Delicious dishes, elegant interior design, and Copenhagen’s stylish crowd are the words that could describe Madklubben best. Located at Vesterbro, the chic restaurant is definitely a fit to the hip atmosphere of the area.

The place is packed even during the week with locals and tourists.
Restaurant Sushi Nørregade
Sushi experts are well aware that finding the right place where their beloved Japanese dish is cooked in proper ways isn’t easy, especially when traveling. Well, Sushi Nørregade is one of these places and is located in the heart of the city center, a five-minute walk from Nørreport station. The restaurant’s facade isn’t fancy, nor is the interior decoration, but the food is delicious and the waiters always willing to help you will make your day.
Finding a good pizza is often a difficult task, except, of course, if you’re visiting Italy. But the people behind café Piccolina in Aarhus have somehow made it and their dishes can satisfy even the more demanding customers. The reason why all their dishes are so tasty is that all their recipes are made with ingredients imported from Italy. Fresh salads, warm pizzas, and lasagna with ham and mozzarella cheese are only some of the plates visitors will find on Piccolina’s menu.
Kok & Vin
Customers feel at home when entering the warm and cozy atmosphere of the French bistro, which fits approximately 50 guests. Located in the picturesque city center of Odense, Kok & Vin is a great destination for those who want to take a break and soak up the city’s atmosphere. Besides French specialties, the elegant restaurant serves different types of French cheese and scrumptious desserts.
With its great menu and relaxed atmosphere, Pasfall has fairly earned a place in locals’ hearts and a position in the Michelin Guide 2017. With so many milestones in Thomas Pasfall’s career, including the title of “The Chef of The Year” back in 2000, it comes as no surprise that the gourmet restaurant serves tasteful and high-quality dishes.
Mortens Kro (translates to “Mortens Inn” in English) counts already 2o years in the gastronomy scene of Denmark and is considered one of the best restaurants in Aalborg. Its long and diverse menu includes Scandinavian recipes as well international cuisine dishes, all cooked with high-quality ingredients by Morten Nielsen, the chef and owner of the chic restaurant. Visitors shouldn’t miss out checking their remarkable selection of French wines and champagnes.
The luxurious restaurant offers a unique experience to its customers not only because of the excellent food but also due to its special location. Situated just by the waterfront, Fusion offers a stunning view to its visitors, who can gaze upon Limfjord and the Aalborg Waterfront. The tasty dishes are cooked with both European and Asian ingredients, as the vision of the people behind the restaurant is to combine these two diverse food cultures and serve gourmet dishes of a unique taste.
Café Vivaldi – Ro’s Torv
Café Vivaldi is the right place for a warm cup of coffee, a hearty brunch, or a juicy burger. Due to its central location, it is tourists’ favorite place for a pitstop after exploring the city center, while locals usually choose it for a relaxed Sunday morning.
