The restaurant is really tiny and I would suggest to make a reservation. The menu is inexistent, you get what they have. You can choose between the full menu (selection of starters, main course and dessert) or choose just one starter and the main course, no other combination is allowed. The customer service is not great at all. The explanation... More

When our reservation at Noma's sister restaurant 108 got burnt (literally! they called saying they had to close due to fire) a friend living in the city recommended Famo and all 7 of us were glad we got to dine here. Menu was small, some of us had the 7 course set menu while others went ala carte. But basically... More

From the moment we arrived till the minute we left a nice experience. We had the set six course meal and wow it was good. A great price for just excellent food. The staff are knowledgable and gave great guidance with wine and the menu. Certainly worth a visit

You should be aware of that you have not much choice regarding food in this restaurant. They only offer a 4-course menu and you can choose to take all or some of the 4 courses. Most of us took all 4 courses. We liked most of the food very much but there were also a few things that (in our... More

No choice, extremely expensive, very moderate spaghetti for 140,-DK; Wine list overpriced. Service very, very friendly, but inadequate.

I have been to this restaurant a lot of times during the last 6 years. I like the concept: It is a fixed Italian menu. You can choose to take 4 servings or 5 servings. And then you can choose from the winelist as you please or you can choose the wine menu that completes the menu. This time we... More

Recommended by friends who live in the city as a standout restaurant in a city filled with a seemingly endless supply of them. We chose the food & wine tasting menu and enjoyed every minute of it. Each wine was greatly enjoyable and paired fantastically well with each course. Fresh and earthy flavours in every single dish kept us wanting... More

Everything they served tasted great, as we expected. But we were a bit worried that we would cause problems for the kitchen as our group consisted of vegetarians, vegans and "normals". The staff handled the diverse problems arising from that with finesse, the cook changed his recipes a little, and everyone got what they wanted - and as quick as... More

We enjoyed a very meal at Famo. Everything was good. Our waitress was always smiling and gave us good advice regarding choice of wine for the menu. There some misunderstanding regarding what restaurant we ordered our table, they handled the situation perfect. The food was tasty and even though each dish was small no one was hungry after dessert. If... More

Some say yes, some say maybe not, in other reviews - we say 'oh yes'! Yet we saw one or two at other tables looking like they weren't enjoying their evening as much so maybe it's about what you want on a given day.... We unhesitatingly chose the Taster Menus (change daily) for both food and wine - four courses,... 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.
