The food here is exquisite-- if you like new and unique flavors. The service, appropriate for its Michelin rating. The environs, an Art next in the basement of a palace type structure. The culinary scene in Denmark is exploding and AOC is part of this scene. What is it about Scandinavia and its cuisine? It shares with the world flavor... More

Spectacular from start to finish from both the amazing food on offer to the fantastic staff and their in depth knowledge of each and every dish presented. A true fine fining, culinary extravaganza. Would love to... More

An amazing experience that one now expects from Danish fine dining - inventive and tantalizing food that engages the sight, smell, touch and taste. Excellent ambiance and faultless service. Any requests are accommodated; nothing is too much trouble. Superb gin and tonic. One leaves AOC fully sated and feeling like royalty. Go on - spoil yourself! you won't regret it.

If you want a good meal don't go here. If you want a great meal don't go here. If you want the culinary experience of a lifetime....THEN YOU MUST GO HERE!! This is by far without a doubt the best culinary adventure of my lifetime. We travel a lot and try to hit a Michelin rated restaurant in each destination... More

A | O | C was great! The service was nice, and the food was very good. Overall, it seemed a bit traditional for what I have come to expect from Michelin Starred restaurants. It was a really, really great meal, but it wasn't particularly experimental. The wine pairing could have been a bit more unusual, but the meal and... More

We came here for dinner with friends and I deliberately didn't look up the restaurant or look at the menu before hand as I want to take it all in during the visit and go in with an open mind. Two of us went all in and had the 9 courses with the 9 full glasses in the pairing menu... More

We chose the 9 course meal with the upgrade wine menu. We sat there for 5 hours, being pampered all along. With one or two exceptions, simply the best food experience of our lives. This is what distinguishes two Michelin stars from one: The minute attention, the carful build-up of the entire experience. Simply smashing. The service was immaculate. If... More

Not sure why this restaurant is not ranked higher on Tripadvisor, because this is top class, creative cooking served in a stylish setting. I opted for the "short" tasting menu and got a large variety of tasty, small dishes made from local ingredients, including scallops, lamb, delicious bread baked with flour ground on the premises, all perfectly presented. Sometimes the... More

It doesn't come much better than this. We had the shorter tasting menu having over done it the previous night at another Michelin restaurant (Studio). We really regretted not having had the longer menu here and the shorter one at Studio as this was exceptional.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

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.
