Portions may not be large, but most visitors will not feel hungry leaving Groften, especially since additional potatos can be added for free. Had a nice dinner here in Tivoli at Saturday, and as always a nice atmosphere with a lot of visitors.

We had 10 people dinner here. Dont get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this restaurant but it would never be my choice. Perfect for large tourist groups. Fast and good service. Food was nice without beeing great. Reminds me of the german beer drinking halls:-)

First, you must pay to enter Tivoli Gardens to eat at the restaurant (and any other restaurant) in Tivoli. Was here with a group and had reservations and was served a typical smorgasbord. Lots of sampling of typical Danish dishes. The Danes in the group loved the pickled herring- I think it is an acquired taste. Really liked the rest... More

We chose this restaurant because it was the oldest one in Tivoli and served Danish food. The person at the door said that if we could eat in 1 1/2 hour, we could have one of the nicer tables in front. These tables were all booked for later. He said the ones in back were dark. We accepted the challenged.... More

We were very jet lagged when we dined here, and we appreciated the ambience & friendly service we received. The servings were large, but we weren't able to judge the quality since the entrees were very salty. It was a bustling place, but the server took the time for a bit of conversation and made us feel welcome. We'd give... More

I was twice at "Grøften" this spring/summer and was not disappointed. The restaurant is the oldest one in Tivoli and specializes on traditional Danish food. The selection of herrings and Fish was excellent! The staff is Professional and attentive.

We love to go here. The ambience is the old traditional Danish style (relaxed). The traditional Danish dishes with open sandwiches (smørrebrød) is what we really like here. I have never ordered their hot dishes, so I can't tell about them. It's usually a very busy place so staff is also very busy, either you have time to wait a... More

Two residents of Copenhagen recommended this restaurant for dinner. It is in the Tivoli Gardens, which was where we wanted to spend our evening. We were seated right away. We had potato soup and lamb with vegetables. Our server recommended both dishes and with good reason. Both were very good. Actually, the lamb was excellent. The gravy over the lamb... More

Busy and lively so you would think it had a good menu and good food so maybe I was unlucky. The veal I had was like rubber with burnt potatoes and very ordinary peas on the side. Salmon wasn't much better as a starter. I would not go back. Maybe the tourists are easily pleased...

We looked at all the restaurants in Tivoli Gardens and selected Groften as it's glassed in walls allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings while staying away from the evening chill. it was a wise move as the atmosphere, service and food were all very good. Nice European menu with a wide variety of selections. I had the... More
