Great French kitchen and wine card. Had a Tuna and the house wine. A great start before the DJ started up the dance floor. Waiters are super cool- a bit crazy but with great smiles.

I have never been asked to leave a restaurant before and I am, actually, quite shocked. I was with a friend at this restaurant in the afternoon to have a glass of wine and peanuts, as the kitchen has closed already. We were sitting at a small little table in the window and after 2 hours the waitress asked us... More

Lamb chops, tuna steaks, french steak. All served with the french potato "Pomme Anne" and other garnitures. Last time the waiter made a mistake,... More

The female french waitress showed great skills in ignoring us guests. Arrogant and may I say ... very French. Service compris. Bien sur..so absolutely no tips.

The menu in Cafe Viggo changes every day. YOu do have a choice of several dishes in each of the courses, So no worries there. The food is typical French cuisine and well prepared. The atmosphere in the restaurant is modern with the walls decorated with classic French comic characters.

Our first night in Copenhagen we saw that the restaurant across the street was packed so we decided to try it the next day the food was good, they have a fix menu with a couple of options, portions are a bit small but that's normal for a french restaurant

Our first meal in copenhagen after getting settled into our apartment. Nice, casual atmosphere, and good food. There is nothing in particular that stands out about this place, as Copenhagen is teeming with similar cafes, but it is a solid neighborhood restaurant. Staff was friendly and food was very good. Family friendly atmosphere -- we had our five year along... More

Café Viggo is definitely one of those places. the menu is fairly straight forward - 4 appetizers, 4 main courses, 4 desserts. all written on a chalkboard in French and brought to each table (we wondered...

We popped in for lunch as we passed as thought it looked nice. We were not disappointed! The savoury pancakes here are amazing, we loved every bite. The waiter was so friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was relaxed. A great spot for a soaking up the vesterbro vibes and doing a bit of people watching. 10/10

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
