When one speaks of gastronomy, we think of the relationship between food, culture, and art, and this is truly summed up at Restaurant KrebseGaarden. I had the read the reviews here and the elsewhere and we made our reservation nearly 2 months in advance, the minute they opened up for the one and only day we would be passing through... More

We had dinner here last year and it's one of the reasons we had to return to Copenhagen this year. I made reservations as soon as they opened for the day we wanted to go. What a place! What an experience! We chose the tasting menu - 5 courses, 5 different wines, plus dessert. The content and preparation was described... More

What a fantastic evening we had here. Loved all the food, and the wine. Very nice room, about 10 tables, with interesting art all over. What makes this place extra special, though, is Carsten and Mats. They look after everyone with charm, humour and a real passion for the food and drink at Krebsegaarden. Fantastic service, thank you!

Managed to get a table here on a standby and I was blown away. Mats and his colleagues are perfect hosts, knowledgable and attentive without being in your face. The food is divine, I've eaten in a number of Michelin starred places and this more than matches them. The tasting menu and wine choice is stunning as you get to... More

This is a small restaurant and it´s very often fully booked. We were lucky as someone cancelled their reservation and we were able to go for dinner. We took a menu of 2 starters (half portion each) +2 mains (half portion each) + 2 desserts (also half portion each) with the accompanying wine (different for each dish=half portion) which was...

Without a clue as to where to go in Copenhagen, we followed TripAdvisor's advice and couldn't agree more with the rave reviews -- the dishes are exceptional, flavorful and well above your average dining. The service also far exceeds the ordinary, with the waiters taking the time to describe not just what we were getting, but providing intriguing details on... More

A most pleasurable evening in delightful company of hosts whose passion for excellent food and wine is palpable. The menu is limited but one can ask for several smaller first and main courses. We had the crayfish salad of the house and have never tasted such fine crayfish. We continued with the three main courses accompanied by the proposed wine,... More

This is really a terrific restaurant in old Copenhagen and definitely worth the visit. While I was only there for a week, I couldn't help but go back for a second time. The service is impeccable and friendly. The food is all prepared with fresh ingredients and an absence of chemicals; they even forego common soft drink beverages for fruit-based... More

It is number one on Trip Advisor for a reason. My husband and I selected the wine pairing with our meal and everything was perfect. We were placed near the window which we asked for, the two owners described each wine and how the food was prepared and treated us like we were the guests of honor. It was fantastic... 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.
