Food not bad but just plain uninteresting food with only one exception (fish - pighvar). Several of the dishes tried to be experimental and interesting but were very poorly composed so the overall dish didn't leave any good impression. Definitely not worth it. Copenhagen has much better restaurants - also at a better price.

Went together with my wife for dinner here. We had a couple of interesting drinks in the bar first. Lots of good looking people in the bar and the vibe was ok.service was a bit slow. We ordered eight different small pretty tasty dishes that were ok, but they didnt really peak the top. Wine package selected from the staff... More

This was my second visit to Geist; I wanted to return because I had enjoyed the atmosphere, the "formula" and the cuisine on my first visit 18 months ago. Geist doesn't feel like a typical restaurant - it sits somewhere between a tapas bar and a very classy nightclub with its dark wood, grey walls and funky Danish lighting. The... More

We had the six-courses menu, and were surprised by the creative touch of all our dishes. The free coffee and complementary 'cotton candy' were really appreciated. But you do not need to be there for a cheap meal. Yet, very good and personal service.

Popped in here completely at random whilst visiting Copenhagen. Wanted some authentic Danish food and as the menu on the website came up completely in danish; we decided this was THE place! The restaurant itself is beautiful and all the staff were very polite. The atmosphere was great. The menu is not massive but it's really all you need! If... More

Stopped in with a colleague for small dinner and drinks during a conference. We were both pleasantly surprised by this place! Very inventive small plates to suit a wide range of tastes. The drinks were amazing...the bar staff were very informative and made mixing drinks look like performance art. There were some slow spots with staff, but overall it was... More

Visited with a large business group. On arrival the restaurant entrance was intriguing and the welcome was nice. Staff were quick with drinks and the food came out quickly. Lobster tartar which looked awful but was quite nice, duck with figs which I really didn't like and suckling pig with truffle (doubt it) and artichoke (tons of it) which I... More

Came here on my second night in Copenhagen during a recent business trip with a colleague. I had made a reservation a week prior & when we arrived promptly for our 830pm reservation (on a Friday night), we were seated at the end of the bar facing the kitchen (not in the dining room). The waitress continued to ignore us... More

Some colleagues and I ate at Geist for dinner while on a business trip to Copenhagen in Oct2016. The restaurant has modern and vibrant ambiance and the best that I saw while dining on Copenhagen. The beef tenderloin with beet root was extremely tender and cooked to perfection. I equally enjoyed the duck breast with pumpkin purée. While my two... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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.
