We were exploring Copenhagen by foot and passed the Kong Hans Kælder restaurant - we were interested, stopped and tried to take a look inside, when a very friendly guy named Tim asked us in and showed us the whole place, incl. kitchen etc.! He also told us about the history of the restaurant. We were so impressed that we... More

Bring your checkbook, but you will leave amazed. It's a set menu with great wine pairings. Ken, our server was excellent. If you have a big party, go for the Kitchen table. I can't wait to go back.

Some key things about this restaurant, it is absolutely romantic and intimate, a very historic restaurant in a beautiful vaulted cellar in the heart of the city. We dined here during a celebration of 50 years - a meal intended to showcase the talented chefs who have graced these arches with their food. After reading a little about what to... More

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in this restaurant. The service was very good and the ambience of the restaurant is really lovely. We had the tasting menu. The food was good, although we had pigeon for the main course, which I had not tried before and I have now discovered is not really my thing. I loved... More

Service was excellent as well.... More

It was a long drawn tasting menu, and some sort of a tribute to the 4 chefs over 4 decades. While the idea was great, there was way too much food. We lost count of the number of dishes, there was no clarity on what was coming up and we were practically exhausted by the end of the dinner, which... More

This was my second visit to Kong Hans (first time was in 2007), and it was a great experience. Almost all courses was of the highest class, and basically second to none. The service was as it should be at this kind of restaurant and the atmosphere and surroundings is very nice. Price of course at the very high end,... More

This restaurant is special. It is a tasting menu only, so this may not appeal to some patrons. We found the food to be diverse and consistently well-prepared. It included cheeses, quail egg with caviar, egg shell with yolk and infused asparagus, pork belly with a tasty sauce, a shrimp tart, monk fish and many little extra surprises along the... More

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.
