The restaurant has a very authentic feeling and you can definitely tell the age of the place. Lots of character throughout. The food was affordable and very large portions. We ordered the multiple course Smorgsbrod (spelling?), there was so much food! Very very very tasty...More

We stopped here after visiting the little mermaid. The staff was fabulous and very helpful. We had some open faced sandwiches with an assortment of traditional toppings with some local beers. The restaurant is the oldest in Copenhagen with lots of warmth and history

Lovely ambiance, friendly service, and good cuisine. We did the Lunch Plate (kind of like a prix fixe menu that's for the whole table) and it was way too much food. Next time we would order a la carte.

We got there by accident, and were absolutely struck with the interior (semi-basement room), everything is old and dark. Despite this, I found an outlet in the hall for charging the phone. We ate delicious food and relatively not expensive.
