Having read rave reviews, we booked for dinner. Beautuful interior with crisp whute tablecloths & sparkling glasses. Hubby ordered the grilled prawns as a starter which were very good, then the Bouillabaisse (which was dark brown & tasted burnt) and the grilled sardines (4 in the dish) which were rancid and obviously very old or had been refrozen a few...

Our waiter had problems explaining the special dinner menu of the night (3 courses). You might think that the restaurant briefs their staff on time for dinner guests to arrive. We got started with brioche, which was hard. After asking whether we could have some other bread we were told no. The fish soup was good but nothing more. The... More

My lobster bisque was delicious. Three of the four of us ate the soup. I ordered the lemon sole which was very good. Place was very busy and tried to make reservations for the night before but couldn't. Food is fresh and nice ingredients.

Nice dinner with some business colleagues. Service was quick and attentive, though some of the drinks were a little slow to come. The scallop ceviche was awesome! The Lemon Sole was good, but seemed to be under seasoned. Overall, a nice meal in a good atmosphere.

We went here on the day of our arrival last week.A busy place by 8pm. We had already pre booked and both had the sardines and the bouillabaisse which were both very good.The price we paid was the most over the 3 nights we were there but I have no complaints. Service was good and efficient.Worth a visit

I went to Fishmarket last weekend. The place was packed, so as a single person I had dinner at the bar. Room is bistrot-like, with cream walls and vaguely belle-epoque fixtures, reminiscent of Artisanal in NYC. Began with bisque, which was excellent, and had the lemon sole as a main, which was also excellent. Service was prompt. A little on... More

We chanced upon this place around the corner, and since we are seafood lovers, "FISHMARKET" called out to me. Obviously it wasn't a market, but served nice fresh seafood platters, and we also had the lunch special which was AMAZING! no words can describe the food i tasted from the starter to the dessert, i was pleasantly surprised by even...

We have been to Fish Market with my daughter. I think this place is not really suitable for kids, there's was no other kid then my daughter :) and the menu was not really designed for kids. But the food is great, if you like shrimp, mussels, langoustine etc... wonderful. Strongly recommended and booking is mandatory.

An exceptional meal while traveling on business. Last minute reservations were accommodated. Enjoyed fresh Sole expertly prepared by the chef paired with a dry Resiling. I will return.

Very pleasant atmosphere; good quality food but not great. Tries to be French but never quite hits the mark.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
