This trendy restaurant boasts fine views of lake Sct. Jørgens; you can enjoy meals out on the terrace in summer. The lunch menu is a mix of classic Danish and international dishes like mature cheese with jelly and dark rum and salmon pickled in balsamic vinegar. Prices range from DKK30 to DKK80. There is a good selection of vegetarian options like aubergine stuffed with sun-dried tomato and red chillies for DKK82. Three-course meals are available from DKK 75. The house wine costs DKK145.
We booked a table on a busy night - the day before New Year's Eve after several other restaurants said they were fully booked.
The location is great, next to a lake and part of the Planetarium complex.
When we arrived there were only 2 other sets of diners, a group of French and a couple, also French, so it was 90% empty. It should have rung warning bells that there were no locals eating in such a residential district.
The menu was short and pretty pricey. We ordered a chicken terrine which was plain to the point of incredibly tasteless, and a French seafood soup which was far too salty and overpowered by saffron. We complained and the chef agreed about the salt and offered another starter, which we declined. Mains were better, but still overcomplicated and a little odd. The waiter was very pleasant but more interested in setting up New Year decorations out of a vast array of cardboard boxes.
We were surprised that the starter was not taken off the bill, I guess the restaurant needed every penny it could get. Avoid.
