We enjoyed a very pleasant dinner at Melée. No fuss - not with the service, not with the food, just classic well prepared dishes with really good ingredients put in front of you without the sales pitch/explanation. Very good wine. Busy but cosy bistro atmosphere.

On the recommendation of a friend I booked this restaurant for a reunion with former work mates and it turned out to be a real winner. About 30m from Gammel Kongevej smack bang in the centre of Frederiksberg. Friendly staff who interact with the guest and take care of your every need, but the real treat comes when the food... More

A little restaurant, down to earth. They serve well prepared dishes with a modern twist. Good food for a decent price.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of one of Norway's most famous chefs. It was good, but didn't quite live up to our expectations. First of all - we knew this was not a very formal place, but it was a lot more informal than expected. We're talking waiters in shorts and sneakers. It's also pretty small, with tiny... More

Melee is my favorite restaurant in Frederiksberg, I have been here several times and love their onglet and good taste in different interesting wines. You can sit outside and enjoy the quiet street and the light bulbs in different colors or enjoy the vibrant atmosphere inside. You can either choose the full menu (and eat all night) but many people... More

In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
