We both enjoyed the meal and the experience very much. The cellar venue is spacious, simple and elegant. The tastes are clean and simple and we appreciated the confidence the chef had to use the flavours of the foods rather than hide them with strong flavours. Table service is also good. Unfortunately we were really shocked and disappointed that they... More

Overall excellent meal and service. We had the smaller tasting menu which was more than satisfying. Service by what appeared to be chefs in addition to waitstaff was friendly and informative. A dining experience more than just a meal.

The food here is exquisite-- if you like new and unique flavors. The service, appropriate for its Michelin rating. The environs, an Art next in the basement of a palace type structure. The culinary scene in Denmark is exploding and AOC is part of this scene. What is it about Scandinavia and its cuisine? It shares with the world flavor... More

An amazing experience that one now expects from Danish fine dining - inventive and tantalizing food that engages the sight, smell, touch and taste. Excellent ambiance and faultless service. Any requests are accommodated; nothing is too much trouble. Superb gin and tonic. One leaves AOC fully sated and feeling like royalty. Go on - spoil yourself! you won't regret it.

If you want a good meal don't go here. If you want a great meal don't go here. If you want the culinary experience of a lifetime....THEN YOU MUST GO HERE!!

A | O | C was great! The service was nice, and the food was very good. Overall, it seemed a bit traditional for what I have come to expect from Michelin Starred restaurants. It was a really, really great meal, but it wasn't particularly experimental. The wine pairing could have been a bit more unusual, but the meal and... More

We came here for dinner with friends and I deliberately didn't look up the restaurant or look at the menu before hand as I want to take it all in during the visit and go in with an open mind. Two of us went all in and had the 9 courses with the 9 full glasses in the pairing menu... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
