My sister and I went for a 3 menu course for Dining Week. The experience was above expectations. The waiters made sure all went smoothly, and they provided an excellent service. The food was also great, and the wine pleasant.

Incredible,surpraising place. Very good for lunch. Nice service and atmosphere. We eat traditional chicken salad and tuna salad. We can easily recomend that place. Not very cheap.

We had a reservation for three, and were promptly seated. The waiter spoke poor English and seemed uninformed about the menu. He served two of us our first course, and, without asking, at the same time brought the main course for the third (she had...More

Had a most enjoyable family lunch. Herring and home-flavoured aquavit was excellent. roast pork went down a treat, as did the fish cakes and salmon. Highly recommended.

‘Maven – Restaurant & Wine bar’ is a down-to-earth eatery in the Nikolaj Exhibition Building; an old church right in Copenhagen’s solar plexus. We offer quality wines and good beer at honest prices and classic dishes with an elegant twist, freshly made from the best ingredients. The place has borrowed the old nickname for the Nikolaj Square; in the 19th Century this was the home of the city’s butcher shops and thus referred to by the locals as ‘Maven’, literally meaning ‘the Stomach’. We have removed the bloody traces and aired the location, but the informal charm is still here. We treat the stomach without overdoing the gastronomical ambitions.
