Great place - part of a church - with plenty of "hygge" going on in the classy candlelit interior. Friendly unpretentious staff, extensive (and expensive) wine list and lovely food. Book ahead as they turned away a dozen people during the course of our meal. Kr1250 for 2 inc aperos, wine and coffee.

In a building connedted to the St. Nikolai Church close to Strøget is this restaurant. A nice place with good food. Not a huge a la carte list, but few dishes to choose from. The food is good, nicely prepared and the service fine. Also an excellent winelist

These guys were amazing and looked out for me while I waited for my friend for an insanely long time tonight! I haven't met such friendly, kind waiters in a long time. You made my night that much better. The dining week menu was superb and the schnapps was just the ticket. I'd be back for a date :)

The restaurant offers Classic french cuisine, in the old Church building. Its cozy, informal and the food is great. We had the gnocci and the onion pie for starters and the Osobuco and the tartar for main course. Great service and a lovely atmosphere! Be sure to reserve a table!

Some excellent dishes here with monk fish on the bone with cabbage. No ridiculous stuff like begonia petals etc here. The interior has a lot of character

Very impressed by the food and friendly service, all the staff was very knowledgeable and explained the dishes to us.

Great take on New Nordic Cuisine - simple menu with a small selection of dishes, the monkfish and apple cake dessert we had were some of the best dishes I've ever had, great service and very friendly and relaxed ambience.

This is Denmark at its best - pickled herring, fishcakes and "a bayer"(beer) and a snaps (akevitt). This little restaurant squeezed in an old church makes it a perfect place to take the one that you love to. Rasmus - our waiter made a little place for us even the restaurant was packed with pre-christmasy shoppers happily eating their lunch... 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.
