1. Mielcke & Hurtigkarl

Mielcke & Hurtigkarl is located in a listed building in the beautiful The Royal Danish Horticultural Gardens, which date back to 1830. The presentation of the food on the plates as well as the decor is seriously imaginative.

Sitting here on a bright spring day looking out at the gardens is a real treat.

2. Khun Juk

Khun Juk is a charming Thai restaurant, with cosy and intimate rooms for colder months, and in summer there’s outdoor seating in their delightful courtyard. It’s an absolute gem in the city, with atmospheric lighting and dishes good enough to share.

3. Gaarden & Gaden

Follow the giant neon-red wine droplet above the door into this snug wine bar that also serves up tasty dishes to share and natural wine. They have at least 500 different wines in the cellar, and staff are alway happy to suggest something nice to celebrate a special occasion.

In the evening, the vibe from the cozy lighting flows out unto busy Nørrebrogade, which is always busy with customers in the warm summer months.

4. Il Buco

What seems like an old warehouse from the outside is actually an Italian dream when you step inside. The tables at Il Buco are close together in the cosy space, which is lit by a bunch of candles in the evening. Its rustic atmosphere, exciting open kitchen and menu of mainly organic dishes makes it perfect for date night in style.

5. Enomania

Who could resist falling in love over a creamy risotto with artichokes, homemade Italian sausage and pecorino cheese and a glass of great Italian red wine? This cosy wine bar and Italian eatery is a must for wine lovers. There’s top Italian wines from Piedmont as Gaja and Roberto Voerzio, Tuscany, and more.
