PATÉ PATÉ

A favourite with Danish young professionals, this former slaughterhouse and second-hand bookshop turned restaurant was inspired by owner Kenn Husted’s culinary experiences across France, Spain and Morocco.The atmosphere is cosy and the food excellent – particularly sharing dishes such as the harissa-roasted chicken with spicy carrots and savoy cabbage. Stop by the corner of cookbooks on your way out for a dose of Danish culinary inspiration.

The name of this rustic restaurant in the heart of the city, part of Hotel SP34, means ‘growth’. Inspired by nature, its interior resembles a greenhouse, resplendent with plants, over two floors of bright and airy space. The veg-centric, Nordic menu is the brainchild of chef Jonas Christensen. We’d recommend the set menu – three courses, plus wine for around £50 per head.

KØDBYENS FISKEBAR

Tucked away in the meatpacking district, this is one of Copenhagen’s culinary gems. Kødbyens Fiskebar is a modern, open-plan restaurant designed so customers can watch the raw menu and drinks being prepared, against a backdrop of a large cylindrical fish tank. Offering a spectrum of dishes from traditional fish and chips served in newspaper to sea urchin alongside fantastic service and knowledgeable staff, it’s a great place for gastronomes.

Papirøen

Just opposite the pretty Nyhavn harbour you’ll find Papiroen – Paper Island – home to Copenhagen’s popular street-food market. A great place to hang out at weekend, the market sells global cuisine including Mexican, Brazilian, Vietnamese and Italian, though much of the produce is sourced locally. Grab a craft beer and a burger from one of the many vendors and sit on one of the long benches outside with a view of the harbour, serenaded by live music.
