French Restaurants in Copenhagen

There are more French eateries in Copenhagen than you might think, ranging from the typically exclusive French restaurant to Parisian-style brasseries and lively bistros.

Top of our list is the reassuringly expensive Kong Hans Kælder, an outrageously expensive, Michelin-starred institution located in medieval vaults near Kongens Nytorv. Connoisseurs of good French wine can marvel at the many vintages of Le Sommelier, another spot to dine in style and luxury.

In contrast, nearby Pastis takes a more modern approach to French dining and is modeled on a Parisian bistro. Similarly informal, L'Education Nationale in Copenhagen's Latin Quarter offers real French cooking without the frills-though there's not much space between the red-and-white tablecloths.

Residential neighborhood Østerbro is the location for many of Copenhagen's French restaurants, with a better chance of getting a table (call ahead anyway) and reasonably-priced set menus at smaller eateries with both romance and character. Old-fashioned Carte Blanche's classic 3-course menu is a real catch and ideal for a romantic date, while Le Saint Jacques offers a similarly intimate atmosphere.

Regional restaurants include old-fashioned Restaurant Alsace, with specialties from the French-Austrian region, and La Galette, that specializes in Breton's trademark buckwheat pancakes-with a variety of toppings. Not on our list but worth a mention, Lê Lê nhà hàng is a Vietnamese restaurant that takes inspiration from the Asian country's French colonial roots-evident in the decor as well as the cuisine.
