Yesterday I decided it was time for me to get my TIVOLI family reality check and the only way to do so is by visiting Restaurant Grøften - and no way I can translate - suffice to say that it is right inside the TIVOLI Gardens to the left, past the Pantomime Theater with an entrance on the ground floor,...

I ended up eating off the board and having a beer during my dining experience here. The service was pretty good with recommendations as to what to try. The meatball dish in particular was my favorite part of the meal.

This was our intro to this Danish specialty. We went for lunch and had a great waiter who advised us on the menu selection and on how to enjoy the delicacy. We had various types of bread and both seafood and meat toppings - delicious! Also, we chose from a small selection of good wines-by-glass. This was our first experience... More

We were here diningas a group, so the food wasn't that good. We were served some typicall danish dishes, which looked terrible, but actually didn't taste that bad. It was really crowded, so we waited a lot.

Enjoyed another fantastic experience at Groften in Tivoli Gardens. Service was great, food top notch (best Wiener schnitzel ever) and atmosphere a lot of fun. You can't go wrong here for a truly fun Danish dining experience.

Typical Danish restaurant. Great food, service and setting. Loved the Tivoli Gardens. Open-faced sandwiches were excellent. Really fun place.

Decent food and quick service at fair prices but a strong example of Denmark's ancient smoking laws - expect to be enveloped in cigarette stench.

This restaurant is located inside the main entrance to Tivola. It offers a typical Scandinavian menu. The sea bass and the lobster was very good. The service was good until it came time for the bill. The dress is very casual since it is in an amusement park. We would o back.

After walking around Tivoli, we settled on Grøften for dinner. The food was very good. I had the lamb while my companion had the salmon. The food was perfect! The off putting part was when it came time to pay. The waiter was very aggressive. After giving us the bill, he bought over the portable credit card machine and blatantly... More

We have for many years visited grøften because it guaranteed excellent food. It isn't cheep but you can't have good and cheap in tivoli. At the most recent visit we were disappointed with the open sandwich "smørrebrød" we always have. The size was smaller and meat was overcooked. I have learned there is a new "operator" - sad to see... More

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
