Lele is a trendy Vietnamese restaurant which serves quite excellent food. It was originally very down-to-earth and affordable. Now it seems it has become so trendy that the staff has developed a snobbish attitude. The wine is expensive (the cheapest bottle is 350dkk and not very good).

Restaurant Lele was a treat for us after a day of waking all over Copenhagen. We arrived at 6:50 PM for our 7 PM reservation. There was a little mix up with our reservation. However, they sat us down in an outdoor table. We ordered our cocktails. Mango and lychee martinis. They were delicious. For entrees, we ordered crispy roll,... More

Came here with some work colleagues for dinner one evening. The service was excellent and attentive and the waitress was happy to design a menu for us. A few things we had were the excellent king fish ceviche, vegetable curry, pork done 3 ways and green papaya salad - although the salad wasn't spicy enough for me. The chocolate ganache... More

Our experience in this restaurant was very good. Went in by chance looking for a place close to our hotel. I personally went to Vientnam 4 times and I found the food here really very good. Even without reservation the table was ready in few minutes, the staff was friendly and, again, food was really good. Reasonable price for Copenhagen... More

We chose the fully fledged menu for all 5 of us, and ordered entrées and wine separately as we wanted a different choice. The service was ok, no more. The food, on the other hand, was a let down in terms of quantity, if not of quality, in relation to the price we paid. It is probably healthier to do... More

Modern interior, cosy warm colors and welcoming staff- that's the first impression. Food Vietnamese style, fresh, beautifully served and tasteful. Wine list , not too long but fitting well to the moderately spicy ( in asian way) food. The desert French chocolate cake assisted by a glass of sauternes, there could not be a better finale.

We had to wait a long time before we were seated and nobody bothered to come ask us if we want to order a drink. After we got our table, we almost sat on the lap of our neighbours and also facing the neighouring table, not comfortable. It took like forever to order a drink and even longer untill our... More

Visited leLe with some friends and I regret to say, we were disappointed. The food seemed to be more contemporary than Vietnamese. Only two of the 6 small dishes tasted Asian. Our waiter provided good and friendly service, unfortunately he was the only one that did. This meant e.g. we did not have our glasses refilled and as it was... More

This restaurant serves some authentic and really tasteful food. Good variation in the courses but not that many choices. Never the less it's well worth a visit. As some points out some of the courses misses a little punch, but take for example the ceviche... My god thats's good... The springrolls are delicious. Go there, get some Tiger beers and... More

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.
