I was here with some friends in connection with the Copenhagen dining week - if you have not tried this it is really something you should look up. Well back to the restaurant - it is a very cozy setting so the restaurant is quite small and placed a couple of steps down from street level, and is actually very... More

The Bib gourmand they have received is Well deserved. We had a 4 course meal, where every dish was excellent. Prices are not cheap, but equals the level. Baked potato with lumpfish roe as first course, then a dish with salted cod, perfectly cooked veal and finally dessert. Personel were kind & professionel. A perfect evening out.

Loved visiting Marv & Ben. The food was lovely and elegant. My partner and I opted for the same three course option - as we had eaten a large, late lunch. We were really impressed by the white chocolate and lime dessert, which was delicious! The atmosphere was peaceful and the staff lovely. They had a problem with their card... More

We both took all dishes on the menu except the dessert and were very satisfied with everything. The menu changes often, but Marv og Ben delivers really good food at decent prices. The flounder and the veal tail in particular were excellent. I even managed to not dislike the leek that came with the flounder (I don't like leeks ...... More

We had our pre-cinema dinner last Friday at 6 in Marv & Ben. The restaurant was less than half full when we left at a quarter to 8, which was a bit surprising. We had bought a deal which meant that we paid only ⅔ of full price for the food. The food was okay and nicely presented, however it... More

Loved this place. The food was delicious and ambience was great. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quality Danish food experience at a not-to-expensive price.

Food is good and beautiful, even though there was no surprise. But the portion is too little and bread is not always supplied properly. My stomach is not really satisfied finally.

In our quest to find restaurants that came as close as possible to the Noma experience, we tracked down chefs that have studied and worked there. This place was one such restaurant and we found it was a cunning strategy to guarantee an amazing meal. This restaurant is located a few streets away from the tourist hub and takes a... More

The restaurant is located in a nice area. The atmosphere is plain and simple but wellcoming. The service was excellent and the prices are decent. The winelist is limited but the wines we tried was very good. The menu consists of starter sized dishes and 4-5 composes a full dinner. The food is according to our opinion where the problems...

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
