Restaurants in Copenhagen

Traditional Copenhagen favourites range from herring-stuffed smørrebrød open sandwiches to meatballs and fresh fish. Copenhagen's numerous Michelin-starred restaurants add French flair to Danish flavours – try Noma on Christianshavn in Copenhagen K. Locals enjoy al fresco dining in summer along waterside Gammel Strand, also in Copenhagen K, and Danish design at Restaurant Jacobsen in Klampenborg. Head out of the city for fine meals along the coast. Kitchens generally open until 10pm, and a 10% tip is normal.
