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!

Utilising a half price voucher through SAS Eurobonus programme we visited the restaurant to sample their 5 course tasting menu plus decided to take the wine parings.

The restaurant is in one of oldest buildings in Copenhagen. Beautiful inside, we were warmly greeted and immediately seated. The staff are very attentive and extremely knowledgable about the food and the wines served.

So every interesting flavours, the food may not be to everyone's tastes so I'd recommend speaking to them before booking as it's not the lowest price restaurant in town but if it's a special occasion worth the extra.

We were treated to two extra courses on the house and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The menu changes regularly so don't expect the same dishes if you've eaten here before.

People have commented on the price of the wines, at around 100kr per glass okay, not the cheapest in town but certainly not the most expensive you have to remember to get quality staff and quality ingredients it doesn't come cheap.

If you want a good quality meal in a beautiful location with service to match then go for it. Enjoy

excellent food and superb service! This is modern french/nordic cuisine but without being too absurd, as has become the idea for some top end restaurants. Emphasis is on high quality ingredients and taste!

This is a wonderful restaurant squeezed into a very old and lovely building. The stairs are vertiginous but visitors are rewarded by consistently excellent food and a staff who are very knowledgeable about the food and the wine they serve.

Everybody say the city is expensive and well, it is - this restaurant is no exception, however the quality of the food on their gourmet menu is high and so is the presentation of all dishes. I am totally in agreement with the way they describe themselves on their website, a place with high ambitions and cosy atmosphere, they clearly aim high with their food. Portions are not big, but again this is not a chain or a tourist place. It is not a Michelin-restaurant either though, so to keep with what are just ambitions for now I would probably revise the prices of their wine - even the gourmet menu charges as much for 3 glasses of wine (around 48€) as they do for food (48€ for 3 courses), which I found a bit outrageous, and I come from a place where we know about wine and produce great labels too. Hence the reason for the 3 stars, a balance between this and the food. Having tried other places in the city where I have paid a lot for less quality and effort, I'd happily give full marks for a more balanced approach on wines.
