We had our pre-cinema dinner last Friday at 6 in Marv & Ben. The restaurant was less than half full when we left at a quarter to 8, which was a bit surprising. We had bought a deal which meant that we paid only ⅔ of full price for the food. The food was okay and nicely presented, however it... More

Loved this place. The food was delicious and ambience was great. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quality Danish food experience at a not-to-expensive price.

I must say this is the one restaurant that will really surprise you....the food just look so simple but the taste is just so perfect....the connoisseur of Gourmet and Cuisine know that the hardest thing to do in cooking is doing it in the simplest way and make it so delicious that it just melts the second you taste it...

Food is good and beautiful, even though there was no surprise. But the portion is too little and bread is not always supplied properly. My stomach is not really satisfied finally.

In our quest to find restaurants that came as close as possible to the Noma experience, we tracked down chefs that have studied and worked there. This place was one such restaurant and we found it was a cunning strategy to guarantee an amazing meal. This restaurant is located a few streets away from the tourist hub and takes a... More

The restaurant is located in a nice area. The atmosphere is plain and simple but wellcoming. The service was excellent and the prices are decent. The winelist is limited but the wines we tried was very good. The menu consists of starter sized dishes and 4-5 composes a full dinner. The food is according to our opinion where the problems...

Marv & Ben is the place to go when you want to really enjoy flavours, but also be surprised. The creativity that you are exposed to here is on a level you don't see often- what a treat. The menu consists of a number of small dishes so after 4-5 you will be more than satisfied. I am not going... More

The meat dish was their pork(gris) it had quite a bit of fat and was VERY over cooked.. The setting in it self, was very nice, and the service good.... More

Very quaint and cozy restaurant within walking distance from downtown Copenhagen. We chose the chefs choice with wine pairing, our server was excellent and knowledgable. The meal was superb and ingredients were explored as I never had before, the chef really pleased us all. Celery ice cream?!?! A bit pricey but worth it.

We went here on the suggestion of a taxi driver and were thrilled that we took his advise. The restaurant is small, so I'd make reservations, and has an intimate feel to it. It is definitely not the average restaurant and you can tell that immediately from the decor. But you're still not wholly prepared for the food which combines... More

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.
