A old very danish and traditional restaurant where danish dishes are served with a genuine touch, when we where there it was very busy but they managed to get it all done with the danish smile, next time i will be there earlier and sit longer.

We were lucky enough to stumble across this restaurant when on our way to the round tour. Fantastic menu with lots of choice and some real Danish dishes. Reasonably priced and a great atmosphere, too.

We literally stumbled across this restaurant while walking around the old town area of Copenhagen and had the most delicious lunch!! The marinated herrings are simply out of this world - they are the must have item on the menu. With a good beer there is nothing better!!

Of course this restaurant is touristy, as every guide mentions it. The terrace tables were occupied, so we went inside in a cosy corner. The service was okay, but not overwhelmingly friendly. We ordered, as probably all tourists do, Smoerebroed. It was good, but probably not what we had expected. All in all we had the impression it is a... More

This was the restaurant I had identified in advance of my trip to be the one I wanted to try when in Copenhagen for a long weekend. I went with a friend on the Sunday evening and we had a good meal of traditional Danish food. The waitress was particularly pleasant and not at all surprised when we said we... More

Det Lille Apotek is a lovely and cosy place to spend some time. It feels authentic and the staff encourage you to do things the local way, and advise you on which drinks should go with different dishes. They have a good home brewed beer and a great value dinner. If you want traditional danish food and charm this is... More

This is a very old and cozy restaurant in central Copenhagen. But the food is mediocre and they it seems as they are satisfied by selling on its atmosphere.

Quite a cozy, quaint restaurant inside, but we opted to sit outside and enjoy the day. The restaurant is just down from the Rondaturn and just at the University. I had the pork plate and it was quite good. Other patrons seemed to enjoy each dish that the server brought. I will say that the servers are not extremely attentive,... 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.
