as the pork. The food was nice but nothing special. We also felt... More

"Restaurant Schønneman" is the correct spelling. Really the title says it all. This is the best restaurant I have been to in all of Denmark thus far! I have been here many times over the past 23 years. The menu has traditional food as well as some other specials, and one of my favorites is the steak tartare! Great local... More

First of all: if you eat the signature 3 course menu for 248DKK and don't drink anything then this place is a bargain. The food is of good quality (nothing outstanding though) and the service is not bad either. It just certainly isn't as good as the reviews state here. I arrived alone which might have been the reason I... More

We had by far the best traditional danish lunch in this quickly place. The ambience was wonderful, all cutlery and porcelain was by Copenhagen royal company which for me added to the whole experience. Loved herring and seafood served, the herring was so good I am still thinking about it months later. I will most definitely come back!

Well a good question - I have over the years visited many of them and if you are looking for the traditional Danish open faced sandwich selection in the "authentic" environment this is the place to go ! Aside from being one or perhaps the oldest lunch restaurant in Copenhagen they take great pride in both the execution of the... More

Went last week without reservation, waited at 11.30 when the restaurant opens, and was told that they had been booked up for weeks in advance. Not a chance, not even for a single luncher.

Love this place! It's a classic restaurant in Copenhagen, specialising in open sandwiches. The menu is traditional and delicious - with fish and seafood, as well as meat. The waiters are on hand with recommendations and are wonderful at matching your food choice with schnapps. The place itself is cosy and comfortable. It's an institution and something not to be...

We reserved a table for 2 persons on short notice (and were obviously a bit lucky, because all seats in the restaurants were occupied on a wednesday at lunchtime). The interior is very traditional, as is the food and the beer and snaps menu. We had full traditional danish Lunch and that blew us away. We talked to some very... More

We came here for a family lunch when visiting Copenhagen for a day only. I didn't know anything about this restaurant, my brother-in-law researched the best restaurant to go to on our short visit to the city and he chose Restaurant Schoennemann. I didn't know what to expect but boy was I blown away! We all had open sandwiched and... More

Maybe the best danish selfmade food we have eaten in Denmark. We thought They had a la carte, that was told on the webside, but you could only order the fixed danish plater, to about 700 Nok. The service was very good, the atmosphere as well. But, it is a waste when people eat 1/3 of the food served. It... More

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.
