When we, an American family, were brought to our table and realized we were seated in proximity to several large Danish family groups and heard no other languages beside Danish, I knew we had stumbled upon a find in Tivoli. Excellent Danish food in the heart of Tivoli, with Danish service. Come hungry, start with snaps and then follow with... More

This is one of the classic restaurants in Tivoli with a welcoming and very satisfying standard, a nice, relaxed atmosphere and a reminiscence of "the old days". You can choose to sit inside in different areas or outside, which can be a little chilly, even though most of the outside area is covered by a glass roof. On a cold... More

A reasonable place to eat if visiting Tivoli. The food is what you would expect for a restaurant in a popular amusement park. Overpriced for the quality. Rushed impersonal service.

This place has the best service ever. Selling snaps and extras is a real nice way. Good Danish food and good beer. One of the more classy places in Tivoli but well worth a visit.

This is probably the best restaurant in the Tivoli. Great food and great service. The waiters did a great job, food came fast and the kids got a free ice cream

It is crowded and noisy to be sure, but this place has a charming and energetic vibe! The food was artistically presented and very authentic to the area. We split several small plates allowing us an opportunity to sample more variety. Definitely a fun stop in Copenhagen!

We had dinner at the Groften. Our server was Dennis. He was extremely helpful in describing some of the dishes on the menu. The menus had English subtitles. I had the Danish Stew. It was not like I am use to in the states, but it was still a very good dish. The meat and veggies were in a very... More

If it is possible we try to get into restaurants what is not for tourists. We succeded. Here most of the visitors were locals, and the food was also delicious local Danish food.

We arrived in Copenhagen from our North American flight in the afternoon and were very tired and just wanted to find a place to experience an early dinner of Danish food. The folks at the Andersen hotel said that Groften would be the best place to go. Because it is in Tivoli Gardens, we were not too keen on paying... More
