Excellent food, service and surroundings

The setting along the canals creates a perfect feeling of Copenhagen, still quiet and secluded. Very cheerfull service and excellent food and wine

Pretends to be the place for fine dining in Copenhagen. Food is good (small menu with limited choice), but more expensive than what it should be given the quality. Wine in particular is ridiculously expensive. Most of the staff seemed to be in training, nice and friendly but a bit inexperienced. Two glitches at the end of the dinner that... More

On our last night in Copenhagen, my husband and I decided we would like to go somewhere for a special meal. As we couldn't get a reservation at Noma LOL, we asked the Nimb Hotel for a recommendation. Kanalen was it! Recently renovated due to some water damage. We were greeted at the door and whisked in to set at... More

I was taken there for a group business dinner, and it was fanastic. The menu was fixed, and the waiters kept bringing small dishes throughout the evening. Very delicious food and cozy renovated restaurant on the canal for a beautiful setting. Service was also excellent.

Return visit for lunch following a dinner about a year ago. Restaurant refurbished since then and still has an excellent view of quiet canal. Lunch menu excellent with amazing flavours for the Ox tail consome and superb herring open sandwiches. Well worth a visit - a pleasant walk along the side of the canals

Attended here with a large group. Wine list was great and service was good. Starters and desserts we're delicious but the main which was beef tenderloin was a bit gamey. Had an enjoyable evening and setting was very pleasant. Would happily return.

My wife and I have visited the Restaurant Kanalen many times during the last twenty years. First of all, it is situated in the most wonderful location on the edge of the canal (kanalen). Last time we were there, we could sit outside on a wonderful summerday. The staff gave us a polite and friendly reception, and we were shown... More

This is a charming restaurant in a lovely part of Copenhagen.The staff are friendly and professional serving exquisite food in a Noma-esque fashion. We went for the ala carte taster menu and chose 4 courses each.

Had a business diner this week. Very nicely surprised by the exceptional quality of the food, the wines and the services. Combining Danish with French cuisines menu included some really fine plates, married with adequate white and red wines. Particularly appreciated the Ghanian fawl and the cheese selection. Great culinary experience!
