As part of a long weekend in Copenhagen we decided to take a friend out for a late birthday treat at Marv & Ben (Marrow and Bone). We plumped for the tasting menu (5 course) that comes with a different wine with each course. It is not cheap but we all agreed that it was a really good meal, and... More

If you have the chance to get a table you should try this restaurant. Food is really surprising. Staff is great. And the whole experience is kind of unique even if a bit strange. Don't miss to look through the kitchen window how the staff prepares the food. Menu has only a few options... And wine menu is pretty interesting.

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant last Saturday night. The staff could not have been more helpful or informative. We were a group of 7 and had a small room to ourselves which was lovely. We were offered a tasting menu if we wished or any combination of the existing menu. The food was delicious and we all... More

This place was recommended to us by local colleagues as a modern Danish kitchen. So, if it is a tradition Danish food, I am definitely NOT a fan of Danish cuisine...

We visited this restaurant as a large group of 33, and I suspect the restaurant has little experience with so large groups. And that they do not like large groups. We had preordered food, and most of the group had chosen a three course dinner. As starter the whole group had the course called Old traditions (pickled Cod, celery, coriander... More

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.
