Really nice restaurant centrally located near Teaterplassen. We had the burger, the European hake and the veal - all three excellent. The service was impeccable, the price affordable. Super good value for money.

We went there for dinner on a rainy evening and therefore had to sit indoors, but in a well appointed and soberly styled place. The food is very good, and so is the service.

You must order before eight. The food is tasty, portions are ok. A small but well balanced menu. Friendly staff, simple decor but you can sit outside in a small square. Good value for money.

I've never been disappointed at Vognmand Nielsen. You get a great three/four course meal for a very good price. Wine suggestions are usually spot on. I especially recommend the terrace on a sunny day. Have a snack and a glass or four.

Simple, but very tasty food for lunch. Salads, soups, burgers. Good service, warm terrace to eat outdoors. Definitely worth the visit.
