Description: Long anecdotes on the unique origins of the ingredients. An endless song on the almost human features of the wine. Waiters that linger near you pretending to be a close friend. That is how it has become on most of the city’s finer restaurants. But not here. We really appreciate you being here. And we are looking forward to serve you delicious food and good wine. But otherwise we’ll give you peace and quiet, so you can relax and enjoy your meal. Don’t misunderstand us - you are more than welcome to ask if you want to know more about the food or the wine. We just don’t want to ruin your meal by stuffing nonsense down your throat.

“Great food!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Restaurant Rebel is a small and cosy place with an interesting menu of small dishes. The style is Nordic with a crossover kitchen touch. If you´re hungry you need at least three dishes. The price is a bit high but the food is excellent and made with love. The wine list is impressive and so are the prices, quite high so to say. The staff is very service minded and addresses every dish. I will definitely visit Restaurant Rebel again!

“An enjoyable experience”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

My daughter and I spent an enjoyable evening here, where we took advantage of a special offer on their four-course dinner. I chose the wine menu, which turned out to be a wise, but expensive choice. We shared a carafe of sparkling water, which was very expensive (DKK 80 for less than a liter).

The starter was a small, delicate dish of hake with Jerusalem artichoke, chorizo and browned butter, accompanied by a glass of full-bodied Chardonnay from Napa Valley. A pleasant start.
The beef tartar with berries and herb mayonnaise that followed was an amazing creation. The berries and strong herbs offered a pungent contrast to the sweetness of the fresh raw meat. A fruity rosé from Languedoc was an excellent match. And this is when I found out that the waiter kept the wine coming; unusual in Copenhagen.

The skirt steak with red beets and leeks was delicious with the sharpness of preserved red beets and red beet foam. A strong, full-bodied Cote de Rhone matched perfectly.

A simple, gratifying combination of vanilla ice cream with hazelnuts, nut crumble and fresh blueberries provided a pleasant end to the meal. The dessert wine, Passito Colle del Re, Emilia Romagna 2005, was superb.

Great food, great wine and a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere make me want to go back soon. I better save up for the wine, though.

“quite expensive but tasty”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Alternative restaurant founded for hazard; good mix among french and danish food. Be prepared to pay a lot but receive essential portion! ! Take a look to their menu on the internet site.

“Delicious food, minuscule portions”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We ate here on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed with the quality of the food, which was excellent. However, we left still feeling hungry and at these prices that shouldn't be the case. The menu states that all portions are starter sized and two dishes are equal to a large main course. This is simply not true. At the tables on either side of us, other diners were also surprised by the tiny morsels being served to them.
The food was outstanding but, sadly, we won't go back because I don't expect to have to make sandwiches when I get home from dining out.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Delicious seasonal menu, good wine list, great ambience. Lost one point as service was a bit lacking... But that might have been because we were seated in the corner and it was difficult for anyone to see us! Regardless I would recommend this place.
