"The first place we dined in CPH, has a special place in our hearts. The outgoing environment combined with good food makes it a great choice. I always go for the fish platter, never disappointing, my favorite drink, peach fuzz, and a dessert, they always have amazing desserts, not too sweet. My favorite one was the “pannacotta”."

"The head chef, Andrea Piras, is my best friend and he is one of the most dedicated and talented chefs I know. All the food at Slurp is beyond delicious, and the vibe is easy and fun. The Shio ramen and the Mazesoba are my favorites. The Mazesoba for me is a better version of an Italian “Tagliatelle al ragù” (Sorry Nonna)."

"This joint has it all. Tasty Japanese cuisine, ice-cold beers, a well-curated natural wine list, and a great relationship with music. And Sigurd is one of the best hosts around!"

Omegn & Venner

Omegn & Venner

"I love Torvehallerne as a whole but this is my go to bar to sit at for wine and food. A small menu but also a great range of daily specials that are always changing. A white burgundy, funky orange wine or a beer from Slowburn are my go to drinks and I love the squid with xo sauce and kale, the grilled zucchini with fresh cheese or the chicken heart pita. And always a freshly made canelé to finish."

Poulette

"Fairly spicy sandwiches, just the way I like it. The flavors they put in their sandwiches are straightforward, and they also got the best juicy wines to go with those mouthwatering meals."

"Andreas brings a great selection of natural wines, good coffee, and a nice lunch. I sincerely wish him a good start and I'm looking forward to sitting at the bar and have a glass."

Gaarden & Gaden

Gaarden & Gaden

"The casual combination of a wine bar and small restaurant is one of my favorites. Stopping by for a glass of excellent wine, a refreshing beer, and either some snacks or go full-in on their menu."

Fabro

Fabro

"Delicious pasta dishes in a casual spot in the center of town for a more than decent price. I would get pomodoro (with a healthy dollop of stracciatella) and a beer."

POPL

POPL

"Great burgers and hands down best veggie burger I've had."

Bottega Estadio

Bottega Estadio

"A newly opened restaurant at Østerbro Stadium. It’s fairly simple. How many places can you visit where you in one part can enjoy oysters, tacos, and wine, and in another, you can drink beers and watch second division football league? To me, the place is really rare and special in Copenhagen, and I love the concept of bringing good food and football together. Their head chef Julian is, to me, a star."

Fatty's

"Simply one of the best burger joints in Copenhagen. Straight forward, amazing fries, and inexpensive. Worth the visit."

The Union Kitchen

The Union Kitchen

"We love to start our Friday evenings here with a great vibe and awesome music. We always go for the spicy Margarita."

Friheden

Friheden

"This place embodies a lifestyle like few other places in Copenhagen. From morning to night you get to see people go about their day, bicycles passing by, skaters or friends hanging out listening to the DJ's records playing. I’d get lots of small dishes and a Paloma."

Café Stadion

Café Stadion

"This place is an old bar that renewed itself with new owners, and now it's a great place for both drinking and dining. I love to sit outside on their terrace and eat one of my absolute favorite things in the world, anchovies! Lots of great people working here, and always a fantastic and relaxed service, which inspires me."

Bottega Barlie

Bottega Barlie

"This spot has great food and great wines but what makes it special to me is the vibe. Especially outside on a summer night. Here I have had several memorable nights."

La Banchina

La Banchina

"The epitome of a Copenhagen summer is sitting by the water at La Banchina and going for a quick dip to cool down in between sips of delicious wine and some really wonderful seasonal dishes."

Gorda

Gorda

"A small Latin-American restaurant. I love the chill vibe and the laid-back approach. I go there especially for their delicious empanadas: an easy way to make me feel like home."

"I had never tasted original, flavourful Mexican food before Rosio and her amazing team opened the taquerias and the restaurants here in Copenhagen. I’m crazy about their tacos combo and Paleta. Everything is crafted almost to perfection and the intensity of flavours they are able to put in place makes me addicted to their food. Not to mention the Tepache they serve, simply delicious!"

Cadence

Cadence

"Their menu reminds me of brunch in my hometown Toronto. So much inventiveness - especially with eggs (sorry boiled egg with Rugbrød)! The service is super welcoming and the space is light and full of plants. I would go for poached egg on cheesy polenta and convince my table to share the hot cakes. Finish with a cannelle from the bakery and espresso."
