We came across Obelix by chance, while walking around. It was full of locals, so we decided to have dinner. It was a good choice. We had burgers, chicken and salmon salads. Dishes were big and tasty and beer was great. We sat outside, although it was a bit cold, but they had heaters and blankets, so it was just... More

Brunch was bad and coffee tasted old. This place has a cool name but that's it. Would not go there again.

We are staying in a room just above this place and it is very popular with the locals, especially for having a beer after work. Tuborg is reduced for happy hour. We had brunch here this morning and it was very good, and the coffee is free before 10 am.

We came here for dinner one evening, it was a little bit cool but we were happy to sit outside. This ended up being a great decision as the place gives out really nice individual blankets for you to use. we had a load of really nice beers from the extensive beer menu before our dinner which was exceptional.

Cafe Obelix was recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel, the First Hotel Mayfair, and was a welcome addition to our portfolio of "go to" places in Copenhagen. We enjoyed a late breakfast/early lunch here on two separate occasions and were not disappointed either time. Their breakfast and lunch menus overlap timing-wise which gave us a... More

A lot of different beer to choose from in a nice setting. Only had a beer and no food. But the place seemed to be attracting people for food as well.

In a small place, nice terrace and ten different kinds of beers on draft. You have to ask the beverages inside, they do not serve on tables. On the good side, you can order meals until late. The meals are quite simple, dishes of pasta, burguers and nachos, but for a late dinner can be okay. It is an option... More

We have visited this cafe several times during our støy in Copenhagen.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
