Fantastic restaurant with good food and reasonable price. The staff are also very kind. My only complaint is that the chairs are very uncomfortable to sit in, especially for my wife whose wonderful bottom got numb after 1 hour. They did offer some cushions but to no avail.

I had lunch with 15 colleagues this summer. Everything was ordered in advance - we had smørrebrød. Everything was so fresh and tasty and the herring the best I've ever had! Perhaps because of the owner being Swedish? I am allergic to gluten and had my own selection. The service was great and I can highly recommend a visit here.

When exploring the beautiful park of Frederiksberg, you must include in your plans to have lunch in this cosy and quaint place specially when the weather is good. We were visiting a friend, who lived nearby and he brought his dog along. Immediately, the nice waiter brought the dog a bowl of water, and she also came out with savoury... More

The quality of the food is a notch better than most of the other restaurants serving "smørrebrød" in the area. Large selection to choose from, and plattes too. Size varies though. Beer on tap had too little gas for my taste, bordering flat. Service is fine - when you can get hold of a waiter... Which was problem on a... More

Great location with lots of outdoor seating. Lunch was good, traditional Danish fare so do not expect less. Some English spoken and English menus available. Next to the park and off the street.

There was no chance that we could find it without our guide's advice. We loved it. It is not one one of the best meal in the world, but I think if you are in Copenhagen, you should try it. Open top sandwiches go excellent with the local beer :))

A cafe that appears a favourite with the locals, and certainly their local Danish food was excellent. Situated in Sondermarken, it's a quiet spot against the greenery of the park. Worth making a reservation as it was fully booked for lunch.

Neighbourhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
