Found this place through TA and so glad I did! Staff was so welcoming and such a cozy place. We had the 4 course tasting menu and the steak was cooked perfectly. This place has been added to my regulars list! Thanks again

We have visited this little jam before and we’re so happy to return to Copenhagen to dine with them once again. Best mussels I have had in a very long time! They have renovated the place and it looks even cozier than before. So happy...that during these covid times they are still thriving! See you soon again!More

My friends and I decided last minute to visit the Olive since it was across the bar we having drinks at (The Globe). They happily seated us, even with a last minute call for a table of 5, which we were pleased to hear. I...had a salmon tartar and again the salmon filet, some of the best salmon I’ve had in Copenhagen after living here for 3/4 years. Staff was lovely, friendly and also well informed on the wines and food, which was a pleasant surprise for us! I’ll be back again for sure!More

Maybe we just made bad selections but our meal was much less good than expected from the reviews. Also, the price is listed as $15-$27 while the main course alone is DKK 185. Mushroom risotto was particularly disappointing with too few mushrooms and too much...cheese.More

We were in Copenhagen for the weekend and we a made the reservations for Saturday night. Expectations were quite high, since the reviews were pretty good. The restaurant is located in a quiet neighborhood and is very intimate and cozy. We ordered two appetizers, two...main courses and a dessert. Unfortunately, the Salmon tartar tasted so bad. The flavor of the salmon was completely covered by a huge amount of raw onion. We asked if it was possible to reorder the dish without onion, but the Chef answered no. The rest of the dishes were pretty good, but without particular mention. The creme brulee was the best part of the dinner, but for good desserts there are amazing bakeries in Copenhagen. Overall it has been a disappointing dinner. Please note that they charged the entire price of the Salmon, even of we sent the dish back...More

The food, I had the salmon as a main course and a delicious hot chocolate cake for dessert was delicious and I'll definitely...be back when traveling to Copenhagen in the future.More

It's quite a casual place, so don't think there'll be an issue with well-behaved kids :)
