Super bad experience with extremely rude waiter. Sent an email explaining the experience to the place prior to writing this review, so they had a chance to reply and maybe explain. The reply from management was that they thought that we had misunderstood the waiters personality. Believe me there was nothing to misunderstand- he screamed, pointed and let us know... More

Ignore the name.....creates the wrong impression of what's in store at this local eatery. Genuine French ambiance and cuisine to match. Had an excellent charcuterie plate for starters followed by Truite aux aumondes.

We stumbled across this restaurant accidentally, but what a find. Great food and service. Indoors can feel a little tight, but it was fine. There are tables outside, street side, but thought against this, due to the small pavement. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

I had dinner alone at this lovely restaurant. There are a few tables outside (small tables , but you can eat outside). I had the mussels and a wonderful Chablis. Food was very good and French fries with mussels very tasty. Service was good and I would eat here again!

Just a few blocks off the unfortunately increasingly seedy Stroget, this cafe is a respite., and very much welcomed (although we were told by the very French waiter /owner? he and it have been there nearly 20 years.) We stumbled on it for a late lunch, ( the Moules frites are a classic, the omlets just right, and the wine... More

Fantastic food, service, atmosphere. The best cafe that we have found by accident - the only one open. Simple French food done to the highest standard. Worth going out of your way for

Last night we had a very nice three course meal at L'Education Nationale. The decor, atmosphere and menu are very authentic French. We had different starters with a pork pate and an egg/spinach starter, as a main course very nice Moule Frites (mussels with fries) and a pear/icecream/chocolate dessert. Nice service, good atmosphere in a crowded restaurant

An excellent and genuine French sweetspot in Copenhagen. The menu is a good mix of very Classic dishes like tartare and moules frites etc and then several other dishes that the chef created himself, and of course still with a clear French touch. The restaurant is verts cosy and the atmosphere is French bistrot style. Service was good even though... More

L'education Nationale is a really nice, small and cosy French bistro with a very French interieur. The menu has moules marinieres, creme brulee and a lot of other French classics. The wine is good and the service is friendly and straightforward. An ideal place for a date or dinner with a good friend :)

Somehow this restaurant attracts me over and over Again, i been there several times but the last few (over 3 years) always comes with a "but". This time we arrived early on a saturday and was told we could have a table if we were done by eight - no problem - we could do that. A short glance at... More

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.
