I am here with my Japanese guest and a Danish friend. All three of us love this restaurant! The food is sublime and the wines are great. The service is attentive without being pushy:-) Do not sit close to the doors - is it very drafting.

My husband and I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge with 4 other couples. Everything on the menu was over priced, even for Copenhagen. I will happily pay for great food, but this was anything but. I ordered the monk fish, as did several of our friends. The fish was dry and bland. It came... More

I agree with the previous review. Slow service, no customer connection and the food was flat and no flavours! It is a shame. Well it was for us. Our expectations were not met. Service recovery was very ordinary. Get your team to start connecting and being part of people's dining experience and get the food dancing on the plate.

For the price and the reputation, this place disappointed. The food was OK. It was not delicious. There was nothing here to rave about except the cocktails, which were good. It felt more like a trendy night club than a great dinner location. I would go back only for cocktails, but not for food. The price was high: $210 usd... More

First of all let me explain something. I am from a food and beverage background, working in the industry for over 15 years. I know, seen and managed chefs who put blood, sweat and passion into creating their meals. Therefore some of the reviews on this website about Geist are not right. If you are not from a food and...

As self-confessed foodies, we have a few statements to make about this place: The food here is world class. The service is personable and unobtrusive. The bar staff are friendly and skilled. The decor is tasteful. We loved it here; it absolutely made our trip to Copenhagen. Miss it, miss out.

It started good in the bar with Gustavo, the brazilian waiter who was very nice. But then we got the table..... Food here is extremely expensive for what you get - the white aspargus with truffelsauce we had to send out because the was not one chance of truffle in the sauce - the rest of the food also very...

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
