The Best Places to Eat and Drink in Copenhagen in 2020

Copenhagen offers visitors a huge range of dining options from top-level, Michelin starred extravagance to delicious street food. The focus on preparing quality, local ingredients and giving traditional recipes a modern spin makes the Danish capital one of the most exciting food cities in the world. Here are our pick of places with the best food in Copenhagen: 

#1 Noma  

Regarded by many as the best restaurant in the world, René Redzepi’s Noma has garnered two Michelin stars and international acclaim, putting innovative Nordic cuisine on the culinary map.  Tables are in high demand but if you get lucky this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with a price tag to match.

Schønnemann has been around since 1877 and serves an extensive, lunchtime-only, menu of classic Danish cuisine all accompanied by their homemade schnappsEverything from the food to the elegant, wood-panelled dining room reflects the restaurants long history, and although at times a little touristy, it is still a delicious, great value dining option.

#3 Harry’s Place  

Copenhagen’s numerous hot dog stands (‘pølsevogn’) have been popping up for almost a century and remain an integral part of Copenhagen’s street food scene. Harry’s Place, located on the edge of the Nørrebo district, has been in business since 1965, and continues to impress locals and tourists. Try their signature sausage (the ‘Børge’) washed down the traditional way with a cup of chocolate milk.

#4 Meyer’s Bageri  

No visit to Copenhagen would be complete without tasting the traditional Danish pastries. Respected chef Claus Meyer’s eponymous bakeries can be found in several locations around town and are the place to go for his celebrated cinnamon swirls (‘kanelsnelge’) which come topped with a generous dollop of chocolate.
