Krebsegaarden stole the spotlight as my favorite memory from an amazing weekend in Copenhagen!
A tip - make a reservation as soon as you arrive in Copenhagen either in person or by phone! It is an intimate place and there is no rushing the patrons, so space is incredibly limited. Krebsegaarden is highly regarded and droves of potential customers were turned away during my visit since they didn't plan ahead.
The place is run by two eccentric soccer loving Norwegians with a passion for good food. The menu is inspired by the adjacent gallery but with a Scandinavian twist. While we were there the inspiration was Croatian as the gallery was displaying the work of Viktor Daldon. If you want a taste of Scandinavia cuisine don’t fear as some staples persist through the changing gallery. I highly recommend the bacalao, which is a recipe passed down by the chef’s grandmother. I would also suggest taking the taster-menu as you can try a wide range of delicious dishes, many of which are based on the plentiful fresh fish that are a mainstay of a good Scandinavian diet. To accompany your meal the restaurant attempts to expand your pallet by offering an eclectic range of wines from around the world, we tried wine from New Zealand, Spain and Washington State. If you still haven’t whet you appetite then you should try the crème caramel for dessert followed by a glass of akvavit as a perfect cap to your night. WARNING akvavit was designed for Vikings and is not for the casual drinker!
Krebsegaarden has very reasonable prices by Copenhagen standards. If you’re on a budget then eat sandwiches all week from the supermarket and splurge on one nice meal - that is what we did. Krebsegaarden will not disappoint! This was the best dining experience of my life. Thank you Mats and Carsten!
