We had a 3 course meal + the 3 glass wine package. The scallops were very exciting, a good balance of flavours and textures. The citrus "burned" in our mouths throughout the meal. The main course was duck hearts. A full-flavoured dish, and tasted great, but could have had another element to it to make it just as exciting as... More

Interesting dishes, but not all that good, really. The first dish of pickled scallops and kohlrabi had a rather dominating flavour, that overshadowed the following dishes. The hake with almond sauce and unripe pickled elderberries was quite nice. The duck hearts with mushrooms and pepper were not so nice. All good and well to have nose-to-tail eating, but four duck...

We visited as a group of 6 and all ordered a 4 course meal. Not one member of our party enjoyed a single dish offered. We are generally adventurous with our choices so were happy to try new flavours. However, the raw scallops had no redeeming features, the crab unpalatable, the beef frankly inedible and the duck hearts a challenge.... More

Marv & Ben was recommended to me by a friend who lives in Copenhagen. It did not dissapoint. The service was personable, relaxed and fun. The food looked and tasted beautifully. The wine pairings were excellent. A truly memorable evening. I would definitely visit again.

I've been here twice and was wowed both times. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming, yet the food amazing. Both the kitchen and service have high ambitions, and I was not disappointed. We came to celebrate my mothers birthday, and she's not very used to classy restaurants. However, our server was extremely attentive and took the time to explain things... More

Marv & Ben is an intimate and seemingly popular restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen. The menu is modern and fresh and you choose from two to five courses and there is a wine set menu to go with it. Quality is good and the service is decent. Overall a good dining experience.

I had 18 hours in copenhagan before leaving for the states and one meal to enjoy. Marv & Ben accommodated for our large group and we chose to go with the chef's 5 course menu. I ordered one bottle of red for the table and it paired very well with each of the dishes. I wish I had ordered another... More

The restaurant offers a casual yet romantic atmosphere. The Service staff was not pretentious and very non-intruding, which we felt was a good thing. We took the 5 course meal, enjoyed each wine that came with each course and had a really nice evening. Food was very good, portions just right. Would go there again.

Friendly service, beautifully presented food in unpretentious setting but their mediocre food quality leaves the entire experience a lot to be desired. We had a 3 course dinner with associated 3-course wine and a bottle of water. Our dinner came at a bill of 1400Kr, which is not expensive by Copenhagen standard; their food is cheap but their wines are... More
