You’re looking for amazing food, kickass cocktails and you want the restaurant to have that ‘it’ feeling. We have found six perfect places where our very own food editor would book a table any day.
The avant-garde one
Bo Bech is an artist in a kitchen and you cantaste the creativity in his dishes, where old-fashioned tastiness goes hand in hand with the culinary avant-garde. His restaurant, Geist, also has one of the most rapidly changing and interesting menus in town. With dishes starting at around DKK 80, you can bombard your taste buds with gourmet food while enjoying the buzzing, international atmosphere.
Kongens Nytorv 8
1050 København K
Kul is the new black in the Meatpacking District. Chefs Henrik Jyrk and Christian Mortensen have hit the bull’s eye with their restaurant, where most of the food is barbecued. They serve cocktails for DKK 90, they have a delicious pick’n’choose menu and a bubbly vibe, which creates the perfect setting for a great night. Try the Pisco Sour, chef Jyrk’s personal favorite.
1712 København V
Umami is a little piece of London located in the middle of Copenhagen. The restaurant lowered its prices a couple of years ago, but the chefs are still as razor sharp as a Japanese samurai sword, both when it comes to sushi and ‘normal’ gourmet dishes, which are all DKK 120. The downstairs U-Bar is also pretty spectacular. Order yourself a Ginger Passion and have good time.
Store Kongensgade 59

The healthy one
Eat fish twice a week, they say. Well, we’d be happy to eat fish seven days a week if we could go Fiskebaren (The Fish Bar) every day. The restaurant is located in the Meatpacking District, which gives it that raw, industrial look. The dishes are fairly priced, they taste incredible, the wine isn’t too expensive and the cocktail menu is pretty tempting. All of these factors make Fiskebaren a healthy favorite to visit before hitting the bars.

The international one
No guide is complete without a sushi place. And the ultimately coolest sushi restaurant is without a doubt the one you find on the top floor of the Tivoli Hotel. On the 12th floor, you are literally one step closer to heaven. There’s a huge rooftop terrace, a lively bar with swings, a glass floor and furniture that looks like it came straight out of an interior design magazine. Let the party begin.

The unconventional one
Copenhagen’s first luxurious Lebanese place is called Manzel and you can get gourmet dishes to share in beautifully decorated and cozy surroundings. The kitchen uses spices that might be a bit out of the ordinary for the average Dane and the cocktail menu is also inspired by the Lebanese cuisine. Manzel createsintriguing cocktails with ingredients such as rose water and orange blossom water and they complement the food beautifully.
