Description: Il Senso is an institution for the wine lover located in the city centre of Copenhagen. We have been awarded Wine Spectators "Best of Award of Excellence in 2016" and "Award of Excellence" for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 and have also been voted as "Best wine bar in Copenhagen" several times. Il Senso offers a wide range of wines, and the well educated staff is always ready with information about the different producers or a specific winery. In the kitchen Il Senso's head chef is preparing traditional antipasti as well as rustic Mediterranean dishes, these will differ from month to month. Wine tastings can easily be arranged and should you need a private area in the restaurant for a group this is also possible. We look forward to hosting you.

The wines were clearly hand picked from the lower grade regions in France and Italy, but the owner had done an excellent job finding wines that were both interesting, original and tasty. Highly recommended.. we will be back!!

Really charming, cosy and low key wine bar just across from the Kings Gardens. Good and attentive service as well.
I was surprised to see that this bar didn't even appear on my iPhones map so the address is: Gothersgade 87.
We had a glass of "Phyllit, Pinot Noir, Solveigs - 2011 for Dkr. 89,-. I bought a bottle for home as well (Dkr.200,-) as this is officially now my new favorite!

This winebar has a great selection of wines from particular Italy. nice environment for tasting wines. They have the Coravin so you can taste a glass of expensive wines like Gaja, Ornellaia,
Sassicaia etc (min. buy 3 glass though). Definetely worth a visit if you like wine.

We did not have a regular meal here. We saw their board advertising wines and walked in to just check it out. We were delighted with what we found. They had a very good selection of wines from traditional sources - Spain, Italy, France, South Africa, California, etc. You pick whichever you wanted to try, they bring the bottles to the table marked with the levels, and you pay according to how much you poured from the bottles.

We ordered a tapas plate to share. It had a good selection of cured meats, cheeses, fresh bread, and sides. Very nicely laid out, each one was very tasty.

The bar looked nice and inviting but despite not being busy it was a struggle for the waiter to find somewhere for us to sit.
We ordered 2 glasses of wine at 75kr (cheapest ) each but we were given such a small amount I thought he was giving me a taste before pouring a glass. When challenged the waiter said that they get at least 8 glasses per bottle. The next people in had the same conversation with him.
