We asked locals were to eat for authentic food of Denmark. Everyone pointed to Groftens in the Tivoli Gardens. You do have to pay admission to the Tivoli Gardens, so go early and enjoy the grounds. The menu is a little overwhelming so we asked the waiter to recommend authentic dishes. He recommended the pickled herring trio (delicious and something... More

Ate there as it is in the Tivoli Gardens, and a traditional, authentic,historical Danish restaurant. After recovering from the shock of the 99 Kroner entrance fee to the Tivoli Gardens we made our way to the restaurant and were given a table under the glass dome and ordered Carlsberg Brown followed by a traditional fish/prawn and Danish caviar dish accompanied...

My husband actually booked this restaurant on line for our arrival night into Copenhagen before a cruise. The fact that he saw a show segment on "No Reservations" w/Anthony Bourdain, made this a must visit! We requested a window seat & our server was one of the best. She helped us maneuver the menu as we are vegetarians/pescetarians. There was... More

This is a Danish classic, hands down! Yes, it's slightly expensive and yes, it can seem crowded, but if you want an authentic Danish experience you have to go to Groften. Make reservations, get the smørrebrød and prepare to be Danish for the evening ;)

Only order 9 if you're very, very hungry. Like every restaurant in Denmark or Norway, this one is expensive, but we wanted one splurge and this one was recommended to us if we wanted to try authentic Danish food. It was well worth it. We had too much food to finish, took the cheese, bread and fruit with us--not a... More

I like good restaurants a lot and I like expensive restaurants that offer you something for your money. This is not one of them.Lobster bisque very watery, not creamy at all. Like instant soup with lobster flavor. Chicken skewers for kids, not well cooked and dry. Caesar salad chicken with very intense chicken flavor. Grilled salmon ok.

Visited Tivoli Gardens and went here for dinner. It was packed which we took to be a good sign. The service was very good indeed, warm and welcoming and very polite. We ordered salmon and steak which were excellent and the desserts were of a high standard as well. This is a very good restaurant, quality service and food. But... More

Nice sit down restaurant inside Tivoli Gardens. Party of 10, patio seating outside. Great service from the waiter. I ordered the Wienerschnitzel. My wife had the seafood platter (poached and fried fish, shrimp). Also had an assorted dessert to share. Our first "authentic" Danish meal. Very good quality, a pleasant surprise given that this was inside an amusement park! Highly... More
