refinement, incredible creativity, absolutely outstanding. great service and lovely view . certainly a memorable evening, and in the end we got a card with the 25 items we ate liste, but everything was an absolute delight. if i can make a remake ,the 3 desserts were actually slightly below the rest , if one wants to be fussy

We landed in Copenhagen 90 minutes prior to our booking, and booked in to the Nimb with a warm welcome.
A little pidgen Danish with the taxi driver confirmed he knew the way to Geranium,and some perfect English in reply from him answered the question that it was, in fact a lake, not a river, and they were large artificial white swans being paddled by recalcitrant children escaping their parents. Our taxi turned in beside the concrete edifice which is the Copenhagen football ground, and stopped around the back in a completely empty carpark next to a canopy with the restaurant Brand on it.
An elevator trip to the 5th floor, and the door opens into a special environment where Art and theatre meets food.
The restaurant is warm and spacious with stunning views , mostly to the South (when up so far North, most places are to the south). Over the course of the meal we enjoyed a long, stunning Scandanavian sunset then midnight twilight.
We were made most welcome from the staff who were knowledgable and attentive over the entire evening. We chose the option of paired wines , juices or beer with each course as the Maitre'D chose, which was most interesting.
Over the course of the evening, we had 21 tasting dishes which were sublimely prepared pieces of art, and revealed individual component flavours beautifully.
Part of the theatre of the evening included a course served in the kitchen, with, a visit and chat with the head chef.
This was a special dining experience which we would recommend to people who wish to experience world class food in an environment which complements it perfectly .

This is a costly experience by any standard so we studied the reviews - both positive and negative. We enjoyed the longer tasting lunch menu and were blown away! One of our top 5 meals ever - which is quite a statement since we are long-time foodies in our mid-50's. No need to go into detail since other reviewers have done that so well. Just know that we loved the experience and highly recommend it if your budget allows it.

Just a note - if you pay by credit card the restaurant passes on the processing charge which varies by card and country. We are from the U.S. and used our MasterCard. The surcharge was 2.72%. We knew this in advance and were fine with that.

This is a memorable dining experience. The dishes are imaginative, fully engage and stimulate the senses and make sense as food as well as art. The wine pairings are excellent. The service is perfect. It is not possible to exaggerate the quality and you can believe everything positive you read. It is expensive but you can see exactly where the money goes.

5 start isn't enough. I Could feel the love for food at every one of the 23 servings. Every plate is a piece of art and the taste of every bite is stored as a memory.
The wine menu is a must.

Is it worth to pay the same price for a meal as a planeticket from Copenhagen to Thailand and back costs? The anwswer is YES. The experience exceeded my expectations and is now a memory of an evening I'll nerver forget.
