“Lock me up here please!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Sadly we were just in Copenhagen for the weekend and the restaurant was not open when we passed but the bar downstairs was just great. It is all cells and bars and the handsome 'warden' served my lady friend first making us insanely jealous. They have good beer and a great friendly laid back atmosphere. Will be back again for sure.

The food was absolutely great and the ambience very cozy! The entrance to the restaurant is not what you would expect! Will go back again.

“Great soups”
Reviewed 17 July 2011

The concept is that all courses are soups. We were 3 people and all had different soups and they were tasty so we can recommend the place if you are in the mood for a 'soup-experience'.
