Great food, great wine at this pricey Michelin-starred stalwart.

Relatively under-hyped, Herman suffers on the one hand by not being [node:172982] and on the other by competing with a lot of other classic fine dining places in town but it should be on your list because the standards are high and the location is lovely. The fact the chef has served time in San Sebastien's three-Michelin-starred Arzak says a lot.

Food and drink

Despite the occasional, almost compulsory modern Scandinavian flourish, the food here is pretty classical both in terms of ingredients and technique. It's very polished and consistent while the wine offering is well chosen and expertly curated by sommelier Jacob Kocemba.

Recommended dishes

Bacon and onion dumplings, venison with mushrooms and smoked marrow and Vendee duck with green strawberries and peas are good examples of what you can expect.

Ambience

High end, without being opulent, it's not as much fun as near neighbour [node:172826]. It feels a bit more like a business lunch kind of place.

Service

I felt welcome and well advised here, especially by the sommelier.

Location

Inside the swanky Nimb hotel and right by Tivoli gardens, this is a great location. Plus there's a couple of great options in the cocktail and wine bars on the premises for pre or post meal drinkies.

Price advice

The lunch menu (three courses for 395 krone/ four courses for 475 krone) offers great value compared to the evening one.
