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.

I was very much looking forward to visiting this restaurant due to its chef's reputation and the impression of cosy atmosphere related by some of the friends who went there. We booked a table for 4, but when we arrived we were seated around the corner of the kitchen bar counter. The persons seating farthest on each side could not... More

We booked Geist on a recommendation and were not disappointed. Selection of foods was brilliant as were the cocktails. The desserts were a particular highlight so keep some room! The music is really loud which was fine by us but worth knowing incase you prefer a quiter ambiance! We sat at the "food bar" overlooking the open kitchen which was... 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.
