“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went there for lunch over the weekend. The food was outstanding as was the service. We had the three hour tasting menu together with the wine paring and it was awesome. Very creative food and perfect presentation.

Highly recommended. Gives Noma a run for its money.

“Very interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went there for lunch as dinner was fully booked.
We went for shorter testing menu with wines, which lasted 2.5 hours or so.
It was simple fantastic. Every little course is a new discovery, both in taste and presentation.
Nice touch: they invited us to kitchen to have desert while watching how kitchen works.
It is expensive even by Copenhagen standards, but really worth it!

“Yum, in Copenhagen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Had lunch today at Geranium. It was an absolutely fabulous experience....very inventive and every dish is a true discovery. I had read about Scandinavian cuisine, and this place delivered on everything I was expecting. The highlight was smoked turbot and moss. Yes, moss....

This is the type of place for the curious eater. Every dish was an experience in itself.

While they only have 1 Michelin star, they clearly deserve more. Service and ambiance was also excellent. Bravo.

“An experience - but very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This place is an experience - dont come here for large portions or with a large appetite but come here for innovative really different food. The place doesnt look of much from the outside (its placed very strangely in side a football stadion building a bit out side the city center), but in side its very nice and exclusive. Very nice ambience and a nice view.
The portions are small and very light but it tastes wonderfull and you can't make this food at home! The service is very good all though for the price you would expect all the waiters to know all about the food - there was a girl who didnt know the details but she and the rest of the staff were very nice.
So absolutely worth a visit if you are a foodie but bring a very large purse - I think this restaurant is the most expensive in Copenhagen.

“better than noma: maybe a little less innovative, but far more refined”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had a wonderful evening thanks to Magnus and his team. Quality was high from start till the very end, wines where perfectly paired and service was top notch.

I especially liked the oyster-iron-fish roe combination.

Geranium definitely plays in the same league as noma, but their approach is slightly different. While Redezepi and his team at noma are constantly looking for new techiques and ingredients, at Geranium they consolidate these methods and try to refine them further.

Both are interesting and serve great dishes, but in terms of sheer quality, my vote goes to Geranium!
