Visited twice already on our trip and have enjoyed both times! The tomato soup, vegetarian brunch and the baked potatoes were great, but wouldn't really recommend the vegetarian lasagna. Massive portions and very busy, but very affordable for copenhagen

We shared the herring platter which was excellent then had a burger each. Very good. Washed down with a good bottle of Rose, All reasonably priced. Will go again next time we... More

Saturday lunchtime leading up to Christmas was certainly not the best time to visit as this restaurant was sooooo busy! They have no system in place for allocating tables and they only accept bookings for large groups so you had to pounce on an available table before someone else grabbed it. However, the wait was worth it as the food... More

We had to queue. Good sign! Then ordered and were warned that portions are huge. Two tomato soups and the herring platter to share and they were not wrong!!! Great food, lovely atmosphere, we'll be back!

The vegetable lasagne was very nice, fast service and we were able to find a table after waiting only 2 minutes. The place was crowded but not noisy. If you want to eat for low price and have a big variety of food, you have to try Paludan.

The portion was really big and it was really really good. There was a long queue and the English menu was available too. The only thing is it's a very busy there so if you want a quieter atmosphere you might need to consider, otherwise this is a very good place.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
