When it comes to food there are very few cities that offer the variety and excitement that you see in Copenhagen today. While there are 100s of restaurants and cafes out there we wanted to pick 18 amazing things to eat that you simply have to try before you die. You won't want to do these all in one go but make sure you get stuck into them while in Copenhagen...

1.Den Røde Cottage - Smoked creamcheese, salsify, sorrel and crispy pork

A michelin starred restaurant and this is one of the most incredible, unique and exciting plates of food you will ever taste.


2.Restaurant Schønnemann - Smørrebrød

Probably one of the foods that Copenhagen is best known for and if you want the very best version of it in a classical setting this is the spot.


3.Noma - Wild Asparagus with poached egg yolks and herbs

You'd have to expect the best restaurant in the world to be on the list. While the menu is constantly changing this is a dish from the gods.


4.Restaurant Viva - Seared Scallops

This restaurant boat is the perfect place to have seafood as it comes in all shapes and sizes. The Oysters are world class but go for the scallops as they are insanely good.


5.Cock’s & Cows - The Burgers

We named this the top burger in all of Copenhagen recently and from the picture below you can see why. Absolutely off the charts good and this place is a must visit.


6.Retour - Steak and chips

You'll have had 100s of steak and chips in restaurants all over the world but never as good as this. There is something insanely good about every aspect of the meal. The sauces are especially to die for.

7.Ismageriet - Rhubarb Ice Cream

Slightly off the beaten track but well worth the drive. Although there are some amazing flavours this one is like nothing you have ever eaten before.


8.Paludan Bogcafe - Sunday Brunch

This place is half library and half cafe and at the weekends the queue snaking out the door will tell you how good the food is. Huge plates of fruit and wonderful egg dishes make this an absolute must.


9.Doep - Hotdog With Stewed Kale

A spot that has put a new slant on the hotdog with healthy versions and all ingredients being 100% organic. A wonderful way to enjoy some food on the go.


10.Neighbourhood - Organic Pizza and cocktails

Not only are the pizzas in this cool spot all organic but their toppings are original and exciting. Throw in some of their awesome cocktails and you have great food and an awesome night out.


11.Øl & Brød - Salmon, potato and smoked cheese

You'd be forgiven for thinking the food in here is from a bygone era by looking at the menu. In reality they are cooking some of the freshest most modern food in Denmark while paying homage to the classics.


12.Nam Nam - Beef Rendang

Superb Asian cooking with huge flavours and fresh ingredients. The open kitchen makes this feel like a spectacle and the beef rendang is as good as anything you'll eat across the globe.


13.Botaniqdk - Raw Veggie Food Selection

Visit any capital in the world and you will mostly hear veggies complaining about the lack of options. This place serves incredible veggie, vegan and raw food with something for everybody.


14.Restaurant Mêlée - Beef Tartare

The food in here is all about the simple steps and the amazing ingredients. You will think you have died and gone to heaven when you taste this dish.


15.Kihoskh - The Croissant

When it comes to pastries we can all agree the best in the world are made right here in Copenhagen. While many will debate the best one we think you'd be foolish not to try this croissant. Off the charts good!


16.Meyers - The strawberry shortcake

When it comes to desserts served up in a classic French style this is easily the best in the capital. An absolute work of art every single time.


17.Amass - Homemade charcuterie

One of the very best restaurants in town with a huge following. When they rear their own pigs and make the charcuterie from scratch you know it is going to be something special and it sure is.


18.Barburrito - Pork Tacos

The only place in town to get some exciting Mexican food and their tacos are the perfect thing to have with a couple of beers and to catch up with friends. So so good.
