Copenhagen Guide – Extraordinary places to eat

Updated: Jan 5

There's a lot of cool and different places to eat in Copenhagen. I have before written a blog post about the best places to eat in Copenhagen, but this time I wanted to write about the most extraordinary places to eat in Copenhagen.

Culture Tower – eat in a historic bridge tower

If you want a culinary experience for the books, why not try eating in one of the towers on Knippelsbro – the bridge between Amager and Zealand. You can sit both inside and outside and you will have the most amazing views of the inner Copenhagen harbor and the sunset.

The restaurant in the tower is only open during the summer months, and you must book a table in good time to secure a spot. They serve a 4-course menu with fish and vegetables and a ticket costs 700 kr., which includes wine menu.

The Culture Tower has very limited seats, and you therefore have to choose between a seating at 5 or 8 pm. Since the sun sets very late in Denmark during summer, I recommend you to choose the late seating, both so you’ll be able to enjoy the sunset and so that you can sit as long as you wish.

Address: Knippelsbro 2, 1400 København K

Lille Petra

Copenhagen is full of cozy (hyggelige as we say in Danish) courtyards, and there’s always more to explore. Enjoy breakfast or a little break at Lille Petra, which is a café located right next to the Kings Garden in Copenhagen.

Lille Petra serves breakfast, lunch, coffee and cakes every day of the week, except Sunday.

Address: Kronprinsessegade 4, 1306 København

Restaurant L’Alsace

In another and perhaps even more charming courtyard, you find the French restaurant L’Alsace between cobblestones, old and crooked buildings, and flowers.

The restaurants serve lunch and dinner with a French and Austrian twist, and you will without a doubt have an amazing culinary experience here. If you want to just come for a glass of wine, they have their own wine bar on the 1st floor.

Address: Ny Østergade 9, 1101 København K

Bistro RK

One of the new stars in Copenhagen’s Nørrebro neighborhood is without a doubt Bistro RK, which has two of Denmark’s leading Michelin chefs behind.

Bistro RK serves both lunch and dinner with a great twist of the Nordic and French kitchen with the best ingredients in focus. The atmosphere is cozy, classy, and welcoming at the same time – just the perfect mix. The food is sublime, and the prices are for everyone.

If you are a big group and want a different private dining experience, Bistro RK has a bank vault in the basement that you can book!

Address: Nørrebrogade 160, 2200 København

Copenhagen Meatpacking District

In the Meatpacking District you can find a cool, urban, and hip crowd of all ages, as well as a big selection of food and drinks – and even nightclubs.

You can find restaurants in everything from the Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian, Danish kitchen and so much more. Every place here is very popular during the summer, so make sure to book a table in good time.

Address: Slagterboderne 1, 1716 København


Restaurant Spuntino is a popular Italian restaurant with a cool concept – and trees inside. For only 250 DKK you get 5 starters and a main dish, and for only 200 DKK more you get all you drink beer or wine for 2 hours. Everything is very good and delicious, and it has the perfect mix of Italy and Copenhagen vibes.

This place is our to go place for a good date night, so our tip for you is to take a later seating, so you can stay until they close.

Address: Vesterbrogade 68, 1620 København
