The restaurant is located in the oldest building in Copenhagen. Gothic arches, constructed more than half a millennium ago, lend the restaurant its medieval atmosphere. In ancient Danish texts the building is called Wingaard or Mynthergordt, and as Kong Hans - King Hans - minted coins in Copenhagen, this vineyard was probably also the site of the city's first Royal Mint. What today is the cellar was then the ground floor. It must have been delightful, with a view of the Sound, islets and meadows. Three hundred years later H.C. Andersen lived under the roof of this house in Vingårdsstræde. In "Only a Minstrel" he writes about his small garret:" The view stretched over chimneys and roofs to the soaring church spire where the watchman patrolled. If the wealthy folk who lived beneath him on the first and ground floors had the whole of the merry street to themselves, he had the great vista of the heavens where the stars shone in the clear evening." In this very building H.C. Andersen wrote, "Love in Nicolai Tower".
