We arrived with no reservation and the staff were great and seated us at the bar with a cocktail while we waited. The food was fantastic and the staff passionately explain what everything is. We had the scallops, squid, plaice, crab and fish and chips - this was loads between two. It's quite expensive, but you definitely get what you... More

The place looks quite trashy, the restaurant is fully booked, the waiters are very friendly, the food is fantastic. We came at the fiskebar without a reservation and had no seating free, so we at the Bar. The food was very good - no it was not very good: it was fantastic. We had a small starter and then mussels...

This was our third visit to Kodbyens and every time it has been a treat. UK visitors may have seen it on Rick Stein's Long Weekends. Located in the heart of Vesterbro, the restaurant is no cheap eat, but is still good value for money, such is the quality of food on offer. For starters, the oysters and scallops were... More

We made a reservation online, immediately seated and never felt rushed, even though the place was packed. We ordered oysters, grilled king crab, fish&chips and vegetable entree. Very fresh and nicely prepared. Staff couldn't have been nicer and they ordered a cab for us at the end. Even if you don't eat here, come to the meat packing district to... More

I've taken my friends who were visiting me in Copenhagen to Fiskebar as I've hear so many good words about this place! And it didn't dissapoint me - the service was fantastic, food was amazing, prices ok for Copenhagen. As part of our experience we've received a quick tour in the kitchen presenting us how they work and who is... More

Their food is absolutely delicious! It's all very fresh and innovative, classic goodies with a twist. They normally take reservations but we didn't have one and got seated at the bar. It's good to note that they serve different size meals, there is a menu for medium dishes ( smaller) and main dishes ( regular size meal). I really appreciate... More

Delicious meal- the brill from the raw menu was incredible. Staff were so lovely and friendly, even asking us if we wanted a tour of the kitchen. It's not cheap (not many places on this great city are...) but we felt that it was new Nordic cuisine at a more affordable price.

Young and trendy restaurant in the meatpacking district. The highlight of the dinner were the cold starters;a great selection of oysters and other raw/marinated seafood. Delicious! Sevice was pleasant and quick all the way during the evening. However the main dishes left us indifferent; well executed but the taste was not quite there!

This restaurant is located in the meatpacking district. Therefore one would not expect to find a fish restaurant at this location. The interior is trendy with a large dinner bar, the atmosphere is noisy but nicely so . The dishes are great.

This restaurant is a short walk from the central station. It's located in the old meat market. It might sound an incongruous location for a fish restaurant and the decor might take a while to get used to as it's kind of white tile clean and a bit austere for my liking but the food will rock your taste buds....

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.
