This fantastic restaurant is superb, friendly staff and wonderful ambience.. We arrived around 9.30pm and the restaurant was very quiet. We both ordered the Ribeye steak with fries. The meat was exceptional, perfectly seasoned , and the fries were cooked perfectly. The béarnaise was the...best I’ve ever tasted. We had champagne to drink that was super dry. I would certainly visit here on my next trip to Copenhagen.More

I can’t pass French restaurant anywhere I travel because I value French cooking and the food. But not always a success. Here, I feel like I was still in France where I was ten days ago. I was in Paris with a Parisienne food lover-...the rest is self-explanatory ;) The ambiance is easy and simple and also warm and cozy perfect for a wet, cold evening in Copenhagen. Very French bistro with an air of extra warmth! The menu is prepared thoughtfully without being overwhelming. My two visits, I had escargot, root vegetables with rabbit, Dover sole and beef( entrecôte ) that had such flavor and perfect texture- let's say that it was far better than your average wagyu beef, salad, and a textbook-perfect creme brûlée. What’s more, is that I am not a wine drinker but understand the wine a little; the wine selection was superb! What I ordered was so heavenly that I took a picture of the bottle. ( pictured here) Cheers! 🍷🍷 Of course, the owner and staff were attentive and respectful, just right! Plus to the experience! Copenhagen offers an amazing array of food, but if you miss this, you will be sorry... I went back to try one more time, and it was absolutely the best last meal in Copenhagen.More

Good variety, but not too much. My colleagues had a hard time choosing between the very delicious looking dishes. Plate d’jour was Wild Boar. Really good.

Great food: gorgious plateau de fruits de mer ( with exception of a frozen lobster) , tasty meat, good wine, good dessert. A cozy place. Appropriate and kind bistrò service. Value for money.

Cosy place with interesting surroundings. However, the service is slightly snobbish. I have been there a few times and twice I´ve had the big seashell plate and both times the crab meet were smushed into crab-can alike meat. The mussels were overcooked and in generel...it was terrible and not tasty at all. Only the oysters were fine.More

We ordered Moules and a fish with moules sauce. The fish was delicious (and it can be for more than 250 DKK) and the moules was ok but not very good (145 DKK, which is expensive for a standard moules). Service is very pleasant and...effective. As French, I would not call this a bistro, which is normally cheaper and quite straight forward dishes (like moules but not the fish dish and its advanced composition)More

Danish friends invited us to l'Education Nationale for dinner and we were pleasently surprised. Some 40 years ago this was Copenhagen's seedy red-light district, but now it has been totally transformed into a friendly Danish version of the Left Bank in Paris, with cafés, small...restaurants and trendy shops. L'Education Nationale fully fits the picture. With long sofas, crowded atmosphere, posters and funny signs it's more French than any bistro in France. Most of the waiters even speak only French (but they're very un-French by being polite to customers). Food is very good, without being high cuisine. We tried various starters which were very decent. For main course we had rabbit, which was high class, superb moules frites (some of the best mussels we ever ate) and a very decent entrecôte. Price level isn't low, but perfectly tolerable.More

Authentic French food in a small intimate atmosphere. Classic and well-prepared dishes, so don't expect surprises either good or bad
