Very good food, but expensive

Came here with friends, one of whom is Danish. They had been once before and were eager for us to try it. The setting is great, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, on the banks of the canal. The dining room is modern and comfortable. We chose the set menu (scallops with... read more

This restaurant was recommended to me by a colleague who had attended a business dinner there recently. It did not disappoint. The restaurant is set in a lovely location on the bank of a canal where you can watch swans with their young in the evening light and boat owners return with their provisions for an evening sail. The room... More

We got lost on our walk in Copenhagen, mainly because there was a bridge on a tourist map that was actually only half-built. While taking an alternative route we accidentally came across this cozy restaurant by the canal. It is shaped like canal boat with nice wooden furniture. Michelin Guide sign by the door told that they have done something... More

I was taken here by a local colleague and really enjoyed it. The setting is just a few streets down from the hustle and bustle, and you can still fee the city vibe, but is actually nice and relaxed overlooking the canal. We needed a couple of dishes each from the lunch menu plus the breads and a dessert to... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended Kanalen and got us a reservation - it was an incredible dining experience. The service was good and the food amazing. Kanalen is located on a canal and is small and intimate. This is a special occasion place and was romantic. The menu is Danish with a modern twist. Our server told us to... More

Concierge at hotel recommended this restaurant for dinner. Located right next to a canal, romantic setting both inside or outside. Service was quick, always with a smile. Food. Well, food was absolutely out of this world. Incredibly well prepared and presented. Flavors were amazing. This has been one of the best meals I have had in my entire life, definitely... More

The restaurant is on the side of a canal surrounded by houseboats, which gave us a lovely view, and we absolutely loved our meal at Kanalen! We'd found the restaurant on a list of unusual locations to eat in Copenhagen, and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive, without being over the top, and brought us extra small... More

We selected this restaurant based on many favorable TA reviews. Unfortunately for us our experience was less than pleasurable. As noted by other reviewers, this restaurant has a limited and somewhat unique menu. On the June 2015 night we visited, the Chef's 3 course menu was scallops, followed by Goose as the main dish followed with either cheese or a... More

The restaurant is beautifully located by Christinhavns canal. Its on the Michelin guide as a place worth dinning. And it is. The food is really excellent and the Wine selection amazing. The service is nice, but not super attentive. The service started out a bit pretentious serving water as if it was Golden drops of nectar. Fortunately this didnt go... More
