Description: Krogs Fiskerestaurant has had an unsettled existence in recent years, with many different owners slowly but surely eroding the core concept at one of Copenhagen's most traditional restaurants. But now, Krogs is in the hands of people who take the grand old lady seriously. They have quietly spent the past 6 months in the kitchen to hit a culinary note that is uncompromisingly rooted in history, but also brings more than 100 years of Danish cuisine into the 21st century. From now on, Krogs Fiskerestaurant serves Danish classics with a personal touch - just no nonsense, honest food prepared from the best available ingredients. Their ambition is clear: offering the best seafood in the country, served in a pleasant and personal atmosphere - nothing more, nothing less.

“An old perfect restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2014

The restaurant is more than 100 year s old and you have the perception that inside nothing is changed. Perfect fish and mussels Cozy location on Gammel near Danish Parliament. Classic Danish cousine also if for Orson Wells was the Nordest restaurant of the French Cost.

“Fish in central Copenhagen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014

Lovely fish, cooked to perfection and nicely presented. A little bit on the pricey side, especially the wine. The restaurant looks almost as it did when it opened 104 years ago, which is nice. Located near Christianborg (Danish Parliament), but unfortunately also next to where one of the stations on the new Metro Circle Line is currently being build.

“Worse experience ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2014

I booked this restaurant because of all the good reviews people have left but it's all lies! Waited an hour for the starter and then another hour for the main. Waiter not friendly not helpful. Maybe it's because we didn't order wine, they didn't really want to serve us. They did treated the local customer quite well but not the tourist. So if you are tourist and plan to go don't ever try!!!!! You will regret! It basically end my trip very badly and I am super disappointed in their food as well as the service.

“Wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here at our last visit to Copenhagen. We were a bit late due to a delayed plane. No problem, the reservation was still there when we arrived 45 main late. The menu offers a good selection of dishes, mainly sea oriented of course. The wine list was nice too. Very friendly service. The food offers a balance between traditional cooking and a modern innovative kitchen. This goes very well with the lovely interior and high ceilings. Prices are very affordable. Highly recommended.

“Good meal and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

We went on a Sunday evening. The staff were friendly and attentive. Food was very good - we had the excellent fish soup, some of the largest mussels I've seen and some very good turbot. It's not cheap - we spent about £200 - but it was good value. Staff made one small mistake - sharing our wine with another table! We only found out about it when the staff brought a second (free of charge) bottle to us and explained.

Recommended.
