This restaurant never fails. Whether you come for their choucroute specials, the fish of the day or the steak frites, you always get great food prepared exquisitely. The wine is equally good, and the service friendly and professional. A small place with a 'hyggelig' atmosphere.

Food was super good! And the portions were generous. We were unlucky with the service, the waitress seemed to forget us altogether. Perhaps it was the location of the table. But great food was worth waiting!

Cosy, and they pay attention to specific table requests on booking. Excellent value on a Sunday with the set menu. Fantastic bread and olive oil, very good quality ingredients. We make this a regular treat. When on one occasion the meat was undercooked, we were offered free dessert wine as compensation.

No fuzz - just friendly and relaxed. Had a great salmon to start with and then naturally the steak and Frits. Very enjoyable and surely I will be back - my son lives close by.

A nice place commemorating the saint Jacob of Composted Apart from a wall of iconic paintings it's nothing religious over this place. But a small cozy place with good food and a helpful staff. I can recommend this place. We had the Iberian pork and it was great although it was served with just some seasonal cabbage, but this was... More

Le Saint Jacques is an aesthetic treat in the Østerbro area of Copenhagen, both when it comes to the food as well as the decor. Exquisitely chosen produce, delicately made and served in charming surroundings with orthodox Icons decorating the walls. It is French cuisine made with rich ingredients from both France and Denmark. Many delivered by Daniel Letz across... More

We've been going to le Saint Jacques for 3 years and we like it but lately we have felt that it's just a little too pricey for what you get. Plus they don't have a kids menu. Portions are on the small side, the tartar has shrunk to not enough to sustain one person. The last meal we ate there... More

Super location. Great outdoor atmosphere and ambience. But. Service is very laid back. Borderline lazy. Do not expect to be served quickly, in order of arrival, or get an expedited checkout. It feels like they try to mimic a "rude" French bistro you see in the movies - and succeeding in doing so.

A quality French bistro/restaurant that has been around for years. Famous for its “Smoked salmon Impérial” - and has an overall high standard. Recommended for when you are in the mood for a classic, bistro lunch or dinner. I have used it with business connections a few times and it has always gone down well.

I met my grown up son at the restaurant on a Tuesday evening. We had a lovely time. The place was lively, busy but still with a quiet atmosphere. We had seafood starters and they were simple and very well done. Both of us had the steak frites for main course. Great meet and done in what I believe to... More
