Maybe I had high expectations but I feel that the restaurant is overrated and overpriced. The layout, the music and the decor are all great but the food is far from excellent. Everything we tasted was OK but nothing was extraordinary. Way too much salt...More

Get to Kongens Nytorv and look for the Bowler hat and that's Geist! Bo Bech is the master chef at this place. He wasn't at work the day we dined there but his mastery was delivered by other diligent chefs at the restaurant. They are...More

Cozy, quality place that definitely suits an occasion to celebrate. Central location. Small, beautiful, creative servings, sometimes unexpected combinations. Definitely good wine. Great place to enjoy food and whatever you might be celebrating!

We went to dine as a group. Overall, the food was very good, save for a couple of items on the menu, I think it was the lobster and the avocado and caviar salad, which were in very small servings, compared to all the other...More

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
