“Meal with a view”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Tårnet is the tower of Christiansborg where the Danish parliament is located - and now also the location of a fantastic restaurant. The food is classic Danish open-faced sandwiches with a twist. I had the beef tartar with tarragon and red clover followed by hardboiled eggs with shrimp, crab mayo and blue flowers of some sort. It was delicious and beautiful to look at. Even our children loved it which was a total shocker! There is a gorgeous view from the restaurant and afterwards you can visit the higher levels of the tower to enjoy the view some more. Don't miss this culinary tower of power. The service was simply perfect.

“Stunning”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We were a small party of three that decided to partake in the opening of this stunning, new restaurant and café located in the huge, majestic tower of the Danish Parliament building. Before our restaurant visit, we took the elevator to the lookout post on the top of the tower for a terrific view of Copenhagen. It’s free, so don’t miss it.

After the remarkable view, we descended to the restaurant where we indulged in three strawberry cakes, tea and coffee. The cakes were doll-sized and slightly larger than an amuse bouche, but delicious. For a normal, human-size cake we recommend you order a "lagkage" or layer cake. Coffee and tea are prima quality. Our lovely, Swedish maître d' apologized for a very long delay and offered coffee and tea on the house.

Our only misgivings were the cheap, glaring, light fixtures that ruined the large room’s delicate illumination needs. We were truly puzzled as to why any architect in his right mind (sorry Mr. Architect - but really?) would mount such ugly lavatory glass globes in equally gorgeous surroundings. Hopefully, this is a temporary solution to be replaced by one of the many, amazing lighting possibilities available on the Danish market.
