When there for dinner, fantastic place to go, nice bar, super service and excellent food, eat in the "kitchen" se the chef prepare your food, one of the best atmosphere in Copenhagen

We went to Geist as our first stop on our culinary tour of Copenhagen. The restaurant is set back from the street, and has nice dimly lit entrance. We were greeted nicely, and checked our coats. We were seated promptly. The recommendation from the staff was to have three to four dishes each. We were happy that we settled on... More

Third time here. Sampled across the menu...see the pictures. Great stuff, tight, elegant and very tasty servings. A lot of vegetarian options.

We have been here with a larger group and had a pre-selected menu. It was lovely from start to end. Food was tasty and presented in a fancy way. The place is rather casual, and the menu was contemporary chic. A bit pricey, but worth a visit with friends for the athmosphere and also for the food.

The savory dishes we ordered were interesting and really tasty. However, the portion sizes were very small (and none of our party of 4 are big quantity eaters) and terribly expensive for what they were. The wine was very expensive too. We were all really excited by the dessert menu but all 3 that our party tried were disappointing. Such... More

I have to be honest, I only went here because it was featured on one of my favorite "housewife" reality shows (I know, I know, so lame) but wow, what a great choice, Ladies! The food was really out of our "comfort zone", which was good- who wants to go to another country and eat what you would at home??!... More

There's no question that Geist offers spectacular food. The caviar over avocado "carpaccio" in particular was amazing to look at and eat. The dining room was lively and friendly, if a bit loud for us older folk. If I had a quibble, it would be that the young staff wasn't well versed in service (this seemed to be a common... More

This was undoubtedly the nicest place we ate at in Copenhagen and it was recommended too. Loved the open kitchen area and seating at the bar overlooking it. We had 3 courses each. 5 * for spinach, celeriac, duck, blackberry and salted wasabi cream toffee dishes and 4* for cauliflower (see online menu for description of each dish). Surprise was... More

We were recommended this place by some friends. The place was nice! Ordered the mushroom soup and the pork belly. The soup was very strong in flavour and left me parched. The pork belly also had mushroom which was an overpowering flavour. Food was good but the mushrooms were bit strong and salty tasting.

Our night out at this restaurant was a positive experience with only minor flaws. We were welcomed by a friendly staff member, and our overcoats placed in the wardrobe. As we were a bit early and one of the company had not arrived, we had a beer at the bar. Later, we were seated comfortably at one of the round... More

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.
