We also invite you to read, what Food Journalist Mikkel Bækgaard and Food Stylist/bon vivant Thomas Alcayaga wrote about our Christmas lunch, as well as why the Copenhagen Guide, AOK, recommends us in their guide “The 6 good places to eat Christmas lunch” .

Please note that we are only able to make one collective bill per party in the Christmas season.
If a party is more than ten minutes late for their booking, and we have not been informed about the delay, we take the liberty of offering the table to another party.
Please note that we advise against bringing children (under the age of 14) for the Christmas Parties as the meal is quite lenghty and the ambience can become quite loud and festive, which – in our experience – often make children feel uncomfortable causing negative reactions.
