I had dinner with my wife last night (June 16) at restaurant Grønnegade, in the street of the same name in the heart of Copenhagen, close to Kongens Nytorv and the Nørreport train station. This romantic small restaurant has been in existence for 40 years in one of the oldest houses in Copenhagen, built in 1689. It can host up to 46 people on two floors. It was packed last night and the tables are quite close to each other but the noise level was never too loud for quiet conversation.
We took advantage of an Eurobonus Deal package with the five-course gourmet menu for 299 DKK instead of 550 (Monday-Wednesday), wine and drinks not included. The service by eager young ladies was efficient and friendly, and the courses well described. We had in fact seven courses. First an amuse-bouche of well spiced veal tartar, followed by marinated mackrel, fried weever fish, lamb breast confit with a very concentrated sauce, and slow cooked veal and veal shank (more detailed description on the web site). All portions were small but delicious and well presented, modern french/scandinavian cuisine without the hype, and we were not hungry at the end... We got an extra dessert (crème brûlée) before the main dessert (white chocolate mousse with liquorice and rhubarb). Two kinds of excellent homemade bread, one with anise.
As for the drinks, we started with a Kir Royal (125 DKK each), a glass of white Fat Monk Australian Chardonnay (115 DKK each) and a bottle of Givry 1er Cru Marolle 2009 at 475 DKK.
The wine prices are a bit on the high side with few bottles under 500 DKK but this is not unusual in Copenhagen... They were all excellent.
We ended up very pleased and happily paid 821,5 DKK each (the Eurobonus Deal was worthwhile), which is a reasonable price for a good quality meal in Denmark. We will certainly return!
