In a company of 6 gents we sat there for just an excellent meal, in a perfect setting, accompanied by several snapses and local beer. Tried several dishes of smörrebröd and each seemed to outperform the other. To say nothing more of the service I think that it may have been the only thing that matched the quality of the... More

Our driver from airport recommended this restaurant which was close to Admiral Hotel and the Palace. A warm and friendly welcome to this very busy lunchtime venue which, thankfully, we had booked. Not a lot of space but certainly enough and well furnished. Had a lovely corner table which apparently usually seats royalty! Good wine list and the local gourmet... More

Just one street away from the touristic hustle and bustle of Nyhavn, on the way to the Queens Castle, you'll find this gem of a classic Danish smørrebrød (sandwich) restaurant. We were lucky to get seated at lunchtime so I recommend to book in advance. The service, ambience and the quality of the food were top class. The choice of... More

I have been to Sankt Annae restaurant many times. The tables are packed into this very small restaurant. The menu rarely changes (although there are specials of the day) - the main point is that the food has always been good (largely Danish in style) and the service friendly and efficient. In a way it almost feels like you are... More

We have a tradition with some friends, eating "traditionally Danish" for lunch every February to celebrate a few birthdays. We've been around, and we've been to many very good places - fortunately, the selection of Danish open-face sandwich restaurants is quite steady, despite the constant emergence of new, fancy and worth-while alternatives. This one is one of the most hyped... More

This is a great restaurant for a traditional Danish lunch! Great location - between Amalienborg and Nyhavn. The food and the presentation were outstanding. Service was very professional. It's a bit costly, but worth it! Highly recommended!

I'll never come here again. The restaurant manager was incredibly RUDE to me and my family before and during our lunch reservation. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a restaurant before. I made the reservation two months in advance, and the deal was to send them an email a couple of days before our reservation with the list of... More

For years and years I have been coming here, the food has always been great albeit very over priced. I would come here 3-4 times per year and bring family and friends, usually 10-12 people every time, spending a small fortune. This has however come to an end, I will never come here again and I will share my experience... More

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.
