Stepping into Restaurant Grønttorvet is a bit like walking into a time warp. The corner where the restaurant is located can be dated back to the beginning of the 13th century, and for more than 250 years there has been an eatery on the premises. Inside the restaurant there are wooden floors and wainscots, and the waiters are dressed in black and white –just like in the old days.
“We are a traditional restaurant with classic table service. We don’t pretend to be a fancy café, which is why almost all of our dishes are Danish,” says Søren Windell, who has been the host at Restaurant Grønttorvet since 2009.
