We decided to call into Restaurant Lele for our final night after a week of business in Copenhagen. The restaurant is very well appointed and the menu very extensive. Our meals were of very high standard with lovely taste and visual appeal. The wine list was very well catered with options from around the globe that were not too expensive.... More

We popped in for a quick drink to take cover from the cold and this place looked great from the outside. We sat at the bar and couldn't help but notice how nice the food smelt! We had one cocktail each, one tasted like a solero and the other based on tequila which were both very nice. Friendly staff :)... More

You enter through a bar area which almost looks like a bazaar. The lightning in the restaurant is low. We didn't have a booking on this busy Saturday night but they found us a table on bar-type seats. We ordered a bottle of the Montepulciano red wine which tasted good. My starter was well presented and the waiter explained each... More

This restaurant deserve a little experience to make it absolutely perfect! But for me as a first timer it was an exciting experience and the ceviche was the absolute favourite around the table and a dish to come back for ... The acoustic is bad if you are more than two at the table, but the ambiance is good so... More

We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, my favorite dish was the kingfish ceviche. The service was friendly, but not very attentive. We had to remind them of what to bring us, and timings between dishes and drinks could be improved. Yet, the food was really good, well worth a visit!

Tried two dishes (rolls and pork cheek). Waiter recommended wine which didn't match at first try. Ok, glass for free. Then new wine to try. Super! Good and relaxed atmosphere. Nice food. Good wine.

I was there for dinner with a colleague and we both loved the food. We had three courses each (they recommend 2-4) which was plenty for both. Highly recommend the green guava salad. The service was friendly but maybe a little slow.

I was here on a team dinner and had a good evening. The food as such was good but the service was so so. We waited a bit too long to get to order our drinks even though it was a Tuesday night and the place not that busy. The food was also a bit slow and could have been... 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.
