Where many locals dine

We dined here during our visit to Copenhagen, on the advice of our hotel concierge. He made us a reservation on a Thursday evening and advised us that it was always busy with good food, but not fine dining. The restaurant is in the Tivoli Gardens, and quickly became full of people who were largely... read more

We did not know this was one of Denmark's most famous restaurants when we happened in on a trip to Tivoli, however we were so pleased to spend an afternoon dining on spectacular Wienerschnitzel, Danish beer and other local dishes in a beautiful setting with wonderful, friendly service. We walked out with full bellies and happy hearts!

We were only going to be in Copenhagen for one dinner and since we also wanted to check out Tivoli Gardens, we decided to do dinner in the park. Tivoli and the connected Nimb hotel (where we were staying) have quite a number of restaurants between them. I researched the menus and reviews in advance and finally decided on the... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We did not have a reservation, but were there around 5pm and were told we could have a table provided we were finished by 7pm. Not a problem at all we thought - well, service isn't exactly like in the US when they tell you they need your table. We finished right at 7pm,... More

This place is visited by many Danes, when in Tivoli gardens. They serve traditional Danish food from open faced sandwiches to Skipper Labskovs, which I would suggest you try. It is stunningly good

This restaurant is located in Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen. We noticed some local folks waiting to get in when we were looking for somewhere to eat. We were seated promptly and chose our meal. A Danish couple was seated next to us and said they frequently ate there, and told us the name of the dish. There was a free concert... More

Enjoyed trying some authentic Danish dishes at this very busy restaurant. Great service and good choices, especially non-port options. Perhaps a bit pricey but it is located in beautiful Tivoli, so that was to be expected. $150 for family of 5 to eat dinner (kids sharing meal). We enjoyed it.

A deceptively large restaurant within the Tivoli gardens. Good welcome and competent service, given the crowded nature of the operation. Food was fine - better than average for a pleasure park context with some seasonal and local items available.

Try the Teaterplatte or Luxusplatte to taste some different Danish dishes such as herrings, salmon, meatballs, smorrebrod. Too small non smokers room. As in other restaurant, children are very welcome and entertained.

You are seated in Tivoli Gardens at the one restaurant that bespeaks tradition and old Copenhagen. I dined on a platter of chilled pickled herring and fish with assorted sauces of curry, sour, sweet and more. A cheese and bread assortment followed with bottles of fine beer. And it ended with a superbly brewed cup of coffee. It may not... More
