Fantastic Danish food. We had the lunch plate, with herring, salmon and tenderloin. The portions were huge and the quality was great. I'd definitely recommend :)

Went to see changing of the guard at Ameilomborg, stop #4, Hop on Off Bus. Happened upon Amalie, decided to have lunch. From start to finish, 5 star for service, food. 5 of us had different meals, all enjoyed with exception of chicken in a curry sauce (described as a chicken salad). Would recommend without reservation.

Very good value: home made Christmas specialities of excellent quality. Beer from Fur microbrewery. Remember however: book (long) in advance - the place is FULL in December!

We visited this restaurant a week before Christmas. The staff helped us to make room for our reservation via email a month before. The food was absolutely fantastic! Our waiter suggested that we should order 1-2 plates of smörrebröd and after that cheeses. We ordered in total 5 different dishes and they all were great! You must taste the gravlax,... More

I came here with a group of friends and after seeing good reviews on here. The restaurant is extremely cute. It has an old fashioned cozy style feel, we sat outside and it was a bit nippy but the chairs had complementary blankets. The staff were helpful and even though the restaurant doesn't have any vegetarian mains, they were able... More

We simply love this place! You simply have to go and eat here. In summer sit out on the pavement - if the weather is inclement dine in the cosy dining room. Fabulous open sandwiches of the highest quality A superb relaxed atmosphere strangely sophisticated yet so friendly and not at all stuffy. Warm staff and seasonal beer - what... More

Amalie is an institution in Copenhagen - a sought after place for lunch in particular; Danish at its best with a twist of elegance... I don't know whether the time has ran away from it or whether it's plain and common sloppiness, but the overall experience was disappointing. The food - two ordered platters and two ordered traditional open ssandwiches... More

Amalie offers the best Danish sandwiches in huge portions besides delicious beers from Fur brewery and a variety of schnapps - served efficiently by a very friendly staff in friendly surroundings - inside or outside.

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.
