Thanks, Odin. They are all very expensive; I don't know how people that live in Scandinavian countries can afford it. Maybe salaries are high.

Salaries are high (compared to most places in the US) and social services are free. Also, people live in much smaller houses and except for the wealthy often have a simpler life style (not driving around in $40,000 SUVs that get 10 mpg).

Social services are paid for out of taxes. Nothing is free. None of the people I know in DK live in smaller houses, not even their summer cottages are small. Small compared to houses in the US perhaps.

Not all the restaurants I mentioned are expensive, Bof & Ost has a lunchtime herring buffet which is good value @ DKK98, lunch is until 4pm. Skovehoved hotel has a set menu certain nights inc wine. It's less expensive to eat out at lunchtime. Also bakeries sell open sandwiches and other savouries. If you venture out of CPH to a fishing village you might get fresh smoked fish - another less expensive eating option. And if you go to a shopping mall, you will find more choices eg fisketorevet. And there is always the Pølse (hotdog) stand , pizza & kebab places.

Thanks, Odin. I will consider your suggestions for every day eating. We try to go to one or two fancy/gourmet places in each place we visit.

www.telegrafen.dk, www.torvehallerne.dk, for open sandwiches, www.kanalkafeen.dk, www.tivolihallen.dk. For our amusementpark Tivoli come after you have eaten. We have a system if you can manage that the site is only in Danish. www.earlybird.dk. One third off the price when they have empty tables for the same day.
