The menu in Cafe Viggo changes every day. YOu do have a choice of several dishes in each of the courses, So no worries there. The food is typical French cuisine and well prepared. The atmosphere in the restaurant is modern with the walls decorated with classic French comic characters.

Our first night in Copenhagen we saw that the restaurant across the street was packed so we decided to try it the next day the food was good, they have a fix menu with a couple of options, portions are a bit small but that's normal for a french restaurant

Our first meal in copenhagen after getting settled into our apartment. Nice, casual atmosphere, and good food. There is nothing in particular that stands out about this place, as Copenhagen is teeming with similar cafes, but it is a solid neighborhood restaurant. Staff was friendly and food was very good. Family friendly atmosphere -- we had our five year along... More

we are living Copenhagen for a month so we have a chance to take it easy and search out some special places to eat. Café Viggo is definitely one of those places. the menu is fairly straight forward - 4 appetizers, 4 main courses, 4 desserts. all written on a chalkboard in French and brought to each table (we wondered...

We popped in for lunch as we passed as thought it looked nice. We were not disappointed! The savoury pancakes here are amazing, we loved every bite. The waiter was so friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was relaxed. A great spot for a soaking up the vesterbro vibes and doing a bit of people watching. 10/10

Would recommend for family's, couples or friends to visit and have a enjoyable night. Food was very delicious and reasonable priced Very filling and had time to let the food go down... More

We had breakfast on a Wednesday morning at Viggo's. My omelette was a bit nauseous so I asked for some bread which didn't arrive for a good ten minutes, so by the time we got it, the food was cold. There are much nicer places to eat in the area, so I would just avoid this one.

This restaurant was recommended by the receptionist at the hotel where we stayed. We were pleased with many things: - the menu comes on a board and it was in French :-) - the food was delicious - the service was amazing. It is a pity we do not remember the name of the Greek waitress there - we had... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Frederiksberg
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
