The only restaurant in Tivoli that was not full - that should have been a warning... We were refused to share a starter - could not order one dish and get two plates.!? We then chose the tomato soup. This was cold so we called the waiter and it took 10 minutes to serve us new portions. The pizza was... More

My girlfriend and I attempted to go here for a drink and a light snack. On entering the cafe, I asked the girl if we could have a drink. She simply walked off without even making eye contact with us. She went to the bar a few feet away from us to speak to a colleague before coming back to... More

Whilst visiting the Tivoli gardens we decided to dine at the Ultimo which is located in the grounds.It was very busy in the gardens that night and the clue should have been that we were able to get a table without much trouble - other visitors obviously knew better! My wife and I chose the tomato soup starter which was... More

Cafe Ultimo is located inside Tivoli gardens, which makes it automatically magical. The food was OK, quite average and the service was very good. You can do better in Copenhagen

I didn't even get past the front door of this place, because the 'welcome' b***h was as rude as they come. I asked for a table for two, she directed me to a table for six that still had the leftovers from previous diners, despite the fact that there were countless other tables available. When I asked to move she... More

Ultimo is an Italian restaurant by the lake inside Tivoli Gardens, & you do pay a premium for being inside the park (which you have already paid to get into!). We had affettati (mixed antipasti) to start, followed by linguine with black truffles. Both were good, but not outstanding. Service was a bit mixed. The waitress, while friendly and initially...

Sat outside with a nice view over Tivoli. Good service from a Swedish waitor. The kids ate pasta which was tasty. We had pizza but they were not good and we couldnt finish. Because the restaurant is situated inside the park the prices are higher than normal.

The title says it all. The waiter was very nice, but the food was just OK. We only had pizzas so obviously we didn't sample much on the menu.

I am surprised by some of the negative comments. Went there on a warm evening and had an excellent meal after a stroll around Tivoli. Maybe becuase it was warm the atmosphere was good. We had a set menu and the food was very good. Had a huge piece of nicely cooked beef. Waiter was very helpful and explained the... More

A nice place within the Tivoli compound in Copenhagen. The food is good, but we were not too impressed by the service level. A small tip: When the temperature goes up, the more important to serve the rose-wine chilled (and not room tempered)...

Description
Café Ultimo is an Italian restaurant in historic Tivoli Gardens in the heart of Copenhagen. The restaurant can trace its origins back to 1883, with the construction of a circular open-air dance floor near Stadsgraven, the city's reservoir. In 1923, the building was redeveloped into a tea room, and the characteristic columns added, giving the building just the right nostalgic feel. The columns are still there, but cakes have been replaced by exquisite Italian-inspired food, using only the finest ingredients. 21st century design has also made its mark on the building, and Café Ultimo is now a bright space with light coming in from all sides and through a large skylight, creating a unique atmosphere.

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.
