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.

Really charming old restaurant with awesome frikadelller (meatballs). It's worth the few blocks you'll walk away from the water - better food at a more reasonable price.

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

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
