Good, old-fashioned Danish restaurant. Nice retro atmosphere. Good service. The 'Colorado steak' was excellent. OK salad buffet. Our vegetarian was less than enchanted with the omelette, which she pronounced 'boring'.

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
