Kong Hans Kælder (1 Michelin)
For nearly 40 years, the restaurant Kong Hans Kælder has been an institution on Copenhagen’s restaurant scene. Kong Hans Kælder received as the first restaurant in Copenhagen a Michelin star in 1983, and has since then been a point of reference when it came to pleasure and luxury in Copenhagen. Last year, Thomas Rode, the third chef in the short line of Kong Hans chefs, announced his retirement after 18 years behind the stove. In his place the new chef Mark Lundgaard and restaurant manager Peter Pepke decided to completely reinvent the place. With due respect to the legacy that is Kong Hans. IMPORTANT NOTE: Only open for dinner Tues – Sat 18:00 – 00:00
Geist (No Michelin stars)
Geist is centrally located right by Kongens Nytorv and gives you a gastronomic experience that doesn’t cost a fortune. Geist focuses on the natural commodities. It’s important to the owner, Bo Bech, that you can see exactly what you are eating. However, the food comes with a little twist. The interior is raw with concrete floors and rendered walls. The colours are dark and dim and the lightning is muted. You can either eat at the bar and socialize with other guests, or you can enjoy your meal at a table in the restaurant. IMPORTANT NOTE: Open ALL days for dinner only 18:00 – 01:00
