Good value at the Tivoli

Visited Tivoli Gardens on a recent cold windy night. This was the only place with a reasonable atmosphere and a good menu. Not sure what it would be like in high season, but the lamb shank is really good.

Went twice to Groften during our 6 day stay in Kobenhavn. Had a great meal on both occasions. Excellent service rendered to us by Martin our waiter.

We ate at Groeften on our recent visit to Copenhagen. The restaurant is situated within Tivoli Gardens and is an oasis of calm. Do not plan to go on any park rides after your meal! The food was delicious and well served. We ordered the Luxus Platte between 2 people and we got a mountain of Danish foods, very well... More

We are here based on the recommendation of a Danish friend. There is a large selection to choose from, plus many choices of the traditional Danish open face sandwich. Service was excellent, and prices were reasonable for Denmark. Although we ate inside, it is designed to remove the walls for open air seating in good weather. This restaurant is located... More

Is my favorite place to eat in Tivoli and to take visitors after touring the park. Is always busy but you can walk in and get a table really fast. The best thing is that locals go there all the time :-) The food is classic Danish but cooked very well. Go for the Danish choices instead of the International... More

We arrived to find a queue but the greeter worked it very efficiently finding out table sizes needed and providing reassurance that it would only be a short wait. She even went to the trouble to make sure no one was waiting outside in the cold. Meal was traditional with quick service, very polite staff and very tasty.

Wonderful resturant. Food was good. But the service was the best! The managers Jøgen and Bruno are the best people! Cannot wait to go back this summer!
