For good and bad, Tante Maren delivers exactly what is promised; traditional danish dishes with fine service and reasonable prices. Their "Pariserbøf" is among the best I have tried.

The food here is regularly household food - and plenty of it. And it tastes good. The service however is non-existing; it took 20 minutes from I finished my main course until the waitress approached me - and an additional 15 minutes till I got my cheese platter. And this was not because the restaurant was filled at the time.... More

If you want to experience typically wholesome dining then this is the place for you. It was a busy night with all tables full and it did look a bit cosy for some of the tables. The portions are large so come ready with an appetite. Goats cheese first course is delicious.

Food is good, not excellent like Michellin, but the atmosphere and service don't come better in Denmark. Combine it with a visit to Farum lake and it is so much Danish :) Just relax.

This is a great place to get typical Danish homemade food, and you will not be hungry when leaving, as the plates are covered. Service are nice, beers are cold and you feel you got your moneys worth while leaving. You do sit a little tight, but nothing wrong in getting to know other people.

Nice place, I fell like I was back as a kid. The classic beef (Hakkebøf med blødeløg) was really amazing. The "new" stuff no special. Go for the classic food.

We were there in December for a Christmas lunch - open sandwich as we are calling it in Denmark - every thing was so delicious and fresh

Always good Danish food at reasonable prices and good service. The restaurant is more than 100 years old and has kept its ambience.
