Located right next to the Nyhavn boat tour stop: being the typical tourist, my mum and I decided to have lunch here after finishing our canal tour of Nyhavn. Thanks to the location, the view from the tables outside is terrific!!
We came around 11.00 and they weren't serving lunch yet (which starts at 11.30, I was told) so we decided to wait with a sip espresso, which was satisfactory.
Then for lunch we ordered their lunch plate with filet of herring (instead of the bread option).
The complimentary bread was excellent; like the scandinavian seed&rye bread you would expect at fancy restaurants.
Every part of the lunch plate we loved as well! Especially their specialty, the herring filet, was so flavorful and soft. My god it was delicious. Salmon and roast beef were really good too. Shrimp and chicken salad- not as much, but still good. The others were just too good. Very filling and very tasty; the type of food I with which I would gladly stuff myself, while screaming at my stomach to take it like a man.
The only thing I disagree with the plate is the excessive amount of sauce. They smother everything in sauce. If you, like me, would rather taste the actual food than the condiments, just scrape of the piles of sauces aside with your fork and enjoy what is hiding beneath. (Still my mum, who has a less picky appetite and enjoys flavorful sauces, lived all of them and cleaned the plate white with the bread :))
Now the reason for my one-less-than-five score, is that we had to ask for the bill not once, not twice, but three times.
(Let a girl pay her bills please! :p)
The first attempt to pay, I don't even think the employee even registeted what we said in his head. The second attempt, he came over and made eye contact and even repeated after our request for the bill. By the time we were definitely convinced that he completely forgot about our request, we had no choice but to abruptly ask another employee. She did remember, thankfully.
I would not blame the emoloyees; they seemed too busy, and the last person was apologetic about our wait. The restaurant maybe needs to reconsider their table:employee ratio during peak seasons/times, especially considering their extremely popular and touristy location.
