The first thing you'll experience at Krebsegaarden is a BIG Norwegian welcome from Mats, who obviously takes great pride in his lovely little restaurant. Mats and the equally affable Carsten run through the menu choices with great care and ensure your glass is always full. We both had the Chantarelle soup to start, which is a delicate but intense bowl... More

Visited Krebsegaarden on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and reserved a table as had been advised. This was wise as restaurant is very popular. Welcome was very warm with Mats providing an extra attraction for the evening with his football stories and general bonhomie. We chose the tasting menu which included mushroom soup, chicken terrine, cod in tomato and roast... More

A weekend in Copenhagen must include at least on or two special restaurant visits and while we had not left enough time to arrange a reservation at one of the world’s most famous places, we did secure a table here, the second most highly ranked place on TA. Going to Krebsgaarden is not really about going out for dinner but... More

Absent the reviews on Trip advisor, we would never have found this tiny place down a one-way street near a university. And what a find it was! We concur with the previous laudatory reviews. The format is a bit "different", in a nice way, with the owner-chefs serving you and telling you precisely what is in each dish and how... More

We had a fantastic evening of food, drink and ambience at this restaurant last night. From the vivid descriptions of the food down to the knowledge of wines and cheeses this place has it all. Amazing!

This place really is a jem. Me and my partner went here last night and we were very lucky to get a table as it is a very small place. I was desperate to get in and I had to call back to see if their were any cancellations just so we could get a table. We had the 4... More

The food is prepared with a lot of effort and care - tasting heavenly, and the service is impeccable to each guest - both the old and the young in the family. The prices are very seasonable especially considering the high quality. Seemed hard to get a table so try to book in advance.

Of all the restaurants I ate at in Copenhagen this was my favorite by far! The chef and staff were amazing and the food was smart, filling and a true delight. We had a great pumpkin soup, fish, oxen and desert, not to mention amazing wine pairings recommended by the staff. As I said before we ate at the "top... More

The personell were really fantastic with everything from the food to what to drink with it. No hurry, just relax, was their mantra to the customers! And they really took the time to explain where everything came from, why they served that specific beverage to every course served. I´d say that this is really a top class restaurant!

The food is delicious and the wine pairings even more amazing. The chefs gladly tell you what you're eating and how it was prepared.

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.
