“Top value and great french food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

I recommend this place all the time to friends - and it is about time I do it here as well. For casual outings with friends and for dates. The atmosphere is friendly, sometimes loud and quite intimate as the seating is quite close and the room is not that big.

The food is very delicious and the price is extremely reasonable. In fact, at my first visit I was blown away at what they can deliver at this price, At the time of writing, you pick 2, 3 or 4 courses of the tight menu and pay DKK 230,- for two course, 260.- for three and 300.- for four. You choose from 3-4 starters, 3-4 entrees, cheese and 2-3 desserts and I have only ever gotten great food. It is traditional french. Quite elegant and not too rustic and with great choices that can accommodate most taste buds (vegetarians will have a hard time though). I have yet to see these prices matched for this kind of quality.

The service is excellent. Personal, charming and the very French.

The location is a little off the beaten path, but very easy to get to from Østerport station and within 10 minutes of Trianglen and the bars etc available in that area. This is my first choice for a casual night out with my spouse and/or friends.

I would always make a reservation - the place is always packed and I have even seen celebreties being turned away at the door ;)

“Food is good but!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

The owner turned on the music to a point where nobody were able to communicate. Why?
The waiter and her red haired male colleague were very good.
The owner needs a bath, a shave and clean clothes. Wonder how the kitchen looks?
The food was very good.

“super value in cph”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We (a DK couple) were quite blown away by our visit the other day. I called on a Wednesday night at 19.00 and asked if we could come at 20.00. Yeah, sure, just come. When we arrived it was noisy, full, hot, and fun. We were (fortunately) given a table by the door, which we soon jammed open to get some air in. With thanks from other guests. The place was almost full, and people kept arriving. One of the staff was on vacation, so only one waitress was available, but helped by the owner/cook who had help in the kitchen. The owner likes to talk, but is efficient in helping out. The waitress (Melissa?) was brilliant, and managed to assure that everything ran on schedule despite chaos. Oh yeah, and the food. Understated on the menu and when described, but much more composed and symphonic than you would imagine. Bottom line, brilliant, and more than brilliant for the money. Far from the madding crowd outside, but a happy circus inside. Do it if you are in Kbh. Do it.
