Best Restaurants in Copenhagen
The lords of Michelin dining have bestowed 13 restaurants in
Copenhagen with their mark of guaranteed fine dining. While
obviously many popular restaurants in Copenhagen are not included,
the honours are indicative of how far dining has progressed in the
Traditionally Denmark has not been known for its food,
Frikadeller meat balls and cabbage being among the most popular of
dishes. While there are some great Danish foods, their hot dogs and
open-faced sandwiches are some of the best, much of the great
dining in Copenhagen is of international cuisine. Particularly good
in Copenhagen are French and Asian restaurants.
Dining in Copenhagen is usually a leisurely affair and patrons
are encouraged to take their time and make a night of it. For
quicker eats, cafés and hot dog stands are very popular and a fun
way to meet people, or you can grab a fresh sandwich at one of the
city''s many bakeries. Stoget, Central Station, Grey Friars Square
are all hotspots for restaurants. Tivoli also has a great selection
of casual places to eat in a fun setting.
A service charge is included in the bill, but great service is
often rewarded with a tip. Save money by paying with cash, as many
restaurants charge a fee of between 3.75% and 5.75% for
transactions on foreign credit cards.
