“A great Friday night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

My wife and I had a Friday night in Copenhagen and we wanted to eat seafood - but also wanted something a party feel. We got both! Excellent oysters - by far the best I have ever tasted. We also tried more or less everything on the menu. Everything was perfectly cooked with the finest ingredients. The staff is young and friendly but also observant. If you like seafood in a lively environment I send my highest recommendations.

“Indifferent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Loved this area of Copenhagen and would definitely return. The restaurant itself was very cool, it's layout and decor are rustic yet slick. The service was excellent...friendly, informative and attentive. The wine and cocktails were great and the prices are not untypical for a Copenhagen.

The food, the reason we went obviously, was just ok. The starters (razor clams, black roe and king prawn croquettes) were excellent, great flavours and super presentation.

The mussels which I had for my main we just bland. The bowl they were served in was too small and narrow which meant I didn't have any sauce or flavour until I got to the bottom.

The fish and chips my friends had was so small and just average.

I would come back, maybe to try some of the other fish dishes because we maybe played in a bit safe with our order.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Kodbyens Fiskbar was our first port of call on our visit to Copenhagen. Without a reservation on a Friday evening at about 8:30pm we were happy to be seated at the bar for some cocktails for about an hour before being ushered to another part of the bar to order food - allowing us to observe and soak up the local weekend atmosphere. We went for the main cod and hake dishes which were very good indeed when washed down with a bottle of Italian friuli. This is a trendy spot offering decent food and drinks with a very buzzy atmosphere.

“A bit disappointing...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Went here for a birthday dinner with a friend on a Saturday evening,got to the restaurant at 9:30 for a reservation and waited about 10 minutes before being noticed by anyone.When we were finally seated it took quite a while for someone to come and hand out a menu.The overall atmosphere was very loud and the speaker above our table was blaring making it pretty difficult to talk until we had finished a bottle of wine and we were sufficiently lubricated.The oysters were very fresh and tasty as were the blue mussels.For mains we had the hake and cod which were delicious however I found a small piece of plastic wrapping in the accompanying wheat salad,the plates were also not cleaned properly as there were marks from the dishwasher.Overall service was pretty poor for the price,atmosphere was much more of a cocktail bar than a restaurant and food was very good.
