We had lunch with friends. It has been a while since we were last here. Three of us had the "platte" which consisted of fish dishes and meat dishes for the Danish smorrebrød. I must say the food was expensive for what small amount we got. We have had better. The platte cost DKR195 Another friend ordered a flat white... More

Stopped for a quick lunch, and pleasantly surprised. Some of the best vegetarian dishes on our entire four week vacation (I have a daughter who is vegetarian). The rest of our meals were also good, and well presented. Service was very good, excellent setting, good value.

Saturday night on a hot summer night can be a challenge. We arrived at restaurant Grøften in Tivoli, and waited to be seated on our reserved table. It happend to in the smoking area, so we were asked to have a small walk in the beautiful garden and come back. When we returned we had a table on the Pergola,... More

We were two persons and we had "Smørrebrød". It was fresh and delicious. Not so huge pieces - we could eat 4 each, so that demonstrate that Grøften maybe could increase the size a bit, to our opinion. Prices further indicate it should be same size like many other good lunch restaurants with "smørrebrød" in Copenhagen - mostly the sizes... More

Nice ambiance, friendly and helpful staff, typical danish food, cozy, tasty food, you can feel very well, paying a average price for the meal. Inside tivoli gardens. Must go.

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
