This is indeed the very best place in Copenhagen to try a high quality Danish "frokost" aka lunch. The Schønnemann Restaurant on old Hauser Sqaure performs well homemade "smørrebrød", classic beers and over 40 types of high quality Scandinavian snaps (aquavit). This is very Danish - where business men, locals and Danes from Jutland, Funen and other parts of Denmark book a table for a wonderful lunch - where history, quality and food make a very nice harmony. If you haven´t tried traditional Danish smørrebrød, ask the friendly staff, so you get the best out of it, and don´t mix the wrong things; the danish lunch is full of traditions and "does " and "don'ts" - dispite the somehow loose and relaxed atmosphere. Expect to book a table in good time. Prices are fair - but high.

Went to Schønnemann with my wife for a high quality experience.

We had the "Schønnemann meal (anretning)", which consists of:
Fried herring & curry herring
Plaice fillets
marinated salmon (gravad laks)
chicken salad (hønsesalat)
calves liver pate
rib roast
and cheese

We also tried the "Schønnemann Ale", "Carlsberg Extra", sweet gale schnapps and heather schnapps.

This was the 3. time I visited "Schønnemann" and though it isn't cheap - it is very good value for money!

Restaurant Schoennemann is a classic Danish frokost (=lunch) restaurant in Copenhagen's city centre (between Stroget and Norreport Station). Atmosphere and service are excellent. If you are not sure what you want let the staff inspire you. Usually two "smoerrebroeds" are the right amount per person for lunch.

We both started with the very tasty and crispy "Roedspaettefilet" (plaice fillet) with remoulade. Afterwards I enjoyed "Hr. Schoennemann", duck breast with apple-beetroot salad. My partner had "flaeskesteg" (roasted pork steak - a traditional Danish Christmas dish).

At this restaurant you drink beer and aquavit with your food. The waiter suggested a safran aquavit and a Schoenneman Ale to me - both were excellent.

I am not surprised this restaurant won the title of "frokost restaurant of 2010" and numerous other awards and positive reviews. Michelin-star chef Rene Redzepi (Noma) is a regular guest here. However, I am surprised that Schoennemann was not even mentioned on Tripadvisor until now.

It is open from Monday to Friday from 1130h to 17h.
