Description: A very Popular cafe in Copenhagen through 16 years. The Danish word "Hyggelig" describes in the best way what kind of cafe Klimt is. The name "Klimt" comes from the famous austrian painter, Gustav Klimt whom the cafe was named after and you find Gustav Klimts art as a part of the deco in cafe's interior. Looking forward to welcoming you soon :-) All the best Cafe Klimt

The Designmuseum Danmark - a must-see, by the way - has a spillover effect on the food. The food is pretty. The cafe serves traditional lunch fare like salad, herring, and open-faced sandwiches, with a modern twist. They were fresh, light and beautifully arranged. The cakes were whimsical and delicious.

The ambiance was a bit hectic when we were there on a Sunday afternoon. The seating area was in the middle of the hallway between the main entrance and the gift shop. So, while it might have been nice to eat there among beautiful light fixtures and other decorative items on a different time, it was crowded, hectic and overrun by foot traffic during the late lunch hours. Also, you ordered at the bar, paid and had to tell the staff where you sat, so they could bring out the food. That was stressful when we didn't know if we would have a place to sit. We had to divide and conquer: one of us grabbing the last two seats and the other ordering for both of us. It was also hard to get the wait staff attention if we needed anything else, like more water.

Anyway, if you set your expectation that this is a museum cafe, the food itself was way above your average museum food. It could have been at any solid bistro.

Also, if you are on the way to see Little Mermaid from the city center, this museum is on the way. Stop by it, check out the interesting and interactive exhibits and grab some lunch on the way.

Ate here on Rick Steve's book recommendation and was impressed. Food was good, service was good. Had burgers, yes know this is an American stereotype, but first burgers we had in three weeks. Enjoyed the meal.

Ok range of beer, dry burger was not asked on how I wanted it cooked. Nachos for starters, just from the bag with ready melted cheese from a pump. The service was unattendant, but quite sweet once they popped by. The atmosphere is ok, typical Copenhagen café.

Unfortunately have to agree with the previous review. My mexican soup was tasty, but included only 10 beans or so. Lets say tasty broth not soup. Service was a bit abcent.

There are only a few items on the menu, and I don't recall any of them being Dutch. I ordered Cajun chicken. There was nothing Cajun about it. It was really chicken cooked in a Thai curry sauce with coconut milk. I didn't see this as a good value either. The prices were about $ 20 per entrée, about what you would pay at most other restaurants.
