I was visiting CPH for business and looking for a place to eat well and work. Lele is absolutely perfect. CPH is not a cheap city, so bargains are not that at hand. I opted for a full meal, a vegetable tofu curry with rice. Great portions and more than enough for a good lunch. I asked for some water... More

We only stopped off for drinks here but the decor and atmosphere was lovely. The drinks were expensive but I had a cocktail and my husband had a gin and tonic. The bill was roughly £21:for two drinks but my cocktail was very unusual , I have never had a cocktail with chilli and coriander in it and it was... More

The food was amazing, I mean close to top rating, five stars, but the service was slow, as in really slow and bordering on incompetent. First the good stuff: the food is delicious, the ingredients are really good, and everything just seems perfectly prepared and balanced. We chose the 12 course menu, which I would highly recommend, so we were... More

If it weren't for Lele we might have gone hungry on New Year's Eve. Even so, they were only open for takeaway and all their desserts had been pre-ordered. But still, it was a decent meal at a fair price.

Our expectations were high; we had heard that this was the best vietnamese restaurant in Copenhagen (and possibly beyond), we were dining with great friends - and we were hungry. The initial impression was great ambiance and decor, but arrogant service. This was quickly overcome when a more mature/profesional waiter stepped in and really went out of his way to... More

We went to Lele for a friends' night out during a one week vacation in Copenhagen. The Vesterbro branch doesn't look as large a space as it actually is while experienced from the interior, and the nice decor is really just the beginning. We took the smaller sharing menu for two people. It was served by one one, in a... More

We ate here as a largish group 7 in total including one vegetarian. We had one of the set meals for 6 of us and some extra dishes for my vegetarian colleague. The set menu came course by course, well cooked and served with enough for everyone at each course. The Vegetarian had two courses one at the beginning and... More

I eat Vietnamese food frequently and am always happy when I get to try new dishes. I thought the variety of food was great, as well as the presentation and quality. Tasty!! When they learned I had a gluten allergy they were not only knowledgeable but super helpful in making substitutions so I could still have choices. I highly recommend... More

We tried the sharing menu (6 courses) and we found a couple of dishes really good but most of them quite average and very poor in quantity. Prices are very high, choice of wine between 40-50 Eur limited to few and not thrilling items. Moreover the restaurant is very noisy and we had to ask several times to get a... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
