Worth a shot

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.

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

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!

We have had several meals in this restaurant and it is absolute worth a visit. It is located in a nice neighborhood next to the canal and beautiful old buildings.

According to my taste, I would have given the rating Excellent. New flavours, new taste, very innovative and curious. Nice place to sit, with a view on the Kanal, My friend was not ready to appreciate this new type of cooking. He is more for conventional cooking. The best way to make your own opinion: go there and try it!!!

Visited this place for lunch on a weekday around 2:30 PM for lunch. Had called ahead of time about opening hours and was told we would be fine as long as we arrived before 3 PM. Well we did but the waiter still rushed us through the meal. We found out they close for lunch at 3:45PM .... they should... More
