“Authentic old world charm”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

I hesitate to give away our favorite restaurants, because I want them to stay just the way they are! As a expatriate living in Denmark, this is one of our favorites. The building is the old canteen for the adjacent clothing factory, and has been restored to its original old charm. The first time we ate here it was for St. Morten's Day, a day Danes celebrate with roast duck. We've come to this restaurant for lunch as well... every time the food and service have been wonderful. And I always take note of how clean the restrooms are - which is often a problem in Denmark. Here, they are spotless.

“Quality in historic settings.”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Hired the restaurant for a private function, and the restaurant served as the perfect setting for the event. Beautifully located, overlooking the lake and surrounded by the forrest, the restaurant presents itself beautifully. The staff and kitchen was excellent, everything was as promised. The food and service met our expectations fully.

“Great food in idyllic location”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Brede spisehus is located in a great natural environment north of Copenhagen right next to Mølleåen (Mill River) in a beautiful historical building. It serves really good food at a reasonable price. We live close by and go there quite often to enjoy this combination of natural beauty and good food - very recommendable. If you want to enhance your experience you could walk through the forest (easy hike) from Lyngby and arrive with a healthy appetite.

“Quality and history in idyllic surroundings”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

This is a great restaurant when you want to get out of the big city buzzle and enjoy a high quality meal in idyllic forest surroundings. A simple 24 mins from the underground city station of Nørreport, head north with S-train line B (every 20mins), change at Jægersborg station to the local train for Nærum and get off at Brede. The restaurant is 30 secs. walk from the station, but on your way, you immediately fall in love with the beautiful charm of historical buildings, carefully situated down to a lake leading into a forest, and the restaurant is right there in the middle of it all. The cuisine is Danish (smørrebrød is on the menu) and French (warm meals). Not expensive, but fair and high quality. History is everywhere you look; on the walls, the setting of tables and chairs, the kitchen, the terrasse for those warm summer afternoons. Brede Spisehus is simply so charming and a great retreat from the big city. Perfect for both business venues and a casual lunch. I prefer lunch to enjoy the scenery of green nature in sunny daylight. Back to Nørreport in 24 mins:-).
