Typical place in a touristic district where you can eat some of special and typical danish dishes for a good price ! The herrings are very good and you have to try Christmas Aquavit (a bit strong). Good and quiet place.

We were looking for lunch and found it. Took a while, and the other eateries didn't impress. The smorrebrod with roast beef was great, really enjoyed it. The staff were busy (sunny day) but attentive. Great for resting and observing the people.
