A lovely welcome and delicious sounding menu...but We were offered glasses of sparkling wine as a welcome drink. These ended up on our bill as £35!! The calamari at £24 were overlooked and dry. The chips at £7 were pale and defrosted. On the good side, a delicious steak and excellent service. Not a place to go in a city... More

We had a fantastic experience at Il Grappolo Blu! They of course have great food, drink, ambiance, and decor, but the highlight is their wonderful staff. Valerio (server) and Mae (host) were the cherry on top of the wonderful sundae that is IGB. They made us feel as if we were guests invited into their home. That’s what a dining... More

We enjoyed a 7-course menu which was really delicious and well-prepared. Moreover, the restaurant is very cosy, the waiters very friendly and accomodating. This restaurant is definately a visit worth if you are in the mood for authentic italian food. In addition, Il Grapolo Blu has an excellent and well-equiped wine cellar where you can taste very good wines which... More

Thank you May-Britt, Peppe and Alfredo for an amazing BBB night with you. The 3 B's stands for Beer, Beef and Brunello. What a great concept to explore the ultimate taste of Italian gourmet food and wine. We started with an ice cold Peroni and home made crispy pizza bread. Then Peppe carefully prepared the two first Brunello di Montalcino's... More

The food was prepared to perfection, great taste and all together good quality. The service was warm and welcoming, relaxed and enthusiastic.... More

It's always a challenge to find gluten free dining in a foreign country, and even more difficult to find good gf options. At Il Grappolo Blu, the food was superb, and the wine selection was excellent. We began our meal with generous glass of a velvety Brunello and my husband ordered the gf pizza. The crust was perfectly crispy while... More

Might not look like a top restaurant from the outside - but don't be fooled - the Michelin stickers around the door tells a different story... The interior might be old and dark, the room acoustic might not be the best, and the decor might be a bit outdated... BUT all of that dont matter - because they can cook... More

Best Italien restaurant north of the alps - maybe I exaggerate a bit, but the atmosphaere, the food, the wine and the staff played so very well together - that you leave the restaurant with a happy smile on your face

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
