Classy. And a feast for the taste buds.

A nice restaurant with a good selection of wine and a chef that has lots of fun in the kitchen. This is the place to be amazed of the kitchen skills and the chefs use of the produces of the day.

Had been looking forward to testing this Restaurant, which I had read many positive reviews of. The Staff was friendly, but clearly instructed by the Chef's and not very knowledgeable. We had the set menu with Wine, and it seemed that the fact that the wine was ecological was more important than the taste and match with the food. The... More

Lots of interesting 'small' plates here, delicate flavours and very well presented - the venison tartare was my favourite! Only small issue is that the dishes were almost too small, not sure it was really value for money.

We came across this restaurant unexpectedly and we were overwhelmed by the quality of every component of our meal from the bread and butter to the wine and cheese at the end. The portions were not large but the brilliant flavours of every dish more than made up for the lack of quantity. Simply divine.

Went here for a Saturday evening dinner with my husband, and was disappointed. Not the best quality ingredients, the dishes lacked interest and our waitress was lovely but received abrupt and fairly abrasive service from our waiter. Considering the cost it was not what we expected. If you're a food lover would highly recommend Pony and Radio instead.

Went there for dinner with my friend. It has good location as it is very central near the shopping strip. The food was good not as great as Pony's but overall still good. They have an interesting concept of having multiple starters for a meal instead of the usual starter meals dessert. Staff was polite. Price point was on the... More

Had an "Evening at Marv&Ben" menu with 5 courses and matching wine. Food, and wine is very good. Service is professional and friendly. Nice atmosphere. A pity that fine dining once in a while lack in volume. More on the plates and it's a 5.

Amazing food and wine paring! This is a restaurant for food lovers.4-5 course meal (100kr per dish) with wine (about 100 per glas). Great atmosphere, unpretencious, fantastic quality. Good value!

Singularly one of best restaurant meals I have eaten. This is fine dining without pretension and we opted for the tasting menu which gave us 5 courses; each paired with a different wine (we also snuck in a cheese course). I won't list what we ate as it carries preconceptions of taste (in both senses of the word) but rest... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
