An affordable and acceptable Spanish restaurant with classic Spanish dishes, good wine and good service. The menu consists of the usual Spanish dishes/tapas: Meat balls, gazpacho, serrano ham, crema catalana etc. The restaurant is located in an excellent spot near the lakes and Nørreport station. The tables are small and the atmosphere relaxed.

They call it big Tapas but actually are normal size. Some of the dishes were better than others, overall we left on full stomach. Not sure if it was due to the very slow service that we got and the fact that we had many drinks in between the food.... Value for money - there will be no next time... More

Very good tapas. We tried only non-meat options and were not disappointed. Note, however, that the portions are quite big. 2 - 2,5 per person is probably enough.

El Porron serves a menu with lot of small dishes. Some of which does reassemble tapas as I know and love it from Spain, but some of dishes seems far from spain ... Well, service is friendly, albeit somewhat confused. The menu is a bit to expensive. The prices for the cocktails would be okay I guess, if they contained... More

Excellent meal, great service. Doesn't look much from the outside but well worth a visit if you're in Copenhagen.

Cozy little tapas bar just a stone's throw from Nørreport train station was a delight for a lazy Monday evening dinner. We had a deal coupon and found the fixed menu fresh, tasty and filling with a good selection. The house wine was nice with each glass ample in size. Service was great except they do not take credit/debit cards,... More

The restaurant had a cozy atmosphere but no Spanish music. A waiter was friendly, and also polite, we like him. We had several different tapas. But all of them were not interesting at all, I mean "it was not bad". Additionally, beer was expensive even though it has cheap taste. It is difficult to recommend the restaurant except the waiter.

The restaurant is mainly based on Sweet deal customers. When vi visited everything was run in 2 hour cycles. Everybody got the same coupon meal. Food was mediocre and quite tasteless. The rooms was packed like a McDonald's Friday night and staff clearly didn't care about customers experience. After 1 hour and 40 min we tried to order coffe but... More

The food was okay to good but not very interesting. Guitars and the typical decorations your grandmother brings you from Spain are very cliche. I love tapas but there was nothing special or memorable except for the bad decoration.
