... But a bit disappointing when it comes to the quantities. We took the smoked salmon and the plaice, and both were really fresh.

There are many good restaurants for Smørrebrød in Copenhagen and this one is definitely in the top end. It’s a small restaurant that makes you feel like you step back in time conveniently located close to the Royal Palace. There are also a few tables outside weather permitting but if you want to sit inside it’s best to book in... More

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times, and it always delivers. The service is relaxed but good. And the food is very classic danish "Smørrebrød" When you step in you get a feeling of visiting your grand parents. Its quite cosy and you have a cosy feeling here. I would recommend to book a table, but its not... More

Our first Danish meal in Copenhagen was a delightful experience. Ordered some local specialty to try out- pickled herring, Gravadlax and meat balls. Dishes were very tasty and fresh and the meat balls were soft and tasty!

We lunched at Amalie because of Tripadvisor reviews and were so pleased we did. It is a real sweetie of a restaurant. It has style written all over it. Decor is charming. Food is fabulous and excellent value for money. Service is solicitous. It was just so right in every way.

Amalie is a cosy restaurant close to the Amalienborg where we just watched the 'change of the guards'. The restaurant, a bit tight with the number of tables cramped in, but the decor spreads a feeling of a nice country home. The place is focusing on lunches. Serving traditional Danish dishes. Smoked herring, gravlax, crevettes with egg etc. are just... More

We came here for lunch and absolutely loved it. It had very good traditional local dishes. I would recommend the fried herring. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxing. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a local restaurant with good food and decent prices in the vicinity of Nyhaven.

Lying in a basement with small rooms this place is really tight and tou have good times with other guests. Tasty smörrebröd, herring and other fish dishes with a fantastic variety of schnaps to choose from! A true scandinavian lunch for great value!

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.
