Belgian inspired beer restaurant and bar. In the basement is the bar, and you go through that to reach the upstairs restaurant. Beer selection and staff is A level, while the clientèle can be a bunch of hipsters due to the proximity to the financial, diplomatic and political buildings nearby.
The restaurant used to serve enormous menus of food made of the beer that accompanied it. Now the menus are more reasonably sized and at most inspired by the beer. However at 500 dkk for four courses and five beers, it is definitely still great value.
Great place. The bar is very cosey and have a large ariation on taps of the very best beers. Especially you can get lucky with belgian and swedish beers. One of the only places where you can get Närke Käggen (expensie though). The restaurent up-stairs is nice and the food is excellent. I always come here in week 5 the my co-workers. Some of the employees know a lot about beer.

The dinner kitchen far outshines the lunch kitchen, and the Beer-Food-matching is the best I’ve ever experienced.

Lunch (or "Frokost" acc. to Danish meal labelling) enjoyed together with many fellow beer lovers and ratebeerians during Ølfestival København 2010. Several taps in the pub cellar, which you walk through to get to the first floor restaurant. Belgian beer line, but with several interesting additions. Service is splendid and the staff knows their beers. I pointed out that the rib eye steak was tough to chew, and it was switched with little hassle. They use beer in the bread they serve along with the food. We had two different kinds of bread. One light bread made with a Belgian blonde (very nice), and one dark bread made with Wesmalle Dubbel (excellent). You can ask about beer and food matching and get knowledgable suggestions from the staff. A sure stop during my next visit to Copenhagen, I will not hesitate to recommend Den Tatoverede Enke to anyone interested in quality meals and beers.
A little dark for really studying beer colour but that is the only take here.
Really interesting selection, and helpfull staff.

5 minutes walk from Kongens Nytorv Metro Station.
There is a small bar in the cellar and a restaurant on the 1st floor.
It possible to view a list of beers on tap on their homepage, but they dont change much and they do have a nice selection on bottles as well which is not shown.
If you are using the restaurant they offer you a special beer menu.
I haven’t tried it yet but the restaurant smells fantastic!
On their homepage the tap list is located under "Bar - Click here to see menu card".
Mainly belgian brews but I have also encountered a few Närke and Dugges beer on tap. Staff is professional and friendly yet somewhat distanced compared to the general danish friendlyness. Place is not exactly cosy but it’s located very close to allot of the more touristy areas in Copenhagen
not bad at all, had the pleasure of eating there and really enjoyed the evening. not much atmosphere but probably better when busier. good selection if you are a fan of belgian beers.would recommend a night out here.
