Stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting Copenhagen. After a tiring and cold day shopping we were very happy they were able to accommodate us without a prior reservation. The atmosphere was excellent. Cozy and warm and friendly in a French sort of way. We were very impressed with the quality of our food. French Onion Soup was delicious, beef bourguignon... More

Went there a few days ago with a minor group. Credit for the very french interior! I loved the union soup I got as a starter. Round and not to fatty. Though, I was a bit surprised by cod I got - it was massed into the the potatoes. It was good but a bit strange (I figure it is... More

Popped in here for a drink we didnt eat but the food others were being served looked very nice. It was also very popular with quite a few people turning up for lunch. There are a few tables outside on the street nicely in the sun. Sit there and watch the world go by. Around 50DKK for a large beer.... More

Whilst waiting for our table at Väkst restaurant -one street down- we decided to have a glass of Cremant at the nice and cosy looking venue. The Belgian manager is very friendly and made the bar available for a sit. The atmosphere seemed nice and the food being delivered to the tables looked yummy and well arranged. We enjoyed our...

Very French, delicious, and a real treat while visiting Copenhagen. Beware...no English is spoken & there's not a word of English on the menu so while that adds to the ambiance, if you're not fluent in Danish (or mildly fluent) or French, ordering may be an adventure. I loved it!

Oh yeah!!! Not knowing where to have dinner we luckily stumbled into L'Educacion Nationale in the old downtown shopping district. Although apprehensive, we looked at their menu and decided to stay. The place was completely unpretentious, and old world but had a friendly staff that helped us through the menu. We ordered cheeses, mussels, a delightful steak tartare, and a... More

I had the "lapin" it was tasty but expensive for two truly small bites of rabbit. I'm just not sure the price is justified here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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.
