Great value, multi-course, bistro communal dining with a time limit.

If you don't mind sharing a large communal table, a limited menu and being turfed out after an hour and half, Cofoco offers creditable bistro food at excellent prices.

Food and drink

The backbone of the menu, which is made up of nine choices, is French - think oysters or duck confit with the odd international and Scandinavian flourish. Choose from seven white and eight red French and Italian wines, most of the them offered by the glass as well as the bottle.

Recommended dishes

As with sister restaurant [node:172514], the dishes at Cofoco come from a roster of familiar, tried and tested French classics from coq au vin to duck confit. They are all well excecuted but will probably offer few surprises for seasoned diners.

Ambience

The large table makes dining here are bit of a lottery. You can find yourself fighting for space with sharp elbowed neighbours or enjoying banter with strangers and getting stuck into the communal spirit depending on everyone's mood. The decor is modern but rather too stark for my tastes and the fact you have a time limit for your sitting hardly lends itself to relaxed conviviality. The bill at the end goes a long way to mellowing your mood though.

Service

The service is perfunctory and rather strict if it looks like you're going to overrun your alloted time, but you get what you pay for.

Location

In the thick of the Vesterbro action, Cofoco is an ideal place to start a night out before hitting the nearby bars.

Price advice

Your choice is simple here: four, five or six courses for between 250 krone and 350 krone and you can add wine menus accordingly from 200 krone.
