We visited Marv og Ben on a whim, and were blown away by the amazing experience we had. Great ambiance, excellent attentive service and food which was out of this world, served with care by the chefs who prepared it, and a great wine card...to boot! This is a gem of a restaurant, located in central Copenhagen. We will definitely be back! Thank you Gustav and crew!More

With a top-rated restaurant, you can sometimes come away disappointed - not the case with Marv & Ben. The food was really well prepared in all ways, with memorable flavors and lovely presentation. The service was excellent; staff were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, striking the...right note. I would go back and recommend this restaurant to fellow foodies.More

Great location in the middle of the old part of Copenhagen. We had a table on the entrance level with a view to the kitchen activities through two sets of glass, so no noise. They have two menus with four or six courses. We had...six courses and added the wine menu. Excellent food, really tasty and visually elegant servings. Wine menu with one glass per serving, mostly cold climate européen wines with one exception a californian cab, which was totally misplaced. The service was kind and professional, but tended to be a bit too jovial. Over all a very good experience, the price/quality ratio is spot on.More

The restaurant has 2 floors, downstairs definitely looks cosier and more intimate compared to upstairs, where you sit in a room with many tables close to eachother. Unfortunately we sat upstairs (however we didn't know the difference prior to reservation). The 6-course menu was quite...tasty, however expected something more special than quail as a main course. Selected wines with the menu were ok, but the level of explanation was different compared to waiters. If you pay 600dkk for wines, these need to be top and have a good story. Don't mention what type of grape it is and which year, I can also read the bottle, but mention why this wine was selected to fit the specific course. This was a big disappointment after paying 2400 DDK for 2.More
