Looking for a place to take your loved one for a romantic dinner whilst in Copenhagen? The city has no shortage of contenders, both traditional and more offbeat. Copenhagen's most romantic restaurants are generally small, intimate, and exclusive, so reservation well in advance is essential to avoid disappointment.
With its idyllic surroundings, bags of history and tradition, and a menu that's classy without being audacious, Den Gule Cottage is well worth making the 30-minute drive north to Dyrehaven for, especially on a long, balmy summer evening.
Era Ora has been one of Copenhagen's most exclusive and delectable Italian eateries for some decades now, and its setting, amid the pretty canals of Christianshavn, is simply the icing on the cake.
Copenhagen has some excellent French restaurants, and we've selected two of its more low-key establishments, Carte Blanche in Østerbro and the Latin Quarter's Mon Amour, where the rustic French kitchen and a discreet ambience ought to prove the winning combination.
French food with a Nordic twist is offered at two stalwarts of Copenhagen's restaurant scene, the historic Restaurant Grønnegade--located in a 17th-century building, one of the city's oldest--and Frederiks Have, whose delightful covered courtyard overlooks Frederiksberg Have. Likewise, Orangeriet in Kongens Have manages to combine disarmingly simple menus with the perfect garden location.
We know that romantic dining means different things to different couples, so we've added two less obvious choices in the lively Nørrebro district of Copenhagen. Oysters are served with the casual panache of a port in the Canary Islands at Oysters&Grill, while wonderfully simple and homely Italian dishes are served in fresh, informal surroundings at Spiseri.
