Description: Gastronomic Fairy Tales – Our philosophy is to share our stories and emotions – Just like in the fairy tales you will never know what to expect. In tune with the season and the raw materials available to us at the time, we will present a string of finely crafted surprises and organic impressions at your table.“Food is a way for me to communicate emotions and tell stories. To reach people and move them. It can be technical or powerful, but only works when vulnerability is present. Taking people on a gastronomic journey around the palate and playing with the senses to really move them. The elements of nature in a series of organic impressions and tales transformed onto your plate.” - Jakob Mielcke

“Good food at large sum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Went with the coworkers for Xmas party dinner. Although disappointed in the location they put us in, the dinner is undeniably good and innovative. Very patient and nice service as well. If I could afford it I'd love to go back.

“An excellent gastronomical experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went to Mielcke & Hurtigkarl for my husband's birthday and had the tasting menu. The meal itself lasted about 3h30 - but everything went very quickly. I lost count of how many courses we had, but every single one tasted superb.

As we weren't drinking that night, the waitress very kindly offered us a "special juices" tasting menu. All the juices were produced by the restaurant with their own produce and we had a total of 6 different drinks. It was great and something we have never had in a restaurant before!

The service was superb. The staff were very attentive and friendly, always keeping an eye to make sure everything was going well.

We had a great time and this was certainly one of the best gastronomical experiences we've ever had.

“Great wines, some interesting dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The meal featured some dishes that got mixed reactions from our crew - namely a red deer tartare that I liked and the others didn't - but overall very high quality. The highlights were the Asian inspired appetizers (Vietnamese pancakes and Peking duck) as well as a delicious dover sole served with lemon salt. Biodynamic wine pairings were unmissable and probably even better than the meal itself. One of our group took the vegetarian option and sometimes we were a bit puzzled as to why she got a different dish (did the apple ice cream have some sneaky meat in it that we didn't know about?)

This kind of thing usually doesn't bother me but I did think the decor was a bit odd, especially with the design reputation that the Danes have. The ceiling featured a Swarovski crystal explosion and the walls had leaves on them that looked like they were stick ons from Bed Bath and Beyond. Still definitely worth a visit!
