The scallops were amazing, very good value - 95DKK for five delicious scallops. The host was very warm and explained the dishes very well. The pork cheeks was not as nice as I'd imagine because it was a bit rough instead of tender. Would love to come back next month to try something else as main!

I understand now why this restaurant is #1 ! It is not its location or marble floors. It's the sensational attention to detail in the food and the service. I can't think of having experienced better in 30 years of restauration in 4 continents. Wow! I can't even begin to describe the culinary delight. It has to be experienced. I... More

Good food presented with amazing knowledge, energy and enthusiasm! I wasn't 'blown away' by this food but it was tasty and clearly well prepared. To agree with another reviewer, the #1 spot on TA might have set expectations a wee bit high but I would still absolutely recommend this place for a well cooked, tasty and beautifully presented meal.

I found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and saw that it was rated as No. 1. Now I understand why. As It was rated high I of course expected it to be expensine, but its actually very affordable. I would actually be prepared to pay much more for this experience. The restaurant is quite small and cozy. Carsten, the Norwegian owner... More

The problem with a restaurant that is so high rated is not the restaurant itself, it's rather my high expectations. We missed our first appointment but were offered a reservation next day which we gladly accepted. Don't get me wrong, the food is excellent & the service is even better. The guys have a wonderful sense of humor and the... More

I booked this place as it is #1 on here and it didn't disappoint! The food was delicious and each course was well explained by the very friendly staff. It is what a lot of locals call a more traditional restaurant and was full of local people which is always a good sign. We had the 5 course taster menu... More

This is a small, intimate, yet fine restaurant. The food was excellent, the wine pairing for each dish was precise, the service was warm and knowledgeable, and the price is very reasonable for such a good restaurant. Enjoy.

We visited this restaurant situated along the StudieStræde Nr. 17 as four couples for an evening of culinary wonder. All dishes were perfectly prepared and wine paired which Mats and Carsten so wonderfully described and explained the background to each dish and each glass of wine - truly wonderful and an incredible walking encyclopedia of product know-how. From the Fish... More

My wife booked a table based on the quality of the reviews. Pretty restaurant greeted by the owner Mads. We both had the tasting menu with wine. Mads made the recommendations and we were happy to trust him. All I can say is that the quality of the food is superb. It is rare to come across an establishment that... 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.
