julesjules10 Dec 25, 2013 10:09 PM

Hi there,

we will be staying in copenhagen for 3 nights in January and would love recommendations of good restuarnts with a fun atmosphere and good food. We particularly want to try the traditional brunch/lunch platter.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    I would put Aamann's in the DO NOT MISS category. Awesome sandwiches. I was also a huge fan of the street hot dogs.

      Yeah. Two visits to John's Hot Dog Deli (right between the train station and Tivoli) were culinary highlights of my trip. We just don't make them like that in the States.

        Second Aamann's, by far the best Smorrebrod in town.

        Also I'm a big fan of Relae (though I'm aware it's not everyone's cup of tea). The food is never ingratiating but always interesting and thought provoking. And the place is very nice and relaxed and for Copenhagen very cheap.

        On the same street the people behind Relae have a simpler place, Manfred's & Vin which offers a 7 course menu for DKK 250 - probably the best bargain in town. The "natural wine" to accompany the food is....well, "natural wine" (=some great, some weird, some disgusting), very Copenhagen though...

        Bror is a nice, quite new place as well with former Noma chefs serving pretty cheap but still ambitious food.

        The new-ish food market at Norreport is more lifestyle than good food but has a couple of nice stalls (e.g. a french place with duck confit sandwiches, great lunch).

          I am also planning on being in Copenhagen for 3 days next month and Aamann's sounds great. I assume you guys are recommending it for lunch? Can you confirm?

          Also - any specific recs around Vesterbro where we will be staying?

            Yes, Aamann's (the Smorrebrod Deli, not the restaurant next door, though it's pretty good as well) is best for lunch but they're actually open until 7-8 pm so it's worth considering going there a bit later to avoid the crowds. In the evening much will be sold out though.

            Recs around Vesterbro:
            -Pony is a new restaurant run by the people behind Kadeau - one of the top restaurants in town - who couldn't part with the great location when they were forced to move Kadeau to bigger premises. Pony is simpler (450 DKK for 4 courses) but with great food and cozy athmosphere.

            - Paté Paté in the old meat packing district is another safe bet

            - Famo is a popular place serving italian comfort food at reasonable prices. Good food but don't expect to be blown away.

            - Madklubben is a chain with a huge canteen-style Vesterbro outlet who serves decent food at pretty low prices (for Copenhagen that is....)

        We liked the Norrebro Bryghus: it makes its own beer, and offers a menu of Danish cuisine paired with their beers.
