Description: Chez Bruno - La Maison du Boeuf is a small cosy brasserie with a more relaxed and informal atmosphere than a classic brasserie. High quality, good ingredients, classic cooking methods characterize the food, and when the chef is particularly happy, you will hear him sing French songs in the kitchen. Chez Bruno also offers a wide selection of quality wines and champagnes from France.

“Very Good Indeed”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

We didn't see this restaurant at its best, because the Saturday theatre crowd (the theatre being right next door) were out in force, the place was packed and the two very pleasant front of house staff were frankly overworked. That said the meal was excellent and notably reasonably priced in a relatively expensive city. Sadly we didn't get to meet Bruno, who must have been exhausted by the time the theatregoers had been fed. We'd certainly go again, but we would time our visit more carefully.

“Hidden treasure”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Chez Bruno is nestled in a small side road off Gammel Kongevej next door to the Det Ny theatre, and is only a 5-10 minute walk from Vesterport st and Tivoli.

It is an intimate little place, with attractive décor and a relaxed ambience. On the night we went, it emptied as pre-theatre diners headed for the show next door so it was undeservedly quiet. The food was very, very good. I opted for the scallops with vegetable ravioli followed by the fish of the day, which was monkfish with clams and risotto. Both were tasty, well executed dishes that oozed class with great presentation and flavours.

By CPH standards, Chez Bruno is well priced, especially considering the quality of cooking. The wine list is disappointingly limited but still caters for most tastes.

If you are looking for a French bistro, look no further. Oh, and the service was immaculate - friendly but discreet and professional.

Way too quiet and deserves to be packed - try it!!!

This is a hidden gem among a lot of restaurants in Copenhagen! We felt a good atmosphere entering the restaurant.The waitress had good knowledge about wineselection and we even had a little winetasting before the main course. The food was made with great care. We highly recommend this lovely place! Very good value for money and they also gave us extra attention and service troughout our stay there.

“Perfection...”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

everything was so delicious and delicate! We had a starter and a main dish and it was so good that we couldn't stop ourselves and continued with dessert. The right decision ;)
The waitress ist very friendly and trully recommends what she personally thinks is the best (and she was right!). Bruno is the chef himself and dude, Bruno DOES know how to cook!
This restaurant is absolutely recommended!

“Little gem”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We were recommended this place by a friend. We booked online for Sunday evening for a party of 5. Small but very friendly. Food was excellent. Our party had a mixture of scallops, steak, beef, and fresh fish (monkfish cheeks). Waitress very helpful with wine selection (by the glass) to partner the food. Everything was excellent, and the prices very good value. The French owner Bruno is also the chef, and has only had the place for 6 months. When the cooking was finished he came and had a chat with us and we could see how proud he is of the place. It deserves to do well, highly recommended.
