During Copenhagen Dining Week I also went to Magstræde 16, which I had really been looking forward to. The food was great and the company even better, but I was left with a bit of a sour aftertaste in regards to the service which was, well, crap. I hope it was because they were not used to having big rushes of people only there to eat, as far as I know it is a winebar where you can also eat, so maybe not a restaurant per se but then why join in on the ‘cheap restaurant visits for everyone’ type thing and make a big deal about pizza?
I like good service and I will gladly pay more for my food to get a good overall experience. This extends to supermarket visits as well, and generally all kinds of shopping. I had two very good experiences with this just yesterday, getting glasses for a pair of frames at Louis Nielsen in Nørrebro Centeret and one glass of wine and a plate of cheese at Terroiristen here in Jægersborggade. What good service is can be discussed and will of course vary from person to person, but what I don’t want is to feel like I am a burden at whatever place I am at, when I am spending a good deal of money. I like to know what I am eating or drinking, so knowledge is a preference I value greatly and also a welcoming attitude. So despite the good food and lovely decor, I doubt I will return to Magstræde 16.
How blatantly obvious and cliché am I being right now? “Don’t let one bad experience ruin it for you!” Well, why would I give money and time to a place I have already once disliked, when there are hundreds of other places to try?

Also my laugh was captured on camera, which is rare.

Flattr this!

Mamma this surely is a dream

If you experienced the downtime that occured between Sunday and today, Friday, I apologise. I broke the whole thing while editing stuff I shouldn’t have been tampering with, and couldn’t fix it until I got back from Berlin. Sorry!

Anyway, here are some photos from Restaurant Bjørnekælderen which I went to during Copenhagen Dining Week last month. The food was great and the service excellent, so over all a very pleasant experience.
