High-class bistro food in an intimate setting.

Michelin-standard, French-cum-European fine dining choices are legion in Copenhagen but this tiny place, founded by the accomplished Rasmus Oubæk is the best place to get it for less and in unfussy surroundings. OK, it may only have earned a 'bib gourmand' rather than an actual star but at these prices who's bothered?

Food and drink

This place is a fine example of largely French classic fine dining food featuring tried and tested French classics. My morels with gnocchi and my duck confit were both exemplary.

Recommended dishes

The often changing menu means there are no signature dishes as such but you should find famliar classic dishes executed faultlessly.

Ambience

This is a tiny place, which does feel a little cramped, especially in the basement area overlooking the kitchen range. While the tables do feel close together - and you'll find yourself involuntarily earwigging in on your neighbours' conversations - it is also cosy and warm.

Service

Everything arrived swiftly and with a smile when I ate here.

Location

On a nondescript street, the location is unremarkable but it is a short walk from Kongens Nytorv and the hubbub of Nyhavn.

Price advice

The classic four-course menu is very good value at 400 krone given the standards here.

Tables to book

Try to get a table upstairs if you can rather than in the tiny basement, unless you want to watch the kitchen at work, which appeals in its own way.
