Decent fast food in a pirate ship inside Tivoli Gardens

This restaurant is a good choice within Tivoli Gardens for a fairly quick lunch or dinner. It is inside a pirate ship. Service is kind of slow, but Copenhagen seems to move at a slower pace than Americans are accustomed to, so its not much different than anywhere else. The food is fresh, tastes... read more

Absolutely appalling. We went as a family of four at the end of a long afternoon in Tivoli. We were presented with a mix and match menu of overcooked cold rice or mixed grain, undercooked chicken sticks, frozen meatballs or pulled beef and sticky or BBQ sauce. The presentation was terrible. The menu was awful. The food was badly cooked.... More

150 DKK for something tasting like its made by an 16 year old student trying to cook his first meal ever. On top of these the inside dining room had maximum heating turned on even if it was mid summer, and the service was poor poor poor.......... Don't waste your money here.

Setting was brilliant with authentic pirate interiors but less choice for vegetarians. Service was quick and people were friendly. The pomme de frites was delicious

OK, the only reason we ended up here was that we had booked a table for 20 people at Tivoli's second story burger place (I've forgotten its name - Woodhouse burger or some such?), and arriving there (with 20 people) found that they'd "forgotten" our reservation. That burger place found us a room on the pirate ship for us. So,... More

It was unique eating on a ship but the food was below par. My friends both ordered chicken dishes with were undercooked (pink) on the outside. It was like they had been microwaved. They asked to get a fresh plate and the same happened again. Plus I got charged for having tap water. However my fish and cous cous was... More

Hmmm.. Concept is there but the food in general either tasteless or to spicy for kids. Service is good though nothing to write home about. Prices too expensive for what you get. Wont take my daughters there again.

Great place to go with kids...but don't go there without kids. Very good and healthy food for children and extremely childfriendly food and waiters. Ups sorry pirates :-)

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
