Went for dinner our first night, might be my favourite of all the restaurants we visited. The place has so much character and is such a interesting place to eat in a laid-back atmosphere. The servings are large, very tasty and very cheap!

Great value in centre of Copenhagen - ambience relaxed, candlelit at lunchtime, books everywhere... lots of students quietly studying and eating the great food! Portion sizes are very generous - we ordered 3 dishes between the two of us and it was way too much!...More

We had breakfast and dinner here.. great food and setting! Love the books around the store and conversations. Young waiters and waitresses are friendly and very helpful. English menu available. I tried the big breakfast that has a little if everything.. delicious!

We had brunch at the Paludan early on a Sunday morning. The coffee was good, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere cozy. There are no culinary revelations to be had, however, if you are a librophile, you should absolutely have a cup of coffee and...More
