I visited Grøften in August 2015 with my English Family incl. my 3 teenage grandchildren for lunch. We were disappointed with the food we were served. It was unexciting and badly combined. My husband and I ordered a platte with two different types of herrings which was served with a beetroot salad on the plate. We were both disappointed with... More

A perfect place to seek respite from the crowds at the park, this restaurant is a quiet oasis for families or individuals seeking a good Danish meal and the chance to relax in the quaint atrium. They serve a nice variety of Danish foods and there is plenty on the menu for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. We enjoyed the... More

Set in Tivoli Gardens so we weren't expecting anything too amazing. However we enjoyed a relaxed and long lunch, which was tasty if not what you might term good value. However our waitress made all the difference - she was fun, friendly, helpful and attentive without being ever present. Of all the offerings in the gardens we were glad we... More

We didn't know where to dine when we visited the Tivoli Gardens. My wife started speaking with a gentleman while I waited at an ATM. He was local and suggested that this was the best place in the Tivoli to try local food; that is the Danish open face sandwich. We took his advice and were very satisfied. The food... More

If you need a restaurant inside of Tivoli (and don't mind paying the fee to get in), this is an option. The food is OK, nothing special. The location, right next to the Peacock Theater, is excellent. Sit under the glass "outside" for the nicest experience.

The famous restaurant is located inside the amazing Tivoli Gardens initially named as "The Theatre Cafe" The restaurant has a friendly menu with English subtiltles so it was easy for us to order a variety of sandwiches and Carlsberg beer. The service was good but our waiter forgot my french fries. Otherwise, I consider the meal prices as fair and... More

When we, an American family, were brought to our table and realized we were seated in proximity to several large Danish family groups and heard no other languages beside Danish, I knew we had stumbled upon a find in Tivoli. Excellent Danish food in the heart of Tivoli, with Danish service. Come hungry, start with snaps and then follow with... More

This is one of the classic restaurants in Tivoli with a welcoming and very satisfying standard, a nice, relaxed atmosphere and a reminiscence of "the old days". You can choose to sit inside in different areas or outside, which can be a little chilly, even though most of the outside area is covered by a glass roof. On a cold... 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.
