This was a wonderful find, very close to our hotel. We found the restaurant recommended on Tripadvisor and using their own website arranged our reservation directly with them, and they were very swift to respond.
The menu appeared limited, but do not be deceived as the food is prepared from available fresh ingredients and reflects changing seasons.
The restaurant was intimate and well attended by patrons yet was not noisy and did not feel crowded.
The service was wonderful, very friendly and the chef served each table taking great trouble to explain each dish and his creations.
The food was exceptional, the flavours were well balanced and exciting on the palate. Added to which they were visually very impressive making the desire to eat even greater!
We will have no hesitation returning to this restaurant, intact we struggled with the decision as to whether to return each night or eat elsewhere.

While Martin Preisler and Jacob FIscher gave their op todate new interpretation of x-mas carols we enjoyed a menu of true "slow food" including soup, Norwegian pressed cod (for 12 days), Raindeer and Multe-berries.

Could not ask for more

My daughter and I were in Copenhagen for 3 days and ate here mid week . The restaurant was quiet but had a relaxing atmosphere, the menu was clearly explained as were the portion sizes - we went for small so that we would have room for desert! My daughter had the reindeer pot which was was a heady mix of Gamey flavours with the meat sublimely tender. I had the traditional Xmas cod dish with cod roe ...excellent ,but glad I chose the small portion. We finished with homemade petit four and tea with the bill coming to 679 kr - we didn't have wine which probably kept the price down and felt it was the best value for money meal that we'd had in Copenhagen. A lovely evening with great service,friendly and amusing without being intrusive - would definitely come again!

My wife and I have been travel to Copenhagen before Christmas nearly every year since 2001 and have tried a lot of different restaurants. This is definitely the best one!

It's a rather small restaurant, with an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.

We try the “Taster-menu 6 dishes”; Crayfish salad, Creamy cauliflower soup, Pot of reindeer, bacalao, Danish cheeses and crème caramel (See my attached photos). All with an amazing accompanying wine menu.

This is maybe the best dinner experience ever!!


The host and owners, Casten and Mats from my hometown Bergen - Norway, is very professional and give us an experience this evening that we will remember forever!

See you next year!

Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

We were on a weekend break in Copenhagen and ate here on a Friday night. We had the tasting menu which included four dishes with matched wines, and we also paid for an extra dessert. The total cost was about £80 per person.

The cauliflower soup was rich and creamy, and full of flavour. The 'bacalao of the house' was well cooked in a tomato sauce, although it divided opinions on our table between two who liked it a lot and two who liked it much less. We then had the duck confit cooked in port and served with red cabbage, which was very good. The next dish was reindeer served with a puree of root vegetables which was excellent. We also had a clouberry dessert which was fine but not exceptional.

The wines were very good and well matched with the food. The maitre d' was well informed, present without being intrusive and full of good humour.
