Description: At 56° you can look forward to a very special culinary experience, because the focus is on the good ingredients and to establish proximity between the kitchen and the guest. The chefs take pride in using only the best ingredients, which means that the menu follow the season - and sometimes from day to day. Although the menu is changing, you can be sure of high quality when the traditional Nordic cuisine meets modern and creative chefs art.

“Worth a trip out there”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Located in an old navy building, the restaurant certainly boasts character, though it is a bit off the beaten track inless you are visiting the opera, and we only found it on recommendation. Thursday evening and there were plenty of customers so booking is probably wise any time. The staff showed interest in us which is always a good start. We all took the three course menu at dkk325, imaginative creations that benefited from the chef's explanation, but none the worse for that. In appearance they were small but at the end we were all full, so apparently the size was well considered. A very pleasant Chianti was the housewine at dkk325 which seemed reasonable (there were some considerably more expensive bottles on the list if you are more demanding). Trying to think of faults but unable to come up with any.

Thank you so much for the feedback.

Because of our location on the "wrong side" of the Copenhagen habour, we only exists because of our guests recommendation. Thank you - and hope to see you again :-)

“Best food ever”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Spisehuset 56 grader was a great visit, just a short boat-ride slightly outside the Opera. The Head Waiter was in full control, even remembering my first name from my online reservation. We had the Season menu. All the courses had great trimmings, all in season. Great wine, an additional cheese-platter before the dessert made this evening just fantastic. Best restaurant and food in Copenhagen I've ever had, this is a place I for sure will visit again.

“Superb food & wine, great service, nice setting”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This was by far the best meal I have had in Copenhagen in 8 or 9 visits to the city over the past few years. The chef justaposes rather than mixes tastes, and the ingredients are absolutely fresh - some in fact picked in front of us prior to our eating them! - with an emphasis on local product. The taste combinations are at first subtle in mouth, then become bolder, and finally completely appropriate, while the combination of textures was also really interesting. Menu choices are rather limited but this is probably natural considering the thoughtful nature of the cuisine, and I did not feel that it was a problem at all, and the wine list is clearly very well thought out, with options for all prices. Service was excellent, attentive, and flexible. Overall, I am very much looking forward to returning here on a future visit to Copenhagen!
