'The Little Pharmacy' is the oldest restaurant in Copenhagen, and was once frequented by writer Hans Christian Andersen and other Danish artists. Everything about the restaurant is traditional, from the cosy dining rooms lit by petroleum lamps, to the menu offering the most Danish of dishes.

Every Monday and Tuesday from 5.30pm, Det Lille Apotek serves up Denmark's traditional dish of crispy pork with potatoes and parsley sauce. The kitchen closes at 10pm.
