An overpriced tourist trap with inconsiderate service and an incoherent menu. The food was ok but hardly anything to write home about. Not recommended.

We had paella. It was pretty good. Not as good as Chez Mireille, Nice, but comparison wouldn't be fair, since Chez Mireille specializes in paella and only that. The atmosphere is very good, walls are painted beautifully, personal is indeed Spanish and other dishes we saw around looked definitely worth a try. Absolutely recommendable.

We booked this restaurant a week in advance and we are glad we did. Soon as we arrived we were given a warm welcome by the owner and his staff - typical Spanish hospitality. We ordered the tapas special which was delicious. The overall experience is food, service and atmosphere was great and well worth the visit. Grazie Mille Elvio... More

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.
