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.

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

Ate here with wife and daughter, on the recommendation of my older brother who lived in Copenhagen for several years. Brother so suggested specific dishes to order, and we followed his recommendation s to the letter. The best. Traditional open faced sandwiches with the freshest ingredients. Service impeccable and friendly. Of course eating at Tivoli in spring is the most... More

Well to find out where to eat we make friends with locals and ask them. This one came up, in Danish it translates as "The Ditch". Yes you have to pay to get into Tivoli (£10) and yes you can find other restaurants elsewhere that do not require that. That said, here you will find well cooked authentic Danish cuisine... More

Ive been to Grøften a couple of times now, and every time its a delight. Go there for the traditional danish food, which you will not find better anywhere else! Sure you can go modern, but lets be honest, its not traditional, and when it comes to danish food, traditional is often better!

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

Traditions, atmosphere, good service, good food, etc. This is as much Copenhagen as it gets! You will not be diossapointed. And surprisingly good and nice service despite it being Denmark. We were served a "Christmaslunch" which in Denmark is more in a fluid form then sturdy. A plaet with Danish toppings were servced -a s always a pleasure (but someone... More
