Description: Welcome to one of Copenhagen’s oldest and most beautiful restaurants. In 1910, Christian Krogh, saw a unique opportunity and opened a fish restaurant on Gammel Strand, just where the fishwives sold their fresh produce. He hired the best architects in the city to create the most beautiful surroundings for his great dining experience. Since then, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge at nearby Holmens Kanal and the famous restaurant has many stories to tell. We are proud to carry on Christian Krogh’s tradition, because we recognize what a rare and important place a restaurant like ours is: a thriving metropolis must develop and indeed Copenhagen is evolving, with its new neighborhoods, its metro and its green initiatives. But a city also needs places like Krog’s if it is to keep its identity and its charm. Our aim is to preserve and strengthen Krog’s status as a landmark in the heart of Copenhagen. We look forward to welcoming anyone who has an appetit for the best fresh fish i

Nice setting, and the staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was
OK, nothing was bad, but it just didn't excite. My wife and I had raw oysters, the crab appetizer, tartar with lump fish roe (probably the best dish), bouillabaisse and Dover sole meniure. The bouillabaisse and Dover sole disappointed compared to these dishes in good restaurants elsewhere. Menu was fairly limited, with not a single salad of any type available. Prices are high, as in most of Copenhagen. With one glass of wine and one beer between us, the bill was over 1300DKK, about $200 USD. We probably won't return, as we have had better seafood in Copenhagen.

Perfect dinner with excellent service and great food, and reasonably priced for Copenhagen which is normally very expensive. Also I had a special diet this time and the really went out of their way to prepare it which was very much appreciated.

Went this week on a recommendation from our walking tour guide. We went early by Danish sensibilities and had the restaurant to ourselves.

The service was exceptional.

The seafood was alright- i did not find it top notch, and it was all served cold, but there was plenty of it on the seafood platter.

After a rainy day in and around Copenhagen we decided to try Krog's Fish Restaurant, recommended by the concierge at our hotel. The menu offered many different kinds of fish plus some non fish dishes. I chose 3 oysters as an entrée (appetizer in the US), LIMFJORD oysters. Please forgive me Apalachicola and Belon but these were the best oysters I've ever tasted. Large oysters with substance and flavor. Amazing!!! I could have eaten only oysters but had ordered hake also - with fresh peas. Also delicious and we order 2 desserts for the 3 of us and they were unbelievably good. Strawberries with sorbet that does not describe the flavors and rhubarb with sesame ice cream again that cannot explain the delicate flavors. An amazing meal!

My sister and I came with out parents for a birthday meal, two had the seafood royal and two the three course menu. Though the price tag is high - especially for the wine - you definitely get what you pay for! The quality and quantity of the foods are perfect and everything is very fresh. The homemade bread and butter (which are given very generously) were a lovely addition to the meal. The staff were also really helpful and friendly!
