We were in the city saturday, and went in for a late lunch. Sweet waiter gave us a table, and ordered drinks fast. Went for a burger, and it was the best I've had in years. The meat was so jucy, the potatoes sweetly baked, and the salad and sauce fitted it all together perfectly. Nice and clean toilet, and... More

Really nice restaurant centrally located near Teaterplassen. We had the burger, the European hake and the veal - all three excellent. The service was impeccable, the price affordable. Super good value for money.

The food was really good and the waiter very nice. The music was maybe a bit loud, but I would absolute visit again.

We've been there due to an International meeting. We had a three course dinner, and everything was very nice presented. We could taste the quality of the ingredients and it was nice that the Chef came to explain every of the the three dishes throughout the meal. I loved the fish. Very nice indeed.

We went there for dinner on a rainy evening and therefore had to sit indoors, but in a well appointed and soberly styled place. The food is very good, and so is the service.

The restaurant has a very nice location and you can dine inside or outside. The food is super good and well presented and not too expensive for its quality

The restaurant is less than 5min walk from Grønland T-bane station, very convenient to get to. They extended the seating area to the square in front of the restaurant when when weather is good in the summer months, very nice setting. We had the king crab as starters and the halibut cooked in asian style as main. Both of the... More

You must order before eight. The food is tasty, portions are ok. A small but well balanced menu. Friendly staff, simple decor but you can sit outside in a small square. Good value for money.

I've never been disappointed at Vognmand Nielsen. You get a great three/four course meal for a very good price. Wine suggestions are usually spot on. I especially recommend the terrace on a sunny day. Have a snack and a glass or four.

Simple, but very tasty food for lunch. Salads, soups, burgers. Good service, warm terrace to eat outdoors. Definitely worth the visit.
