This is a very traditional Danish restaurant inside the Tivoli gardens that appears to specialize in smørrebrød. Having heard all about the dish on our walking tour the day before we decided to try it and were pretty disappointed. The menu had a ton of options, but it felt very overpriced for what was offered. The sandwiches we ordered were... More

Traditional and very busy restaurant in Tivoli. They have managed to maintain the atmosphere and the setting is very nice.

It is located in Tivoli Gardens and serves delicious traditional Danish food - the service is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderfully cozy and relaxing. Note: you will need to pay Tivoli admission to enter the park and dine at Groften -... More

Groften in Tivoli gardens is not the best restaurant in Tivoli gardens by far, but it is a place to go just for the atmosphere .

We pre-booked early for a table at the Groften during the Christmas Fair season and it was worth it. The decor has hardly changed from when it first opened in the 1920s and it is located in an ideal place for visiting Tivoli Gardens first then relaxing and eating in the Groften afterwards. After a recommendation we ate the traditional... More

Grøften serves classic Danish food, and that in a very cozy atmosphere, that can be compared a bit with the German beerhouses. During Christmas they have a buffet with danish Smørrebrød (Open sandwiches) and and we went there on boxing day and despite our high expectations, we did NOT leave nothing but happy and satisfied....and very full. The food was... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
