“Superb food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had booked online the previous week and, seeing how busy this place is, would recommend you do the same. Very warm welcome from Australian (!) hosts and totally un-rushed service. The menu offers some of the finest food we have eaten - huge mussels as a starter, amazingly tender steak afterwards. We could not fault anything. The wine list is very good. We would recommend Tight to everyone.

“Not bad, but probably looked better than it tasted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We sniffed out this restaurant based on very positive comments on Trip Advisor, and althought nothing was bad, it was just didn't quite live up to expectations. The service was very friendly and polite, however a little slow as it was very busy. I ordered the Pork schnitzel which was pleasant enough but nothing special, however the potato gratin was particularly tasty. My other half ordered the very popular Tight Burger (i think at least one person per table had ordered this!) and although it looked very impressive, the flavour was also lacking in the burger itself (but it came with good toppings and sides). We ended the meal with a shared sticky toffee pudding which looked better than the table next to ours (which appeared rock solid!) but it wasn't as fresh and soft as it could have been.
Overall it wasn't a bad experience, we probably just went with very high expectations.

“Top food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Tight is situated right next to the famous pedestrian street Stroget. We got a small table next to the window which was ok although a bit tight. We had a couple of beers and waited for the food which was well worth it. It got top points from us both. We had 1) three danish tenderloin medallions encrusted with mustard and honey - served with potatoes gratin and homemade ratatouille and 2) oven baked cod filet, served with baby potatoes, vegetables julienne, pickled red onion, star anis, lemongrass, white wine and lemon olive oil. The first dish had the misnomer Schnitzel. Service was very friendly maybe because all the staff seemed to be from the other side of the Atlantic. We soon switched to English which was the preferred language here.

“Just right....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

There's surprisingly few restaurants open on Easter Sunday/Monday. We'd planned Sunday's visit (on a 4 day break from the UK), but struggled to find anything decent on Monday so ended up back at Tight again. Excellent x 2. Sunday at 6pm it was crammed, but service was quick, charming, well judged. Gravadlax/surf n'turf + carpaccio/pork were outstanding. Quieter on Monday, and we both went for carpaccio and pork. Truffle oil and peppercorns on the carpaccio are really, really good. Decent wines by the glass, friendly and helpful service, and not outrageously priced. It's a great place - short menu/well executed, interesting building, charming staff. It just delivers.... go there!

“Good Food - Good Value (for Copenhagen)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to book a table via the internet in advance of our trip to Copenhagen. Just as well - the restaurant was packed the night we went. The food was very good, the service excellent and the bill very acceptable - for Copenhagen. Well worth the visit but advisable to book in advance.
