Dansk smørebrød at its finest... But make sure you book a table. It's popular because it's great! Start with the herring and try the pork. You won't be disappointed! Don't forget the Akvavit!

An interesting traditional smorresbrod restaurant in a cozy cellar, which is inevitably pricey because of it's location, but seems well patronised by locals. I would have thought that the portions would have been a larger given the price - DK 140 = £18 for two...More
