Local fare + TESTING WORD restaurants

Restaurant Schønnemann & Vinstue

Already one of Copenhagen’s most beloved places for smørrebrød and now also an oenophile fave.


For many Danes, akvavit is the real reason to eat smørrebrød, and the herbal spirit is also the primary reason to come here.

Aamanns Etablissement

An award-winning ode to the humble sandwich that goes a bit beyond your bog-standard ham and cheese.

Signatur Spisehus

CLOSED. For a quality taste of local cuisine in the center of town, you’re in good hands at this spisehus, be it for business, leisure or even a date.

TP Smørrebrød

Surprisingly cheap Danish smørrebrød sarnies only a stone’s throw from Nyhavn. A lunchtime essential for the budget conscious.

Restaurant Paustian

The restaurant at the iconic furniture house was without a chef for a while, but holy upholstery, is it back with a bang.

Restaurant Kanalen

Fall in love with the riverfront location at this classic tavern style establishment and tuck into traditional curried fish balls.

Slotskælderen hos Gitte Kik

Your best bet for classic Danish open sandwiches, or smørrebrød, popular with neighbouring politicians.
