This evening, the waiters were rather stressed as they had to attend not only the indoor area but also two separate outdoor areas which severely influenced our overall experience. Simply put, we waited way too long for the main course. Otherwise nice service but obviously...More

This is a warm and cozy restaurant at the bottom of a beautiful church. We had the sample platter and it was delicious. I finally found pickled herring. The fries were super yummy and they had a kids menu.

The small square that surrounds this restaurant is very nice and the food is wonderful, however the service was quite slow. The traditional Danish dishes are authentic and the fries are amazing.

blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well

‘Maven – Restaurant & Wine bar’ is a down-to-earth eatery in the Nikolaj Exhibition Building; an old church right in Copenhagen’s solar plexus.

We offer quality wines and good beer at honest prices and classic dishes with an elegant twist, freshly made from the best ingredients.

The place has borrowed the old nickname for the Nikolaj Square; in the 19th Century this was the home of the city’s butcher shops and thus referred to by the locals as ‘Maven’, literally meaning ‘the Stomach’.

We have removed the bloody traces and aired the location, but the informal charm is still here. We treat the stomach without overdoing the gastronomical ambitions.
