Expert review of Les Trois Cochons

Some of Copenhagen's best-value set menu bistro dining.

Don't expect massive choice at Trois Cochons - you get a couple of choices from the menu of the day, but do expect polished French bistro dishes and terrific value.

Food and drink: 

French bistro classics are the staples here, served with robust pichets of red or white (there is also a bottle wine list to choose from too).

Recommended dishes: 

Les Trois Cochons isn't trying to break the mould so a revolving menu of classics - like foie gras, roast poussin, ham terrine, steak frites - is what you'll find here.

Ambience: 

Smart and modern, the dining room is nice enough. Always full when I've visited, this is a bustling, busy place.

Service: 

Efficient, perhaps sometimes a little brusque, the service is much like the food. It delivers what it promises without much flourish.

Location: 

It's tucked out in Vesterbro, so it is a mission to get to from the centre but it is worth considering all the same for the excellent value it offers.

Price advice: 

The fixed, three-course evening menu is one of the city's great dining bargains, very welcome given Copenhagen's reputation for being a pricey city.
