Great food

Stumbled across Kanalen on a weekend break, worth going out of the way for. Great food and wine, lovely staff and nice ambiance. Recommend a visit.

Both the location, service, and food are excellent at this restaurant. Although it's not exactly cheap, the price to value ratio of this place is probably the best I've had in Copenhagen. The food was delicious. In addition to à la carte, they have a full taster menu, but also a smaller menu which varies from day to day, we... More

The place is located in a quiet area of the city, along a canal. The service is very nice. The food is excellent with quality ingredients. We were granted with two appetizers, the first one, even very good is probably not for everyone's taste : half duck heart with half cherry. We chose then oysters, a very surprising dish where...

This is the best dinner experience we have had in Copenhagen! Small delicious hors d'euvres, an excellent steak for me and perfectly cooked fish for my wife,very tasty chocolate cake with good coffee. We had a bottle of excellent wine. We were lucky to come early because we should continue to the opera, so we got the corner table by... More

What a find! Very close to Noma, we were walking back to the city centre after looking through the windows at Noma (couldn't book a table there!) and spotted this down a little side street next to a canal. What a find, thought it was slightly expensive at first, but the tasting menu was great. With the dessert written as... More

This was about my 4th trip to Copenhagen and I was meeting two colleagues, one a Dane and the other from England, for dinner. The restaurant is small enough to feel comfortable and homey, and is on a canal. At the suggestion of our Danish host, we had the 7 course meal with wine pairings. What a meal! Each course... More

This restaurant is fairly central and you can walk here from the local bus. We had eaten at Amass the night before, personally I felt the food here was better. The set menu was delicious, the service was perfect and the restaurant was full with a wedding party on a couple of tables. I'd return here like a shot. Better... More

Ate here in April and had a brilliant meal with excellent service: one of the best meals I have enjoyed in Copenhagen,. Things have gone seriously wrong since then. It was very sad, then, to return last week to find squabbling kitchen staff, a new chef, food quality vastly diminished. A new waitress was trying her best but without support... More
